Dr Michael Melkers recorded at the Dentinal Tubules Global Congress, October 2019.
Aims and objectives:
Understanding what the "dots" mean when we record occlusion after placing restorations
Understanding the difference between load and shear forces
Understanding what causes restorations or teeth to fracture
Therefore gaining an understanding of what records to take to record the occlusion during placement or cementation of a restoration
Understanding forces on teeth and how posterior disclusion, canine guidance and anterior guidance reduce forces on the teeth
