These are three lectures looking at the good aspects, the bad aspects and the unknown aspects of occlusion. 

Dr Kushal Gadhia covered the "good" in this talk. This talk covered the importance of recording occlusion, an understanding of how occlusion and the physiology of the periodontal ligament are related, the determinants of occlusion and thus the force distribution. Dr Gadhia therefore stresses the importance and relevance of anterior guidance and why it is important to start from this when rehabilitating patients.

Dr Mahul Patel covered the "bad" in this talk. This talk covered a good overview of cases, where the uncertain and difficult aspects of occlusion can result in either a compromise or unpredictable outcomes of treatment. Dr Patel therefore stresses the importance of this factor in your daily treatment cases. He shows cases where complications occurred due to severe bruxism, anterior open bites, excessive loading and uncertain teeth arrangements.

Dr Riaz Yar covered the "unknown" in this talk. This talk covered the unknown areas of occlusion. Sometimes patients appear with non-specific pain related to some restorative changes conducted by clinicians. While clinicians may be unable to identify the cause of these, Dr yar provides an alternative view of what may be causing these changes in patients. He discusses the adaptation plasticity in patients, while he discusses the possible aspects of what may happen in patients with reduced plasticity - who instead have occlusal dusthesia occlusal vigilance.
