In these 3 lectures, recorded at the 2nd DentinalTubules Annual Global Congress October 2018, Dr’s. Kushal Gadhia, Mahul Patel and Riaz Yar discuss the good, the bad and the unknown aspects of occlusion.

Occlusion - the good - Dr. Kushal Gadhia

In this video, Dr. Kushal Gadhia covers the "good", detailing the importance of recording occlusion. Providing an overview of how occlusion, and the physiology of the periodontal ligament, are related, the determinants of occlusion and thus the force distribution. Dr. Gadhia  stresses the importance, and relevance, of anterior guidance and why it is important to start from this when rehabilitating patients.

Aims and objectives:

  • The importance of recording occlusion
  • Gain an understanding of how occlusion and the physiology of the periodontal ligament are related, the determinants of occlusion and thus the force distribution
  • The importance, and relevance, of anterior guidance and why it is important to start from this when rehabilitating patients

Occlusion - the bad - Dr. Mahul Patel

Dr. Mahul Patel discusses the "bad". Providing 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 stresses the importance of this factor in your treatment of cases. Showing cases where complications occurred due to severe bruxism, anterior open bites, excessive loading, and uncertain teeth arrangements.

Aims and objectives:

  • Gain an overview of cases where the uncertain and difficult aspects of occlusion can result in either a compromise, or unpredictable outcomes of treatment
  • The importance of this factor in the treatment of cases
  • Understand, through cases, where complications occurred due to severe bruxism, anterior open bites, excessive loading and uncertain teeth arrangements

Occlusion - the unknown - Dr. Riaz Yar

Dr. Riaz Yar details the "unknown". Covering 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 dysesthesia.

Aims and objectives:

  • Understand why sometimes patients appear with non-specific pain, related to some restorative changes conducted by clinicians
  • Dr. Yar provides an alternative view of what may be causing these changes in patients
  • Gain an overview of adaptation plasticity in patients, while he discusses the possible aspects of what may happen in patients with reduced plasticity - who instead have occlusal dysesthesia/occlusal vigilance
