I throw this out there as a CHALLENGE TO ALL CANADIAN DENTAL CE PROVIDERS. This particular event in my opinion should be simulcast. In this era of a bazillion materials mixed and matched in the dentition – NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN OCCLUSION!!!!! Set a black-out area so as not to risk the attendance at the real time event, but then work with WHOMEVER to SIMULCAST the presentation and archive it……..when are CE providers going to grow up and realize – it’s the Internet era…….you can present in real time and online simultaneously………they PAY PER VIEW boxing and wrestling for criminy sakes…..and if the Romans had the Internet, they’d have simulcasted to the outreaches of the empire as well………………if you read this, contact the Toronto Implant Institute and ask them – WHY IS THIS EVENT NOT BEING SIMULCAST – Natalie honey are ya listenin’?……they won’t respond, they’ll ignore you, or me, but repeat the request, ask your lab to contact them and determine if there is a recording being archived… anon……start a ground swell, start a swell ground swell, swell a ground hog……but DO SOMETHING, it’s the 21st century!!! And by the by, if it were a series of webinars by Dr. Kois from his home base, wouldn’t be a costin’ ya close to 2K and time outta the office…….just my .02 cents.

FUNCTIONAL OCCLUSION: Current Challenges Understanding the role occlusion plays is important for the long-term success of our restorative dentistry. Our knowledge about occlusion has been based on gnathologic principles. These concepts are the basis of a mechanical system with focus on posterior determinants and mutual protection. If it is that simple, why can’t we predict when or why occlusal pathology develops or why can’t we always create a therapeutic occlusion? This program will focus on biologic principles necessary for developing a functional occlusion. New paradigms will be presented to enlighten participants about understanding occlusal dysfunction. This focus will develop principles for force management of the masticatory system and parameters to determine the most appropriate occlusal scheme. By focusing on key elements, the practitioner will be able to predict more successful restorative results and know when complex treatment is not necessary.From this lecture participants will learn:
· Understand the various occlusal philosophies and the role they play in restorative dentistry · Become familiar with the multitude of factors that contribute to tooth wear · Learn five functional diagnoses that help establish functional risk and prognosis · Achieve accurate diagnostic records by gaining an understanding of how and when to deprogram the masticatory system · Protocols to implement treatment planning strategies.
