Myth-busting Occlusion for the General Dentist

With Dr Barry Glassman

Bruxism is prevalent throughout the UK, however patient awareness of the condition is low. Whilst for some bruxism doesn’t cause any serious problems, for many, the side effects can be painful and persistent. Treatment with an occlusal splint can significantly reduce symptoms

 

Day 1 - Theory session

Led by Dr Barry Glassman, an internationally recognised authority on chronic pain management, this course simplifies occlusion and teaches you the screening methods needed to help patients presenting with bruxism:

  • Occlusion - when it matters and when it doesn’t

  • Design of occlusal splints

  • Non-compliance of splints and how to avoid this

  • Why restorations fail time after time

  • The myths of dentistry that never really made any sense

  • Joint position when contemplating major dentistry – you’ll be surprised!

 

Day 2 - Practical Session

During this session, Dr Glassman will pass on vital practical advice from his many years of experience in the construction, fitting and adjustment of occlusal splints. He will present a live SCi construction masterclass and each delegate will have the opportunity to make and be fitted with an SCi splint.

It is highly recommended that you have attended at least one of Dr Glassman's theoretical sessions, attended last year's seminars, or have watched Dr Glassmans DVD before attending this session.

  • Patient selection
