Hands on Course Information

2019 Toronto, ON

Thursday, September 26, 2019 (8:00 am – 4:00 pm)

Dr. Mark Lin from Toronto, ON

Title: Advanced Fixed Prosthodontics and Functional Occlusion

Location:  Kingsway Room, InterContinental Hotel Toronto

225 Front St W, Toronto, Ontario M5V 2X3

Hands on Course Fee $ 495.00  (Available for Members and then Delegates)

Student Fee $ 150.00 (Based on space availability)

Fees (Include Course with all Materials, breaks and luncheon with all taxes and gratuities)

7 CE Credits

Synopsis:  The rationale, principles and management of the dental occlusion as it applies to our clinical dentistry is of vital importance for the long-term success of our dentistry.  The use of fixed prosthodontics and dental implant further complicates this topic since an osseous integrated dental implant is less tolerant of the biomechanical forces.  Yet, most clinical dentists find this topic complex, confusing and difficult to integrate into private practice.  In addition, when the functional physiologic occlusion has been deteriorated to pathologic or non physiologic occlusion, the restoration and reconstruction of the occlusion can be complex.

This program will address the various topics that are essential to understand the biologic and biomechanical principles required to develop a functional occlusion for our patients for long term stability, comfort and physiologic function. 

Learning Objectives:  

  1. Terminology defined: Centric Relation, Vertical dimension of occlusion, Centric Occlusion, Maximal intercuspal position, hinge axis, mutually protected occlusion and others.
  2. Diagnostic record requirements and case selection for comprehensive functional occlusion therapies
  3. Treatment position of Centric Relation versus Maximal Intercuspation Position
  4. Indications for Centric Relation position as a treatment position
  5. Various options in obtaining accurate repeatable Centric Relation Bite Records
  6. Indications for treatment alteration of the vertical dimension of occlusion
  7. Treatment options to determine the Vertical dimension of occlusion
  8. 5 Components of Masticatory function
  9. Posterior determinants of occlusion
  10. Anterior determinants of occlusion, anterior envelope of function, phonetics and aesthetics
  11. Treatment goals of mutually protected occlusion and occlusal equilibration requirements to achieve stable functional occlusion
  12. Clinical indications for use of facebows and semi-adjustable articulators; is it required, when, where, what type and how?
  13. Definition and treatment options for physiologic occlusion, non physiologic occlusion and therapeutic occlusion
  14. Guidelines, indications and contraindications for occlusal equilibration
  15. Management of parafunctional habits
  16. Applications of digital impressions, CAD / CAM applications to fixed prosthodontics
  17. Management of attrition, abrasion, erosion and abfraction as aetiologies to occlusal instability and physiologic occlusion
  18. Definition for “Terminal Tooth Syndrome” and management protocol
  19. Splint therapies; when, which arch, hard or soft, what type of occlusion?
  20. Various occlusion therapies, theories and applications to clinical dentistry
  21. Implant occlusion; single implant crowns, implant retained removable prosthesis, implant supported fixed hybrid prosthesis, implant fixed porcelain prosthesis.
  22. Implant protected occlusion versus occlusion for natural dentition
  23. Algorithms to sequence full arch or full mouth reconstruction therapies

Model hands on components

  1. Occlusal equilibration to achieve centric relations to maximal intercuspation position, indications and contraindications. Use of T-Scan digital occlusion evaluation for occlusion adjustments
  2. Removable prosthetics occlusal equilibration to achieve balanced occlusion
  3. Diagnostic wax set up for fixed prosthodontics and implant occlusion
  4. Fabrication, adjustments and insertions of occlusal splints to manage parafunctional habits.
  5. Treatment planning of various complicated cases from diagnostic records to step by step sequencing

Bio: Dr. Mark H.E. Lin graduated from the University of Toronto in the Biochemistry Specialists honours program. He received his dental degree from the University of Detroit Mercy in which he was on the Dean’s list for 4 consecutive years and finished within the top 5% of the class. As a senior dental student, he was selected to participate in the world renowned Oral Maxillofacial Surgical Internship program at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas Texas. He then completed a 1-year General Practice Residency program at the Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton Ohio, where he received his training in hospital dentistry, Intravenous sedation and advanced surgical procedures.
