Getting to the heart of occlusion
During this 45-minute session, Ashish will share his experiences and suggestions on developing a stronger approach for addressing everyday occlusal challenges. As founder of The Academy by Ash and a leader within the field, Ashish runs inspirational courses for dentists on practice growth and success, as well as on cosmetic, restorative and occlusion dentistry. He is ideally placed to offer practical and useful tips on simplifying occlusion.
Ashish’s webinar will cover the benefits of using a face bow and articulator for cosmetic and restorative dental procedures. Centric occlusion versus centric relation will also be discussed, with an emphasis on when to open up the vertical dimension and how to use it. As well as gaining an insight into smile makeover, tooth wear and dental implant cases at Smile Design by Ash, clinicians will learn more about the use of Shimstock paper and the “Two-Phase Articulation Paper System”.
Another exciting concept that Ashish will explore is how to use the innovative T-Scan device to measure both force and timing of occlusal contacts, which are two of the most fundamental parameters for measuring occlusion. The T-Scan developed by Tekscan is dentistry’s only clinically recognised and research-validated digital occlusion analysis system. This state-of-the-art technology is designed to help clinicians identify premature contacts, high forces, and the interrelationship of occlusal surfaces – important data that cannot be captured by traditional analogue methods like articulating paper alone.
