Education in Occlusion Medicine

Keynote Seminars

From Occlusion Diagnostics to Initial Splint Therapy

with Dr. Elod Ury und Thomas Haberl

Any kind of invasive treatment of the masticatory organ without a proper prior diagnosis is irresponsible and dangerous. Systematic functional diagnostics in our everyday practice is mandatory if not obligatory.

The conventional analog method of transferring patient information to semi- or fully adjustable articulators involves several clinical and laboratory steps. These steps are followed by a detailed static and dynamic occlusal analysis of the gypsum casts in the programmed articulators, as part of the puzzle to understand the individuality of every patient.

The widespread use of digital technology and computer-assisted techniques in dentistry has led to considerable changes, including the creation of the virtual dental patient (VDP). Instead of the conventional procedure, direct or indirect digital workflows can be used to transfer a patient's data into a virtual articulator. The indirect digital workflow represents an intermediate option between the analog and direct digital methods and seems to be still more accurate than the direct digital procedure.

The goal of the seminar is showing the step by step procedures of the indirect method from the diagnosis to the splint therapy in the virtual dental space.
