Description

Occlusion and occlusal concepts are very important in the practice of
dentistry. Yet, they are often imperfectly understood and incorrectly
applied in clinical practice. The use of implants brings additional
occlusal challenges that need to be confronted. This lecture will review
the fundamental occlusal concepts and highlight their clinical use
within the realm of implant prosthodontics.


Objectives


* to review basic occlusal concepts of Centric Occlusion, Centric Relation, Maximum Intercuspation, Vertical Dimension of Occlusion, Physiologic Occlusion and their clinical relevance

* to review the relationship between periodontics and occlusion

* to highlight differences between natural teeth and osseointegrated
implants and the impact of this on the occlusal interface
