Core II – Aesthetic and Restorative Principles in The Physiologic Practice

This 5-day course is packed with vital information and tons of hands on opportunities to get you thinking like a Physiologic Based Dentist and you will leave with the knowledge and tools you need to start implementing what you learned the first day back in your practice.

This course is designed to be a life-changing, aesthetic, and restorative treatment program with hands-on, personal experience in the management of a Physiologic Orthotic as well as a hands-on workshop focusing on the conservative restoration of the posterior teeth. This program also concentrates on developing a critical eye for aesthetic excellence as well as completing the diagnostic foundation to help patients enjoy a life free of pain and physiologic compromises.

This course includes comprehensive training, practical occlusion concepts, creating a positive philosophical attitude and effective case acceptance principles and appropriate risk management procedures. Together with the attendees you will discuss cases being treated at home as well as cover the wide variety of different preparation designs and considerations. This experience will allow you to make the decisions for the case in a controlled environment and then when you are in your office preparing the actual case you can do it with confidence and precision.

The hands-on treatment portion of the course (USING MODELS) is centered around the conservative restoration of posterior teeth using the latest aesthetic materials that are placed in functional harmony. We will discuss both direct and indirect restorations, materials science/choices and the principles of adhesion.

Adhesion is among the fastest changing part of our profession – getting more predictable and more reliable, but you must know how to use the newer materials if you want to deliver exceptional care. Come to LVI and experience the program built from the life’s work of Dr. Ron Jackson and the decades of clinical experience of Dr. Ed Suh.
