Core VI – Coronoplasty and Case Finishing – Critical Steps for Physiologic Success

Course Type: Core Curriculum

Core VI is intended to teach you a simple, incredibly precise 1-2-3 clinical technique for refining occlusion on natural dentition, occlusal appliances and prosthetic restorations. Occlusal techniques do not have to be complex – just precise. The simplicity and precision of the techniques taught in this course are made possible by sound scientific and technological breakthroughs that will absolutely amaze you!

This program has been designed as a hands-on experience to teach clinical management of micro occlusal forces on natural and prosthetic dentitions. Participants will first practice the step-by-step coronoplasty procedure on laboratory models, followed by hands-on clinical experience adjusting occlusion on natural dentition and/or an occlusal appliance.

You will be presented information regarding the knowledge and tools to adjust occlusion to microns, rather than millimeters. This is an absolute must program for any dentist managing aesthetic and complex occlusal cases.
