The Importance of Physiologic Based Dentistry

LVI Global Six Part Webinar Series-$99 for entire series or $49 per episode

 

Don’t miss this webinar series on the Importance of Physiologic Based Dentistry. Physiologic Based science is a broad and all encompassing approach to finding the stable physiologic neutral zone. Historically occlusal theories focused on the hard tissue structures in the system but lacked comprehensive perspective to be able to create predictable outcomes. With the inclusion of the soft tissue analysis along with the hard tissue science, we can arrive at an objective and complete analysis of the entire system including musculature and bone and teeth to create a stable result from multiple perspectives, including posture of the head, neck, body, and jaws. In addition, the muscular balance will create better occlusal stability and long term restorative or orthodontic/orthopedic stability as well as enhanced esthetics for the patient. The continuing education offered at LVI is designed to improve the lives of patients and enhance professional satisfaction.
