Mastering Occlusal Equilibration

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD & Valinda Johnston, BS, CDA

We are seeing unprecedented levels of cracked natural teeth, TMD, and tooth loss because of occlusal malfunction. Rigid, wear-resistant current crown materials no longer accommodate the patient’s occlusion. You must manually adjust your restorations to the patient’s masticatory system. Zirconia and lithium disilicate require meticulous occlusal adjustment for harmonious, comfortable, painless function. Our participants have praised Gordon’s simple, logical, and practical tips for occlusal equilibration mastery. In this video, learn and observe the best concepts, procedures, and materials for occlusal equilibration, as Gordon demonstrates in live detail the fastest, easiest, and best ways to produce optimum occlusion. Master occlusion concepts and make them routine and predictable procedures in your practice today!
