Course Description for Implant Occlusion course:
Occlusion continues to be a confusing subject to many practicing dentists because of multiple occlusal philosophy’s that are often blended anecdotally to each individual dentist’s comfort zone. Unfortunately this can lead to inaccurate diagnosis, premature failure of restorations, higher lab bills and unhappy patients. Considering the costs of dental implant therapy and the potential for occlusion to affect implant fatigue and potential breakage, having a solid implant occlusion philosophy is essential for happy patients, durability of restorations and dentists peace of mind.
This lecture will characterize the biomechanical differences between natural teeth and the dental implant complex followed by a well defined and time tested occlusal philosophy used in the majority of dental schools in the United States.
Course Description for Managing the Geriatric Patient:
In the 1900’s only 4% of the population was over 65 years old. In 2 years, 2026 over 20% of the US population will be over 65 years old equating to around 50-60 million people. This group dominates the time physicians and dentists will spend delivering care and the dollars spent on healthcare. The geriatric patient has unique needs and medical challenges that may discourage dentists from treating this demographic. This lecture will define some of the major challenges to treating the geriatric patient with modern approaches to help dentists treatment plan appropriately and safely.
Treatment approaches discussed will follow protocols taught by the USC School of Dentistry's Department of Geriatric Dentistry, Oral Medicine Special and Special Patient Clinic.
