OFED-L2Patients wish to keep their natural teeth their entire life, but a great obstacle to this is occlusal disease. occlusal disease (OD) is so prevalent and insidious that it is responsible for most restorative failures and is no less destructive and costly to the patient than tooth decay or periodontal disease. Proper diagnosis and implementation of occlusal therapy is a great benefit to patients, as well as dentists, by making dentistry more predictable and enjoyable.

In this very practical occlusion workshop, you will learn a modern, practical, and scientifically based occlusion philosophy that is methodic and incremental. During the 2-day workshop, you will learn all you need to know about occlusion and occlusal therapy. You will perform examinations to assess the seven signs and symptoms of occlusal disease, learn when and how to take Phase II occlusal analysis records, CR bites, mounted cast, etc. You will learn how to develop a restorative diagnosis while implementing an occlusal strategy. You will also learn and perform additive and subtractive equilibration. This course also includes a system to educate patients about occlusal disease, leading to excellent treatment acceptance and added profits, while maintaining a highly ethical practice.

Why should you learn occlusion from Dr. Ruiz?

  • Hundreds of past participants have said they found occlusion complex and confusing, but after taking Dr. Jose-Luis Ruiz occlusion course, it became simple and easy to understand.
  • All of Dr. Jose-Luis Ruiz’s occlusion philosophy is scientifically based and founded on firm research and literature evidence.
  • This system will make implementing occlusal therapy into your practice a reality! Most other courses are not easy to implement.
