Mastering Advanced Splint Therapy

Download Flyer

If you are ready to take what you know about appliance therapy to the next level, then this course is a must. The anatomic appliance is one of the most impactful diagnostic and therapeutic tools for designing occlusal schemes that can lead to predictability in restorative care. The anatomic appliance is the only splint that can truly preview the occlusion and restorative design for a patient. It is also a wonderful tool that can create experiences for co-discovery with our patients that leads to ownership of their present condition. It can lead to patients better understanding the appropriate treatment and care needed. In this hands-on program, you will get to experience the role of the patient and the doctor, expanding both your technical and behavioral skills in splint therapy. You will learn how to use the anatomic appliance to achieve predictability and longevity in your patient’s dentition and your restorative dentistry.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

– Hands-on fabrication and adjustment of an anatomic bite splint.
– Observe and apply what people uniquely do with their teeth on an acrylic bite splint.
– Use an anatomical splint for co-diagnosis.
– Transfer what we learn from an anatomic bite splint to the equilibration and restorative treatment plan with predictability.
– Provide another tool in your “bite splint toolbox” for individualized differential diagnosis and treatment of TMD and OMD (occlusal-muscle dysfunction).
