Presenter: Kim Parlett DDS.,MSc.



The problem with traditional gnathology is that dogmatic principles are applied irrespective of individual variation. Modern gnathology recognizes that occlusal concepts are artificial concepts developed for a therapeutic goal which is optimum function. Join Dr Parlett as he guides you through the functional phases of ontogenesis and explains how nature tries to achieve a sequential guidance determined by the individual characteristics of our patients.

These include Horizontal condylar guidance, Anterior Lingual concavity guidance, Occlusal Plane, Cusp Inclination, Vertical Dimension, Compensation mechanisms, and Skeletal Relation. The webinar will show how we can use these variables in our treatment planning to achieve the best function and efficiency in each patient.

Learning Goals:

  1. To introduce some new concepts and some old school instrumentation
  2. Explain how to use different variables of occlusion to optimize function
  3. Rationalize the concept of sequential guidance as a valid therapeutic goal
