The Dawson Academy's Art & Science of Equilibration

December 5 – 7, 2019

This hands-on program will teach Dentists how to implement a process of occlusal therapy within their dental practice. Participants will be shown the importance of the trial equilibration and given the opportunity to adjust several different case types.

Learning Objectives:

  • Design a stable, minimal stress occlusion (lines on the front, dots on the back).
  • Recognize when to equilibrate your patient, and when other options should be considered.
  • Identify how to schedule the equilibration appointment.
  • Choose appropriate articulation paper to mark each type of occlusal interference.
  • Assess when an occlusal splint should be considered prior to reshaping, repositioning or restoring.
  • Evaluate how to efficiently equilibrate the natural dentition.
  • Select, train and work with a dental assistant to efficiently adjust an occlusal splint and/or equilibrate the dentition.
  • Verify when to use a full arch occlusal splint, and when to use an anterior deprogramming appliance.
