In order to maximize Longevity and Predictable beautiful results, a new approach has been developed by Dr. Becker. This seminar allows you to combine time proven esthetic principles with occlusally driven parameters. You will find the almost magical relationship between smile analysis, functional, and parafunctional guidelines that answer the long standing and nagging question: “How long do we make the new Central Incisors?” Once mastered, you will know precisely how to determine central incisor position, cuspid length and why esthetics is really a sub set of anterior guidance.
Audiences are amazed at how straight forward the diagnostic work-up becomes after understanding this new use of combining facially generated esthetics with certain specific occlusal principles. Ultimately the missing piece of this anterior guidance puzzle lies in the obvious need to observe and often correct the lower incisal irregularities.
Perhaps a more important benefit achieved by attending this seminar is the clear understanding you will have regarding why esthetic edges may not have the long lasting results hoped for by doctor and patient. As you master the ability to achieve a smooth cross-over, not only are the esthetic results achieved, but they function smoothly and have the built in tendency to actually hold up over many years of service.
Participants will be given case histories and all pertinent findings on patient’s that have both occlusal and esthetic concerns. Together, we will develop a predictable thought process relative to the treatment planning and diagnosis of these rather complex situations.
Considerations of anterior guidance, plane of occlusion, as well as specific esthetic and smile design factors will all be brought into clear focus. The corrections of both form and function aspects will be corrected and learning points along the way will be specifically pointed out.
PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO:
- Understand the basics of the Trial Equilibration
- Articulate the benefits of combining both functional and esthetic considerations.
- Know what clinical and photographic data is essential to complete this kind of everyday case.
- Manage and coordinate in a very practical manner these kinds of patient situations.
- Better communicate to the Laboratory Technician the prescription of the needed functional and esthetic requirements of esthetical challenging cases.
"I want to thank you for making such a difference in my life, my families lives and the health of my patients. You have taught me that ethical people commit without compromise to passionate pursuits. My life could not have been the same unless I learned that lesson and because of you, I know what's important and how to achieve it."
Dr. Brad Portenoy
"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn and grow. You gave me the single most meaningful educational experience of my life. I feel I more prepared than ever to make a difference in my patients lives. I truly appreciate how comfortable you make it for me to be out of my comfort zone."
"You did a great job making the information understandable. It was truly life and career changing. Thanks again Dr. Becker. You are the best teacher I have ever had."
