Core IV - Advanced Principles, Case Stabilization and Bite Transfer in the Neuromuscular Practice

The Occlusion II program investigates the in-depth scientific principles of neuromuscular dentistry. This hands-on program will focus on the need to find the orthopedic position of the mandible in space: - “Finding the bite predictability” - Perfecting the TENS bite and use of the Myomonitor skills will be enhanced - Objectively measuring the accuracy of the TENS bite and refining the student’s awareness of the Myobite This course will radically enhance your knowledge of neuromuscular dentistry as it relates to aesthetic dentistry.

The curriculum will lead you to the ultimate goal of effectively treating patients predictably and conservatively through muscle physiology, neuro-physiology and the neuromuscular philosophy. The scientific principles and clinical use of EMG, CMS, ESG and Jaw Tracking will be investigated and understood.
