Welcome and Introduction to Course – Dr. Barry D. Hammond


Programming Complex Restorative Cases: A “Global” Approach - Dr. Jeffrey Rouse

Historically, dentists collect large amounts of data, mount casts, and wax teeth based on an occlusal philosophy. They are then expected to make a “global” treatment plan based on a lot of “regional” diagnoses, i.e. caries status, periodontal health, occlusal scheme, etc. It is the purpose of this lecture to present a diagnostic method based on the concept of “global” diagnosis. The guidelines will be distilled into the “CORE Questions” required to diagnose and provide interdisciplinary treatment of the complex restorative patient.

Sleep Prosthodontics: Understanding the WHY Rather Than Treating the HOW 

The popular opinion that malocclusion promotes nocturnal bruxism, tooth wear and oral muscle pain appears to be incorrect. Airway disturbances during sleep rather than occlusal interferences appear to be the link. This presentation provides a review of the current scientific literature on occlusion and sleep disturbances. Upper airway resistance has been associated with TMD, chronic fatigue and bruxism. Obstructive sleep apnea related bruxers will be classically more damaging to their teeth and have greater health risks. The Bruxism TRIAD — sleep bruxism, GERD, and apnea — will be explored.


Questions and Answers

4:15  Adjourn




This presentation is intended to provide the dental practitioner with practical guidelines and principals to aid in the diagnosis and treatment planning of the complex esthetic, restorative patient. Numerous cases will be discussed to illustrate the implementation of these concepts into our daily practices as well as across interdisciplinary modalities of care. The diagnostic aspect will be further expanded to include the effects of Sleep Breathing Disturbances on our patients’ dental health and overall well-being. This part of the program will challenge our traditional way of thinking and hopefully motivate us as clinicians to become more aware of the consequences of this disorder, and our role as health care providers to provide early recognition and make appropriate referrals. 


Following completion of this course, the participants should be able to:


  • Recognize the difference between “global” and “regional” approaches to diagnosis
  • Apply the CORE questions to determine the appropriate course of treatment
  • Describe the three categories of sleep disturbance and their signs and symptoms
  • Recognize the “Bruxism Triad” during the dental examination
  • Discuss treatment alternatives with their patients with regards to bruxism and airway management
