Treatment options for the bruxist and wear patient

This presentation will discuss the aetiologies of tooth wear including stress and bruxism and the influence that occlusion has on bruxism and wear.

The treatment modalities that will be shown include occlusal splint therapy, composite restorations to improve occlusion and ceramic partial and full mouth reconstructions dealing with treatment protocols for design and planning from diagnostic waxing to planning occlusal planes and OVD.

Specific emphasis will be placed on understanding the 5 principles of occlusion and establishing Class 3 leverage when restoring.
