What is the occlusion on the right? How about the left? What does this mean for your patient’s oral health? Occlusion tells you if there is potential for increased tooth loss due to tooth trauma or periodontal issues. It may also be a marker for airway issues, as well as TMJ and migraines that have a major impact on the overall health of the patient. By conducting occlusal evaluations with our patients, we can reduce the immediate physiological impacts of malocclusion.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand what Angles classifications tells us about the patient.
  • Appreciate how occlusion is related to dental and overall health.
  • Understand how to perform a one-minute ortho evaluation and how to discuss it with your patient.

This course is designed for hygienists.
