Occlusion Made Easy
Occlusion or more precisely the occlusodontology as a discipline is struggling to fi nd its place in the university curriculum. As part of the fundamental sciences, the teaching takes place before the commencement of clinical practice for students who do not fully appreciate the tangible outcomes.
The few opportunities to put occlusion into practice in university dental care centers lead to graduates who consider the fi eld of occlusion as a complex discipline, beyond the reach of the general dentist and rather reserved in a panel specialists.
The aim of this book is to demystify these a priori and demonstrate the essential place of the occlusion in daily practice from simple occlusal fi lling, to prosthetic treatments .
In the same way that the music theory is the basis for the musician, few basic concepts are essential to understand the masticatory apparatus as a whole and the interactions of its various components.
Co-written by clinicians and university teachers, the concepts outlined in this work are the synthesis of a long clinical practice and pedagogy.
We wanted to give a large place to the iconography in all chapters to enhance reading and facilitate comprehension.
We will give in this book the answers to the questions that a large number of general dental practitioners and students may have, in order they can fi nally consider the occlusion… made easy.
