The Must Know Rules for Occlusal Health
By Jose-Luis Ruiz, DDS

Proper occlusal management is indispensable for all dental procedures and for any specialty. How we manage the patient’s occlusion will greatly influence the outcome of most dental procedures, including simple and complex restorative procedures, as well as endodontic, implant, orthodontic and periodontal procedures. Good working knowledge of occlusion will greatly aid dentists during differential diagnosis procedures of dento-facial pain, which often is related to occlusal problems.
