This course is designed to focus on the four essential components in the decision making process: esthetics, function, periodontology and biomechanics.
Understanding the role occlusion plays relating to wear, mobility, TMD, stability, and restorative failure is critical. This course will provide a hands-on workshop for facebow management and jaw relation records following deprogramming.
- 103: Treatment Planning: Diagnostically Driven
- 153: Functional Occlusion: Science Driven Management
Complete Treatment Planning I & Functional Occlusion I in a condensed 5-day format rather than the single course 3-day format. See Course I and Course II descriptions for further overview.
Understanding the dental gingival complex is critical for predictable management of the soft tissue. Discover why some anterior crown margins become exposed while others stay stable for years.
In Biomechanics, Dr. Kois shares independent research and evidence based guidelines to understand caries detection, removal and prevention; the modes and etiology of tooth structure loss; tooth preparation and design principles utilizing proven dental materials and specific protocols for their use and important laboratory protocols to achieve predictable results.
The use of implants in general practice has created both new levels of excitement and frustration. This course will dispel the “hype”, which is not brand specific, and will focus on what is critical for predictable success. This course presents a step-by-step approach to restoring the challenging edentulous and partially edentulous patient.
Biologic Principles in Advanced Functional Occlusion Understanding the biologic principles involved in developing a functional occlusion is vital to achieving predictable long-term restorative success. Traditionally, occlusion courses have centered on condylar position, muscle tension and gnathologic concepts such as canine guidance and mutual protection. The interpretations of these different [...]
This course is a unique interactive program designed to implement the thought process necessary in creating systematic treatment plans and facilitate complex restorative treatment.
Implementing health and wellness concepts in private practice can have huge benefits in the health of your patients, your practice, and your team - but it must start with you!
This participatory course will focus on the diagnostic mock up and assist the participant in making the transition from the design phase to the clinical application of a proposed treatment plan in simple to complex cases.
Composite resin is sometimes considered a “Second Class Citizen” when compared to porcelain as a final restoration. The conservative nature of the material allows it to be used in a number of different clinical situations for long-term clinical results. This course will provide you with techniques that will allow you to treat a number of everyday clinical situations from the worn dentition, fractured teeth, and missing teeth for increased profitability and outstanding results.
The Digital Smile Design is a four-day course that consists of lectures, live patient demonstrations, and hands-on workshops with Dr Christian Coachman.
The course will take participants through the digital workflow beginning with a new patient experience and extending to cover clinical evaluation, data collection, treatment planning, patient walkout. The course will contain lecture, hands-on exercises. Participants will be guided through a patient appointment that completely utilizes the scanner, photos and the Kois Center’s Methodology for data collection.
This hands-on participation course is for restorative dentist interested in a deeper understanding or a desire to incorporate gingival grafting for root coverage or augmentation purposes.
