Aims

In this webinar, Professor Raja Rayan gives us an insight into the mechanics of teeth in relation to the function of the gnathological apparatus and the science (or lack of it) behind its concepts. He aims to demystify the subject and provide easy, practical and relevant solutions to most problems encountered in the practice.

Learning content 

In this webinar Professor Raja Rayan will explore the relationship of teeth in the study of occlusion using the tools of recording and reproducing occlusion to discuss what is practical and possible for its understanding. The topics covered include facebrow records, evidence-based dentistry, the occlusal triad, and tooth mechanics.
