Description

To raise a bite or not to raise? This is the main and often question we face in our daily work. In this conference you will hear concentrated theoretical knowledge with a wealth of practical examples and tips on bite raising and correction of facial asymmetries.

Dr Giedrė Kobs and dental technician Raimundas Bagdonas, who have worked together on numerous patient cases over more than 15 years, will introduce the indications, when it is possible or even necessary to raise the bite and when it is strictly forbidden to do that. The main occlusal keys will be presented as well.

The loss of occlusal bite hight is often accompanied not only by loss of the structures of the occlusal surfaces, but also by the distortion of symmetry of the teeth or face. Because of the deep and distalized bite it is difficult for the dentists and dental technicians to bring back the healthy occlusal contacts. The function-specialist dental technician Stefan Schunke will reveal the key aspects of facial asymmetry treatment:

  • teach you how to rebuild the facial center in accordance with the teeth;
  • introduce in detail the static and functional occlusion of each tooth.
