Diagnosing occlusal imbalances requires the clinician to evaluate the time and force of dentin wear. Occlusal therapies are deemed more effective when objective diagnosis precedes and guides treatment. This largely depends upon the investigative tools available to the clinician, as well as prior dental education and recent literary science.

Occlusal Diseases and the Impact of Microtrauma presents current terminology being utilized within the dental field to analyze the pathology and physiology of occlusal wear and associated maladies. Evaluating relationships between chronic occlusal microtrauma, load force stresses, and solutions to these oral conditions, this video is ideally suited for dental students, academics, and clinicians.
