Functional Occlusion : From TMJ to Smile Design Hardback


This book uses an interdisciplinary approach to explain the origin of and possible solutions to many different occlusal problems.

Dr. Peter E. Dawson guides the reader along the way providing balanced explanations of theory and technique.

He also debunks many popular misconceptions through practical discussion of their origins and the deficiencies of the arguments behind them.

Different sides of many philosophies are presented while guiding the reader to the most functional and aesthetic solution to various occlusal situations.

Hundreds of full-colour photographs, illustrations, and diagrams show aspects of the masticatory system, the epidemiology of occlusal problems, and procedures for finding the ideal occlusion.

Whether the reader is a general dentist or a specialist, they will find this book applicable to their treatment methods and philosophies.
