About the online course
The goal of this series of webinars is to integrate the series on temporomandibular disorders to dismantle classical gnathology concepts. Anatomical and (bio)logical reasonings will be the basis of discussion, with particular focus for suggestions to the category of professionals who are routinely involved in the muddy waters of occlusal practice (i.e., orthodontists, prosthodontists, restorative dentists).

Course Program
There are some communities of clinical practitioners claiming that, based on their anecdotic experience, there is a relationship between dental occlusion and body posture, not to say temporomandibular disorders. Those theories may be fascinating for the poor patients who search for pain relief, but they are scientifically unfounded and expose patients to unnecessary overtreatments that, in an era of evidence- and ethics- based medicine, are not acceptable.
  • Role of dental occlusion and body posture. Is there a relationship between them?
  • Should the treatment be based on the theory of the connection between dentistry and body position?
  • Are there clinically important relationships between dentistry and body?
