This book offers a meticulous analysis of occlusion, one of the most important specialties in dentistry, because a healthy stomatognatic system depends on it. The book covers the dentition, tooth and implant bone, gingiba, tooth and implant-borne prostheses, masticatory muscles, ligaments, TMJ, articular capsules, disks, etc. The problems that can lead to "malocclusion" depend on patient emotional stress, grinding, clenching, and the jaw being out of occlusion and its proper position. The book also covers referred pain, which can mimic joint symptoms caused by neck and masticatory muscle problems. Headaches and facial pain may be diagnosed as being atypical and may be really due to occlusion-related muscle problems (masseters, tmporalis, etc.), including neck muscles. From back cover. 

In recent years, innovative technology has allowed the dental team to use new materials and equipment in the production of prosthetic dental restorations that offer greater precision than conventional protocols. However, many clinicians find themselves struggling to make the transition to a digital workflow. With this book, the authors present the digital workflow they have developed and tested over time as new materials and software have continued to evolve. The accompanying DVD demonstrates the overarching treatment plan protocols, and the authors show what is possible through multiple cases of varying clinical situations. The authors emphasize how to use the intraoral scanner properly and how to integrate the digital workflow with the traditional knowledge and practice. Readers will discover how to assimilate new technology into their daily routine to improve communication with patients and their dental team and increase the quality of their restorations, ultimately enhancing the satisfaction of their patients and the success of their practice.
