The “fashion” for occlusion and physiotherapy – how it has changed over the decades.
The impact of occlusion on the temporomandibular joint – evidence based data
Centric Relation – a measure of success (?), the definition of which has already changed 26 times. What is it and in what situations does it play an important role for us.
Stability of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) – when can it be achieved.
Everyone is worried about the position of the condyle – but what about the position of the articular fossa?
The construction and significance of different TMJ structures from a diagnostic and treatment viewpoint.
STMJ — the concept of the synovial temporomandibular joint
Restricted mandibular movement – what are the norms and why we should not “train” jaw opening in the vertical dimension
The 4:1 Principle in TMJ treatment.
The Rocabado pain map – knowledge that enables an accurate diagnosis of the TMJ as well as a diagnosis of premature occlusal contacts and which also prevents complications from arising when creating a new bite.
WORKSHOP ROCABADO MAP OF PAIN
The influence of cervical vertebrae and their rotation on occlusal problems and TMJ disorders.
Diagnosing C1 and C2 rotation.
Therapy of a locked disk and what should be the care of the patient after the treatment.
Equilibration on the splint with the aim of stabilising the TMJ.
Condylar Vertical Dimension (CVD) and its importance for achieving the correct occlusal plane.
Taking the patient’s history – why properly phrased questions are key to establishing a proper diagnosis.

Acceptable function, restricted path of closure, dysfunction, parafunction, bruxism and neurological disorders:
• Risk assessment and prognosis for the future
• How to diagnosis and treat different groups of patients
• How to tell when someone is “clenching” and when someone is «grinding”
• Clinical case studies
Adaptation – what is it and what are its effects, how to determine whether a patient is already adapted and how to treat patients in cases involving aesthetic-functional reconstruction of the bite.
Chewing patterns and engrams – can we change them and what is their significance for treatment prognosis.
What is deprogramming and what are the criteria for achieving full deprogramming.

• When do we need CR and when MIP suffices.
• At what stage and in what way do we register a bite in different groups (methods such as Dawson’s bimanual manipulation and the gothic arch right through to the leaf gauge, Lucia jig, and the Kois deprogrammer and splint registration – the indications and contraindications for different methods)
• At what stage do we make a diagnosis for particular patients.
• Which group requires physiotherapy and how long can such treatment last.
• Clinical case studies
