8:00 – 8:30  REGISTRATION

8:30 – 10:00   CLAYTON A. CHAN, D.D.S. – LAS VEGAS, NV

OPENING REMARKS: “TO BOLDLY GO WHERE  NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE”

ONE CANNOT MOVE FORWARD UNLESS THERE IS DESIRE FROM WITHIN TO MOVE FORWARD. A DESIRE TO MOVE FORWARD DOES NOT OCCUR UNLESS THERE IS AN AWARENESS, PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND VISION THAT CREATES A GREATER PERSPECTIVE.  THE DENTIST AND HIS TEAM MUST REALIZE THAT THERE IS SOMETHING MORE TO EVERY DAY ROUTINE DENTISTRY – THIS WHY A VISION MUST BE BORN WITHIN EVERY DENTIST.  AS ONE BECOMES EXPERIENCED AND SEASONED IN DENTISTRY THE DENTIST BEGINS TO SEARCH FOR ANSWERS AND UNDERSTANDING TO QUESTIONS THAT HE/SHE KNOWS HAS NOT ADEQUATELY  BEEN ANSWERED WITHIN THE CLASSICAL  TEACHINGS OF DENTISTRY AS THEY RELATE TO THE VARIOUS TMD, RESTORATIVE AND ORTHODONTIC CLINICAL PROBLEMS ONE SEES IN THE EVERYDAY PRACTICE.  THE DENTIST SOON REALIZES THEIR IS NEED FOR A LIFE CHANGE IN THOUGHT AND PRACTICE STYLE.

– FROM CENTRIC TO GNEUROMUSCULAR – AN EXISTENCE OF A UNIFYING FACTOR?

THE ACTION-REACTION LAW – ATLAS-AXIS-OCCIPUT AND THE RELATION WITH THE OPTIMIZED BITE

IN THE LAST 10 YEARS THE EVOLUTION NEUROMUSCULAR THINKING HAS INCORPORATED MULTIDISCIPLINARY ASPECTS THAT INVOLVE A MORE COMPREHENSIVE DIAGNOSTIC AND TREATMENT. WE ARE MORE AWARE OF POSTURAL CHANGES, FACIAL ASYMMETRIES , AIRWAY AND HOW TO FIND A MORE OPTIMIZED POSITION.  THIS IS WHAT I CALL THE PROGRESSION OF NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY.

WE ARE ALL FAMILIAR WITH THE DIFFERENT SPECIAL RELATIONS. WE ALL TALK ABOUT PITCH, JAW , ROLL AND MOSTLY FOCUS IN THE MAXILLARY ARCH AND THE MANDIBULAR POSITION. BUT IN REALITY THIS THREE DIMENSIONAL REFERENCE CAN BE USED TO ANALYZE THE POSTURAL CHANGES. TALKING ABOUT THE MAXILLARY PLANE, IT IS ATTACHED TO THE SKULL BUT THE SKULL IS SUPPORTED BY THE CERVICAL SPINE. MISALIGNMENT OF ANY OF THESE STRUCTURES WILL CREATE A REACTION IN THE FOLLOWING STRUCTURE. THIS WILL COMPROMISE THE REACTION OF THE SKULL ON THE NECK AND WILL AFFECT THE POSITIONING OF THE OCCLUSAL PLANE AND THE TEMPORO MANDIBULAR JOINTS. THEREFORE, AFFECTING THE MANDIBULAR POSITION AND THE RANGE OF MOTION.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO USE SOME OF DR. ROCABADO’S CONCEPTS IN THE ANALYSIS OF THE CERVICAL STABILITY AND CONNECT THEM WITH THE NEUROMUSCULAR CONCEPT AND THE RELATION WITH THE OPTIMIZED BITE.  THIS LECTURE WILL DESCRIBE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ATLAS-AXIS-OCCIPUT AND THE INFLUENCE IN THE MANDIBULAR POSITION AND VICEVERSA. IT WILL BE SUPPORTED BY SOME CLINICAL CASES I DEVELOPED WITH DR. ROCABADO.

 •  DEMONSTRATE COMPROMISED CERVICAL CASES AND DIFFICULTY IN THE STABILITY OF THE OPTIMIZED BITE.

 •  NECESSARY RECORDS TO ANALYZE THE CERVICAL DYNAMICS: XRAYS, PHOTOS, PROTOCOLS.

 •  NORMAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE CRANIOCERVICAL DYNAMICS AND THE RELATION WITH MANDIBULAR POSITION.
