Abstract: Parts 1 and 2 of this series of articles addressed the clinical assessment of a patient’s occlusal scheme and, where indicated, noted the appropriate occlusal records required to permit further evaluations to take place. This article will focus on the clinical application of the principles discussed previously.

Clinical relevance: Following the assessment and recording of the static and dynamic intra-occlusal relationships, the application of the outcomes to achieve a long-term functional result is necessary to appreciate the relevance in clinical scenarios of the determinants, and their interaction is described.

During this webinar Eoin O’Sullivan will take you through his personal journey with digital scanning, explaining how he found himself in a dilemma when he had to replace his first iTero, after he had assumed that the scanner’s capabilities would transition to focus on orthodontics when it was bought out by Align Technology in March 2011. He will share his thoughts about which scanner would best suit his restorative practice, and why he opted for the next generation of iTero over all the other scanners on the market.
