Case description

A single crown being fit in a Class I, canine guided occlusion is a piece of cake when it comes to the occlusion, but that same crown in a Class II Div 1 or AOB patient can result in occlusal errors. This episode is all about sharing a classic technique to prevent occlusal issues in ‘funky occlusions’.

Join us on this special episode as we delve into a game-changing technique – the functionally generated path technique – with the experienced and generous Dr. Tom Bereznicki. Having recently stepped into clinical retirement, Dr. Bereznicki remains a powerhouse in the education scene.
