  Functions and Dysfunctions of the Craniofacial
and Masticatory Systems

In the core curriculum every student will conduct the diagnostic work-up, documentation and planning for 10 patients. Initial therapeutic measures may already be started in the core module. Diagnosis and planning will involve interdisciplinary networking.

The initial diagnostic measures serve to establish the functional condition of the patient and then determine the potential for therapy. Consultations with the dentist, functional therapist, orthodontist, or involving additional specialties, will serve to establish the initial therapeutic steps with the purpose of deciding the definitive therapy. Initial therapy includes medication for acute pain, physiotherapeutic interventions, behavioral therapy, biofeedback and hypnosis. Alternatives based on complementary medicine will be addressed; targeted occlusal therapy and aids for conditions of muscular and occlusal origin will also be studied. A special section will be devoted to conservative and invasive treatment of the craniomandibular joints. The creation of a treatment plan for the section Initial therapy
will be a subject of common concern throughout
the course.

Patients who require more extensive orthodontic measures will be documented
by the students. Then treatment will then be
planned in an interdisciplinary manner together
with orthodontic specialists and the patients will
be treated during the course.

Occluso-articular preliminary treatment
and preliminary treatment of the temporomandibular joints

Planning will be based on diagnostic grinding and diagnostic wax-up on the pin model. Preliminary treatment of the craniomandibular joints will be conducted by means of individual occlusal therapy and the use of aids.

Preliminary periodontal treatment will also be discussed in the team and conducted by the students under the supervision of specialists.

Individual basic restoration and endodontic measures that may be required will also be conducted by the students under the supervision of experts.

Oral surgery, if required, will be performed either independently by the team or by qualified oral surgeons of Danube University Krems. This also applies to the combined planning of implant prosthetics and the subsequent steps of surgery.


Content and Structure of the Core Curriculum :

Basic Principles

Module A:

Functional feedback control system

The path to diagnosis and therapy

Structures of the masticatory organ

Evolution of man, evolution of the masticatory organ

Clinical and instrumental diagnostics

Lateral X-rays: theory and practice

Theory and Demonstration of the Practical Application of Functional Diagnostics

Module B:

Medical history and the Occlusal index

Summation of results

Transfer of the hinge axis

Correlation of findings

Additional diagnostics

Instrumental functional analysis

Imaging procedures

Theory and practice of cephalometry

Theory and Practice of Instrumental Registration of Lower Jaw Movement

Module C:

History of joint path registration


Transfer of the coordinate system into
  (the imaging technique)


The imaging technique


Graphic registration of joint paths

The individually milled joint path

Practical aspects of the hinge axis

Theory and Practice of so-called Regular Dentition

Module D:

The arch of the active centric

Diagnostic wax-up

The concept of the occlusal plane

Diagnostic set up

The sequential concept of the excentric

Occlusal measures such as basic restoration

The front teeth

Occlusal harmonization (grinding and set-up, provisional therapeutic aids)

The canine tooth


Periodontal conditioning

Case documentation / Case planning

Module E:


Live demonstration based on model patients

Diagnostic re-evaluation

Decision concerning therapy

Independent development of solutions

Practical implementation

Final treatment plan and cost plan

Discussion of patient documentation

Educating the patient

Viability and affordability, economy from a social viewpoint

Management of the processes of therapy

Final examination

Module F:


Personal presentation of the documented patient cases by the course attendees

Final summary of all topics of the course

Discussion of treatment plans

Final examination on theoretical chapters and patient documentation

Goal of the Core Curriculum:

The essentials of collecting reports and carrying out diagnostic procedures will be taught. After the course the attendee will be in a position to identify and execute all diagnostic steps in the functionally disturbed patient, and design a treatment plan based on such knowledge.
