Excellence in Occlusion, Cranio–Mandibular Disorders
and Oral Rehabilitation

This program is one of a kind.

General Objectives:

Level II is for dentists who want to treat more complex cases of C.M.D. (Cranio-Mandibular Disorders). Teaching includes the essential concepts of Professor Slavicek, electronic condylography, computerized cephalometry with an emphasis on Controlled Mandibular Repositioning (C.M.R., a method developed by Dr. Alain Landry in 1994) subject of his masters thesis in 2005. Most schools of thought on C.M.D. have focused on the treatment of neuro-muscular problems. With regard to internal disturbances in C.M.D. cases, these approaches are ineffective and sometimes ill-advised. For this reason, Controlled Mandibular Repositioning was developed. This method dramatically increases the success rate of internal derangement cases.
Training Objectives:
What this training offers practitioners:
Deeper knowledge and full understanding of:
The physiology of the mastication system and its functions
Different pathologies of the masticatory system
Diagnosis of cases by a thorough assessment of functions, on an case by case basis:
Electronic Condylography
Condylar Position Measurement
Elaboration of a treatment plan which meets the real needs of the patient
Is a Phase I, inter-disciplinary for eliminating clinical signs and symptoms
Definitive Therapy (phase II)
How to work in an interdisciplinary team
In the event where a phase I is deemed necessary, choose the optimal cranio-mandibular relationship for a given patient before attempting a mandibular repositioning.
Controlled Mandibular Repositioning (C.M.R.) A method for treating severe cases of Cranio-Mandibular Disorders (C.M.D.) by learning :
  The use of a varying mandibular positioning
The elimination of reduced luxations (estimated success rate : 95%)
The elimination of the tenderness to the palpation without medication
(success rate with statistical data:  95%) (see C.M.R. statistics.)
  How to treat cases of non-reduced laxations either recent or chronic
How to treat arthrosis cases and cases which have had high condylectomy
When clinical signs and symptoms of dysfunction are solved, and treatment can proceed to the final stages (Phase II), clinicians need to have methods which allow them to go from Phase I to Phase II without the loss of the cranio-mandibular relationship which was established at the end of Phase I whatever the Phase II therapy would be.
Removable prothesis
Fixed prosthodontics
Orthognathic surgery
Ample teaching which reinforces practical application of above-mentioned objectives.

Advantages of this training:

More confidence in diagnosing and elaborating treatment plans related to the patient’s condition whether the patient is in Phase I, transition phase I - phase II or total therapy, in other words:
Removable prothesis
Permanent prothesis Implantology (prosthodontic)
Orthognathic surgery
Learn to work in an interdisciplinary team with colleagues from the profession :
Specialists in oral medecine
Maxillo-facial Surgeons

Or other health professionals :

  General Practitioners

Or professionals from the para-medical system :

Other Practitioners (acupuncturists, auriculotherapists)
Format : five modules of three days each.
Each module includes one day of theory followed by two days of hands-on between participants and patients. (your own patients or patients referred by the Institute).

limited to 15 participants.

Services offered after completing Level II :
Study Group Level II (3 times/year)
Consultation service and case analysis
