Dr. Hines is participating in a mini-residency at the Los Angeles Institute of Clinical Dentistry and Ruiz Dental Seminars as part of a continuing education program that consists of 6 total courses and will be completed in 2021. Continuing education courses like these provide Dr. Hines with advanced training on the latest dental techniques so he can continue to deliver exceptional results for his patients.
The Ruiz Dental Seminar focuses on a philosophy based in occlusal therapy, which treats the dental condition resulting from misaligned teeth that, in turn, cause a misaligned bite. A misaligned bite can result in dental problems, such as:
- Worn down and fractured teeth
- Damage to dental work, such as fillings and crowns
- Loose teeth
- Teeth that shift out of place
- Receding gums
- Pain of the jaw joint, popping or clicking with movement of the jaw
Occlusal therapy improves the oral health of patients by treating misaligned teeth, which is especially important for occlusal patients undergoing a dental treatment such as implants. The underlying problem of occlusion must be addressed first, or it could negatively impact the restoration.
Dr. Hines’ commitment to continuing education benefits patients in many ways. He is constantly striving to improve treatments and make patients more comfortable. What’s more, he is able to apply cutting-edge techniques that shorten treatment times and provide more predictable outcomes. You’ll spend less time in the chair and more time enjoying a healthy smile.
