CNO 1 – June 9th-10th, 2023

June 9 - June 10


CNO1 Digitally Diagnosing the TMJs and the Occlusion

An introduction to how the joints relate to the occlusion, and how objective metrics can be used to study and potentially improve the occlusion.  The ESSENTIAL, CORE COURSE of the CNO curriculum per testimonials from past attendees, both GPs & specialists alike.  Includes advanced instruction on usage of the T-Scan®, BioEMG®, and JVA, and an introduction to MRI and CBCT imaging technologies.  Faculty: Nick Yiannios DDS, MCNO and John Radke BS, MBA (engineer and Bioresearch technology creator).  FINALLY: a course that objectively measures both the occlusion and the TMJs using digital metrics!


  • An introduction as to how TMJ anatomy and pathology relates to changes in the occlusion
  • Digitally measuring the occlusion, muscles of mastication, & TMJs for everyday dental practice
  • What dental occlusion really is, and how to measure and control treatment outcomes
  • Advanced usage of the T-Scan, BioEMG, and JVA technologies to accomplish DTR or MAGD occlusal adjustment therapies
  • When and WHY’ occlusal adjustment therapies are indicated, and when they are NOT
  • The distinction between TMJ and TMD defined
  • The principles of splintless TMD therapy
  • Disproving the psychosocial TMD theories, objectively and scientifically
  • How the static bite is less important than the dynamic bite in regards to a Measured Anterior Guidance Development
  • Dental hypersensitivity and its occlusal implications in everyday dental practice; an introduction to FDH theory
  • Understanding the Piper Classification of the TMJs in practical terms
  • The importance of stable and adapted TMJ’s for DTR therapy
  • The pitfalls of traditional occlusal indicators such as bite/articulating ribbon, shimstock and waxes, straight from the scientific literature
  • Chairside CEREC CAD/CAM usage to precisely perpetuate additive occlusal changes
  • Why TMJ MRIs and CBCTs are critical for definitive occlusal diagnostics
