Opening the webinar, Dr. Tran Ngoc Quang Phi said: “According to a survey I conducted earlier on 65 people including faculty colleagues and students of the Faculty of Dentistry, it was found that because the definition of the touch point is very long and difficult to remember, almost never mentioned in practice. In the survey, 48 people did not know about muscular touch points and only 17 people heard about it. So today I am going to explain the nature of the touch point so that everyone can understand it better.”

Besides, with many years of practice and teaching experience, Dr. Tran Ngoc Quang Phi found that the point of touching can flexibly change depending on the person's head posture, so most are easily confused. In a straight head position, the normal point of contact will coincide with the maximal intercuspal position

Continuing to investigate the clinical application of the touch point with the number of people who already know this concept, Dr. Phi received 11 answers for TMJ = Temporomandibular joint treatment, the remaining 5 answers were used for dental prosthesis

In turn, the concepts and characteristics, the important role of the muscular contact position were explained in detail by Dr. Tran Ngoc Quang Phi, with real-life examples of normal and dysfunctional touch points. Thereby, students understand the importance of the touch point better to apply in practice later.
