How to Manage Alternate Occlusal Schemes

When a patient has an active R TMCC pattern that needs occlusal management, a lower MOOO style bite splint is my go-to intervention. But not all malocclusions are created equal, and the question comes up frequently on how to manage a bite with various degrees of malposition and alternate occlusal schemes. I have attached a resource on how I manage missing teeth, transposed teeth, cross bites and open bites; and the thinking that goes into why I choose to deviate from the standard design process with various malocclusions.
