A multidisciplinary approach to restoration of severely worn dentition: a case report

A V Sreekumar, Mohammed Sajeer PC, Levin Chengappa


Severe caries, attrition  and developemental anomalies  of anterior teeth lead to loss of anterior guidance. This in turn causes attrition of posterior teeth and loss of occlusal vertical dimension of  occlusion. To gain the space for esthetic rehabilitation in these cases is challenging task. The required space can be achieved by crown lengthening and increasing the vertical dimension of occlusion within physiologic limits. We hereby have presented a case report showing the treatment procedure of a patient with severly worn dentition in a simple and systematic multidisciplinary approach to improve the function as well as aesthetics, that also remains in harmony with the entire gnathostomatic system.
