The restoration of the worn dentition often requires an increase to the existing occlusal vertical dimension. This presentation will cover the pertinent literature relative to changes in OVD and develop a treatment protocol based on 6 specific diagnostic criteria.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Describe and apply an appropriate occlusal philosophy for wear patients.
- Explain the single factor that controls the increase in OVD.
- Illustrate the process used to replicate intraorally what was done on the articulator.
