Abstract

Rehabilitation of a mutilated dentition is one of the most challenging task for a prosthodontist. Reorganization of occlusion may be required in treating severely worn out denti­tions, developmental anomalies, acquired defects, ill fitting, long span fixed partial dentures and TMJ disorders. Vertical dimension of occlusion, centric relation, occlusal contact pattern, aesthetics and phonetics all have a major role and need to be delicately and precisely balanced simultaneously for both anterior and posterior teeth during occlusal rehabilitations. Different schools of thoughts have been documented for rehabilitation of such cases and the choice of the treatment plan depends on the skill and experience of the clinician. This clinical report describes the full mouth rehabilitation of a severely worn out dentition, in functional harmony with the stomatognathic system.

Keywords: Full mouth rehabilitation, Attrition, Cross Bite, Smile Designing, Occlusion.
