Patients often present needing “just one tooth fixed,” but when you look in their mouth a
collapsed vertical dimension leaves no space for a restoration. One tooth becomes a whole
mouth and instantly the entire case escalates. How do we recognize the signs of worn
dentition? How do we treatment plan and execute a flawless full mouth rehabilitation? How do we stage a case if real world financial considerations need to be addressed?
1. Understand the classes of a worn dentition (Turner)
2. Understand the importance of centric relation and how to find it
3. Be able to determine vertical dimension using a variety of methods
4. Treatment plan and treatment sequence appropriately
5. Appreciate the materials that can be utilized
6. Understand staging for real world dentistry
