Abstract

The management of the interim phase of a complete oral rehabilitation in patients with severely worn dentition is often challenging due to loss of occlusal vertical dimension, loss of tooth structure, uneven wear of teeth creating an uneven plane of occlusion, and para-functional habits. This paper will demonstrate how a clear thermo-forming matrix fabricated from the diagnostic wax-up can be used as a guide to facilitate treatment.
