Long term neglect of oral health, multiple missing teeth, and severely worn teeth must be restored in order to secure function, aesthetics and comfort.
The disturbances mainly are related to mastication, jaw movements and the function of the jaw joint. The collapse of posterior teeth also results in the loss of normal occlusal plane and the reduction of the vertical dimension resulting to aesthetic problems of the person.
Articulated study casts, together with a diagnostic wax-up, provide the necessary information required for the best treatment planning. In cases of lost teeth, implants can be used to replace the lost teeth and biological prosthetic materials can restore the whole dental arch. Attention should be paid in cases of temporomandibular joint or muscular disorders.
