This case report demonstrates the use of a bonded functional esthetic prototype in a patient with generalized-severe erosion as a diagnostic aid to increase the vertical dimension of occlusion and preserve tooth structure prior to full…
Following accepted prosthetic concepts — particularly occlusion — is critical to successful long-term outcomes when restoring more complex implant cases.
This denture duplication technique can simplify in-house fabrication of dental implant surgical guides.
Not limited to endodontics, dental dams also offer clinical advantages in restorative dental treatment.
An exploration of using a bonded prototype as a diagnostic aid in cases requiring adjustment of the occlusal vertical dimension.
