Why are my teeth getting so short? – Managing, altering and improving vertical Dimension…An Overview

Many disease processes can cause the loss of vertical dimension of occlusion. Attrition, Germ, Bulimia, Bruxism, and Acid Erosion can all contribute to the process. Identifying and treating the condition requires proper diagnosis, jaw positioning and case design. This program will give a brief overview of a number of techniques and materials that can be used to restore vertical dimension. A step-by-step process of restore vertical dimension will be outlined and discussed. Particular attention will be paid to determining etiology and difficulties clinician may face in restoring vertical dimension.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to diagnose vertical dimension
2. Differentiate between loss of vertical dimension and compensatory eruption
3. Gain a better understanding of the contributing etiologies to loss of vertical dimension
4. Explore different approaches to restoration vertical dimension of occlusion
5. Learn new techniques and materials to assist in simple, predictable results
