“Treatment of the Worn Dentition”

This presentation is graciously co-sponsored by Komet USA, LLC


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? What if the teeth can’t be utilized in the final restoration?

This course will review how to properly analyze the worn dentition, suggest a new classification system, and execute a full mouth rehabilitation.

Course Objectives:
 Understand what causes a worn dentition
 Appreciate how classification systems simplify treatment planning
 Treatment plan and sequence appropriately
