Prosthetic rehabilitation in a partially edentulous patient with lost vertical dimension: a clinical report
Keywords:Partial edentulism, vertical dimension of occlusion, fixed partial denture, removable partial denture.
Rehabilitation becomes more challenging with the partial edentulism where bilateral segment is found missing. The collapse of posterior teeth also results in the loss of normal occlusal plane and the reduction of the vertical dimension. This case report describes the rehabilitation of a 65-year old female patient with multiple missing teeth and severe loss of tooth structure. The maxillary arch was restored with fixed partial dentures and the mandibular arch using porcelain fused to metal crowns and removable prosthodontics.
