Description:
In today’s dental office, there's a lot of confusion about when to consider changes in vertical dimension of occlusion and how to safely accomplish the desired goal. Also, with ceramic fractures being the reality in the dental office, understanding the material and methods for managing these incidents are important to be successful in the treatment of these setbacks. In this course, Dr. Hammond will discuss the rationale for ceramic failures and materials for repair, including newer bonding protocols to improve the odds of success, as well as the rationale for increasing vertical dimension and providing guidelines for doing so in a safe and predictable manner.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • recognize common scenarios that are indications for increasing vertical dimensions.
  • identify warning signs that may reduce success for cases where vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) has been increased.
  • implement the technique described for increasing VDO in complete versus incremental modes.
  • describe the basic options for intraoral repair.
  • select the most appropriate bonding protocol based on the clinical scenario.
