Abstract

Data collection including checking the problem list and analyzing the etiology cannot be overemphasized in full mouth rehabilitation cases. It is well reported that favorable prognosis of prosthodontic treatment depends on accurate diagnosis. Seventy seven year old female patient presented with chief complaints of chewing pain on maxillary and mandibular left premolars and unesthetic existing prosthesis. Clinical evaluation, radiographic examination and cast analysis were performed to gather comprehensive data and problem lists. Treatment planning was based on collected data and related articles. Abutment evaluation, prognosis depending on various types of prosthesis, and maintenance were considered as well. Occlusal vertical dimension was increased to solve esthetic dissatisfaction and insufficient interocclusal space. Patient adaptation was verified with provisional restorations followed by diagnostic wax up. Function, esthetics and occlusal stability were verified during 8 week follow-up period. Prosthodontic reconstruction based on systemic analysis, diagnosis, and treatment plan led to satisfactory result after delivery of definitive prosthesis.
