Abstract

Teeth wear and extrusion of antagonist are commonly observed in deep bite patient having severe vertical and horizontal overlap. These problems cause collapse of occlusal plane and abnormal anterior guidance. Without restoring harmonious occlusion, loss of multiple teeth and decreased masticatory function could not be prevented. To resolve problems associated with deep bite, multidisciplinary treatment including oral surgical, orthodontic and prosthetic treatment should be performed. This clinical report describes the results of increasing occlusal vertical dimension with a full-mouth restoration procedure. The treatment procedures include extraoral and intraoral examination, diagnosis, treatment planning, diagnostic wax-up, segmental osteotomy, orthodontic intrusion and prosthodontic rehabilitation. Full mouth rehabilitation with increasing occlusal vertical dimension can solve esthetic and functional problems.
