Abstract

There are no clear objective guidelines that determine the ideal increase in the vertical dimension of occlusion that can be physiologically accepted by the patient. The aim was to report a clinical protocol of four steps for the re-establishment of the vertical dimension of occlusion of a dentate patient with a complete digital workflow. Involving the dynamics of the CAD/CAM system with your three phases, the data acquisition through intraoral scanners, software for designing virtual and computerized manufacturing of the restoration, and subtractive and additive processes, the present clinical protocol represents an interesting and high efficiency alternative in the simplification and dynamization of the rehabilitation of re-establishment of the vertical dimension of occlusion of a dentate patient. As a benefit, there is a favor for the production of more accurate restorations with the demand of less clinical time and promotion of greater patient comfort.
