Compromised Facial Appearance ?A Delima? Rehabilitated with the Metal Alloys and Porcelain: A Case Report.

Author(s):Ganaraj Shetty and Natasha Shetty*

Background: The occlusal wear of all the natural teeth is a continuous process happening throughout the lifetime. As in today’s world of dentistry, it’s a common task to replace and/or rehabilitate the entire maxillary and mandibular dentition. Though the treatment of generalized attrition can be a more complicated/complex procedure, Hobo’s and Takayama’s twin stage technique is the most commonly used technique to rehabilitate generalized attrition. Discussion: The principal objective behind the rehabilitation of the entire dentition is to preserve the health of the Stomatognathic system, with the restoration of optimum functional balance and aesthetics with the least invasive procedures. This case report demonstrates a full mouth rehabilitation of generalized attrition using Hobo and Takayama’s twinstage procedure for a patient with aesthetically and functionally compromised dentition. Conclusions: Full-mouth rehabilitation is the treatment of choice in the management of generalized attrition. A multidisciplinary approach and proper treatment planning with adequate manual dexterity are required for creating an improved aesthetic appearance and functional balance to maintain the health of the Stomatognathic System.
