Abstract

Excessive occlusal wear of dentition can result in pulpal injury, occlusal disharmony, impaired function and esthetic deformity. Wear of teeth can be in the form of attrition, abrasion, erosion, abfraction etc. Severe loss of anterior teeth results in loss of anterior guidance this compromise’s the posterior teeth during excursive movement. Such excessive wear and abnormalities of teeth often impairs patients basic activities like mastication, speech and esthetics affecting patients life style. Therefore reconstruction of the mutilated dentition is necessary. Full mouth rehabilitation combines esthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health and function of the patient. This clinical case report describes the use of hobo twin-stage procedure for rehabilitation of a patient with severe tooth wear and reduced vertical dimension of occlusion.
