Abstract

Identifying and recording appropriate occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) and centric relation positions during the treatment of edentulous patients is necessary for predictable and successful therapy. When alterations of existing conditions are indicated, it is beneficial for both the clinician and patient to evaluate the esthetics, phonetics, function, and comfort associated with planned changes in maxillomandibular relationships before fabricating new prostheses. A procedure used to modify existing unacceptable maxillomandibular relationships and clinically monitor the effects of these alterations prior to fabrication of definitive complete dentures is presented. Acceptance of the new OVD position by both the patient and dentist following an initial diagnostic phase is important to predictable and successful treatment.
