Loss of Vertical Dimension

The Vertical Dimension is the relation of space between the biting surfaces. A collapsed bite can lead to changes in facial proportions, affect TMJ functions and also can affect surrounding teeth in the dentition. There are two situations where someone may lose the vertical dimension of occlusion. One of these, the patient is Bruxism and has worn down his or her teeth so much that the biting surfaces are reduced, leading to a collapsed bite. The second of these situations would be a patient without teeth has lost the vertical dimension of his or her bite.

Failed Restorations

When a restoration such as a filling, crown, bridge, or veneer has been filtrated (meaning that it is no longer sealed properly), broken off or fractured, this would be considered a failed restoration. When this happens we must remove the failed restoration, evaluate the condition of the tooth and then take the steps necessary to construct a new functional restoration.
