Abstract

The severe wear of anterior teeth facilitates the loss of anterior guidance, which in turn protects posterior teeth from wearing. The loss of the normal occlusal plane and the reduction of vertical dimension occur due to the collapse of posterior teeth. Full mouth rehabilitation allows us to restore severely attritted teeth due to decreased vertical dimension.
