Ronald, this case probably had end to end wear due to parafunction, in which case composite build up was possible. how do treat cases where you see palatal wear mainly due to constricted pathway and putting composite would raise the bite.do u prefer dahl technique or full mouth rehab, splint?

Sorry it has taken me so long to answer, Jose...just saw your question as I was preparing for a lecture this week...And yes, the occlusion was handled by adjusting the lowers so there would be much less chance of a repeat fracture. And I do usually use the NTI appliance that I insist the patient wear at night. If the central incisors are all bonded or veneered I would then suggest a full night guard...soft on the inside and hard on the outside. Hope this answers your questions.

Nice and interesting Dr. Goldstein, i would like to ask you if the heavy oclusion was treated just by the selective reduction of lower incisors? And to know if is the same Oclusal guard and Bite guard? Thanks again for sharing your experience and knowledge

Successful Composite Resin Restorations - Part 1 of 2
Amalgam has been a durable successful dental restorative material; however this material has recently come under question due to its mercury content and disposal. Composite resin materials range from flowable to highly filled condensable type viscosities. There are many factors that influence the success of posterior composite resin restorations. This presentation will identify the factors that limit success (size, patient type, caries risk, shrinkage, curing light) and the materials that can be successfully used to restore posterior teeth. Beginning with flowable materials and their clinical application the presentation will discuss the open sandwich technique, use of flowable posterior restorations, sectional matrices and fluoride, calcium and phosphate releasing materials.
