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
