Functional Aesthetic Rehabilitation of a Patient with Dental Biocorrosion: A Case Report
Cardenas-Sallhue, Henrry / Delgadillo-Avila, Juana / Alvarado-Menacho, Sergio
The main goal of this report was to solve a clinical case of a 73-year-old man with diabetes, partial edentulism and a pathological occlusion with biocorrosion using conservative and adhesive techniques. A complete rehabilitative treatment was performed, increasing the vertical dimension of occlusion using indirect restorations with composite resins on teeth and resin crowns on implants and returning function using mutually protected occlusion. A 6-month posttreatment clinical and radiographic follow-up was performed.
