The process of rehabilitation of the bite put simply is to return adequate posterior support bilaterally at a bite thickness or height that reflects putting the front teeth into their most aesthetic positions after dental restoration.

If the teeth and gums are in such condition that they can be saved, then more complicated procedures are possible and may involve other dental specialties such as Orthodontics and Endodontics prior to final restoration or rehabilitation of the teeth.

Patients can be typically referred for a more global problem of wear, tear or erosional fracture involving a loss of height of the teeth/bite effecting jaw function and aesthetics of the teeth. Where the teeth require extraction the prosthetic rehabilitation takes the form of teeth replacement with dentures or bridge work.

Commonly asked questions:

  • My teeth are all worn down how do I fix it?
    Typically study models are taken of the teeth and a diagnostic wax up is performed to determine how much to structure is missing and what is required to restore aesthetic function.
    It is often the case that the support of the rear teeth is too low and needs building up with direct fillings or crowns to create space for aesthetic restoration of the front teeth. The choice for restoration can be with direct or indirect veneers and crowns.
