This lecture outlines a digital approach for finishing full mouth rehabilitation cases focusing on both esthetics and function.
In other lectures we’ve discussed and learned how digital tools can help us set up cases appropriately to manage some of the esthetic and functional concerns that these cases present. Digital tools and techniques help us through this process and one that is often left out is ensuring that the final occlusion of the patient is balanced for both force and time. All too often, after a complex case, static articulating paper marks aren’t giving us the data we need to ensure functional balance. We plan, scan, analyze and set up the case as perfect as can be but upon delivery rely on a static medium to provide us with information. Although these traditional analog methods provide us with contact location of the occlusion we do not see the full functional picture of what is happening over time.
