Esthetics and function: formulas for a successful oral rehabilitation in the digital era

When performing an occlusal rehabilitation, the development of an effective anterior guidance is a key element in the functional success of the treatment, but often this implies a change in the length of the anterior teeth. The following are some of the topics to be discussed: how do changes in overbite and overjet influence the effectiveness of anterior guidance? Can the VDO be varied? When should MI be recorded and when CR? Are the digital jaw movement recording devices changing our paradigms? Which are the implications of intraoral scanning as far as prosthetic material selection? The illustration of several clinical cases with extensive rehabilitations and interdisciplinary treatments will highlight the thought processes and methods applied.
