Webinar - Altering the Vertical Dimension

In this webinar, you will revisit the important parameters that determine the vertical dimension of occlusion for each individual patient.

You will learn how to identify which patients you must consider opening the VDO to have control of the occlusion. We will also discuss which cases you must be very careful about altering the vertical dimension, as well as which cases are too high-risk to open VDO.

Special emphasis will be placed on:

  • Important concepts regarding implant cases
  • The options to open VDO using composite resin
  • How to phase complex cases when cost is an issue
