The main objective of this study was to determine the correlation between the inner canthal distance (ICD) and interalar width(More)
The aim of this investigation was to establish precise indicators of the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) which could be used as objective parameters in prosthodontic treatment providing exact control of the reconstructed vertical dimension of occlusion, early detection of errors and correction of the vertical dimension of occlusion during complete(More)
INTRODUCTION Optimal reconstruction of vertical dimension of occlusion is crucial for functional and physiognomic rehabilitation of edentulous patients. This article is aimed at presenting attitudes and studies on application of cephalometric analysis in obtaining optimal vertical dimension of occlusion. The review of literature presents the studies which(More)
The aim of the study was to examine changes in the position of the abutment teeth (AT), size of undercuts for a denture clasp, as well as an existence of an adequate preparation of abutment teeth. A total of 156 casts of partially edentulous jaws, with 460 AT, were analyzed. The size of undercuts, a degree of abutment rotation, inclination and migration(More)
