Combined Orthodontic-Prosthetic Treatment in Patients with Bruxism

Session

Medical, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Description

Orthodontic treatment in some cases alleviates or is a necessity for successful prosthetic treatment. The aim of the study is to present orthodontic-prosthetic treatment in third degree bruxism patients and the relationship between orthodontics and prosthetics. The 47-year-old patient is treated with a fixed appliance in the lower jaw (aesthetic braces) and teeth splint (Erkodur 2 mm) in the upper jaw. The reverse occlusion in the frontal region is corrected with the intrusion and the retrusion of the frontal teeth of the lower jaw. After orthodontic treatment, frontal teeth of the lower jaw 33 to 43 are fixed with Reteiner then the prosthetic compensation of the missing teeth in the both jaws are done with Zirconia crowns and bridges with CAD-CAM technique. Aesthetics and function after orthodontic-prosthetic treatment of bruxism has been very satisfying. The reverse occlusion is corrected and teeth abraded surfaces from bruxism were compensated. At the end of the treatment, occlusion and ideal articulation is achieved and the patient has no longer expressed bruxism. Based on patient examination, model analysis, OPG and photos before and after treatment, we can conclude that the treatment has been very successful. In the presented case, occlusal disorder and missing teeth could have been the cause of bruxism. Achieved success is stable even 9 years after treatment.

Orthodontic treatment in some cases alleviates or is a necessity for successful prosthetic treatment.
