An improvised approach for regaining mouth opening and managing tooth wear in oral sub-mucous fibrosis
This case report demonstrates the full mouth prosthetic rehabilitation of a patient with generalised compensated tooth wear and oral sub-mucous fibrosis (OSMF). A 50-year-old female with advanced tooth wear and concomitant OSMF presented to the clinic. She was managed in a sequential manner using an occlusal splint, extractions of hopeless teeth, root canal treatment of strategically important teeth, surgical crown lengthening of abutment teeth, and dental implants to replace missing dentition, followed by crown and bridgework to rehabilitate the dentition. All procedures were done on the principles of re-organised occlusal intervention. The outcome was a functional dentition with an aesthetic smile and a satisfied patient. The regaining of mouth opening among OSMF subjects is a challenge.
