ABSTRACT
With increased awareness about dental esthetics, multidisciplinary periodontal therapy has begun to gain momentum. Management of severely attrited teeth is a challenging situation and is dealt with a multidisciplinary approach. In cases of severe tooth wear, the crown height is drastically reduced, in some cases up to the gingival level. This might require a contribution from the disciplines of endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics and prosthodontics for predictable results. Herein we describe the management of one such case.

Figure 0011: Night guard in place

Mentions: After refining the occlusion, the crowns were glazed and cemented with glass ionomer cement (3M ESPE -Easy mix). After cementation, alginate impressions of upper and lower arch were made, and casts obtained were used for the fabrication of night guard. Both upper and lower night guards were made and dispensed to the patient with instruction to wear them every night, so as to break the habit of grinding and at the same time protecting the crowns from fracture [Figures 13 and 14].
