Vertical Problems – Diagnosis and Treatment

Updated: Mar 22, 2023

As dentists, we see patients with supra-eruption of teeth, deep overbites, extreme occlusal wear, and/or a combination of these vertical problems. As a result, these patients are often referred to the orthodontist with the request to “open the vertical”. How should the interdisciplinary team diagnose a vertical problem and develop the appropriate treatment plan to correct that vertical problem? This presentation will use many clinical examples to provide a systematic approach for diagnosing and treating patients with vertical malrelationships.


- Learning Objectives:

  • Diagnose and treatment plan specific vertical dimension problems

  • Identify when and how orthodontics can “open the vertical”
