ABSTRACT

The decrease of the vertical dimension in patients with complete dentures often is followed by functional and aesthetic problems. This problem is bigger in patients which dentures are much older (some times more than 10 years) but it could also happen in patients with mush newer dentures (less than 5 years).The aim of this report is to present the possibility to correct the decreased vertical dimension in patients with complete dentures without making new one. A 72 years old completely edentulous patient was admitted at the UDCC - Department for removable dentures in Skopje. The patient’s complete dentures were made six years ago and he complains of „dentures meltdown“. The patient does not accept to make new ones. Method of choice is increasing the vertical dimension during the indirect rebasing of the lower complete denture. With this procedure the correction of the vertical dimension was successful as well as the improvement of the aesthetic and the function of the stomatognatic system.
