Achieving success with tissue-supported complete dentures hinges upon an understanding and precise recording of critical parameters, including the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO), centric relation (CR), and tooth positions. This course addresses four common obstacles encountered in this process and equips participants with strategies to overcome them effectively.

Obstacles Covered:
-Understanding and determining an acceptable VDO.
-Understanding and precisely locating CR.
-Accurately recording of VDO and CR.
-Determining and recording tooth positions of the maxillary anterior teeth.

Learning Objectives:
-Discuss how to determine an acceptable vertical dimension of occlusion and locate centric relation for edentulous restorations and why this is critically important.
-Accurately record vertical dimension of occlusion and centric relation for edentulous restorations using the simplified and accurate gothic arch tracer.
-Demonstrate how to clinically refine the contours of the maxillary esthetic wax rim for teeth positions.
