Complete mouth rehabilitation allows the dentist to solve multiple problems by controlling the restoration of many teeth. Guidelines and objective criteria for each area to be treated are essential when planning an extensive case. Esthetics, phonetics, and anterior guidance are affected by the height and inclination of the mandibular incisors. Placement of the mandibular incisal plane is important, as the mandibular anterior teeth may be more visible than the maxillary anterior teeth during speaking or when at rest. Provisional restorations can be adjusted and recorded so that the final restorations are predictably successful. This case illustrates the use of a trial incisal edge and digital videography of the provisional restoration to facilitate correct placement of the mandibular incisal plane.

Work that is a report of a pre-planned, usually controlled, clinical study of the safety and efficacy of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques after phase II trials. A large enough group of patients is studied and closely monitored by physicians for adverse response to long-term exposure, over a period of about three years in either the United States or a foreign country.
A prosthesis or restoration placed for a limited period, from several days to several months, which is designed to seal the tooth and maintain its position until a permanent restoration (DENTAL RESTORATION, PERMANENT) will replace it. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)
Work that is the report of a pre-planned clinical study of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques in humans selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. While most clinical trials concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans. Specific headings for specific types and phases of clinical trials are also available.
