In this case report, transitional bonding with the aid of a Kois deprogrammer was used to restore a patient’s worn dentition. Finding the centric relation might sometimes seem hard, but with appropriate devices, such as the Kois Deprogrammer it’ll become just obvious. The centric. The Kois Deprogrammer is a palatal-‐coverage maxillary acrylic device with a flat plane lingual to the anterior teeth. It separates the dental arches and provides.

The Kois Deprogrammer is a removable, plastic appliance that covers the hard palate and creates a single point of contact between the lower drprogrammer incisor and the anterior bite plane.

In the resting position, there was no display of maxillary teeth Figure 3.

Then, the patient should lie back in the chair, and be asked to occlude on the appliance through the articulating paper and slide forward and back.

It can be used as a diagnostic tool to determine if the mandible needs to move in the anterior or posterior direction to reach CR from the maximal intercuspal position MIP.

These variables were discussed, and it was decided to phase the treatment to allow a transition period to enable the patient to be comfortable with the esthetics as well as the new occlusal relationship.

This is of utmost importance for preventing TMJ lesions related to occlusion. The same protocol was used to build the premolars and first molars. The provisional restorations were used to evaluate tooth form and contour in the smile deprograkmer the vertical dimension and new incisal edge position had already been established with the transitional bonding.

Given that the laboratory technician already had the correct functional and esthetic parameters, there was an opportunity to create a more ideal cusp-to-fossa relationship by refining the mandibular cusp tips and adding to the opposing teeth. For some patients, it may be necessary to wear the deprogrammer up to 24 hours per day except when eating for old muscle memory to be erased and become completely deprogrammed. The desired incisal edge position would, in effect, determine the degree to which the vertical dimension should be increased.


In this case, the Kois deprogrammer made it possible for the practitioner to find, establish, maintain, and verify an acceptable vertical dimension in centric relation throughout the process. At that point, the vertical dimension was established, the deprogrammer was removed, and the posterior contact points were refined with Trollfoil articulating paper Deprpgrammer, www.
