Methods of determining vertical dimension (5):

By Dr. Vishaal Bhat on Sunday 6 July 2008 with 0 comments



1. Boos: Bimeter (an oral meter that measures pressure)

2. Silverman: closest speaking space- looked at bicuspid area

3. Pound: phonetics and esthetics

4. Lytle: neuromuscular perception

5. Pleasure: pleasure points (tip of nose and chin)

VDO = VDR – ID

-occlusal plane must be parallel to the ala-tragus line and interpupillary line

-Beyron’s point: the arbitrary terminal hinge axis: measured out from the posterior margin of the tragus of the ear – 13mm on a line between the tragus of the ear and the outer canthus of the eye.

-lateral interocclusal records: Hanau’s formula – L = H/8 + 12

-H is the horizontal condylar inclination established by the protrusive record

-L is the lateral condylar inclination
