Paul Worskett describes the case of a patient who chose CHROME guided surgery to restore their form and function. Upon examination, his soft tissues – both intra- and extraorally – were normal with no pathology.

In the upper arch, the lateral incisors were missing, there was caries in the premolars, and other maxillary teeth were heavily restored with poor aesthetics. As for the lower arch, all the lower anterior teeth had been restored with crowns and apicected. As a result, all the lower teeth had short roots and were mobile. The occlusion was edge-to-edge in terms of the centric jaw relationship (CJR) but was over-closed due to wear and tooth movement.
