Esthetic and functional restoration of the severely worn dentition represents a significant clinical challenge to the dentist. Diagnosis is most important in treatment planning. A systematic, phase wise approach is of utmost importance in full-mouth rehabilitation. Over time, various concepts and philosophies to attain reconstruction and rehabilitation of the entire dentition have been proposed. This article focuses on the phase-by-phase treatment of two patients with worn dentition by the Hobo Twin-stage procedure.
