Reproducibility of the vertical dimension of occlusion with an improved measuring gauge

, : Reproducibility of the vertical dimension of occlusion with an improved measuring gauge. Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry 60(1): 58-61

An improved gauge using an eyeglass frame, the TOM gauge, was devised. The reproducibility of the record of vertical dimension with this gauge was evaluated through repeated measurements on subjects having a definite centric stop with the natural dentition. Because of the stabilization provided by the frame and the reference point on the apex nasi, the TOM gauge showed excellent reproducibility of the record compared with the conventional gauges. The TOM gauge can be expected to significantly reduce the risk of errors in measuring the vertical dimension of occlusion especially in complete denture fabrication.
