An instrument called the Broadrick flag has been used to assist in the reproduction of tooth morphology that is commensurate with the curve of Spee. This case report demonstrates the making and use of a custom-made Broadrick occlusal plane analyzer (BOPA) on a semiadjustable articulator to determine the correct orientation of the occlusal plane in a full mouth rehabilitation (FMR).

On clinical examination, it was found that teeth present were 11, 14, 21, while the mandibular arch had all the teeth except 31, 32, 41, 42, 45 after complete examination, case was planned for full mouth rehabilitation using custom made BOPA.
Conclusion: FMR was an the important part in treatment protocol of this case. A custom-made occlusal plane analyzer was fabricated and used for re-establishing the decimated occlusal plane in harmony with the stomatognathic system.
