Occlusal Rehabilitation in a Patient with Oligodontia and Microdontia using Implants and Full-Ceramic Restorations: A Clinical Report.
GE, Yan Jun / YEH, I-Ting / WONG, Sing-Wai / HAN, Dong / FENG, Hai Lan
Oligodontia is the agenesis of six or more permanent teeth, excluding the third molars. Multidisciplinary dental treatments should be performed sequentially due to the restoration requirements for good oral function, aesthetics and self-confidence of patients. In this study, we report a case using dental implants and full-ceramic prostheses to restore the absent and malformed teeth in a patient with agenesis of 18 permanent teeth and with some primary teeth retained. The dental sequential treatments began when she was 16 years old, and she wore removable partial dentures for 4 years with unsatisfying restoration outcome. When she became an adult, dental implants and full-ceramic prostheses were used to restore the absent and malformed teeth. Finally, the patient was very satisfied with the functional and aesthetic outcomes of the prosthetic treatment.
