Oligodontia may compromise the harmonious development of the masticatory system. The quantity and quality of agenesis determines the type of approach and the complexity of rehabilitative therapy. We present a case of a patient affected by oligodontia and maxillo-mandibular skeletal alterations, corrected by orthodontic and orthognatic surgical treatment, assisted by prosthetic-presurgical rehabilitation of the lower arch. After surgery the occlusion was finally restored by a definitive prosthesis modeled on the presurgical one and supported by the same residual dental elements. Photographic and cephalometric analysis have shown the stability of the results at 20 years follow-up. The case presented shows that the final prosthesis on the residual teeth in patients affected by oligodontia may represent a possible alternative to implanto-prosthetic rehabilitation, presenting lower cost and requiring less time for definitive occlusal rehabilitation.
