Oligodontia. Surgical treatment and implant rehabilitation. A case report

Pasetti P., Crachi V.


PDF


Oligodontia is the partial loss of deciduous and permanent teeth and is rather commonly associated with a wide range of malformations in many syndromes. The treatment plan for these patients is based on a multidisciplinary ap-proach involving maxillo-facial surgery and several branches of dentistry. The case of a young man who was diagnosed with oligodontia at the age of 11 is reported. The patient was treated with Le Fort 1 maxillary osteotomy, sagittal palatal osteotomy, mandibular widening by autogenous bone grafting, endosseus titanium implant placement and dental rehabilitation by fixed bridges.
