Multidisciplinary Esthetic Rehabilitation of Oligodontia: a Case Report
Teo, Marlene / Chang, Willy S. W. / Cheau, Hwang Yee
Oligodontia is a rare congenital disorder defined as the absence of six or more permanent teeth. For optimum masticatory function, speech and esthetics, oligodontia cases are best handled by a multidisciplinary team. It is not enough just to place dental implants to replace the missing teeth. Dental implants do not last long term if there is untreated traumatic malocclusion; the final dental implants may also be unesthetic with poor treatment planning. This case report describes the treatment sequence by a team in Singapore, comprising an orthodontist, periodontist, and prosthodontist. Therapy consisted of detailed treatment planning, followed by an orthodontic phase, a surgical phase and a prosthetic phase. With good interdisciplinary cooperation, we have given this patient good function and a new smile.
