Abstract


Case presentation: A 33-year-old female reported with multiple missing teeth, inability to masticate and serious esthetic issues. After history, general, clinical and radiological evaluation, an onlay maxillary and mandibular denture was considered as the most feasible treatment at that point of time. Conventional clinical and laboratory protocols were followed for the fabrication of the onlay dentures. The patient was recalled for follow-ups for 3months after the denture insertion and reported with a satisfactory outcome.

Discussion: The dental implants and supplementary augmentation techniques have created a new option for treatment of patients with oligodontia. But in some instances, the conventional methods of prosthetic rehabilitation e.g. Onlay dentures. Complete Dentures etc. are advised.

Conclusions: Removable prosthodontics is an interim restoration for successful rehabilitation of patients at young age with added advantages of greater self-esteem, better social acceptance, re-establishment of the masticatory function and aesthetics when other advanced treatment modalities are not feasible.
