Abstract

Oligodontia only affects 0.1%-1.2% of the population and is associated with cleft lip or the palate and other genetic syndromes. Oligodontia also occurs on its own, and its exact etiology remains unknown. The objective of this study is to establish masticatory and esthetic functions. A 20-year-old female came to the Dental Teaching Hospital, University of Indonesia, with a complaint of multiple decayed teeth. The patient was physically and mentally healthy. An intraoral examination revealed the presence of deciduous teeth #55, #53, #64, #65, #71, #73, and #81-#85 and permanent teeth #16, #12, #21, #22, #26, #37, #32, #46, and #47. A panoramic radiograph showed the absence of teeth #18, #17, #13-#15, #11, #23-#25, #27, #28, #38, #33-#36, #31, #41-#45, and #48. The condition of each dentition was assessed. The patient was diagnosed with nonsyndromic oligodontia. Prosthodontic rehabilitation was delivered to restore masticatory and esthetic functions using a maxillary telescopic prosthesis and a removable mandibular partial denture. Syndromic oligodontia rehabilitation should be carefully considered and requires a multidisciplinary approach. Preserving the remaining deciduous dentition and fabricating a telescopic prosthesis and removable denture could improve masticatory and esthetic functions.
