Abstract

Aim

The aim of this report is to describe the restorative treatment of an 18-year-old patient diagnosed with autossomal recessive hypocalcified-hypoplastic amelogenesis imperfect (AI).

Background

Esthetic and functional rehabilitations in AI cases are challenging and should consider individual aspects, such as age, socioeconomic status, AI type, and intraoral condition.

Report

AI was diagnosed in an 18-year-old patient.

Summary

Considering the short length of crowns and roots, patient life expectancy, minimal invasiveness, amount of treatment time required, and lower costs, oral rehabilitation with overdentures provided an adequate functional and esthetic rehabilitation of the patient.

Clinical Significance

This report demonstrated overdentures to be a viable, relatively inexpensive, and noninvasive treatment choice of a patient with AI with concerns about treatment longevity, invasiveness, cost, esthetics, and long-term maintenance.
