Functional and esthetic rehabilitation of mutilated dentition associated with amelogenesis imperfecta.

Abstract

This clinical case report describes the oral rehabilitation of an adult female patient diagnosed with hypoplastic amelogenesis imperfecta with inadequate, deteriorated restorations of anterior teeth, inadequate clinical crown heights of posterior teeth due to severe attrition of hypoplastic enamel. Treatment included extraction of teeth with poor prognosis, root canal treatment and crown lengthening of severely worn out teeth & full coverage porcelain-fused-to metal fixed restoration of entire dentition. The main objectives of the selected treatment were to enhance the esthetics, restore masticatory function and eliminate the teeth sensitivity. These treatment objectives were successfully met by sequential fixed prosthodontics treatment using Pankey-Mann-Schuyler philosophy of complete occlusal rehabilitation. Treatment not only restored function and esthetic, but also showed a positive psychological impact and thereby improved perceived quality of life.
