Abstract

The distance between the natural teeth and the implants is an important factor in preserving the periodontal tissues and esthetics. And abnormal positional displacement and tilting of the teeth during restorative procedure may require intentional root canal treatment and may affect masticatory function. This report is to present a successful full mouth rehabilitation of a patient with uneven dentition and collapsed occlusion using orthodontic and implant treatment. The patient had no symptoms or discomfort of temporomandibular joint disorder such as pain or sound. The orthodontic treatment was continued until implant provisional prosthesis delivery. And the vertical height of occlusion was elevated 2mm on anterior basis for anterior teeth protection and esthetics. After the orthodontic treatment, the implant abutments and natural teeth were finally restored with porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns and bridges. Satisfactory function and esthetic outcomes are observed after 6months of follow up.
