In case of missing of permanent teeth by trauma or innate defect, the decision of treatment modalities and application timing have an important effect on the prognosis of oral rehabilitation. In this case report, interdisciplinary approach between the orthodontic and prosthodontic treatment, the way to re-establish the collapsed occlusal vertical dimension, and implant prosthetic considerations will be discussed. Proper diagnosis on teeth and craniofacial skeleton was made prior to treatment and provisional restorations were used in regard of growth patterns of the patient. Finally, the edentulous areas were restored with fixed implant prostheses. Diagnosis, treatment rationale and prognosis will be discussed thoroughly.
