A 10-year-old boy with oligodontia came to the dental practice with the main complaint about facial appearance. He feels insecure about making friends in school, since his friends always ask about how did his teeth become so weird. The boy was diagnosed with nonsyndromic oligodontia, had several deciduous and permanent teeth. To help with the alignment of the tooth, the boy was referred to an orthodontist and used braces for a year. After that, a denture was made to raise the vertical height of the jaw and finalized with the reshaping of the incisive teeth with direct composite. The patient was happy with the denture, and we continue to check every six months to adjust the denture.
