Abstract

Cerebral palsy is a common term for a group of disorders, characterized with features of a non-progressive brain injury or lesion acquired during early childhood.

A case of a 58 years old, female patient with medical history of cerebral palsy and hypertension is reported.

After extraction of all hopeless teeth, the remaining teeth on both jaws underwent periodontal and endodontic treatment because they were used as ball attachments for tooth-supported conventional complete overdentures.

The advantages of this treatment plan are maintaining the integrity of the residual ridges, improved stability and retention of the dentures due to usage of compromised residual dentition.

This provides the patient easier and shorter adaptation period as well as better mastication, speech and esthetics.

Even the abutment teeth are lost due to insufficient oral hygiene and periodontal disease the overdentures could be relined and used as conventional complete dentures.
