Crouzon syndrome causes anodontia and hypodontia intraorally, in addition to other symptoms. Partial or total anodontia results in loss of function such as chewing, and affects aesthetics. Prosthodontic rehabilitation can be accomplished with fixed, overdenture, complete, or implant-retained prostheses. For rehabilitation, it is crucial to know the age, number and condition of the present teeth, and the state of growth of the patient. A 21-year-old female patient, who visited our institution, was treated by a multi-disciplinary team of surgeons, endodontist, and prosthodontists. Combined denture (combined fixed-removable tooth replacement) was considered for correcting the angulation and cross bite of maxillary remaining teeth.
