Platform switching in the treatment of Cleidocranial Dysplasia: a case report
AbstractBackground Cleidocranial dysplasia is a very rare occurrence, its incidence being 1: 1,000,000. Case report This report describes the treatment of a 31-yearold woman with cleidocranial dysplasia treated with expanded platform implants. All mandibular and maxillary teeth were extracted and porcine collagenized bone was used to cover the bone defects in both arches. Six months later, four expanded platform implants were used to restore the mandibular arch, but one of them failed before the prosthesis was placed. In the maxillary arch a complete denture was relined and placed in the maxilla. The definitive mandibular restoration was delivered 3 months after surgery. Conclusion Since early diagnosis of cleidocranial dysplasia is essential for choosing the appropriate treatment approach, clinicians should be aware of its characteristic features.
