Oligodontia is the agenesis of six or more teeth, excluding the third molars. Genetic factors play an important role in oligodontia, which can occur as an isolated finding or as part of a syndrome. The characteristic dental symptoms are reduced number of teeth, reduction in tooth size, anomalies of tooth form, and delayed eruption. The absence of teeth in patients can cause aesthetic, functional, and psychological problems, particularly if the anterior region is involved. This case report describes the prosthetic treatment approach to a 19-year-old patient with nonsyndromic oligodontia characterized by the absence of 10 permanent teeth. The objectives of the treatment were the prosthetic restoration of the missing teeth and the provision of occlusion with full-mouth zirconia restorations.
