Restoration of a partially edentulous geriatric patient's mouth with complete esthetic and functional reconstruction may present numerous problems to the dental professional. The major concerns include centric relation, esthetics, phonetics and the patient's occlusal vertical dimension. Taking this into consideration this article tries to explain in detail the step-by-step procedure in treatment planning, surgical and prosthetic aspects taken to completely rehabilitate a 65-year-old partially edentulous patient using a combination of implants, fixed and removable prosthesis. The completed treatment was successful both subjectively and objectively, with the patient reporting good results even after 2-years post-treatment. Clinical Relevance to Interdisciplinary Dentistry

  2. A combinational approach by a team of prosthodontist, periodontist and an endodontist helped in attaining diagnosis and a desirable outcome.
  3. Restorative phase had an amalgamation of removable, fixed and implant-supported prosthesis.
