Abstract

'Crossed occlusion' is the condition in which occlusal intercuspation is lost when several teeth on upper and lower jaw remain. This report describes a clinical case in which a patient had two upper-left posterior teeth and two lower-right posterior teeth; typically known as left-right crossed occlusion. Considering the patient's general condition and financial situation, the treatment plan included placement of two implants on each jaw against the remaining teeth using surgical guide. To find out the ideal position of implants, digital diagnostic wax-up was preceded by superimposing the cast and cone beam computed tomography image, which was aided with radiographic stents. The consequent surveyed implant bridge provided stable vertical stop for fabrication of the implant assisted removable partial dentures. The patient was satisfied with the functionality and esthetics of definitive prosthesis.
