Prosthetic management of a growing patient with Russell-Silver syndrome: a clinical report.

Kim K, Noh K, Paek J, Kwon KR, Pae A - J Adv Prosthodont (2015)

Bottom Line: Russell-Silver syndrome (RSS) is a congenital disease characterized by short stature due to growth hormone deficiency, physical asymmetry, inverted triangular face, micrognathia, prominent forehead, and hypodontia.This case report presents a prosthetic management of a 6-year-old patient with Russell-Silver syndrome treated with overdentures on the maxilla and the mandible using the remaining primary teeth.Subsequent and comprehensive dental management considering the growth and development of a young patient will be necessary.

Mentions: Fabrication of an overdenture retained by the natural primary teeth for the maxilla and an overdenture supported by the natural roots for the mandible were planned. Before fabrication of trial dentures was carried out, both maxillary primary central incisors, left primary lateral incisor, left primary canine, left primary first molar, and mandibular left primary lateral incisor with severe root caries were extracted (Fig. 3). Endodontic treatment followed by reduction of the crown portion was performed on the mandibular primary anterior teeth due to severe dental caries.
