A variety of treatment systems should be available for patients whose dentitions are seriously compromised so that they may select customized treatment modalities that satisfactorily restore occlusal function, consider systemic conditions, and lessen the surgical and financial burdens. These requirements become more demanding when clinicians are faced with advanced cases of rapidly progressive periodontitis. Therefore, it is critical to establish sophisticated multidisciplinary treatment modalities for the successful management of these compromised patients. Obviously, because of various limitations, implant therapy cannot be the only solution. This article reports on the successful long-term management of seriously compromised early-onset periodontitis by a combined periodontal-prosthetic treatment as an alternative to implant therapy.
