Supraoccluding cobalt-chrome onlays in the management of amelo genesis imperfecta in children: A 2-year case report
Hunter / Stone
Children suffering from the inherited dental anomaly amelogenesis imperfecta frequently present with sensitive, discolored teeth and decreased lower facial height. The aim of treatment is to reduce sensitivity while maintaining the maximum amount of hard tissue possible until the patient reaches an age at which advanced restorative techniques can be used to rehabilitate the dentition. A case is presented in which amelogenesis imperfecta in the mixed dentition was managed by the placement of adhesive cast restorations. These restorations have been in place for 2 years.
