Partial anodontia is considered as one of the most crucial developmental anomalies in the dentofacial region. In the permanent dentition, the prevalence rate of true partial exodontia is 3.5%–6.5%. The clinical situation in relation to this abnormality is very distressing for the patient; at the same time, it is a strenuous challenge for the clinician to bring it to the normal function and esthetics. This case report discusses the prosthodontic rehabilitation of a young girl with the partial anodontia that was treated with the tooth-supported over-denture using Ceka Preci precision attachments. The ultimate aim was to rehabilitate her prosthodontically to uplift her mental and esthetic status.
