The Introduction defines hypodontia, oligodontia and anodontia, citing their frequency and giving a description of accompanying occurrences. The need for an interdisciplinary approach to the solution of these anomalies is stressed. This is followed by a case presentation of a patient with oligodontia, in whom, apart from the wisdom teeth, 8 permanent teeth were missing. A method of orthodontic treatment is described and final prosthetic rehabilitation. The patient was treated with mobile and fixed orthodontic appliances in order to achieve optimal placement of the teeth and intermaxillary relations, as a prerequisite for successful prosthetic rehabilitation. The prosthetic construction was performed with ceramic bridges in both jaws, which provided a satisfactory functional and aesthetic result. In conclusion the theoretical possibilities for orthodontic treatment and alternative prosthetic solutions in diagnoses in which there is a reduction in the number of teeth, are discussed.
