An interdisciplinary, periodontic-surgicalrestorative- prosthodontic-orthodontic approach with strict plaque control during treatment was carried out.

Results: Clinical examination revealeda well-functioning dentition, natural inappearance and in a harmonious occlusion and periodontalstate of health.The treatment outcomes, includingthe periodontal condition and the orthodontic treatment, were stable at the age of 60 years.
