Abstract
BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW: A 9-year-old girl underwent comprehensive resection and rehabilitation of a central giant cell granuloma that required phased interprofessional collaborative care to optimize treatment decisions and outcome.
CASE DESCRIPTION: The interprofessional treatment team included an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, maxillofacial prosthodontist, dentist, orthodontist, and speech-language pathologist, and treatment spanned 9 years. Treatment included surgical resection of a central giant cell granuloma and obturation with a removable interim prosthesis. After adequate growth and development, the patient then underwent a surgical free-tissue transfer reconstruction by using virtual surgical planning, followed by dental implant placement and a transitional restoration, subsequent orthodontic therapy, and eventual definitive rehabilitation with an implant-retained fixed hybrid prosthesis.
CONCLUSIONS AND PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: The interprofessional phased and collaborative treatment facilitated an optimal functional and esthetic process in a young patient with transitional and definitive treatments that considered long-term quality-of-life implications.
