A b s t r a c t

Patients with cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) commonly present with significant dental
problems, such as retention of multiple deciduous teeth, impaction or delay in eruption
of permanent teeth and, often, the presence of supernumerary teeth. Several approaches
have been described for the management of such patients. We report 2 cases illustrating
the shift in the management paradigm from edentulation and prosthetic replacement
to orthodontically assisted forced eruption and fixed appliance orthodontic treatment
combined with orthognathic surgery.
