Abstract

The congenital absence of teeth, total anodontia, may involve both the primary and permanent dentitions. This paper updates the dental history of a twenty-eight-year-old Greek-American woman first reported in 1977 by Herman and Moss, when she was fourteen. Five complete sets of dentures had been made for her in thirteen years. Treatment was more complex due to an underdeveloped maxilla and a prognathic mandible.
