Planning and executing the restorative rehabilitation of a severely worn dentition is probably one of the most intellectually and technically demanding tasks faced by the restorative dentist. This article describes the rehabilitation of a 55-year-old male patient with severe loss of tooth structure. The maxillary arch was restored using fixed restorations and the mandibular arch using the integration of fixed and removable prosthodontics. The integration of fixed and removable prosthodontics in a partially dentate patient poses a challenge as well as an opportunity for the use of a partial overdenture.
