A girl with congenital hemifacial hypertrophy had been observed and treated
by a multidisciplinary team for craniofacial disorders in an academic medical
centre since birth. At the age of 8 she was treated on account of considerable
facial asymmetry and multiple intraoral problems. The two-step surgery
involved reduction of the maxilla and the zygoma, reduction of soft tissues,
removal of the teeth on the affected side, correction of the alveolar ridges of
the maxilla and the mandible and placement of oral implants. After a healing
period of 4 months fixed partial dentures were constructed on the implants.
