Combination syndrome commonly occurs in patients with a completely edentulous maxilla opposed by a bilateral distal-extension removable partial denture. is syndrome poses a considerable challenge to dentists. e symptoms of the syndrome consist of anterior maxillary bone loss, mandibular bone loss, tuberosity overgrowth, and alveolar ridge canting. All of these eects render prosthetic treatment more difficult, and although it is preferable to use dental implants for functional support, complex cases still require conventional prosthetic treatments for medical or nancial reasons. This clinical report presents the prosthodontic management of a patient exhibiting combination syndrome along with a discussion of relevant literature.
