Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome (PLS) is a rare disorder that leads to symptoms including the early progressive loss of deciduous and permanent teeth. Prosthodontic management of children and adolescents affected by PLS sometimes requires an immediate complete denture. Tooth mobility presents a challenge to the dentist, especially during impression-making. This clinical report describes the management of a 14-year-old boy with PLS by using an intraoral scanner to prevent conventional impressions and a fully digital workflow for the design and fabrication of immediate complete dentures.
