Crouzon syndrome is a rare genetic disorder, which can be defined as a variation of craniofacial dysostosis caused by the premature obliteration and ossification of two or more sutures. The growth pattern results in pseudoprognathism and malocclusions including an overcrowded or a widely spaced dentition. Specifically maxillary arch is narrow, high, and V-shaped. Cleft palate and bifid uvula are other possible features in the oral cavity. This report describes a non-surgical treatment model to overcome the remaining significant Class III intermaxillary relation and excessive tooth loss to recover function and aesthetics for a 25-year-old Crouzon patient.
