Cleidocranial dysplasia is a developmental anomaly of the skeleton and the teeth which is inherited or transmitted as dominant trait. It presents with a wide range of features, characterized by clavicular aplasia or hypoplasia, short stature, supernumerary teeth, skeletal abnormalities like skeletal defects of several bones, such as late closure of the fontanels, presence of open skull sutures and multiple wormian bones. Clinical significance of this condition to dentistry is due to the involvement of the facial bones, altered eruption patterns and multiple supernumerary teeth. The goal of prosthetic rehabilitation in such cases is to enhance functional ability and esthetics. Here reporting case of 25-year-old Indian male, who presented with the typical features cleidocranial dysplasia. The prosthetic rehabilitation was done with acrylic overlay dentures fabricated with innovative flasking method in which we packed two different heat cure acrylics together and of course enhanced function and esthetics by restoring the vertical dimension.
