This article describes the interdisciplinary approach for prosthodontic rehabilitation of a four-and-a-half-year-old child reported with mutilated dentition due to S-ECC. The tooth-supported maxillary over-denture was fabricated besides pulpectomies, stainless steel crowns, mandibular incisor celluloid strip crowns, and comprehensive preventive care. The three months followup showed significant improvement in oral function and excellent acclimatization of the child to the prosthesis; however, it needed re-fabrication at 12 months. The real smile on the child’s face in this report will encourage the clinicians to seek pediatric prosthodontics despite the need for frequent revisions required to accommodate the growth and development of jaws.
