The dental problems associated with osteogenesis imperfecta range from discoloration of teeth to malocclusion. A case has been described where an osteogenesis imperfecta patient had chronic gastric problems because of difficulty in chewing and eating as he had a skeletal Class III malocclusion with micrognathia of the maxilla and a reverse overjet. He was unable to chew his food while eating since there was no contact between his upper and lower teeth when he closed his mouth. The challenge was to bring the upper and lower teeth into occlusion. This was done with an overdenture over his teeth in the upper arch. Follow-up was done for 2 years, and the patient had reported to be relieved of his constant gastric problems from which he had been suffering for the past 20 years.
