The presented case report describes a systematic treatment concept, the treatment sequence and the maintenance care of a sixty-seven-year old female patient suffering from generalized chronic periodontitis with advanced attachment loss. Due to a pretherapeutic risk assessment, several teeth were classified as "irrational to treat" or "doubtful". Therefore, a comprehensive reconstructive rehabilitation after active periodontal therapy was necessary. The restoration of a periodontally compromised dentition represents various difficulties. The patient wished to have fixed reconstructions. Depending upon anatomical conditions several different reconstructions were used: conventional bridges, partly using a resected molar root, a solely implant-retained bridge and a combined implant-tooth-retained bridge.
