Patients with cerebral palsy fall frequently, which causes fractures or loss of their anterior teeth. Furthermore, these patients usually have many other problems such as: difficulty of dental treatment, poor oral hygiene, involuntary jaw movement and bad oral habits. This paper describes a case of anterior teeth restoration in a cerebral palsied patient with severe abormal jaw movement. A temporary plastic and metal appliance was worn by the patient for several months. The final prosthetic appliance was fabricated by duplicating the temporary one. By duplicating the patients's self-molded margin and facet into metal, the final partial denture functioned well, despite the severe abnormal jaw movement.
