Objective: To arrest the advancement of periodontitis. Patient: A 17- year-old boy diagnosed with Pierre-Robin sequence at birth exhibited localized juvenile periodontitis. Severe bone loss and mobile teeth were localized in the incisors and molars, which were irregularly positioned, possibly associated with a residual scar from palatoplasty for a soft palate cleft at an early age. Conclusion: Combined orthodontic-periodontic- prosthodontic treatment arrested the advancement of the periodontitis and established a stable occlusion.
