Cherubism is an early childhood disease that primarily involves the mandible and consists of painless mandibular enlargement with or without maxillary involvement and progresses rapidly over the course of several years. This clinical report describes the fabrication of maxillary fixed partial dentures and a mandibular overdenture for a 21-year-old man with cherubism. © 2006 The Editorial Council of The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.
