Generalised aggressive periodontitis is a disease that manifests in young patients and causes progressive damage to the periodontium. This report describes the treatment plan of a young patient aged 34 years with generalised aggressive periodontitis. Two implants in each jaw were placed two months after the extraction of all the teeth. After a healing period, an implant-retained prosthesis was fabricated and installed. The patient showed a high level of satisfaction with the provided treatment. Implant-retained denture is an adequate and relatively cheap treatment option for the rehabilitation of edentulous young adults with generalised aggressive periodontitis.
