Dental trauma is defined as a lesion of variable extension, intensity and gravity, of accidental or intentional origin, that may cause damages to the victims and bring prejudice to the quality of life of children and adolescents. The present case report refers to an adolescent that used prosthesis for 10 years, sculpted by herself in cattle ribs, because she was not adequately attended by the health staff. Dental treatment consisted of removal of the remaining roots and installation of an immediate prosthesis and 3 months later, a final prosthesis was made. This case alerts us to the serious emotional and social consequences resulting from traumatic injuries as well as the need for a professional approach sensitive to the situation of the patient.
