Achalasia Cardia is an idiopathic esophageal motor disorder distinguished by the loss of esophageal peristalsis and insufficient relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter. The oral manifestation of the disease is dental erosion caused by the regurgitation of the gastric contents and vomiting. A female patient aged 14 years reported to the Department of Prosthodontics, Lenora Institute of Dental Sciences, with complaints concerning aesthetics and pain in relation to several teeth. Patient gave history of loss of tooth structure over the past few years with associated sensitivity and pain in several teeth. Patient also gave history of inability to consume sufficient amount of food owing to the repeated vomiting. This paper aims to present a rare case report of achalasia cardia by rehabiliting the remaining teeth with overlay denture.
