Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) represents a rare genetic disease characterized by disturbances in osseous structures, face dysmorphia, hypoplasia or aplasia of clavicles and numerous supranumerary teeth causing permanent teeth impaction. The study aimed at presenting a case of 12-year-old girl with CCD at the phase of active orthodontic treatment, involving successive extraction of multiple supranumerary teeth and repositioning of additional teeth using elastic traction. The patient was also subjected to a complex auditory examination which detected a hearing loss. Patients with CCD from their youngest years should be covered by a broad diagnosis and therapy, involving a comprehensive collaboration of multiple specialities.
