Abstract

A case of patient with missing tooth in the upper anterior region of the jaw reported to our institution with generalized spacing. The use of conventional FPD may result in too wide anterior teeth leading to poor esthetics. Hence modified FPD with loop connectors provide natural appearance of the restoration and also preserve the remaining tooth structure of abutment teeth. This clinical report deals with the treatment using modified FPD with loop connectors to retain the diastemas while replacing the missing teeth in the maxillary aesthetic zone.
