Abstract

The treatment and management of hypodontia are complex. Traditional treatments include the provision of conventional bridgework. Such treatment modalities are destructive of remaining tooth tissue particularly as the majority of patients presenting for treatment are young adults. This case report describes a 22 year old female Caucasian patient who was treated for missing permanent teeth using conservative adhesive non destructive techniques resulting in a pleasing aesthetic outcome.
