Rodrigues Lishoy, Jamenis Shilpa, Kadam Aljeeta, Shaikh Almas

Abstract: Maxillary midline diastema is a common esthetic problem in mixed and permanent dentition. The space can occur either as a transient malocclusion or created by developmental, pathological or iatrogenic factors. Many innovative therapies are available from restorative procedures such as composite build-up to surgery (frenectomies) and Orthodontics is available. Treatment depends upon the correct diagnosis of its etiology and early intervention relevant to the specific etiology. This case report is of a novel method of closure of midline diastema orthodontically, but without extensive complete arch orthodontic treatment. This case presents a technique in which space between central incisors is closed by using orthodontic forces between central incisors itself.
