Rachana Chaudhary | Dinesh Kumar [28]

Abstract: Patients with missing tooth along with diastema have limited treatment options to restore. If implants are not indicated, use of fixed partial denture to replace the missing tooth may result in too wide anterior teeth leading to poor aesthetics. The use of removable partial denture creates discomfort to the patient. Loop connector is the fixed dental prosthesis replacing the missing teeth while maintaining the diastema and provide optimum aesthetics. This case report describes rehabilitation of a patient with FPD along with loop connector in maxillary anterior region in which diastema was maintained.
