Title : Anterior loop connector fixed partial Denture – a case report


Replacement of anterior teeth with ridge defect and diastema is a complex challenging scenario with regards to the prosthesis as well as esthetics. Different aesthetic treatment options such as implant-supported restoration, conventional fixed partial denture, and removable partial denture need to be explored in treating such a patient. Problems posed may include drifting of teeth into edentulous areas which may reduce available pontic space, whereas diastema existing before an extraction may result in the excessive mesiodistal dimension of pontic space. In such cases, loop connectors may be used to maintain the diastema in a planned fixed prosthesis. This article aims to describe the procedure for the fabrication of a loop connector fixed partial denture to restore an excessively wide anterior edentulous space in a patient with existing spacing between the maxillary anterior teeth.
