Abstract

Rehabilitation of a patient with a missing anterior tooth is a challenging task. There are various treatment options which are available to restore the edentulous span, which includes removable partial denture, fixed partial denture, resin bonded fixed partial denture and implant supported restorations. This rehabilitation procedure becomes challenging when there is presence of diastema, which increases the mesio distal space. Loop connector fixed partial denture is an ideal choice to restore this space. This treatment modality is the simplest and provides function and esthetics. This case report describes the fabrication of a loop connector cantilevered fixed partial denture to restore an excessively wide anterior edentulous span.
