Esthetic rehabilitation of patients with Anterior ridge defect: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Introduction: Alveolar ridge defects occur due to maxillofacial trauma, accidents, traumatic tooth extraction, advanced periodontal dis¬eases. These defects when occur in anterior region needs hard and soft tissue augmentation. Though many techniques exist for effective soft and hard tissue augmentation, approach is mainly based on the extent of the defect and specific procedures for prosthetic rehabilitation. Autogenous bone graft is considered as a gold standard tratment for ridge augmentation followed by Fixed partial denture.
Case Report: This article presents case report of hard tissue augmentation in seibert`s class 3 alveolar ridge defect followed by Fixed partial denture in missing left maxillary central incisor region.
Conclusion: Use of innovative techniques to achieve esthetic results in fixed partial denture treatment procedures makes loop connectors a suitable and a viable treatment option. Successful ridge augmentation helps to improve esthetic prosthetic rehabilitation. In the present case combination of perio-prosthetic management has helped to improve esthetics.
