Pragmatic way to a pleasant smile: Natural tooth pontic
Natural tooth pontic: An esthetic immediate solution for compromised anterior tooth
Grover, Shilpa
A missing anterior tooth can be psychologically as well as socially traumatic to the patient. Conservative solution for the restoration of a single edentulous space in anterior maxilla presents an aesthetic challenge to the clinician.
The objective of this presentation is to describe a simple, economical and fast method to replace a single anterior tooth utilizing an indirectly fabricated composite resin framework reinforced with polyethylene fiber and existing tooth as pontic. This particular design allows for exact repositioning of the coronal part of the extracted tooth in its original intra-oral 3-dimensional position, justifying the name 'NATURAL TOOTH PONTIC'.
