Abstract

The most promising solution to missing teeth in today’s world seems to be Implants. Conventional fixed partial dentures and resin bonded bridges are the most commonly used alternatives. However, it is not always possible to use these solutions, especially in case of missing anteriors with excessive space. A simple yet often overlooked solution to replacing missing teeth and maintaining the diastema is use of Loop connectors.
This article presents a case with excessive space in the anterior region treated with a loop connector to achieve ideal esthetic results in the maxillary anterior segment.
