Abstract

Midline diastema is a common problem amongst the adults which has a great impact on the aesthetics. Common causes for the development of such a condition include high frenum attachment, proclination of teeth, dentoalveolar disproportion etc. The treatment of such condition requires accurate diagnosis of aetiology and its elimination followed by space closure using orthodontic modalities. This case report presents a case of 20 year old female patient with the chief complaint of space between the upper front teeth. High frenum attachment was diagnosed as primary aetiology and was eliminated by laser assisted frenectomy. The space closure was accomplished using orthodontic treatment. One year follow up showed a satisfactory outcome with complete closure of midline diastema and rehabilitation of aesthetics.

Keywords: Diastema closure, Diode laser, Frenectomy, High frenum attachment.
