Authors(5) :-Dr. U. S. B. Lakshmi, Dr. R. SrinivasaRao, Dr. A. Rajesh, Dr. Ch. Anusha, Dr. R. N. Raviteja Reddy

The most effective prosthetic prophylaxis could be the prevention of causes leading to tooth extractions. Even the loss of a single tooth might cause dysfunction in the masticatory system. Besides the well-known consequences, like diminished masticatory, phonetic functions and esthetical problems we have to face the consequences related to morphological changes in the dentition leading to difficulties in prosthodontic treatment planning. So, the most important step in prosthodontic prophylaxis is the early replacement of the lost tooth. This review article gives an insight into various preventive prosthodontic measures given by different authors.
