Authors(4) :-Dr. Chetali Ramchandani , Dr. Meenakshi Khandelwal, Dr. Vikas Punia, Dr. Vivek Sharma

Replacement of anterior missing teeth with malposed abutments poses a challenge to Prosthodontist. Ideally Orthodontics is always the first choice of treatment for aesthetic and functional rehabilitation of malaligned teeth but in some rare cases, the unwillingness of the patient for orthodontic correction brings a tough situation to the dentist. In such cases, the only other option for aesthetic restoration is fixed partial dentures. But each case presenting a different clinical picture requires modification from routine. This article presents case series of few such cases where fixed partial denture was used to rehabilitate the patients with missing or abraded teeth in anterior region but malocclusion was bothersome for rehabilitation.
