Successful use of a single-retainer all-ceramic resin-bonded fixed partial denture for replacement of a maxillary canine: A clinical report
Foitzik, Magdalena / Lennon, Áine / Attin, Thomas
This clinical report describes the prosthodontic treatment of a 60-year-old woman to close an edentulous space in the region of the maxillary canine. Single-retainer resin-bonded fixed partial dentures (FPD) have shown satisfactory results in different studies. Recent in vivo studies have shown excellent results for all-ceramic anterior FPDs after 5 years. In the present situation, a cantilevered all-ceramic FPD chosen to replace a missing maxillary canine showed success at the 2.5-year follow-up. Special attention was given to functional and minimal restorative considerations. The use of single-retainer all-ceramic FPDs is discussed. The present case does not represent a routine and well-documented approach for the replacement of a missing maxillary canine. Rather, it is a rarity that was successful because of space availability, present occlusal scheme, and patient cooperation. Implant-supported restorations always should be considered as the first treatment option in such a clinical situation.
