MODIFIED VERSION OF ADHESIVE BRIDGE, CLINICAL CASE REPORT
Restoration of primary and secondary partial adentia with adhesive bridges (Maryland bridges) is an achievement of Practical Odontology. This scientific article covers correction of aesthetic and functional discomfort caused by one tooth loss, using a splint. Despite the authors rich clinical experience in modeling of composite adhesive bridges (227 patients and 253 modeling teeth), it is not common in practice to use man’s own tooth in restoration of partial adentia. The article describes a clinical case of a patient, who lost tooth due to localized periodontitis. The 2.1 tooth restoration was made not with composite crown attached to adhesive splint (INTERLIG, Angelus), but with own extracted 2.1 tooth. The clinical result was satisfactory. Maximum harmony was gained between modeling adhesive bridge, smile line and occlusion.
