Numerous studies have shown that masticatory performance deteriorates as the number of posterior teeth and occlusal surface area decrease. Congenitally missing teeth (CMT), or usually called as hypodontia, is a highly prevalent dental anomaly. Missing molars can also be because of endodontic or periodontal problems. This article reviews the various causes of missing molars and their various treatment options.

An implant supported crown or a conventional fpd is the most common treatment for the replacement of maxillary anterior teeth. The maxillary anterior region claims both esthetic and functional rehabilitation. The important factors involved in the replacement are - bone in the edentulous area, occlusal function, systemic conditions, socioeconomic status and willingness of the patients.The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of tme duration for esthetic zone replacement after extraction. The study was conducted as a retrospective university-based study. Data of patients who underwent fpd treatment in maxillary anterior region was collected and analysed using SPSS software and the results were obtained. Chi square test was used to find the association between groups.The frequency rate of replacement of maxillary anterior was highest in the age group between 26 - 45 years (63.4 %). The frequency of replacement was higher in males (59.7 %) than in females. Most of the replacements were done at 2 months time interval. However, no statistically significant association was found between the groups.
