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.

According to the clinical condition and diagnostic findings, American College of prosthodontics (ACP) have developed a classification for partially edentulous patients. They are based on 4 criteria and each is based on 4 classification. The 4 criteria is based on location and extent of the edentulous span, condition of the abutment tooth ( localised adjunctive treatment, insufficient tooth structure), occlusal plane and the condition of the edentulous ridge. This classification is done to provide potential benefits to the clinicians and plan a proper treatment planning for the patients undergoing dental prosthesis. The adjunctive treatment are Periodontal treatment, endodontic treatment and orthodontic treatment involving any of the sextant. Fixed partial denture (FPD) is one of the most commonly employed treatments for replacement of missing teeth. Most of the patients prefer for a fixed replacement of the missing tooth. One such option is fixed partial denture. Splinting the adjacent teeth and replacing the missing teeth is how a fixed partial denture is done. The abutment teeth evaluation and its dental status is at most important for the success of the fixed partial denture. If there is any compromise in the dental status of the abutment teeth, adjunct therapy is done. This study aimed to identify the localised adjunctive treatment involved in the patient who had fixed partial denture treatment in a private dental hospital setup.
