Modified ridge lap pontic and the sanitary pontic introduced to minimize or even avoid any contact between the pontic and the mucosa. An ovate pontic is recommended to fulfill esthetic and functional requirements. The aim of this study focuses on evaluating the design in FPD. By reviewing various articles through search engines pubmed, google scholar, journal of science with period or duration consideration from 2000-2020 articles this systematic analysis have been made. This review article gives detailed analysis on the designs and indications, application on each different pontics.
