Pakistan Prosthodontics Association Senior Professor of Prosthodontics/Director Medical Education at Quetta institute of Medical Sciences, National University of Medical Sciences Islamabad.

There is scientific evidence suggesting that maxillary lateral incisors are one of the most often congenitally missing teeth. Congenital absence leads to tilting, drifting, rotation and supra-occlusion of neighboring and opposing teeth. These changes affect the esthetics, periodontal health, caries index and orthodontic/Prosthodontic treatment outcomes.

Teamwork is the hallmark of present day dentistry and shall stay there for long as more and more specialties are emerging within dentistry. In this presentation, harmony of teamwork in treatment planning, sequencing the steps of treatment and reaching a desired goal shall be discussed in detail. Role of veneers, ceramic crowns, minimal preparation FPDs and dental implants along with short case reports shall also be incorporated and this is supposed to be beneficial to students, general dentists and specialists from Prosthodontics, orthodontics and restorative dentistry.
