Abstract

Prolonged missing of single posterior tooth is often associated with drifting and tilting of adjacent teeth and/or over-eruption of opposing tooth. Restoration of such missing posterior tooth necessitates realignment of mal-positioned tooth/teeth and restoration of regular occlusal plane, otherwise secondary malocclusion with occlusal interference may result in poor functional outcomes and negative consequences. Close co-operation and collaboration between Prosthodontist and Orthodontist is of paramount importance for predictable and successful final restoration. A case report is discussed illustrating restoration of missing single mandibular first molar associated with grossly over-erupted opposing molar by interdisciplinary treatment between Prosthodontics and Orthodontics of the University of Dental Medicine, Mandalay, Myanmar.
