Planning a course of treatment for periodontally compromised patients is a multidisciplinary approach. The goal of treatment should aim at achieving the physiologic form, esthetics, and function of all teeth and also to stabilize the tooth mobility by splinting if the teeth are to be preserved. Hence, replacing a missing tooth in a periodontally compromised patient involves the joint collaboration of periodontist, prosthodontist, and endodontist, and, at times, orthodontists are involved to achieve the treatment goal. This case presents management of missing tooth in periodontally compromised patients (periodontal prosthetic ptients) using indirect fiber-reinforced prosthesis which acts as periodontal prosthesis.
