Hypodontia is the congenital absence of <6 teeth because of agenesis. The absence of teeth may be unilateral or bilateral. Several treatment options are indicated to treat hypodontia, including the maintenance of primary teeth or space redistribution for restorative treatment with partial adhesive bridges, tooth transplantation, and implants. However, an interdisciplinary approach is the most important requirement for the ideal treatment of hypodontia. This case report describes the interdisciplinary treatment of a 17-year-old female with missing teeth (mandibular central and lateral incisors), deep overbite, and spacing. The treatment plan included the first orthodontic correction and prosthetic management using fiber-reinforced composite bridge for missing teeth. CLINICAL RELEVANCE TO INTERDISCIPLINARY DENTISTRY Correction of dental problems is a complex procedures and usually it requires a interdisiplinary approch for the best outcome. Interdisiplinary dentistry covers the broad area and involves management of patient records, diagnose the various problem, and establising the chain of communication.
