ABSTRACT
Premature loss of maxillary primary incisors often results from early childhood caries (ECC), trauma. While space maintenance in the posterior region is an important consideration when there is early loss of primary molars, the anterior segment appears to be stable, even with the early loss of several incisors, once the primary canines erupt. However, collapse of anterior arch integrity is evident in cases where incisor teeth are in a crowded dentition prior to extraction or lost before the eruption of the primary canines. So, when early loss of maxillary primary incisors, the aim of restoration is esthetics, speech problem, oral habit such as tongue thrusting than space maintenance. This paper reports that the esthetic problem due to premature loss of maxillary incisors can be successfully resolved by soldered open-faced stainless steel crown.
