Pontic site development with a root submergence technique for a screw-retained prosthesis in the anterior maxilla

Published:September 16, 2013DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.prosdent.2013.06.009
      Techniques for pontic site development usually involve various hard and soft tissue augmentation procedures. This article describes an alternative approach to developing a pontic site by using a root submergence technique for a screw-retained fixed dental prosthesis in the anterior maxilla.
