Conservative management of tilted abutment: A case report
A common problem that occurs with some frequency is the mandibular molar abutment that has tilted mesially into the space formerly occupied by the lost natural teeth anterior to it. It is impossible to prepare the abutment teeth for a fixed partial denture along the long axes of the respective teeth and achieve common path of insertion. Management of tilted teeth can be done either orthodontically or by prosthetic means. This case report describes the use of proximal half-crown as a retainer of choice on tilted mandibular second molar to restore function and esthetic with fixed partial denture.
