Abstract

This case involved periodontal supportive care after non-surgical management of localized, severe chronic periodontitis (possibly with a history of aggressive periodontitis) and periodontal abscess. This included maintaining the current periodontal health, and rehabilitation of patient’s oral function and aesthetic concern using simple, economical and reversible direct restorations without further damaging the patient’s dentition for example composite resin as splint. Besides that, to address the patient’s complaint of unsightly gaps in between the teeth, an acrylic gingival prosthesis with denture tooth incorporated was constructed.
