Abstract

A maxillary midline diastema (MMD) is a common form of incomplete occlusion and often is a primary complaint of patients during dental consultations. MMD is considered to be a multifactorial phenomenon and can therefore be best restored with a multidisciplinary approach. This clinical report presents a multidisciplinary approach to the management of a 4.0-mm MMD by using limited orthodontics combined with periodontal and prosthodontic treatments.
