A combination of dental problems such as missing teeth, proclination of teeth and occlusal problems cannot be satisfactorily treated by prosthodontic approach alone. The rehabilitation of patients requiring an esthetic smile demands the collaboration of multiple dental specialists. the need for orthodontic tooth movement prior to restorative treatment is necessary for some patients, in order to optimize both esthetic and functional aspects of dental treatment.
The present case report achieved successful implant based oral rehabilitation in a patient with  absence of the right maxillary central incisor utilizing a preprosthetic orthodontic implant site preparation for the purpose of space gain.
