ZAROR, Carlos; HOPE LOPEZ, Bárbara; DIAZ MELENDEZ, Jaime  y  JANS MUNOZ, Alejandra. Fixed prosthesis with tube-bar system in pediatric dentistry: A case report over 12 months of follow-up. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.3, pp.239-243. ISSN 0719-0107.

Introduction Premature loss of primary incisors may result in aesthetic, functional and psychologic problems. Prosthetic restoration allows replacing missing teeth, avoiding the unwanted consequences that their absence may carry. Objective The aim of this clinical case is to describe the technique and clinical evolution of a Denari fixed anterior prosthesis over 12 months of follow-up. Case description 3 year-old female patient sought professional attention after the avulsion of the upper central incisors. In order to restore the natural appearance of the anterior superior area, recover oral function and intervene in the habit of tongue interposition, the treatment decided upon was a partially fixed Denari prosthesis. During the follow-up year the prosthesis was very well tolerated by the patient and without altering any adjacent soft tissues. We highlight an increase in the interincisal space, which demonstrates transversal growth. Conclusion A dental prosthesis in a child is a demanding task marked by the need to adapt to the continuous changes brought about by maxillofacial growth and maturation. It is in this context that the Denari prosthesis with its tube-bar system is an excellent and esthetic alternative in young patients where the prosthesis is going to remain in place for a prolonged period without interfering in the growth, development and function of the stomatognatic system.
