A 28-year-old male patient came with the chief complaint of missing front teeth. On examination, the anterior bite is collapsed with no space for the replacement of fixed prosthesis. The patient was started by means of a conventional fixed orthodontic therapy, in which bite opening mechanics were used like the leveling of curve of spee in the lower arch and removable prosthesis with anterior bite plate incorporated, in the upper arch. After 15 months of orthodontic treatment, adequate bite opening was achieved for the replacement of the prosthesis. The interdisciplinary approach gave the patient not only the best possible esthetics but also functional outcome.
