ABSTRACT
Prosthetic dentistry involves the replacement of missing and contiguous tissues with artificial substitutes to restore and maintain the oral functions, appearance, and health of the patient. The treatment of edentulous areas with ridge defects poses a challenging task for the dentist. Management of such cases involves a wide range of treatment options comprising mainly of surgical interventions and non surgical techniques such as use of removable, fixed or fixed- removable partial dentures. But each treatment plan undertaken should be customized according to patient needs. A variety of factors such as quality and quantity of existing contiguous hard and soft tissues, systemic condition and economic status of the patient play an important role in treatment planning, clinical outcome and prognosis. This case report presents the restoration of a Seibert's Class III ridge defect by an economical modification of Andrews Bridge in a 32 Year old patient.

Mentions: The framework was again tried in after application of Porcelain (Ceramco-3, Dentsply, USA). Afterwards, the framework was reseated on the cast and a self-polymerizing clear acrylic (DPI, India) flange was fabricated from the bar in the framework till the soft tissues on the base of the defect. The tissue surface of the flange simulated the sanitary pontic design [Figure 2]. A magnet (NdFeB magnet, Ni-plated–disc shaped magnet 2 mm × 1.5 mm in size, Techtone Electronics, Mumbai, India) was placed in buccolingual and mesiodistal center of the lingual surface of this flange [Figure 3a]
