A 38-year-old female patient reported with a chief complaint of spacing between anterior teeth, and she desire to improve her facial esthetics. The patient was diagnosed with chronic generalized periodontitis with generalized horizontal bone loss on the basis of clinical and radiographic findings. On orthodontic evaluation, she has proclined upper and lower anterior with Class I molar relationship bilaterally and a canine Class I relationship bilaterally. She was treated with an interdisciplinary therapeutic protocol that included nonsurgical periodontal therapy, endodontic treatment, orthodontic therapy, and prosthetic rehabilitation. The orthodontic therapy was performed in generalized horizontal bone loss having loss of bone support in mandibular anterior region. Space closure was done using prosthetic rehabilitation in a healthy periodontium. The interdisciplinary treatment protocol was the key factor in achieving significant improvement in facial and dental esthetics, masticatory function, and quality of life of the patient.
