Despite the advances in caries prevention, early childhood caries (ECC) is a frequently encountered reality in the dental office. The maxillary primary anterior teeth are usually affected in the early stages of ECC, with early pulpal involvement and destruction of the crown structure. The management of grossly decayed maxillary anterior teeth presents a challenge to the clinician. This case report describes the placement of a fixed appliance to replace missing maxillary incisors and discusses the factors to consider before treatment planning.
