The present case report outlines the interdisciplinary management of an adult patient presenting with advanced generalised periodontal attachment loss, an upper dental midline discrepancy following the previous extraction of the upper left central incisor, and significant lower arch crowding. The endodontic and periodontal condition was stabilised prior to the commencement of fixed appliance orthodontic treatment and subsequent prosthetic replacement of the upper left central incisor. Interdisciplinary management provided a functional occlusion and stability of the periodontal condition along with pleasing facial and smile aesthetics.
