The replacement of a missing tooth with an implant prosthesis has revolutionized oral rehabilitation by providing a predictable treatment modality. However, the placement of an incorrectly angulated implant results in several complications posing a demanding clinical scenario for prosthetic rehabilitation. An improperly angulated implant in the anterior esthetic zone can be restored with the help on a 2 unit Paulo Malo prosthesis in order to rectify the angulation, restoring the correct arch form, mask the labial screw holes and is easy to disassemble and repair; providing good retrievability.
