Introduction: There is always a great anxiety in many patients when aesthetic impairment is involved after the removal of teeth, and this anxiety tends to be more significant. Immediate dentures for many years were considered to be a resorption-increasing factor. Well-fitting immediate dentures act as a bandage isolating the healing tissues from thermal and chemical damage and preventing food from entering the sockets. Case Report: A female patient of age 43 years treated with immediate partial denture with extracted lower incisors as a replacement with self cure acrylic denture base. Discussion: Within the past decade, as aesthetics have received more emphasis with treatment planning, resorption of the alveolar ridge following tooth extraction, especially in the anterior region has become a significant problem. There is a huge advantage of using the extracted teeth as a replacement as one of the strong indication for immediate is aesthetics. Conclusion: Immediate removable partial denture not only increases the aesthetic value, but also therapeutic purposes. For anterior region, where aesthetics is major concern, extracted teeth itself can be much helpful, which can provide excellent aesthetics.
