Optimal restoration of a patient with restorative space issues depends on several interdependent factors such as the amount of restorative space available, amount of restorative space required for the proposed dental restorations and prosthesis, quality, and quantity of remaining dentition and residual alveolar ridge and esthetic and functional patient demands.
