Summary:

Orthodontists treat many patients who are missing maxillary lateral incisors and/or mandibular second premolars. In the past, if the canines could not be substituted for lateral incisors, conventional full-coverage bridges were the common restoration. Recently, resin-bonded Maryland bridges became a popular substitute for conventional bridges to avoid crowns on the nonrestored abutments. However, resin-bonded bridges have a poor long-term prognosis for retention, lasting on average about 10 years. Since implants were introduced into dentistry by Swedish researchers in the mid 1980s, they have become a promising substitute for conventional or resin-bonded bridges. However, to successfully place and restore single-tooth implants in young orthodontic patients, several questions must be answered. This article will discuss the many interdisciplinary issues that are involved in placing and restoring single-tooth implants in orthodontic patients. (Semin Orthod 1997; 3:45-72.)

Orthodontic Management of Spaces in Adult Patients Missing a Maxillary Tooth Premium Member Content

Orthodontic Management of Spaces in Adult Patients Missing a Maxillary Tooth
Treating an adult patient is quite common nowadays. Planning orthodontic treatment for these patients goes beyond esthetics and achieving a Class I occlusion. An adult malocclusion, in contrast to an adolescent one, may have suffered abrasion, periodontal deterioration, loss of teeth, etc. All these events may impede an excellent orthodontic result. The ideal dimensions of anterior teeth might not apply in all adult cases due to the above-mentioned factors. The presentation reviews the actual space requirements and how these are managed in adult malocclusions and restored to make them ideal for each individual case where an anterior tooth is absent.
