Multidisciplinary Treatment Approach with one Piece Implants for Congenitally Missing Maxillary Lateral Incisors: A Case Report


Abstract - Congenitally missing lateral incisors are a common clinical occurrence. Dental Implants have become a primary treatment option for replacement of these teeth. Many times in prosthodontic treatment planning a multidisciplinary approach is needed for a comprehensive out come. Prosthodontic treatment planning is needed prior to the patient’s consultation and following treatment acceptance; the prosthodontist may need to coordinate treatment needs with other specialists, including an orthodontist and an implant surgeon. This article describes multidisciplinary management of a case presenting with spaced maxillary anteriors due to the congenitally missing lateral incisors. Treatment consisted of initial orthodontic space management to obtain adequate space for missing lateral incisors. Single piece, narrow diameter implants were placed in edentulous spaces on both sides. Aesthetic crown lengthening procedure was performed with all anterior teeth along with tissues surrounding the implants. Metal-ceramic crowns were given as definitive restorations, resulting into an acceptable aesthetic outcome.

KEY WORDS: Aesthetic crown lengthening, orthodontic treatment, one piece implants, single tooth implants, congenitally missing lateral incisors, mini-implants
