Substituting congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors with implant-borne crowns: A topic still worth a discussion?

Published:February 05, 2020DOI:https://doi.org/10.1053/j.sodo.2020.01.005

      Abstract

      As the current evidence about the “best” approach for tackling the problem of uni- or bilateral agenesis of maxillary lateral incisors is still conflicting, several options need to be evaluated for each individual patient. While space closure seems to be the safer option for avoiding long-term sequelae, especially progressive infraocclusion, the latest improvements in implanto-prosthodontics, if coupled with comprehensive orthodontic pretreatment, can achieve excellent esthetic and functional outcomes at least in the mid to long term, provided that patient compliance is guaranteed.
