Surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion: A modified approach in a patient with a missing lateral incisor


In conventional surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion, a diastema is opened between the central incisors. A case is presented in which the surgical procedure was modified so that the split of the maxilla occurred in the region of a missing lateral incisor rather than at the midline. This facilitated restoration of the space with a prosthetic tooth almost immediately following surgery.
