Share Abstract:

Current restorative modalities for young patients with missing anterior teeth


Pages: 231-240
PMID: 10332371

The early loss of permanent teeth following trauma or congenital aplasia may be corrected by orhtodntic or prosthetic means, sometimes combined with implant therapy. The orthodontic soluion results usually in different anatomic, functional, and esthetic problems. Prosthetic and implant procedures, on the other hand, are very demanding and require long-term maintenance. Considering these limitations, a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment plan is mandatory to achieve the most satisfactory clinical result. Modern restorative modalities, such as recontouring, bleaching, and resin composite bonding, may improve the final clinical result after orthodontic space closure. In more difficult situations, veneers and crowns may also be indicated.
