Multidisciplinary treatment of congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors.
A 19-year-old female patient, with good general and oral health, presented with multiple aplasias, substantial vertical overlap (overbite), and a medium-to-high smile line. Four years ago, she received pre-prosthetic orthodontic treatment to insert resin-bonded fixed partial dentures at positions #12 and #22 FDI (#7 and #10 US). Following further facial growth, she is now ready to replace her partial dentures with implants. Of note, the patient's primary second molars persist without problems.
Single implant treatment:
The patient received Nobel Active 3.5 (13 mm) implants and simultaneous bone augmentation with bone substitute (Geistlich Bio-Oss®). Prosthetic solutions used were the NobelProcera® ASC abutment with FCZ (full contour zirconia) crown with buccal cut-backs and surface porcelain.
