Course Description:

Today, the single-tooth implant has become one of the most common treatment alternatives for the replacement of missing teeth. The most important advantage of using implants to replace missing lateral incisors is that they leave proximal teeth untouched. Implants have become the restoration of choice for most patients when the treatment option is to maintain space for the missing lateral incisor.

Upon completion of this presentation, the participant should be able to:
• Discuss treatment options for orthodontic patients who have congenital absence of maxillary lateral incisors;
• Describe the criteria that should be considered in creating a treatment plan using a single tooth implant;
• Understand how the anatomy of young orthodontic patients can affect treatment outcomes;
• Understand the proper timing for implant placement and the consequences of pre-mature placement;
• Recognize the need for augmentation surgery;
• Recognize the importance of interdisciplinary treatment planning to achieve optimal anterior esthetics.
