reatment planning for missing maxillary lateral incisors is a common clinical predicament encountered by orthodontists and
prosthodontists. Three main treatment options exist including: canine substitution; a tooth supported restoration; or a single
tooth dental implant. An interdisciplinary approach is important throughout treatment planning, and subsequent treatment can
involve dental team members such as an orthodontist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon and prosthodontist. The advantage of using
dental implants to replace maxillary lateral incisors lies in excellent success and survival rates, and the lack of need to involve
adjacent teeth in a fixed restoration. A 23 year old male patient was referred to the clinic after appropriate orthodontic treatment
had been completed. Computerized tomography and clinical examination revealed that two narrow dental implant could be placed
for congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors. Three months after the placement of implants, a modified flap was applied for
increasing the buccal soft tissue. Subsequently soft tissue healing, prosthetic restorations were completed with zircone porcelain
restoration. The predictability of implant therapy has revolutionized how clinicians treat a wide array of tooth replacement situations,
including the problem of a congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisor. Although a number of therapeutic alternatives should be
considered, treatment with implants allows the clinician to avoid the preparation of adjacent teeth and provides a predictable and
enduring solution to the clinical problem.
