AS21B58 - TAD Supported Space Closure in Agenesis Cases


Jun 27, 2021 10:55am ‐ Jun 27, 2021 11:15am

Description

Mesial space closure is an attractive method for resolving malocclusions associated with agenesis of the maxillary lateral incisors, because it avoids prosthetic implants. Key factors for success are anchorage control, detailed finishing and interdisciplinary cooperation with the restorative dentist. Protraction of the entire maxillary arch may be difficult with conventional biomechanics. Mesial sliders secured by two splinted palatal miniscrews, are efficient non-compliance appliances that enable fast and secure space closure by protraction of an entire maxillary dentition. It can be recommended as effective, but, as with many orthodontic appliances, it is not as easy and instant to use as perhaps we first thought because there are many factors that need to be considered to avoid application problems and to create acceptable results with a beautiful smile.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify missing lateral case which are suitable for space closure.
  • Design a bone born mesial slider.
  • Identify the most common problems of bone born space closure in cases of missing laterals.
