Description

Missing Premolars: Can Early Treatment Make a Difference?

This lecture will review the longevity of primary molars that have no successors. Treatment options for children with missing premolars will be shown with case histories that highlight the advantages and disadvantages of each option. Short- and long-term case histories will demonstrate the treatment results.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the likely consequences of retaining primary molars that have no successors
  • Describe the advantages and disadvantages of treatment alternatives for children with missing premolars
  • Recognize the advantages of space closure in children with missing premolars


Early Treatment for Missing Teeth

Treatment of malocclusions with multiple or single missing teeth could be more effective and efficient when started in the mixed dentition. Main advantage: easier space closure by controlled dental drifting, possible transplants, possible keeping and subsistence of deciduous teeth and less invasive treatment in permanent dentition. Crucial points: accurate diagnosis, priorities in treatment plan and precise timing of detailed clinical procedures.Overall goal: the possibility to finish treatment before adolescence, minimize prosthetic replacement and allow conservative restorations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Plan a conservative, cheap, non invasive, long-term stable treatment for single or multiple missing teeth in kids
  • Manage and trust deciduous teeth and auto-transplants in case of missing teeth in the mixed dentition
  • Distinguish different priorities for early treatment of missing teeth in the different areas of the mouth
