The management of missing teeth presents some challenges to the orthodontist. Upper lateral incisors and second premolars are commonly missing, and decisions need to be made on whether to close spaces or open spaces for prosthetic replacement. Maintenance of spaces in growing individuals then needs to be considered. This presentation will be a highly clinical lecture with a review of the main issues facing an orthodontist in treatment planning of missing teeth.
