Title: Esthetic and periodontal evaluation of implants vs canine substitution in patients with congenitally missing maxillary incisors after 5-10 years: Are there any new insights?

Abstract

Due to an incidence of 0.8-2% of uni- or bilateral agenesis of the maxillary lateral incisors in the general population,
orthodontic space closure (OSC) with canine mesialization and recontouring or space opening and subsequent insertion
of an implant-borne crown (IMP), are relatively frequent treatment procedures in modern orthodontics. Although scientific
evidence regarding the superiority of one treatment modality over the other is inconclusive, a trend for OSC has been reported.
The author will present an update on modern prerequisites for long-term implant and prosthodontic success, focusing on
correct 3D-implant placement, on additional hard and soft tissue grafting, and on meticulous peri-implant tissue molding with
provisional crowns. Two studies directly comparing OSC and IMP patients from the author’s private office will illustrate the
esthetic and periodontal outcomes in the short term and after a functional period of 5-10 years.
