Restoration of a missing lateral incisor
Dr. Tidu Mankoo
Dental technicians Luc & Patrick Rutten
Patient with congenitally missing right and peg-shaped left lateral incisor. Orthodontic treatment was carried out to align the teeth and create the correct space for restoration of both lateral incisors. The maxillary left incisor was restored with a lithium disilicate veneer followed by extraction of right deciduous lateral incisor with immediate placement of a NobelActive® TiUltra™ implant and immediate provisionalisation. Simultaneous soft tissue augmentation was carried out with sub-epithelial connective tissue graft.
