Orthodontic Case Presentation 2

Patient Info: 26 years old, Female

Patient’s Chief Complaint: missing tooth due to trauma, spaces between lower teeth, uncomfortable bite.

Assessment & Evaluation Prior to Treatment: missing upper central incisor, mandibular anterior spacing.

Treatment: We first leveled and aligned both arches with orthodontic brackets leaving enough space to replace the tooth lost due to trauma.  Once everything was positioned appropriately, a bridge was fabricated to replace the missing tooth.  An implant was not an option to replace her tooth in this particular case due to the extensive bone grafting that would have been necessary.
