Case Study
A missing tooth in a dental office is always a potential case for a bridge or an implant. Advantage of a prosthesis is that treatment outcome is predictable and the time taken is shorter. Another possibility that can be explored in some cases, especially in young individuals is the closure of such spaces to give a physiologically balanced occlusion, thus avoiding the lifelong maintenance of prosthesis. many orthodontic patients have posterior spacing due to either a missing tooth or extracted due to caries. this article deals with posterior bilateral (iatrogenic) extraction spaces closed orthodontically by molar protraction.
