A combined prosthodontic and orthodontic treatment approach in a case of growth inhibition induced by dental implants: A case report
Krieger, Elena / Wegener, Joachim / Wagner, Wilfried / Hornikel, Sandra / Wehrbein, Heinrich
Functional and esthetic results can improve significantly when a combined prosthodonticorthodontic treatment approach is employed in cases requiring extensive oral rehabilitation. The patient presented in this case report was treated in his late teens with dental implants as a replacement for his maxillary incisors. Ten years later, the entire maxillary anterior segment was in infraocclusion compared to the rest of the dentition and lip line. Since prosthodontic follow-up treatment alone could not achieve an optimal functional and esthetic outcome, the patient was treated orthodontically prior to renewing the restoration. A fixed appliance was used to intrude the mandibular anterior teeth as well as vertically align the infrapositioned maxillary lateral incisors.
