Sharon, Eldad / Ben-Gal, Gilad / Smidt, Ami / Beyth, Nurit
Hypodontia is a relatively common finding, although rarely are the canines the missing teeth. Congenitally missing canines are challenging to treat because of their unique role in the masticatory system and the fact that they are in the esthetic zone. This article discusses two patients with missing permanent canines, various treatment planning considerations, and the provided prosthetic solutions.
