Title: Maxillary Lateral Incisor Agenesis (MLIA) and implant: is it really the best solution?


AIMS: To precise the width of the future pros. To precise the soft tissue mouvements around adjacent teeth and the implant supported crown. To precise the mouvements of the adjacent teeth

METHODS: In front of a lateral agenesis, many treatment options are available. Opening or closing the space, extracting the contralateral incisor sometimes small, removable denture, bonded bridge, bonded cantilever bridge, fixed bridge, implant. The diagnosis of lateral incisor agenesis is first done by radiographic exam and, from the beginning of the orthodontic treatment, it is important to know if the implant solution will be achieved. Implant feasibility must meet certain conditions concerning the bone corridor: height and thickness, width of the mesio-distal space and parallelism of the roots of the 2 adjacent teeth. However, in 60 to 85%, it is necessary to augment bone and/or soft tissues. The benefit/safety ratio, but also the age when orthodontic treatment is carried out, must help to choose the most suitable and sustainable solution. The long-term evaluation of peri-implant tissues shows, with varying selection criteria, more than 70% implants with mucositis (equivalent of gingivitis around teeth) and 55% with peri-implantitis (bone loss).

Results and Conclusions: Finally, several studies concerning single-implant restoration in the esthetic area, after more than 15 years of follow-up, evaluate tooth movements and changes of anterior clinical crown height, and the results are very disappointing.
