Abstract: AUTHORS: Mesotten K, Naert I, van Steenberghe D, Willems G. OBJECTIVES: Orthodontic correction of bilateral maxillary canine impaction with agenesis of the lower second premolars and extraction of the lower first molars in an adult patient. METHODS: After surgical exposure, the canines were relocated in the arch by means of immediate orthodontic traction. Endosseous Branemark system implants were inserted in the lower jaw with a double purpose: stabilization of orthodontic anchorage and prosthetic tooth replacement. RESULTS: Closure of the edentulous space in the lower arch was accomplished by a multidisciplinary approach while orthodontic correction of the initial malocclusion was achieved. CONCLUSION: Implants provided anchorage control for tooth movement and created the possibility of prosthetic rehabilitation through a multidisciplinary treatment approach.
