Treatment of congenitally missing lateral incisors in growing patient.

Dr. Kirsch has developed surgical techniques and treatment protocols for managing congenitally missing teeth in the growing patient.  Typically, dental implants are placed in the jaws after someone has stopped growing.   Removable appliances such as retainers with fake teeth are troublesome for most kids as they must be removed during meals.  The photos show before and after the placement of temporary implants  with bone grafting.  The temporary crowns were placed the same day.  Eventually, these implants will be replaced with permanent implants once the patient has stopped growing.
