Dental implants have become an accepted treatment modality for aging patients with either completely or partially edentulous arches. However, growing patients, with congenitally missing permanent teeth, often need dental implant treatment for optimum functional and psychosocial development. From a developmental perspective, dental implants cannot accompany the physiologic differentiation of the alveolar bone because of the difference in anchorage between an osseointegrated dental implant and tooth in bone. In this case report, a multidisciplinary team approach, which included an orthodontist, an oral surgeon, and a prosthodontist, in the treatment of a patient with agenesia of the upper lateral incisors, is discussed.
