Abstract

How to close gaps with the lingual technique in cases of agenesis of the upper lateral incisor is a therapeutic decision orthodontists often have to make. We have decided to discuss the mechanical and strategic aspects of this issue that arise when we implement the lingual technique to treat this disorder, which is a major source of concern for our patients since its esthetic repercussions for the smile are so great.
