Abstract

Replacing a missing canine with a dental implant is the optimal treatment plan. The strategic roles canines play in maintaining normal function and the high visibility of these teeth, especially in the maxilla, require a restoration that provides uncompromised function and aesthetics. Eliminating lateral forces on the implant can minimize implant complications, but in young patients (ie, with steep canine guidance) achieving such a goal presents a restorative challenge. This article discusses several considerations (ie, ease of maintenance, retrievability) that will affect the design of the definitive restoration.
