The aim of this study was to assess the retention forces and mechanical behavior of different types of wires matched with different kinds of composites in lingual(More)
An hopeless upper central incisor was subjected to forced eruption in order to improve and develop the implant site by distraction of the periodontal ligament-alveolar bone complex. The orthodontic extrusion was carried out with two aesthetic approaches: lingual orthodontics and a composite resin 2-2 veneer pontic. The first part of the extrusion was(More)

A hopeless upper central incisor was subjected to forced eruption before implant substitution to improve and develop the amount of soft tissue. This involved a GBR to insert the implant and a GTR to regenerate the tissue around the dehiscence of the nearby lateral using a "Guided Orthodontic Regeneration" (GOR) approach. The extrusion was performed(More)
