Abstract

Premature loss of the primary mandibular cuspid has been considered rare. When this occurs, however, space maintenance should be considered to prevent distal drifting of the lateral incisor. The purpose of this case report was to document traumatic avulsion of the mandibular right lateral and cuspid. A lingual arch appliance with a spur was fabricated to maintain space and prevent movement of the mandibular incisors. Sequelae of premature loss of primary teeth is presented.
