|Abstract:||A new and simple technique for aesthetic tooth replacement during orthodontic treatment, with a pontic using orthodontic wire mesh, is described and appears in the author's clinical practise to be superior to the other techniques reported previously. These pontics may be used in maxillary first bicuspid extraction cases, and with adaptation where anterior teeth have to be replaced because of agenesis, extractions, or traumatic loss. This technique thus also provides the clinician with an aesthetic and dependable space maintainer for anterior teeth whilst orthodontic treatment is being completed.|
