Composite Pontics for Orthodontic Patients with Extraction Spaces
Parsekian Martins, Renato / Magno, Amanda Fahning / Parsekian Martins, Isabela / Parsekian Martins, Lidia / White, Larry W.

This has led orthodontists to design temporary pontics that fill extraction sites and that can be reduced as the spaces close. This report describes a simple, efficient, and expeditious technique for making such pontics.
