Abstract

Forced eruption has been proposed to expose subgingival carious lesion and achieve the biologic width when treating a tooth with subgingival dental caries. The aim of this report was to propose a new digital approach of orthodontic forced eruption. By using CAD program, orthodontic forced eruption could be planned 3-dimensionally. Using an adjacent implant as an absolute anchor, orthodontic bracket and wire were not needed.
