I read an article that said removing the deciduous molars to allow for space closure when the adult second bicuspids are missing is much more successful if they are removed by a young age. I don't remember what that age was and I am unable to find the article. What is the consensus on removing deciduous molars early in these cases? I have a 7y.o. male patient missing all second bicuspids. He would not be a good extraction case and if he were older, I would plan to implant the bicuspids (and maybe I still should). I am thinking that he is young enough to treat him without implants. Worst case scenario would be that I have to open some space back up again for implants. Any thoughts?
I have seen late developing lower 2nd premolars( starting at the age of 10 years old). It is rare but it does happen.
