In answer to Mark Ballard's question about building a crown on a TAD for a missing lateral: I did it on one patient so far with two missing laterals. The left one lasted a month and the right one stayed on for about three months. This was a very difficult and active 14 y.o. male and was probably the wrong patient, but I was having trouble getting him to wear a removable without breaking it. Although it did not work for him, I will be trying it again on another patient. I think it can work. They looked great.

It's much better to use one of the temporary implants which is special made for this purpose. I had used these when still practicing in the US. Steri-Oss has (or at least had) such a product called the IPI; as does Dentatus: http://www.dentatus.com/ Imtec markets the MDI/Sendax which was the basis for their ortho TAD fixture, but its shape doesn't really lend itself for that purpose.
