Edentulous spaces in the dental arches have conventionally been managed with either implants or other fixed or removable prostheses. This article describes another possibility of orthodontically closing these extraction spaces, especially in young individuals, thereby restoring an ideal occlusion and arch integrity without the need of aprosthesis. This article presentscase reports where the edentulous spaces were closed orthodontically, leaving no room for a prosthesis, thereby providing a physiologically balanced occlusion and avoiding the lifelong maintenance of a prosthesis.
