Replacement of missing teeth in growing children is one of the challenges an orthodontist encounters. Removable partial denture or resin-bonded fixed denture can be considered as replacement options, but they promote alveolar bone loss due to lack of alveolar loading. Removable denture is undesirable as adolescents are self-conscious in revealing the edentulous space while eating. Resin-bonded fixed denture compromise alveolar and gingival contours. Dental implants are not placed in growing children due to remaining growth. Orthodontic miniscrews can be efficiently used for interim restoration before skeletal growth. The current article presents a case report of miniscrew-assisted interim tooth pontic.
