SINGLE MISSING TOOTH

If one or several teeth are missing, an implant can be used to avoid filing down adjacent teeth. In this case, an implant is the better solution because it protects the existing tissue.


SHORTER ROW OF TEETH

A shorter row of teeth (i.e. missing molars) normally requires the preperation of a removable prosthesis because of the missing abutment tooth at the back. Removable dentures can be avoided by using implants. Replacing these missing teeth is important! It prevents diseases that impair the functioning of the jaw joint and helps maintain a full chewing function.

 

TOOTHLESS JAW WITH REMOVABLE DENTURES  (KEEPING OF THE EXISTING PROSTHESIS)

The condition of the jaw in patients suffering from complete toothlessness is often so unfavourable that a removable full prosthesis does not stay in its place. This problem can be improved significantly by using implants with stud attachments or bar constructions.

 

Toothless jaw with fixed dentures

Six to eight implants can fully restore a completely toothless jaw with a fixed denture.
