VariationsPatients with missing teeth
Tooth loss can happen to anyone whether it’s due to tooth decay, gum disease (periodontal disease), inflammatory processes of the roots or by accident. All these factors affect the life of the tooth. The loss of a single tooth, several consecutive teeth in a row or the loss of all teeth can frequently benefit from implants.
Patients with inadequate denture retention
Even with pre-existing partial dentures or full denture implants, implants are a great patient-centred care option.
It is often the case that very old protheses simply no longer sit well and do not retain the way they should. This can be explained by the progressive bone loss or the overloading of armature teeth. It leads to problems with eating and difficulty in crisp, clear speech.
