Dental implantology makes it possible to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants replace the root of the tooth, buried in the jawbone, to which the dentist will attach a porcelain crown. In this way, the entire tooth is reconstructed.
Depending on the type of edentulism, the dentist will proceed with a specific technique (crown, bridge, prosthesis). In all cases, the dentist will preserve the neighbouring teeth.
- A single edentulous tooth: A single tooth is missing between two healthy teeth.
- Interdental: Several teeth are missing between two healthy teeth.
- Posterior edentulous: The missing teeth are located at the back of the lower or upper jaw.
- Total toothlessness: All teeth are missing.
Dental implants are particularly well suited to avoid all the inconveniences associated with dentures.
