Caries, periodontics and trauma are the main causes of loss of one or more teeth. When the total dentition is touched, the alveolar bone tends to atrophy.
There are then some modifications in the physiognomy (thinning of the lips, appearance of wrinkles around the mouth, etc.)
To remedy this problem, implants are a solution of choice. In addition, removable prostheses on implants have many advantages:
- Preservation of the bone mass of the jaw
- Durability and comfort superior to the removable prosthesis
- Increased stability, which promotes better chewing of food
- Simplified cleaning due to the fact that we can remove the prosthesis
