Missing several anterior teeth

In situations where various anterior teeth are missing, a fixed implant-supported bridge is the most suitable treatment option, with excellent functional and aesthetic results.

The use of dental implants significantly reduces the bone re-absorption associated with missing teeth, which, in this specific case, would result in the loss of support for the lips and an appearance of premature aging.

In such situations other treatment options can also be considered, namely:

CERAMIC FIXED BRIDGE

This is a good aesthetic and functional solution. However, this solution cannot be used in cases where many teeth have been lost, or when the adjacent teeth do not provide sufficient support.

REMOVABLE PROSTHESIS

This is a simpler and more economical solution to rehabilitate the gap left by the missing teeth. However, it does present many disadvantages as compared to fixed rehabilitation. Amongst others, it implies the use of unaesthetic metallic hooks. Removable prostheses are more voluminous and lead to changes at the level of speech and mastication.
