Missing teeth can be due to extractions following tooth shifting, a broken tooth or infections.
Dental arches are similar to architectural arches: if you remove one stone, the roof collapses!
If one tooth disappears, the neighbouring teeth are not contained anymore, so they start moving, creating spaces where bacteria settle, creating cavities,pariodontal diseases and teeth shifting.
With time, these neighbouring teeth will also fall off if the missing teeth is not replaced.
Therefore missing teeth MUST be replaced as soon as possible. The associated bone loss can create an unbalance. This unbalance in turn creates anormal tensions and loosening on the face and neck muscles. This can explain gradual appearance of facial and cervical pains. It also explains why toothless people seem to age more quickly than others.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium. They are surgically implanted in your jaw to replace natural tooth roots and serve as anchors for crowns, bridges or complete dentures.
Different types of implant-supported prostheses
● Crown: the crown is cemented to the implant.
● Partial or complete fixed dentures: the implants take the place of the roots of the teeth; a partial denture may be screwed in or cemented, while a complete denture is screwed in.
● Partial or complete removable denture: the denture is attached in different ways to a bar which is screwed onto the implants.
Distributed so as to preserve the nerves that connect the gum to the lips, implants absorb 100% of the pressure from chewing and transfer these forces to the jawbone, which will cease therefore to atrophy. Facial structure is restored and the person has a dentition as aesthetic and functional than the one nature had once provided.

In dental surgery, there are 4 types of transplants:
• Gingival graft
• Sinus floor augmentation
• Ramus bone graft
• Mandibular symphisis graft
The PRF technique (Protein rich in fiber) consists of collecting fibrins that will be used at the end of treatment to create a dressing. This technique is based on a process self-repair of the human body.
It is a natural, biological and biocompatible healing method that allows you faster healing. This method avoids post-operative problems such as pain, infections and inflammation.
