Updated implant-retained restorative solutions in patients with hypodontia
Holst, Stefan / Geiselhöringer, Hans / Nkenke, Emeka / Blatz, Markus Bernhard / Holst, Alexandra Ioana
Hypodontia is often found during orthodontic screening and occurs with a prevalence of between 5% and 10%. One or more congenitally missing permanent teeth is a clinical finding that affects both male and female patients. Although maintaining deciduous teeth is an option in a few cases, the majority of patients with agenesis of teeth require extraction and orthodontic space closure or restorative treatment. Depending on the number and location of missing teeth, implant-supported fixed single-tooth restorations provide excellent long-term results. Choosing appropriate treatment techniques and materials will result in long-term clinical function, stability, and esthetic success.
