Replacing Missing Teeth: Dental Implants and Their Alternatives
Tooth loss occurs as a result of many factors and can impact various aspects of a person’s life including esthetics, speech and nutrition. In this course, reasons for tooth loss will be discussed, as well as the different options to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are generally considered to be the ideal solution, however they are not always a viable option. Dental implants will be discussed in detail including a brief overview of their development, situations where they may be of benefit as well as potential complications and associated maintenance. Participants will leave well-informed about dental implants and have a good understanding of the alternatives that exist for replacing missing teeth.
