Tooth loss

Adults should always seek to restore the occlusion that may change over the years, mainly due to wear and tear during chewing and also due to the frequent loss of dental elements among adults.

We are often faced with the loss of some dental elements in the adult population.

It is a slow development process, which can cause many problems, such as:

- movement of teeth in the direction of space (of the missing tooth);
- difficulty chewing;
- muscle aches;
- TMJ problems (temporomandibular joint);
- occlusion imbalance;
- unwanted occlusal contacts between teeth.

Dental extrusion

The loss (extraction) of a tooth can seriously damage the patient's occlusion.

The ideal is that the loss does not occur, using devices to maintain the space, however, faced with the problem, mechanical conducts that recover the space are necessary.

We are often faced with the loss of dental elements among adults, which can cause serious damage to the patient's occlusion. The teeth in the affected region tend to seek contact with their antagonist, but as it was extracted, a migration to the extraction space occurs, causing deformities in the occlusion.

Dental Intrusion

In the presence of dental extrusion it will not be possible to restore the occlusion because we do not have enough space to install an implant.

herefore, it is very frequent for adult patients to seek orthodontic correction, in order to 'intrude' (relocation movement) of the tooth towards the dental alveolus.

After moving the tooth, the patient can be referred to rehabilitation and start installing the implant and re-establishing the harmony and health of the smile.

Molar verticalization

Loss of space in the posterior region is usually accompanied by dental angulations.

It's important that the orthodontic correction help to restore the patient's occlusion and oral health.

When tooth loss happens, the tooth adjacent to the space starts a migration in an attempt to adjust the problem, seeking contact with the tooth closest to the space, causing an inadequate tooth angulation, reducing the space between the teeth.

If this dental malposition is not treated, the situation can worsen over time, hence the need to verticalize the migrated tooth, returning to its original position so that it continues to receive the forces of chewing in the correct direction, always seeking the restoration of occlusion.
