Treatment Planning in Patients with Congenital Missing Teeth

Simon Storgård Jensen

This lecture is a brief but comprehensive discussion of the treatment alternatives for congenitally missing teeth, a condition affecting 7% to 8% of the population. The importance of a multidisciplinary approach and treatment planning at an early stage is stressed throughout the presentation. Key factors to be evaluated when deciding whether the space should be closed or kept open for prosthetic replacement are outlined. Dental implants are the most frequently chosen treatment when tooth replacement is desired. Considerations for implant placement are detailed, including space requirements, need for local bone augmentation, and timing of implant placement.

At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…

  • describe treatment alternatives for patients with congenitally missing teeth
  • explain why and when orthodontic closure is the treatment of choice
  • discuss minimum space requirements for implant placement
  • describe preferred methods of ensuring arrested body growth before implant placement
