What are the causes of edentulism?

Edentulism can be caused by several natural or caused factors, including:

  • Gum disease – when poor oral hygiene leads to the development of conditions that cause teeth to rot and fall out.

  • Accidents – harsh impacts to the face and/or mouth knock the teeth out of place in the mouth.

  • Natural edentulism – when someone is born without teeth through no fault of their own.

WHEN A PATIENT IS MISSING ALL OR MOST OF HIS OR HER TEETH, THE SOLUTIONS ARE:-

  • Complete removable dentures
  • Fixed implants supported crowns and bridges (usually 6-10 implants in each jaw)
  • Fixed implants supported dentures (usually 4-6 implants in each jaw)
  • All on 4 implants (fixed dentures on 4 implants in each jaw)
  • Removable over-dentures on implants (2-4 implants in each jaw)
In the case on the above right a man in his 40’s had lost nearly all his teeth as a young man having a terrible impact on his self-confidence and quality of life. Imagine having to wear dentures since your twenties!
