Synopsis:
Seventy percent of the population is missing one or more teeth. The traditional method to replace a tooth is a fixed partial denture. As a consequence of this device, the adjacent teeth decay almost 25% of the time. The pontic acts as a plaque trap and often causes decay at the crown margin next to the pontic. In addition, the abutment teeth of a fixed partial denture require endodontics for the decay or trauma of preparing the tooth almost 15% of the time. The endodontic treated tooth fails 10% of the time. In addition, the tooth may fracture as a result of the endodontic treatment. As a result of the decay or endodontics complications the abutment tooth is lost almost 30% of the time within 10 to 15 years. A dental implant to replace a missing tooth does not have to crown additional teeth and splint them together. The implant does not decay or need endodontic therapy. As a result, the implant and adjacent teeth last longer and are more predictable than traditional fixed prostheses.

This program explains to the dental team the consequences of preparing and having crowns on adjacent teeth splinted together to replace missing teeth. The advantages of implants to replace the teeth are presented in a format for doctors, staff and patients to understand the benefits of implant dentistry.
