Tooth agenesis is the absence of one or more teeth in both deciduous and permanent dentition. This anomaly occurs during intrauterine life and is usually associated with other developmental anomalies. It is one of the most common anomalies in human beings, affecting about 25% of the population, with higher prevalence in females. The aim of this study was to perform a literature review on the multidisciplinary treatment between orthodontics and implant dentistry in cases of tooth agenesis. The affected patients require orthodontic treatment prior to implant installation because, in addition to aesthetic dissatisfaction, they also present with functional complications such as Class II and III malocclusions. This approach is still not widely used and studies are scarce, but it is the best when the goal is to restore aesthetics and function to the patient. An effective orthodontic treatment performed before installing an implant is of utmost importance to achieve good results at the end of treatment. The immediate load implants are the most indicated for these cases because they have several benefits and the number of surgical interventions is only one.
