Abstract

The replacement and restoration of missing single teeth with dental implants are routine procedures. However, because of the relatively short clinical history of this procedure in dentistry, custom-tailored protocols for this procedure do not exist. This article will outline the various surgical and restorative steps involved in the treatment planning, fabrication, and delivery of single-implant restoration, and will critically analyze the existing clinical concepts and provide recommendations based on a contemporary approach. As data for and experience with this procedure increase the same general guidelines for all types of implant restorations may not apply. Emphasis will be placed on differentiating between the various types of single-implant restorations, comparing and contrasting the differences between the different types of single-implant restorations, and revising some of the existing concepts of this treatment modality.
