The single tooth implant restoration consists of three parts. Namely, the implant post which replaces the tooth root, the abutment which will support the crown and the prosthetic crown itself. The crown is either cemented onto the abutment or held in place with a screw. The parts of the single tooth implant are biocompatible to the tissues of the mouth. Therefore, they do not cause any side effects in the oral cavity.
A single tooth implant with a crown is a recommended dental treatment option which ensures that the tooth adjacent to the edentulous area is not affected. Most of the other restorative and prosthesis procedures require the reduction of the same tooth or adjacent teeth. In this way, it is a conservative dental treatment of preventing reduction of the surrounding structures and achieving the desired treatment results. Thus, single tooth implants prove to be of great benefit for individuals who are seeking solutions for the missing teeth.
