For years, patients with missing teeth were practically left with no recourse but to accept the limitations of a fixed partial denture. The primary reasons for choosing the fixed partial denture option are its clinical ease and reduced treatment time.
Today a viable treatment option in replacing a single missing tooth is a single tooth implant, rather than preparing adjacent teeth and joining
them together with a prosthesis.
The advantages of single tooth implants over fixed partial dentures are:
1. High success rate (better than 97%) over a longer time period (10 years)
2. Lower risk of endodontic problems on adjacent teeth
3. Improved oral hygiene
4. Decreased abutment tooth loss due to caries
5. Bone preservation
