Example Implant Bridge

An example of single tooth implant restorations, and an implant bridge.


Implant Crown vx Conventional Bridge

Implant Crown vs. Conventional Bridge

The Implant Crown vs Conventional Bridge diagram shows replacement of a single premolar tooth with both a conventional bridge, and single tooth implant.  When teeth on either side of a missing tooth are unrestored or have small fillings, a single tooth implant is the most conservative long term treatment option, which also allows flossing to be done similar to a natural tooth.
