Comparison of Natural Tooth and Single Tooth Implant Replacement
The natural tooth and single tooth diagram show a comparison between a natural tooth restored with a dental crown (left), and a dental implant restored with a single tooth implant crown (right). When done correctly, both should be indistinguishable from a natural, unrestored tooth.
How Dental Implants Work
This dental implant diagram depicts the process of dental implant placement and restoration.
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.
