Single-tooth implant restorations: a retrospective study.

Author information

HCF Dental Centre, Sydney, Australia.


Single-tooth implant restorations are a demanding clinical endeavor. Predictable results can be achieved when clinicians adhere to a recommended protocol for placement and reconstruction. As the demand to use implants to replace single missing teeth increased, so did the demand for superior esthetic outcome and immediate insertion and loading. The present study presents a 6-year audit of single-tooth implant restorations at Riyadh Dental Centre with a survival probability of 93.8% after a 5-year period. The recent trend of immediate insertion and loading results was also encouraging but still needs technical refinement as well as long-term follow-up review between different protocols.
