Implant-supported crown or implant-supported fixed bridge?
The implant-supported crown is the most natural feeling and functioning option. It does not rely on any other tooth to stay in the mouth. The implant is placed in the bone in the location of the missing tooth. After bone has integrated around the implant, a post and a crown are placed on the implant. The future of the crown/implant is not dependent on the surrounding teeth. The teeth on each side of the missing space do not need to be altered with a drill for support purposes. The implant/crown is not susceptible to decay and only minimally susceptible to periodontal disease, and it can be flossed like a natural tooth.
