ABSTRACT:The goal of modern dentistry is to restore the patient to normal contour, function, comfort, esthetics, speech, and health, whether restoring a single tooth with caries or replacing several teeth. A treatment option to replace a single missing tooth is a single-tooth implant. The replacement of a single tooth in the anterior region is challenging because of the highly specific soft and hard tissue criteria, in addition to all other esthetic, phonetic, functional, and occlusal requirements. Since 1993, single-tooth implant survival has demonstrated that this procedure is the most predictable method of tooth replacement. 100% survival rates of single tooth implants has been reported. Anterior single-tooth replacement is often a challenge, regardless of the experience and skill of the dentist. This review article comprehensively summarizes the therapeutic situation “single-tooth restoration in the esthetic region” and provides the clinician with relevant information and state-of-the-art knowledge on both surgical and prosthetic procedures.
