Demystifying Single-Tooth Implant Placement and Restoration

By Ken Hebel, DDS

Commercial Supporter: Nobel Biocare

Many general dentists have considered dental implant treatment to be beyond the capacity of their private practices. However, by understanding how to properly assess available bone quantity, quality, and space; select the most appropriate implant; and identify the most suitable restorative components (cement- or screw-retained restoration), general dentists can provide patients with implant treatments that demonstrate a precise location along with an intimate fit and connection among the implant, abutment, and restoration. This article illustrates these concepts and demonstrates their application in the treatment of a female patient missing a central incisor.


  • Explain how to determine both the ideal implant width and length.

  • Describe how an osteotomy is performed.

  • Identify the components required for an implant-supported restoration.
