Restoration of missing teeth with endosteal implants is nowadays a safe and predictable procedure. The long-term success of dental implants has considerably broadened the spectrum of treatment options following tooth loss, as demonstrated by 40 years of scientific research and practical experience in the field of implantology. Optimal functional and esthetic rehabilitation of a patient with single-tooth implants represents a particular challenge for the treatment team, requiring a clearly structured concept and efficient teamwork. The patient and the patient's wishes are of central importance; dentists, implantologists, prosthodontists, and dental laboratory technicians are involved in the treatment. Clear communication and a spectrum of procedures appropriate to the intervention and the patient situation are essential.
