Quiz: Single Tooth Implants

There are, as you may have noticed as you investigate your options, many solutions that include the use of dental implants. As you’ve learned, implants are the part of the prosthetic for replacing teeth that replace your roots. Now, if you began at the beginning, you will find yourself becoming familiar with single tooth implants. Let’s see how you’re doing.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: A single tooth implant is one that includes one implant post. To restore the post, we use a beautiful dental crown to complete the process.
  2. True or False: If you wish to replace many teeth, you have the option of replacing each one with single implants. Or, you can replace them with other options (like implant-supported dentures).
  3. True or False: Replacing each individual tooth with single implants is generally going to require the greatest investment. However, it will also offer you the closest solution for replicating your original, natural tooth and its roots.

Quiz Answers
