Single implant and crown versus fixed partial denture: A cost-benefit, patient-centred analysis
Goodacre, Charles J. / Naylor, W. Patrick
Single implants and their crowns have high survival rates that exceed the survival rates for fixed partial dentures on teeth and most but not all publications have determined single implants are more cost-effective than 3-unit fixed partial dentures. Both initial root canal treatment and retreatment are more cost-effective than tooth extraction and rehabilitation with a single implant and crown.
