One-Piece Implants

Implants that provide all or part of the prosthodontic platform are referred to as one-piece or tissue level implants. Typically one-piece implants have a transmucosal section that extends into the oral cavity with a fixed neck design and built-in emergence profile. This vertical offset offers advantages that promote stable bone levels. This Learning Pathway looks at the one-piece implant design in detail and offers examples of its use in different indications. It also compares and contrasts advantages and limitations of the one-piece implant design against the two-piece implant design.

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to:

  • describe the one-piece implant design and its variations
  • explain why one-piece implant designs promote stable bone levels
  • discuss indications, advantages and limitations of the one piece-implant design
