Single Tooth Replacement
There is no better, long-lasting option to restoring a missing tooth than a dental implant fitted with a crown.
Traditional replacement of a single tooth using a dental implant is often completed over multiple visits:
Consultation and planning, including initial exam, imaging of your teeth, questions about your dental and medical history, and discussion of your treatment options.
Placement of the dental implant, a substitute for the missing natural tooth root, either with or without a built-in abutment (a connector placed on, or built into, the top of the implant) that will attach to the replacement tooth. A temporary tooth can be placed while the dental implant integrates with your natural bone to form a strong foundation for your replacement tooth. Most people return to work the next day. Placement of the abutment, if one wasn’t placed during the prior visit. Placement of a custom-made crown, or replacement tooth. See more at AAID-Implant

In case you wanted more reasons to consider dental implant therapy, check out this info:
There are many patients who present with the chief complaint of a single missing tooth. In the anterior region, single tooth loss is most commonly a result of a traumatic injury or it is a congenital anomaly. Single missing posterior teeth are usually caused by advanced caries or a failed endodontic procedure and occasionally by a congenital defect. There are several options available for the replacement of a single missing tooth.
A removable partial denture is one option for the replacement of a single missing tooth. However, most patients are not satisfied with this alternative due to the bulk of metal and acrylic and the unsightly clasps necessary to stabilize the prosthesis. While some may feel that a resin-bonded prosthesis (Maryland bridge) is a viable option, clinical experience has shown that these resin bonded pontics do not have a good long term track record if the teeth are not prepared aggressively enough for mechanical retention.
Hygiene accessibility becomes a major issue when comparing these two replacement options. When a single tooth dental implant restoration is fabricated, the patient can easily floss in the conventional fashion as with a natural tooth (Slide 3). Whereas with a 3-unit fixed partial denture, the patient will need to use either a proxybrush, floss threaders, or superfloss to gain access beneath the solder joint area for proper oral hygiene.
