Crown and bridge fabrication techniques for implant restorations may be similar to those for natural teeth. However the dentist must be acutely aware of the differences between implants and natural teeth in order to create a restoration that will be free from complications. There are three types of implant complications (cosmetic, functional, and hygienic) and they are often related to one another.
