Abstract: With the rise in popularity of dental implants to replace missing teeth, there are also increasing concerns surrounding complications. Within the plethora of complications and associated aetiologies, occlusion is possibly the least understood. The biomechanical principles shown in this article can provide some suggestions on occlusal schemes for single implants.

Clinical relevance: By understanding occlusal considerations for single implant crowns, the risk of complications can be minimized.
