Frequently Asked Questions

What are Single Tooth Implants & Bridges?

Single tooth implants and bridges are the best way to repair broken or missing teeth in a localized area.

  • Look natural

  • Solid, natural chewing

  • Permanent and secure attachment

  • Substantially decreases bone loss after removal of a natural tooth or multiple teeth

  • No negative impact on neighboring teeth like with other options (bridges).

How Single Dental Implants Work

A dental implant is a titanium screw which functions as the foundation to replace a tooth or teeth.

There are 3 components of a dental implant:

E

Implant post (or body) | This is the foundation. It is inserted in the jaw bone and serves as the anchor.

E

Abutment | This piece connects the titanium post to the crown

E

Crown | This is the visible part in your smile. Crowns can also be an implant bridge attached to multiple implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a dental implant for each of my missing teeth?

It depends. Since every case is unique, our doctor will need to see you for a consultation to figure out the appropriate treatment for you.

Can you put a temporary crown or bridge on the implant the same day it’s placed?

Unfortunately not at this time, we do not place temporary bridges or crowns on implants which have just been placed. This is because we want as little force as possible placed on the implants while waiting for them to fuse with the jawbone.

How much do dental implants cost?

Am I eligible for dental implants?

Most people are good candidates for dental implants, even those who have been told they were not in the past. Call our office to schedule your free exam and let's see what we can do to get you smiling again.

What kind of after care will my dental implant(s) need?

Take care of them like natural teeth:

  • Floss and brush twice a day.
  • Get cleanings regularly at intervals recommended by your dentist.

What do prosthetic teeth look like?

In the mouth, they look almost exactly like a natural tooth. The implant body (the screw) will not be visible in your mouth. It is under the gums in your bone.

Will it function and feel like a natural tooth?

Yes! It will feel different from a natural tooth but will function the same.

How long should I take off work to recover after my procedure?

Many patients are able to return to work either the same day or the following day. Certain cases could require more time off from work.

What is the process for getting an implant?

The process is very straight forward. Your implant is placed into the jawbone and is left alone to integrate for 4-6 months. Afterward, we take impressions and have the new tooth fabricated. If bone grafting is required, this may increase treatment time.

Is my implant removable?

No, once your implant is completed, you will not be able to remove it.

Can I be put to sleep for the procedure?

We do not currently use general anesthesia, we do, however, provide both oral & IV conscious sedatives. To learn more about these options click here. The medicine will provide relaxation and often makes it so you don’t remember the procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you to and from for this procedure, due to the sedation medication. You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

How long can I expect to bleed after the procedure?

Most of the bleeding will have ceased before you leave our office, however, expect to have some slight bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 days after the procedure. Additionally, you can expect to notice increased salivation when we first put your denture(s) in. When this increased saliva mixes with a small amount blood, it can look like much more. If heavy bleeding continues, please call our office.

A home remedy that still works quite well to encourage clotting and stop bleeding is the use of tea bags. Just get a regular tea bag, get it damp, squeeze out the excess water, place it on the extraction site (or sites), and the bags will help you clot. Multiple tea bags can be used if needed. Replace the tea bags if they become saturated with blood. This process can be repeated as many times as needed.

Will there be pain after the surgery?

While experiences will vary some, you should expect mild discomfort and possibly swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the following day for their post op exam reporting minimal soreness. All patients are prescribed pain medication to help reduce any discomfort.

Do you offer this procedure with zirconia (non-metal) implants?

We do not currently offer this type of implant. While titanium dental implants have been around for decades with a long track record of success, zirconia implants are very new to the market, so we can't be certain what their success will be long-term. We want the most successful, most predictable long-term results for our patients, and for these reasons, we do not use zirconia implants at this time.

Can implants fail?

While titanium implants do have a 95+% rate of success, yes, they can still fail. Some of the things that can cause them to fail:

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes

If your implant fails during the first year, our dentist will replace it for free.
