Frequently Asked Questions

What are Single Tooth Implants & Bridges?

Single tooth implants and bridges are a great way to repair damaged or missing teeth in a localized area.

  • Natural appearance

  • Solid, natural chewing

  • Permanent and secure attachment

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

  • Zero negative effect on nearby teeth like with other options (bridges).

How it Works

A dental implant is a titanium screw which acts as the base to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

There are 3 components of a dental implant:

E

Implant post (or body) | This is the foundation. The post is placed 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 portion in the mouth. Crowns can also be an implant bridge over multiple dental implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It depends. Since each case is unique, we'll need to see you for a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment for you.

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

At this time, we do not place temporary crowns or bridges on implants that have just been placed. The reason for this is that we want as little force being placed on the implants as possible while we wait for them to integrate with the jawbone.

How much do dental implants cost?

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Most patients are candidates for dental implants, even those who've been told they weren't previously. Call our office to schedule your free exam and let's see what we can do to help.

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 professional cleanings at intervals recommended by your dentist.

What do implant teeth look like?

In the mouth, they look almost identical to a natural tooth. The implant body (the screw) will not be visible in the 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 for recovery after the procedure?

Many patients can return to work either the same day or the following day. Some cases could require more time off from work.

What is the process for getting an implant?

The process is very straight forward. The implant is placed in the jawbone and is left alone to fuse for 4-6 months. Afterward, we take impressions and have the new tooth fabricated. If bone grafting is needed, this can 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 put patients to sleep, we do, however, provide both oral & IV conscious sedatives. To learn more about your options click here. The medication will help relax you and often makes it so you don’t even remember the procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can fill it at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you both ways for this procedure, because of the sedation medication. You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

How long will I bleed after the procedure?

Significant bleeding will have ceased before you leave our office, however, expect to have a bit of bleeding (oozing) for one to three days after the procedure. Additionally, you will most likely 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 does not stop, please call our office.

A home remedy that still works quite well to help clotting and stop bleeding is the use of tea bags. Just get a standard tea bag, dampen it, squeeze out the excess water, place it on the extraction site (or sites), and the tea 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 you need.

Can I expect a lot of pain after the surgery?

Though your experience may vary, you should expect some discomfort and slight swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the following day for their follow-up examination reporting very little discomfort. All patients are prescribed medication for pain to help alleviate any discomfort.

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

We do not currently offer this type of implant. While titanium implants have been around for decades with a long track record of success, zirconia implants are very new to the market, so we do not know what their viability will be long-term. We want the most successful, and 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+% success rate, yes, they can still fail. Some of the things which can contribute to failure:

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

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