Frequently Asked Questions

What are Single Tooth Implants & Bridges?

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

  • Natural appearance

  • Solid, natural chewing

  • Attached securely and permanently

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

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

How it Works

A dental implant is a titanium screw that 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 serves as the foundation. It is placed in the jaw and acts as the anchor.

E

Abutment | This portion connects the titanium post and crown

E

Crown | This is the visible portion in the mouth. This could also be an implant bridge over multiple implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It depends. As every case is unique, our doctor will need to see you for a consultation to determine the best course of treatment for you.

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

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

How much do dental implants cost?

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Most patients are good candidates for dental implants, even those who've been told they weren't previously. Call our office to schedule your consultation and let's see what we can do to get you smiling again.

What kind of after care will I need to perform with my dental implant(s)?

Take care of them like natural teeth:

  • Floss and brush twice daily.
  • Get professional cleanings 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) won't 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 much time should I take off work for recovery after my procedure?

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

What is the process to get a dental implant?

Our process is very straight forward. The implant is placed into your jawbone and is left alone to integrate for 4-6 months. Afterward, we take impressions and have your tooth fabricated. If bone grafting is required, 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 use general anesthesia, however, we do provide both oral & IV conscious sedatives. To learn more about these options click here. This medicine will help relax you and typically makes it so you won't remember your procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have a driver to and from for your procedure, due to 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?

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

A classic home remedy that still works really well to encourage clotting and stop bleeding is to use tea bags. Get a standard tea bag, get it damp, squeeze out the extra water, place it on your 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 get saturated with blood. The process can be repeated as many times as needed.

Will there be pain after the procedure?

While your experience may vary, you can expect mild discomfort and possible swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the following day for their follow-up exam reporting very little discomfort. All patients are prescribed pain medication to help reduce any discomfort.

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

Our practice does not currently offer this type of implant. While titanium dental implants have been used 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 contribute to failure:

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

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