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.

  • Natural appearance

  • Solid, natural chewing

  • Permanent and secure attachment

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

  • No negative effect to neighboring teeth like with other options (bridges).

How it Works

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

There are 3 parts to a dental implant:

E

Implant post (or body) | This is the foundation. The post is inserted in the jaw and acts as the anchor.

E

Abutment | This portion joins the implant post to the crown

E

Crown | This is the visible part in the mouth. This could also be an implant bridge across multiple dental implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need an implant for each of my missing teeth?

It depends. As each case is unique, our doctor will need to see you for an exam to determine the best course of treatment for you.

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

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 integrate with your jawbone.

How much do dental implants cost?

Am I eligible for dental implants?

Most people are candidates for dental implants, even those who've been told they were not previously. Call us 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)?

Care for them like natural teeth:

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

What do implant teeth look like?

In your mouth, they look almost identical to a natural tooth. The implant body (the screw) won't be visible in the mouth. It is under the gums in the 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 to recover after the procedure?

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

What is the process for getting an implant?

Our 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 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 put patients to sleep, however, we do offer oral conscious sedation. This medication will help relax you and often makes it so you won'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 a driver both ways 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?

Significant bleeding will have ceased before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have a bit of bleeding (oozing) for one to three days after the procedure. Also, 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 a lot of blood. If heavy bleeding does not stop, please call our office.

A classic home remedy that still works really well to encourage clotting and stop bleeding is to use tea bags. Just get a regular tea bag, dampen it, squeeze out the extra water, place it on your extraction site (or sites), and the tea will help you heal. 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 surgery?

While your experience may vary, most patients can expect mild soreness and slight swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the following day for their post op examination reporting minimal discomfort. You will be prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort.

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

Our practice does not currently provide this type of implant. While titanium implants have been used for decades with a long track record of success, zirconia implants are very new to dentistry, so we do not know what their success 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?

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

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes

If an implant fails during the first year, your doctor will replace it at no cost to you.
