Frequently Asked Questions

What are Single Tooth Implants & Bridges?

Single tooth implants and bridges are an excellent way to replace broken or missing teeth in a localized area.

  • Look natural

  • Solid, natural chewing

  • Permanent and secure attachment

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

  • No negative effect on nearby teeth often seen with other options (bridges).

How it Works

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

There are 3 parts to a dental implant:

E

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

E

Abutment | This piece joins the titanium post to the crown

E

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Will 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 determine the best course of 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 crowns or bridges on implants that have just been placed. The reason for this is that 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 patients are candidates for dental implants, even those who've 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 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 prosthetic teeth look like?

In your 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?

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

What is the process to get an implant?

Our process is very straight forward. The implant is placed in your jawbone and is left alone to integrate for 4-6 months. After this, we take impressions and have the new 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?

Our office does not currently use general anesthesia, we do, however, provide both oral & IV conscious sedation. Click here to learn more about your options. The medicine will help to relax you and typically makes it so you don’t even remember the procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can fill it at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have a driver to and from for this procedure, because of 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 stopped before you leave the office, however, expect to have some slight bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 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 a lot of blood. If heavy bleeding continues, please call the office.

A home remedy which still works quite well to help clotting and stop bleeding is to use tea bags. 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 get saturated with blood. The process can be repeated as many times as you need.

Can I expect a lot of pain after the surgery?

While your experience may vary, you should expect some discomfort and some swelling afterwards. Many patients return the following day for their follow-up appointment reporting minimal discomfort. All patients are prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort.

Is this procedure offered 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 dentistry, so we can't be certain what their viability 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 dental 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 integrate into the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

If your implant fails within the first year, our doctor will replace it at no charge to you.
