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

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

  • No negative impact to nearby teeth like with other options (bridges)

How it Works

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

There are 3 parts to a dental implant:

E

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

E

Abutment | This piece connects the implant post and crown

E

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

This pricing is the best in the area while also providing the best final result. We are able to achieve this by having a highly trained dentist who performs the entire procedure from start to finish along with a highly trained in-house dental lab technician. They have performed this procedure from start to finish together more times than they can count.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It depends. As each case is unique, we'll need to see you for an exam to figure out the appropriate treatment for you.

Can you put a temporary crown or bridge on my 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 we wait for them to integrate with your 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 were not in the past. Call us 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:

  • Brush and floss twice daily.
  • Get professional cleanings at intervals recommended by your dentist.

What do prosthetic teeth look like?

In the mouth, they look almost identical to a natural tooth. The implant body (the screw) won't 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 much time should I take off work to recover after the procedure?

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

What is the process to get a dental implant?

The process is very straight forward. The implant is placed in the jawbone and is left alone to fuse for 4-6 months. After this, 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, however, we do offer both oral & IV conscious sedatives. To learn more about these options click here. The medication will provide relaxation and often makes it so you won't remember your procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your local pharmacy. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you both ways for this 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 stopped before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have some slight bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 days after the procedure. Additionally, you might 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 does not stop, please call our office.

An old home remedy which 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 extra 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 procedure?

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

Is this procedure offered with zirconia (non-metal) implants?

Our practice does not currently provide 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 do not know 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 offer zirconia implants at this time.

Can dental implants fail?

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

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

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