What are Single Tooth Implants & Bridges?

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

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

How Single Dental Implants Work

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 serves as the foundation. The post is placed in the jaw and serves as the anchor.

E

Abutment | This piece joins the implant post to the crown

E

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

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It depends. Since every case is unique, we'll need to see you for an exam to determine the appropriate 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 crowns or bridges on implants which have just been placed. This is because we want as little force being placed on the implants as possible 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 previously. Call us to schedule your consultation and let's see what we can do to help.

What kind of after care will my dental implant(s) need?

Care for them like natural teeth:

  • Brush and floss 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 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 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 for getting an implant?

Our process is very straight forward. Your implant is placed in the jawbone and is left alone to integrate for 4-6 months. After this, we take impressions and have the replacement 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, we do, however, provide both oral & IV conscious sedatives. To learn more about these options click here. The medication will provide relaxation and often makes it so you don’t remember the 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 oral sedation pill(s). 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 ceased 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 does not stop, please call the office.

A home remedy which still works really well to help clotting and reduce bleeding is to use tea bags. Get a standard tea bag, dampen it, squeeze out the excess water, place it on the extraction site (or sites), and the bags 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.

Can I expect pain after the surgery?

While your experience may vary, most patients should expect mild soreness and possibly swelling after your procedure. Many patients come in the following day for their post op exam reporting minimal discomfort. All patients are prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort.

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

Our practice does not currently use this type of implant. While titanium dental implants have been around for decades with a long track record of success, zirconia implants are very new to dentistry, 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 offer zirconia implants at this time.

Can dental implants fail?

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

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes

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