Frequently Asked Questions

What are Single Tooth Implants & Bridges?

Single tooth implants and bridges are a great way to replace damaged or missing teeth in a localized area.

  • Look natural

  • Solid, natural chewing

  • Attached securely and permanently

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

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

How Single Dental Implants Work

A dental implant is a titanium screw that acts as the base to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

There are 3 parts to a dental implant:

E

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

Cost of Single Tooth Implants and Bridges

E

This pricing is the most affordable in Indiana while also providing the best final result. We are able to accomplish this by having an extensively trained dentist who does the entire procedure from beginning to end along with an experienced staff dental lab technician. They have performed dental implants from start to finish together more times than they can count.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do 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 best course of treatment for you.

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

Unfortunately not at this time, we do not place temporary bridges or crowns 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 the 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 have been told they were not in the past. Call us to schedule your consultation and let's see what we can do to help.

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 cleanings regularly at intervals recommended by your dentist.

What do implant teeth look like?

In the mouth, they look almost exactly like 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 long should I take off work for recovery 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 a dental implant?

The process is very straight forward. The implant is placed in your jawbone and is left alone to integrate for up to six 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 under for the procedure?

We do not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer oral conscious sedation. This medication will help to relax you and often makes it so you don’t even 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 for this procedure, someone who can drive you after you have taken your 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 our office, however, expect to have a bit of bleeding (oozing) for one to three days after the procedure. Additionally, you can expect to 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 classic home remedy which still works quite well to encourage clotting and reduce bleeding is to use tea bags. Just get a standard tea bag, dampen it, squeeze out the excess water, place it on your 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 you need.

Can I expect a lot of pain after the surgery?

While your experience may vary some, most patients should expect some discomfort and possible swelling afterwards. Many patients return the following day for their post op appointment reporting very little discomfort. All patients are prescribed medication for pain to help reduce any discomfort.

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

We do not currently offer 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 viability 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 dental implants do have a 95+% success rate, yes, they can still fail. Some of the things which may contribute to failure:

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

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