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

  • Substantially decreases bone loss after extraction of a natural tooth or teeth

  • Zero negative impact on neighboring teeth often seen with other options (bridges).

How Single Dental Implants Work

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

There are 3 components of a dental implant:

E

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

E

Abutment | This piece joins the titanium post to the crown

E

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

Our pricing is the most affordable in Peachtree and also provides the best end result. We can accomplish this by having an extensively trained dentist who performs the entire procedure from beginning to end along with a highly trained in-house dental lab technician. They have performed dental implants from beginning to end together many, many times.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It depends. Since each case is unique, we'll need to see you for a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment for you.

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

Unfortunately not at this time, we do not place temporary crowns or bridges on implants which have just been placed. The reason for this is that we want as little force as possible placed on the implants 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 have 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?

Take care of them like natural teeth:

  • Floss and brush twice daily.
  • Get professional cleanings 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 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 for recovery after the procedure?

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

What is the process to get a dental implant?

Our 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 replacement tooth fabricated. If bone grafting is needed, 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 under for the procedure?

Our office does not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer both IV and oral conscious sedation. Click here to learn more about your options. The medicine will provide relaxation and typically makes it so you don’t 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 both ways for your 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?

Significant bleeding will have ceased before you leave our clinic, however, expect to have some slight bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 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 much more. If heavy bleeding continues, please call our office.

A classic home remedy which still works quite well to encourage clotting and reduce 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 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.

Can I expect a lot of pain after the procedure?

While experiences will vary, you should expect mild soreness and possibly swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the next day for their follow-up examination reporting minimal soreness. You will be prescribed medication for pain to help reduce any discomfort.

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

We do not currently use 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 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?

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

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

If an implant fails during the first year, your dentist will replace it for free.

Dental Implant Timeline

The process typically takes 5-6 months from start to finish.

1

2

Uncover implants and allow gums to form to correct shape for 2 weeks.

3

Take impressions and send off to outside lab for fabrication of abutment and crown. This normally takes 3-4 weeks.
