Frequently Asked Questions

What are Single Tooth Implants & Bridges?

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

  • Look natural

  • Solid, natural chewing

  • Attached securely and permanently

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

  • No negative impact on neighboring teeth like with other options (bridges).

How Single Dental Implants Work

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

There are 3 parts to a dental implant:

E

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

E

Abutment | This portion joins the titanium post to the crown

E

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

Our pricing is the most affordable in Sarasota while also offering the best end result.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It depends. As every case is unique, our doctor will need to see you for an exam to determine the best course of 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 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 your jawbone.

How much do dental implants cost?

Am I eligible for dental implants?

Most patients are candidates for dental implants, even those who have been told they were not previously. Call our office to schedule your free exam 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 a day.
  • Get cleanings regularly at intervals recommended by your dentist.

What do prosthetic teeth look like?

In your 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 my procedure?

Most patients can 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?

The process is very straight forward. Your implant is placed into your jawbone and is left alone to integrate for up to six 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 my 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. This medication will help to relax you and typically makes it so you won't remember the procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your local pharmacy. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you to and from 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 stopped before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have a bit of bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 days after the procedure. In addition, 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 much more. If heavy bleeding continues, please call our office.

An old home remedy which still works really well to encourage clotting and stop bleeding is to use tea bags. Just get a standard tea bag, get it damp, squeeze out the extra water, place it on the extraction site (or sites), and the tea 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 procedure?

While your experience may vary, you can expect mild soreness and some swelling afterwards. Many patients come in the following day for their follow-up examination reporting minimal pain. You will be prescribed medication for pain to help alleviate any discomfort.

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

Our practice does not currently provide 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 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 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 cause them to fail:

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes

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