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 decreases bone loss after extraction of a natural tooth or teeth

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

How it Works

A dental implant is a titanium screw that functions as the foundation 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 and serves as the anchor.

E

Abutment | This portion joins the implant post to the crown

E

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

Our pricing is the most affordable in Philadelphia and also offers the best final result.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a dental implant for each of my missing teeth?

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

Can I get a temporary crown or bridge on the 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. The reason for this is that we want as little force as possible placed on the implants while waiting 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 previously. Call us to schedule your free exam 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 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 long should I take off work to recover after my procedure?

Many patients are able to return to work either the same day or the next day. Some 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 new 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 to sleep for the procedure?

Our office does 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 someone driving you both ways for this procedure, because of the oral sedation pill(s). You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

How long will I bleed after the procedure?

Significant 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.

An old home remedy that still works quite well to encourage clotting and stop bleeding is to use tea bags. Just get a standard tea bag, get it damp, squeeze out the excess water, place it on your 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 become saturated with blood. The process can be repeated as many times as you need.

Can I expect pain after the surgery?

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

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

Our practice does not currently offer 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 do not know 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 implants fail?

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

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

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