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.

  • Look natural

  • Solid, natural chewing

  • Permanent and secure attachment

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

  • 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 base 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 inserted in the jaw bone and functions as the anchor.

E

Abutment | This portion joins the implant post to the crown

E

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

This pricing is the best in Sacramento and also provides the best end result. We can achieve this by having a highly trained dentist who does the complete procedure from start to finish along with an experienced staff dental lab technician. They have performed this procedure from start to finish together many, many times.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

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

Can you put a temporary crown or bridge 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. This is because we want as little force being placed on the implants as possible while waiting for them to integrate with your jawbone.

How much do dental implants cost?

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Most people are good candidates for dental implants, even those who've been told they weren't in the past. Call our office 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 a day.
  • Get regular cleanings at intervals recommended by your dentist.

What do implant teeth look like?

In the mouth, they look almost identical to a natural tooth. The implant body (the screw) will not 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?

Most patients can return to work either the same day or the following day. Some cases may 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 into your jawbone and is left alone to integrate for 4-6 months. Afterward, we take impressions and have the new 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?

Our office does not currently use general anesthesia, however, we do offer both IV and oral conscious sedation. Click here to learn more about the options. This medicine will provide relaxation and often makes it so you won't even 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 your procedure, due to the sedation medication. 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 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 little blood, it can look like a lot of blood. If heavy bleeding continues, please call the office.

A home remedy that still works really well to encourage clotting and reduce bleeding is to use tea bags. Just get a standard tea bag, get it damp, 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. The process can be repeated as many times as needed.

Can I expect a lot of pain after the procedure?

Though experiences will vary, you can expect some discomfort and possibly swelling afterwards. Many patients come in the following day for their post op appointment reporting minimal pain. You will be prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort.

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

Our practice does not currently use this type of implant. While titanium dental 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, and predictable long-term results for our patients, and for these reasons, we do not use zirconia implants at this time.

Can implants fail?

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

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

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