Frequently Asked Questions

What are Single Tooth Implants & Bridges?

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

  • Natural appearance

  • Solid, natural chewing

  • Permanent and secure attachment

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

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

How Single Dental Implants Work

A dental implant is a titanium screw which acts 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 inserted in the jaw bone and acts as the anchor.

E

Abutment | This piece connects the implant post and crown

E

Crown | This is the visible part in your smile. Crowns can also be an implant bridge attached to multiple implants.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It depends. Since every 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 crown or bridge on my 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. This is because we want as little force as possible placed on the implants while waiting for them to integrate with the jawbone.

How much do dental implants cost?

Am I eligible 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 free exam and let's see what we can do to get you smiling again.

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 regular cleanings at intervals recommended by your dentist.

What do prosthetic teeth look like?

In your mouth, they look almost exactly like 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 could require more time off from work.

What is the process for getting an implant?

Our process is very straight forward. The implant is placed in the jawbone and is left alone to fuse for 4-6 months. Afterward, 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?

Our office does not currently use general anesthesia, however, we do offer both oral & IV conscious sedatives. To learn more about these options click here. This medicine will help relax you and typically makes it so you don’t remember the procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can fill it at your local pharmacy. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you to and from 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?

Most of the bleeding will have stopped before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have some slight bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 days after the procedure. Also, 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 does not stop, please call the office.

A home remedy that still works really well to encourage clotting and stop bleeding is the use of 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 heal. 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.

 

Will there be pain after the procedure?

Though experiences will vary, you can expect some discomfort and possibly swelling after your procedure. Many patients come in the following day for their post op exam reporting very little pain. You will be prescribed pain medication to help reduce any discomfort.

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

Our practice does not currently provide 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 the market, 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 dental implants fail?

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

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

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