Single Tooth Implants

A dental implant is a small, screw-like post to replace a missing tooth’s root. A complete dental implant has three components combined to mimic the structure of a natural tooth: a Root Form, Abutment, and Dental Crown.

A dental implant outlasts and outperforms a removable partial denture or bridge. Also, unlike a dental bridge or partial denture that attaches to adjacent teeth for support, your jawbone supports a dental implant. After the root form fuses with your bone, your replacement tooth will look, feel, and function naturally.

You can get a dental implant to replace each missing tooth or multiple implants to support a dental bridge or denture.

Single Tooth Implants Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental implants painful?

We use local anesthesia to numb your mouth and prevent you from feeling pain. Also, dental sedation keeps you deeply relaxed and dulls pain sensitivity. After your procedure, we will explain which medications you can take to limit your discomfort. Taking the medicine as prescribed will smooth your recovery.

Can everyone get a dental implant?

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant. However, most people qualify even if they have a chronic condition, such as diabetes, if it is well-managed. One of our dentists will evaluate your oral and overall health to determine which treatment options are best for your long-term well-being.

Does insurance cover dental implants?

Some dental insurance plans pay a percentage of the cost of dental implants, but you are responsible for the rest. If you have dental insurance, contact the insurance company to ask if your plan provides dental implant benefits.

How do you care for a dental implant?

Care for a dental implant like a natural tooth by brushing twice daily and flossing daily. Regular dental exams and cleanings ensure your implant and surrounding bone and gums are healthy.

How much does a dental implant cost?

The cost of a dental implant depends on several factors, including the following:
• Your oral health
• Your bone health and quality
• Implant type
• Whether you need other procedures, such as bone or gum grafting

After your consultation, we will give you a treatment estimate.

What can you eat with new dental implants?

After dental implant surgery, you can eat soft food only to prevent implant displacement. We will give you a list of foods to eat and avoid. Chewing away from the implant sites helps your jawbone fuse with them, giving your dental crown a firm foundation.

Will I need a bone graft for dental implants?

You may need a bone graft for dental implants if you lack enough healthy bone to support them. After reviewing your 3D CT scan, one of our dentists will explain whether you need a bone graft for long-term dental implant success.
