How it Works

A dental implant is a titanium screw that’s placed into your jawbone which serves as the foundation to replace a tooth or teeth.

There are 3 parts to a dental implant:

  • Implant post (or body) | This is the foundation. It is placed in the jaw and acts as an anchor.
  • Abutment | This piece connects the implant post and crown.
  • Crown | This is the visible portion that looks like a natural tooth. This could also be an implant bridge across multiple implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

Single Tooth Implants & Multi-Tooth Implant Bridges Gallatin, TN

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

The need for dental implants depends on several factors, including the number of missing teeth, their location, and the overall condition of your oral health. In some cases, you may require an implant for each missing tooth, while in other situations, alternative solutions may be available.

If you have multiple missing teeth in a row, you may not necessarily need an individual implant for each tooth. In some cases, a dental implant-supported bridge or a partial denture may be recommended. These options involve using fewer implants to support a bridge or denture that spans the gap left by multiple missing teeth.

Ultimately, it is best to consult with our dentist who can evaluate your specific situation. They will consider factors such as your oral health, bone density, and aesthetic goals to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you.

In some cases it’s possible to place a temporary crown or bridge on an implant on the same day it is placed. This immediate temporary restoration is known as a “same-day implant crown” or “immediate load implant.” However, it is important to note that not all implant cases are suitable for immediate loading.

The feasibility of placing a temporary crown or bridge on the implant immediately depends on various factors, including the quality and quantity of the available bone, the primary stability of the implant, and the overall condition of the surrounding soft tissues. Additionally, the location of the implant in the mouth may also influence the decision for immediate loading.

To determine if you are a candidate for immediate loading and temporary restoration, give us a call today! Our dentist will assess your specific situation, conduct a comprehensive examination, and consider various factors before deciding on the appropriate treatment approach.

At 386 Dental Studio, the price for a single tooth implant starts at $3,499 and the price for an implant bridge starts at $6,999.

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the location of the implant, the materials used, and any additional procedures required. Since each case is unique, it’s important to note that the final cost can only be determined after your consultation.

Determining your candidacy for dental implants requires a thorough evaluation by our dentist. They will consider various factors to determine if dental implants are suitable for you. Here are some general factors that are often considered:

  1. Sufficient bone density | Adequate bone in the jaw is necessary to support the dental implant. If you have experienced bone loss, bone grafting procedures may be required to build up the bone.
  2. Healthy gums | Healthy gums are essential for the success of dental implants. If you have gum disease, it will need to be treated before implant placement.
  3. Overall health | Your general health and any underlying medical conditions can impact your candidacy for dental implants. Certain medical conditions or medications may affect the healing process.
  4. Commitment to oral hygiene | Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial for the long-term success of dental implants. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential.

To determine if you are a candidate for dental implants, schedule a consultation with our dentist today. They will evaluate your oral health, review your medical history, and conduct any necessary diagnostic tests to determine the most appropriate treatment options for you.

Aftercare for dental implants is important to ensure their long-term success. Here are some key aspects of post-implant placement care:

  1. Oral hygiene | Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristle toothbrush and using a low-abrasive toothpaste. Floss daily to clean the areas around the implant carefully. You may also be advised to use an antimicrobial mouthwash to reduce bacteria.
  2. Regular dental visits | Schedule regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings. Your dentist will monitor the health of your implants, assess the surrounding tissues, and address any concerns. X-rays may be taken periodically to evaluate the implant’s stability and the condition of the bone.
  3. Avoid damaging habits | Avoid habits that can put excessive stress on the implants, such as biting or chewing on hard objects, using your teeth to open packages, or grinding/clenching your teeth. These habits can potentially damage the implant and surrounding structures.
  4. Quit smoking | If you smoke, it is advisable to quit or at least reduce smoking. Smoking can impair healing and increase the risk of implant failure.
  5. Healthy lifestyle | Maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise. Good nutrition supports overall oral health and aids in healing.
  6. Address concerns promptly | If you experience any issues with your dental implant, such as pain, swelling, loosening, or changes in bite, contact our office immediately. Early intervention can help prevent complications.

Each patient’s situation may have unique requirements, and specific aftercare instructions may vary. It’s crucial to follow the guidance provided by our dentist, as they will tailor the instructions to your specific needs. Regular communication with your dental professional is essential to ensure the long-term success and health of your dental implant(s).

Implant teeth are designed to closely resemble natural teeth in terms of appearance and function. The visible portion of the implant-supported tooth, known as the dental crown, is custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. Dental crowns are typically made from high-quality materials such as ceramic, porcelain, or a combination of materials that mimic the translucency and shine of natural teeth.

The crown is carefully crafted to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth, ensuring a natural and aesthetically pleasing result. It is individually designed to match the color, shape, and alignment of your adjacent teeth, creating a harmonious smile.

The implant itself is typically a small titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone. However, since the implant is positioned beneath the gum line and not visible, the focus of the aesthetic restoration is on the dental crown that is attached to the implant.

Implant teeth can provide a highly realistic appearance, offering a natural-looking solution for replacing missing teeth. The goal is to create a smile that is both functional and visually appealing, enhancing your overall dental aesthetics and restoring your confidence in your smile.

Yes, a dental implant is designed to function and feel like a natural tooth. Dental implants are considered one of the most successful and durable tooth replacement options available because they closely mimic the structure and function of natural teeth.

When a dental implant is placed in the jawbone, it fuses with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration. This provides a strong and stable foundation for the implant-supported crown or restoration.

The recovery time after a dental implant procedure can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the case, the number of implants placed, and individual healing rates. Typically, most people can expect a few days to a week of recovery time before returning to work or normal daily activities. However, it’s important to note that this is a general guideline, and our dentist will provide specific recommendations based on your unique situation.

No, implants are integrated in the bone. The design of an implant is similar to a drywall screw but with a special surface treatment optimized for bone healing. Once the implant is integrated it will not come out without some type of surgery.

Bleeding after a dental implant procedure is normal and expected. However, the duration and intensity of bleeding can vary from person to person and depends on factors such as the complexity of the procedure, individual healing ability, and adherence to post-operative instructions. To manage bleeding effectively, it is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by our dentist. These instructions may include:

  • Applying gentle pressure with gauze or a clean cloth to control bleeding.
  • Avoiding strenuous physical activities that could increase blood flow to the area and potentially prolong bleeding.
  • Avoiding spitting, rinsing, or using straws for the first 24 hours after the surgery.
  • Maintaining good oral hygiene by gently brushing your teeth and tongue while avoiding the surgical area.
  • Following a soft food diet and avoiding hard or crunchy foods that could disrupt the surgical site.

If you experience excessive or prolonged bleeding, severe pain, or any other concerning symptoms, it is crucial to contact our office for further evaluation and guidance. We will be able to assess your specific situation and provide appropriate recommendations.

Some discomfort or pain is common after a dental implant procedure, but the severity and duration of pain can vary from person to person. The level of discomfort experienced depends on factors such as the complexity of the procedure, individual pain tolerance, and adherence to post-operative instructions. These instructions may include:

  • Taking prescribed or over-the-counter medications as directed.
  • Applying ice packs to the outside of your face to reduce swelling (usually recommended for the first 24 to 48 hours).
  • Eating soft foods and avoiding chewing on the implant site.
  • Avoiding strenuous physical activities that could potentially disrupt the healing process.
  • Maintaining good oral hygiene by gently brushing your teeth and tongue, while avoiding the surgical area.

If you experience severe or persistent pain, excessive swelling, bleeding, or any other concerning symptoms, you should contact our office for further evaluation and guidance. We will be able to assess your specific situation and provide appropriate recommendations to alleviate your discomfort.

While dental implants have a high success rate, it is possible for them to fail in some cases. The failure rate for dental implants is generally low, ranging from 2% to 5%. However, several factors can contribute to implant failure. Infection, hygiene, insufficient bone support, smoking, neighboring tooth infection, and systemic health factors such as diabetes can all be major risk factors that contribute to an implant failing. It is recommended that you follow our post-operative instructions to ensure that you do everything in your power to have a successful implant therapy.
