Dental Implant FAQs
What Is the Difference Between an Implant and a Crown?
An implant is a full replacement tooth that replaces both the roots and the tooth. An implant has three parts to it. (1) The implant. The implant replaces the root of the tooth. (2) The abutment. The abutment is screwed into the implant and retains the crown. (3) The crown. The crown is the replacement tooth.
Why Choose You Over a Specialist?
When you have an implant placed with us, you will have all of your procedures conveniently done in one office. Because it is more convenient, it is also less expensive to have an implant placed with us.
What Is the Recovery Time Like? Will I Be Without Teeth?
An implant procedure is less invasive than removing a tooth and thus much less uncomfortable. Most patients will experience some discomfort for a day or two which can generally be managed with over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen. We will never leave you without front teeth. There are several ways that we can have temporary teeth made for you. If we place a back tooth implant we usually will allow the implant to heal but you always have the option of having a temporary one made.
