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 Anchorage, AK

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

No. We typically use implant bridges or implant supported dentures because it saves the patient money with the same or better clinical outcome.. An implant bridge is used where you have more than 2 missing teeth in a given area. This is where we use 2 implants spaced appropriately apart to have ideal proportions in restoring the teeth. Implant dentures are used to restore an entire jaw and can use as little as 4 implants to obtain an ideal foundation for support.
Yes, but there are risks to doing that. The benefit of a same day crown or bridge is you walk out with a tooth and we help control the healing of the gums from the beginning. The risk of doing that procedure is you may move the implant if you inadvertently chew with it. Like all bones in healing, if you move it in the critical 3 month window, the bone will not integrate around the implant. There are other options that are safer for implant success that we would recommend.

Implants at our office range from $4000-5000. It is $2000 to place an implant, $2000 for an implant crown, and $500-$1000 for bone grafting if it is needed.

Certain medical conditions and habits may put you at risk for implant success which include but are not limited to diabetes, smoking, osteoporosis, etc. You also have to have enough bone for an implant which is determined with a 3D CT. We have the ability to take that image in our office.
It is recommended that you treat your implants exactly the same way as regular teeth, which is daily brushing and flossing. Long term success is determined on the hygiene of the gums. If your gums are bleeding and inflamed when you brush then it is highly recommended that you consult with your doctor and come up with a plan together to get your oral hygiene on the right track.
Implant teeth should look exactly like normal teeth.
Yes, however if you receive a full denture that is supported by implants you will not have full proprioception, or sensation, on how hard you are chewing.
Most patients can go back to work within 48 hours. It is recommended to not work the remainder of the day after surgery.
For the average adult the implant process is 4 months. It usually takes 3 months for the implant to integrate into the bone and 1 month for the lab to fabricate a crown. If you are an implant denture patient it ranges from 4-6 months from start to finish.
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.

Yes, at our office we perform IV moderate sedation, but in some instances we recommend an anesthesiologist to perform general anesthesia.

It is common to have small amounts of bleeding 12-24 hours after the procedure.
Yes, there will be some pain after the procedure but our post operative protocol for medications is very effective in managing the discomfort.
No, we believe there aren’t enough long term studies that show the success rate for these implants. Although the initial studies are very promising using this material.
Yes, implants can fail and there are many factors that influence a failure. Infection, hygiene, medical conditions, smoking, diabetes, neighboring tooth infection 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.
