    The 4 Main Reasons You May Need a Dental Implant/”Tooth Replacement Therapy” are:

    1. Cavity – A Cavity So Large That Your Tooth is Not Restorable With a Dental Crown or Due to Lack of Remaining Tooth Structure is a common reason for extraction and placement of a dental implant.
    2. Fracture of Your Tooth – From Something Eaten Leading to a Portion of the Tooth breaking, leaving the remaining tooth unrestorable with a crown and a root canal. 
    3. You Experience Tooth pain or Toothache – If your tooth is radiating lightning-type pain leading to an extraction of your tooth, a Dental Implant may be placed.
    4. Infection of Your Tooth – If the surrounding bone of your natural tooth is eaten away by bacteria producing pus, an extraction and Dental Bone Grafting are typically placed to heal the site and a Dental Implant will be placed weeks to months later.

    What Happens if I Do Not Restore My Missing Space with a Dental Implant?

    Here Are The Top 4 Things That Happen When Your Tooth Breaks and a Replacement is NOT Put In:

    1. The Tooth Behind the Space Tips Over – Teeth tend to move toward your midline if no tooth is in front of them. This leads to “mesial tipping” or your neighboring tooth.
    2. The Tooth Above the Space Drops Down, or Sinks – Extrusion, or a tooth drooping out of the socket occurs when a tooth does not have a partner. This frequently happens on upper molars that have sinuses pushing upper molars out of the socket when they expand from sinus pressure.
    3. The Bone Where the Tooth Was Removed “Melts” Away – Bone loss occurs following the first 6-12 months and even beyond you lose a tooth. The loss of bone, or “melting”, make it impossible for future implant placement without extensive bone grafting. That is why immediate implant placement is recommended if at all possible.
    4. Remaining Teeth in Your Mouth Must Do Extra Work – From the point you lose your tooth, that tooth AND the partnering tooth are essentially non-functional. When chewing food you are at greater risk for fracture of other naturally healthy teeth due to additional stress and load they are placed under.

    Why Would I Choose a Dental Implant Vs. Dental Bridge Vs. Partial Denture?

    Here Are The Top 3 Reasons to Consider a Dental Implant When Your Tooth Breaks as a Replacement Over a Dental Bridge or Partial Denture:

    1. Ease of flossing – Dental Implant Crowns function almost as a Dental Crown on a natural tooth, with space for you to floss in front and behind them. This makes Dental Implant Crowns more analogous to natural teeth than Dental Bridges, from a maintenance point-of-view.
    2. Permanently Cemented – Once Your Dental Implant Crown is cemented, it does not require removal at night, like you would experience with a partial denture.
    3. Increased Chewing Efficiency  – A full denture is about 1/3 as efficient when chewing as a full set of natural teeth. A partial denture replacing one or multiple spaces is not as efficient at chewing or handling the force a fully-integrated Dental Implant has.
    4. Material Selection – Partial Dentures are made from acrylic teeth, whereas we can custom-fabricate your Dental Implant Crown out of similar Metal-Free “All-Porcelain” materials we use for Dental Crowns on Natural Teeth.
    5. Higher Levels of Bone and Gums with Dental Implants – By stimulating the bone to stay at higher levels with a Dental Implant, chances of recession on neighboring teeth go down. As bone levels go down after an extraction and a Dental Bridge or Partial Denture, so too your gum levels go with it.

    Dental Implant Post Operative Care

    Post-op Care for Dental Implants Immediate Postoperative Care Care should be taken in the immediate postoperative period to minimize contact with the implant.

    Aside from normal hygiene, it is best to completely leave the implant alone for the first 2 weeks after placement.

    You may want to limit foods to softer items and chew in an area away from the implant during the 10 to 12 week integration stage.

    Bleeding Minimal bleeding is expected after implant surgery.

    Bleeding after surgery may continue for several hours.

    The best way to stop bleeding is to fold 2 pieces of damp gauze over the extraction site and gently bite for 30-60 minutes making sure pressure is being applied to the extraction site.

    Rest quietly with your head elevated.

    If bleeding continues, use gauze for an additional 30 minutes.

    Bleeding should always be evaluated by looking directly at the surgical site.

    Pink or blood-tinged saliva may be seen for 2-3 days following the surgery and does not indicate a problem.

    Suture material may last 2 to 3 days and should be left alone.

    You will be asked to return to the office for a 2 week follow-up appointment.

    Any sutures remaining at that time may be removed at the surgeon’s discretion.

    Do not pull or cut the sutures yourself.

    Swelling – Swelling is the body’s normal reaction to surgery and healing.

    The swelling will not become apparent until 24 hours after surgery and will not reach its peak for 2-3 days.

    After this time, the swelling should decrease but may persist for 7-10 days.

    Swelling may be minimized by the immediate use of ice packs.

    Apply the ice packs to the outside of the face 20 minutes on and then 20 minutes off while awake for the first 24 hours.

    After 48 hours, begin use of a warm, moist compress to the cheek.

    Medication / Pain –  Unfortunately, most oral surgery is accompanied by some degree of discomfort.

    If you do not have an allergy to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil) we recommend taking this prior to the local anesthetic wearing off.

    More severe pain may require a narcotic pain medication.

    Alternate Ibuprofen (3 tablets / 200mg each) and the Tylenol #3 medication every two hours if needed.

    Once you feel like you can stop the narcotic, use Ibuprofen or Tylenol.

    You may also be prescribed an antibacterial mouth rinse which should be used twice daily in the first two weeks following implant surgery.

    All medications should not exceed the recommended dosage. 

    Diet After I.V. sedation – Start with liquids.

    While numb, patients should avoid hot liquids or foods.

    Patients may have applesauce, pudding, or jello.

    Once numbness wears off patients can progress to solid foods, chewing away from the surgical sites.

    Oral Hygiene – The best way to prevent infection and ensure healing is to keep your mouth clean.

    Clean your mouth thoroughly after each meal beginning the day after surgery.

    Use a soft bristle toothbrush and toothpaste after meals and at bedtime.

    Should bleeding resume after brushing, repeat the use of gauze as described above.

    Do not rinse your mouth the day of surgery.

    Activity For the first 48 hours you should rest and relax with no physical activity.

    After 48 hours, you may resume activity as tolerated.

    Healing Bad breath is common and will disappear as healing occurs.

    Two to three days following surgery, white, possible hard tissue may be seen in the surgical site.

    This signifies normal, healing tissue.

    It’s not unusual to see the silver healing cap appear through gum tissue following procedure.

    Antibiotics If an antibiotic is prescribed, take the tablets or liquid as directed.

    Take the entire prescription until gone.

    Antibiotics can be given to help prevent infection.

    Make sure to call the office if a rash or other unfavorable reaction occurs.

    Foods to Drink and Eat While Numb AVOID carbonated beverages and hot liquids for 48 hours Drink:

    Eat: Water Applesauce Juice Jell-O Ice Chips Pudding Popsicles Yogurt Milkshake (no straw) Add Soft Foods When Numbness is Gone Mashed Potatoes Pasta Eggs Pancakes Creamed Cereals Soups (be careful-not too hot) Increase Diet as Tolerated Other Considerations Your surgeon will notify you and your dentist when your implant is ready for restoration; typically 10 to 12 weeks following implant placement.
