Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
Are you considering getting dental implants in Kanata but aren’t sure where to start? The dental implant process has become a common dental restoration option. Though even with it’s popularity, dental implant work requires oral surgeons with lots of experience in restorative dentistry, and it can take several weeks to complete. Our dental implants feature a small titanium post
that functions as the tooth root and is implanted in the
bone of the socket with the missing tooth.
As the healing process begins, the jawbone grows around
the implanted post and anchors it in place. Once the dental
implant is in place, our dentists will make impressions of
your teeth to create a model of your bite. The new tooth,
based on this model, is then attached to a connector post
and attached to the implanted post. For a permanent
solution to the loss of a tooth, choose to get your dental
implants in Kanata with Village Green Dental Care.

What's Involved in Getting Dental Implants?
The Dental Implant Process
The first step is creating an individualized treatment plan and understanding the specific needs for your dental implant surgery. Once a definitive plan has been agreed upon, the dental implant surgery can begin.
The dental implant surgery takes place in 3 phases:
- Placing the Implant
- Attaching the Abutment
- Fitting the Crown
The recovery time and process varies from one patient to the next. You should expect a bit of bruising, swelling, and localized pain post surgery – some Advil or Tylenol will help. Speak with our team to learn more about our dental implant process and to see if dental implants are right for you!
Dental Implant FAQs
A dental implant is a titanium screw that’s implanted directly into the jaw to serve as a replacement for the root of a natural tooth. Dental implants can be placed in both upper and lower jaws and are a common solution for replacing either single or multiple missing teeth.
Without the natural root structure of a tooth present, the intra-oral bone shrinks. The shrinkage can affect your other teeth, make your facial muscles sag, and can also compromise your bite force. Dental implants are a stable, comfortable, and permanent solution for replacing missing teeth.
There are several factors that can impact the timeline of getting dental implants:
- Which teeth are getting replaced
- How many teeth are involved
- Your oral/dental health
- If you’ll need extractions
The process of getting implants occurs in multiple steps and can take anywhere from 3 – 9 months. The healing process after extraction alone will typically take 6 – 12 weeks.
For 24-48 hours following dental implant surgery, you will be limited to drinking liquids and soft foods like:
- Ice Cream
- Mashed Potatoes
- Smooth Soups
On day 3 of the healing process, you can gradually begin to reintroduce regular foods, starting with foods that still require little chewing. Most patients return to a regular diet 7 days after their dental implant surgery.
With proper attention to oral hygiene, healthy nutritional habits, and regular dentist check-ups, your dental implants can last a lifetime.
The success rate varies based on the health and habits of a dental implants patient. For healthy individuals with good oral hygiene habits and who regularly visit their dentist, the success rate is about 95%.
