Strengthening Your Smile
with Dental Implants
Missing teeth can be uncomfortable, unsightly, and also lead to a number of oral and general health issues. For many years, the only solution for this included bridges and dentures. Today, with advanced dentistry, one of the best ways to replace a missing tooth is with a dental implant. Yazdani Family Dentistry is proud to offer this treatment. We are experts at replacing teeth with dental implants in Kanata and Kemptville.
Dental implants are a permanent way to replace a missing tooth with an artificial one. The implant is embedded into the jaw, and the new tooth is then attached to the implant. The implant effectively replaces the missing tooth’s root which helps to prevent jaw bone damage commonly occurring following a tooth loss. Unlike dental bridges and dentures, implants are entirely independent and do not require altering any healthy neighbouring teeth or tissues for support. In fact, they are designed to function just like a real, natural tooth. However, we may sometimes recommend other restoration methods as healthy jaw bone and gum tissue are required for a dental implant to be feasible.
Dental Implants to Replace
Dental implants aid you by preventing your surrounding teeth from shifting into the empty socket left over from your missing tooth (which can cause a number of other complications). They can also help to preserve your jawbone that exists under the missing tooth. Implants can also improve speech patterns, self-esteem, as well as overall oral health. Since surrounding teeth are not altered to support a dental implant, more teeth are left unaffected which improves their long-term health. Implants are also incredibly durable and can last a lifetime with proper care. They don’t need to be removed when sleeping or eating, making them incredibly convenient to live with.
With digital imaging, advanced ceramics, and state-of-the-art equipment, dental implants have become one of the most effective treatments used for gaps and missing teeth.

Dental Implants are made to last
One of the single greatest benefits of replacing a tooth with a dental implant is how long they last. With proper oral care including brushing and flossing daily, a dental implant can last up to 20 years or more before it needs to be replaced!
Compared to dental bridges and dentures, the amount of maintenance work needed for a dental implant is nearly non-existent! When considering your options, think about how often you would need to visit the dentist to have dentures relined, refitted or replaced. Also, think about how often you would have to visit the dentist to have a dental bridge adjusted and maintained or replaced. These are things that don't need to be considered when getting a dental implant.

Frequently Asked Questions
We get a lot of questions, naturally, about the wide range of dental services we perform here at our Kanata & Kemptville dental clinics. Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions. Don't see yours answered here? Feel free to reach out to Yazdani Family Dentistry.
The full procedure takes time and will require multiple appointments. Once the dental post has been implanted, it will take several months for it to heal and fuse to the existing bone structure. Implants in the lower jaw usually take about 3 months to heal. Implants in the upper jaw usually take about 6 months to heal. During this time, a temporary tooth can be provided.
Most dental implants last about 20 years. With proper care such as brushing twice daily, flossing and having regular dental cleanings, dental implants can last much longer, even a full lifetime!
Everybody’s benefits and dental insurance plans are different. Some plans cover procedures up to a certain dollar amount in a calendar year. Others cover some procedures and not others. It is important to review your coverage with us and consult your provider to determine what is covered. We also offer financing options to make the procedure more affordable for you.
After the surgery to install the implant post, your gums around the site of the implant will be tender and slightly swollen for a few days. During this time, it is best to avoid hard foods, and foods that are too hot or cold. Stick to lukewarm liquids and soft foods for the first few days, and when the swelling and tenderness subsides, you can start to incorporate foods you used to eat as long as you’re careful about chewing near the implant site. It is also important to avoid sticky foods as they can cause the implant post to shift if it hasn’t fully set.
Yes, you can. We recommend getting a dental implant sooner rather than later to avoid degradation of the surrounding gum and bone structures, but even if you have had a tooth extracted 3, 5 or even 10 years in the past, you can still potentially be eligible for a dental implant.
