Implant Therapy

Implant Therapy

A dental implant is a titanium post that’s attached directly to the jawbone and acts as an anchor for a permanent artificial tooth, bridge or denture. The process is simple, clean and relatively painless. Placing a Dental Implant has become the best standard of care for a missing tooth over bridges, because it doesn’t involve the cutting or manipulation of adjacent teeth!

In the last ten years the number of North Americans receiving implant dentistry has more than tripled.

The Implant Therapy In Leamington Process

People who are in general good health are prime candidates for dental implants. Having enough bone in your jaw and healthy gums are critical. A bone graft is another possibility if your jawbone has shrunk or not developed properly.

Careful Steps

The procedure follows several careful steps over a period of up to nine months. Some patients might need several specialists that include an oral surgeon and periodontist.


The first part of the process is an evaluation. A patient’s jawbone, teeth and gums are inspected. Your jawbone needs to be healthy and people need to be free of any periodontal disease.

These implants replace one or several teeth. During this initial part of the process, the type and scope of your implants will be evaluated.

  • The first stage is cutting open the gum to expose the jawbone.
  • Holes are drilled and then the implant post is fitted.

The next stage is called osseointegration. This takes several months as new bone grows around the implant screw.

The following step in implant therapy in Leamington involves placing the abutment. This is a metal extender that gets added to the implant. These abutments connect replacement teeth to the post.

The gums can take several weeks to heal after an abutment gets placed.

The Final Stage

An artificial replacement tooth has already been made. It gets attached to the abutment by your dentist.

Implant Maintenance

Our implant therapy in Leamington process results in artificial teeth that act and look just like your original ones. Just like your natural teeth, these implants need to be maintained with brushing and flossing.

Just Like Natural Teeth

Dental implants are made to look and act just like your natural teeth. The procedure can take several months from start to finish. However, when these are properly fitted, they can last for many decades.
