Dental Implant FAQs

At Dentistry In The Village, & Clarkson North Dental

Here at Dentistry In The Village and Clarkson North Dental in Mississauga ON, our goal is to provide you with all the information you need to choose the best option for your best dental health. Part of that goal is met by providing critical information about dental implants. If you read these frequently asked questions and still have questions you need answered, please feel free to contact our office and our friendly staff will do their best to answer them.

Here are some of the more commonly asked questions we get regarding dental implants:

How long does the process take from start to finish?2023-06-16T19:29:46+00:00

The dental implant placement procedure typically takes less than an hour for each implant. Healing generally takes between three and six months. Supplemental procedures can add time to the total healing process. For more information on supplemental treatments and who may need them, please see our page on Supplemental Procedures.

Will my insurance plan pay for dental implants or will I need to pay for them out of pocket?2023-06-16T19:29:03+00:00

Many dental plans do not offer insurance payment for dental implants because they are considered an elective procedure. Medical insurance plans sometimes provide benefits depending on what caused the original damage to the teeth. As implants continue to gain popularity, more carriers are beginning to cover some of their cost. If you have questions about your specific plan or procedure, you should contact your insurance carrier or call our helpful staff.

I have heard they are very expensive. How much do implants cost?2023-06-16T19:28:39+00:00

The cost for dental implants depends on the individual patient’s health, the provider chosen, the type of implant selected, and how many implants are needed. The average cost of one implant can run the gamut from $3,500 to $5,000. Most patients are happy to report that the benefits of dental implants are well worth the money spent on treatment.

How soon can I eat after my placement procedure?2023-06-16T19:28:08+00:00

Once the anesthesia wears off, patients can eat soft, room temperature foods. However, patients should avoid chewing in the area where dental implants have been placed until the area is fully healed.

I am missing most of the teeth in my upper jaw. Would dental implants be a good option for me?2023-06-16T19:27:41+00:00

Before dental implant surgery can be initiated, patients must schedule a no-obligation consultation with Dr. Michael Luciani or Dr. Amanika Luciani. During this appointment, we will discuss the dental implants procedure, examine your mouth, and answer any questions you may have.

Am I too old for dental implants?2023-06-16T19:27:04+00:00

Although there is no age limit for this tooth replacement treatment, there are some patients that do better with dental implants. Please see our Dental Implant Candidacy page if you would like more details about the patients that best qualify for dental implant treatment.

This seems like an amazing option, but what actually are dental implants?2023-06-16T19:26:15+00:00

Dental implants are an exciting option to replace missing or damaged teeth. If this is the option you choose, your replacement teeth will consist of small titanium fixtures permanently attached to the jawbone. The tiny roots will grow into and fuse with your jawbone, locking them into place. Once this process is complete, your doctor will attach a natural-looking replacement tooth that blends in seamlessly with your other teeth.

Dental Implant Testimonials

“As someone who requires regular dental maintenance, I would not hesitate to recommend this dental office to anyone. The owners and staff are amazing. They always make me feel relaxed, comfortable, and in great hands. If you’re looking for a new dentist, give them a call.”


“Best dentist I’ve been to by far. Both of them do such a great job, and somehow make the needles painless (as opposed to other dentists I’ve been to). Both of them are great, and I always leave happy. Thank you for taking care of my teeth!”


“I have been going to Mavis Dental for the last 7 years. My family lives close to the office and when I moved back to the area I was looking for a new dentist. Originally I had visited another dentist up the street, but I had a very negative experience there taking out my wisdom teeth.

I booked an appointment to see Dr. Monica (Amanika Luciani) for a consult. Since my family had been going there for years, I had decided to give them a try. The first dentist that I went to in the area for my wisdom removal had outsourced a “travelling specialist” who performed the extraction. The result was my gums being hacked up and the extraction not complete. Dr. Monica, after our initial consult corrected all the mistakes that the “specialist” had done. After the procedures for correction were complete, my wife and I had moved our business to Dr. Monica.

Over the years my wife and I have had emergencies and issues which needed immediate attention. I have had no issues being able to see Dr. Monica or Dr. Mike either that day or the next day. I appreciate that they take the time with you to tell you the issues or options for your dental health. This professionalism and courteous nature also translates to the dental hygienists and support staff at the office. The hygienists are friendly and thorough with their examination/cleaning. The front desk staff are great as well!! Understanding the daily grind of most people, they will try to schedule an appointment that fits your life, not theirs. If you have an issue with your teeth or dental health and are in the Mississauga area, don’t have any hesitation to visit them…5 stars!”


“I’m so very happy with my treatment and quick and friendly repair to my smile tonight! Thank you so much, Dr. Mike. The place is so beautiful and I felt so welcome. See you again soon!”


“A wonderful place to get all of your dental needs met. I could not be more pleased with the care I received from Dr. Monica. She is the best! Thanks again guys!”
