What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a form of tooth replacement solution. Instead of wearing dentures or doing a dental bridge to replace missing teeth, a dental implant can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.

Dental Implants are a permanent solution that will help you have better quality of life by helping you chew better and enjoy your food more!

Types of Missing Teeth Solutions

Single Dental Implant

Multiple Dental Implants / Implant Bridge

Full Mouth Restoration

Benefits of Dental Implants

1) Prevents Bone Loss
 
When you lose teeth, you also tend to lose bone mass in your jaw. Dental implants can stimulate the jawbone to prevent further bone loss.

2) Restores Biting Force
 
Dental Implants allow you to restore and improve your chewing efficiency. With better biting force, you will be able to enjoy your food more!

3) Permanent Solution to Tooth Loss
 
Other teeth replacement solutions such as dentures might require replacement periodically.

Dental Implant Procedure

1) Consultation by our Specialists and X-rays

A consultation will be done by one of our Specialists, and an X-ray will be taken to check the surrounding structures and the jawbone. Occasionally, we will recommend a 3D X-ray called a Cone Beam CT scan to be taken.
 
With all the necessary records, our Specialist will be able to advise you on the fees/costs involved.

2) Dental Implant Surgery

Dental Implant surgery typically consists of 2 stages over a period of 3-6 months, depending on the individual patient’s oral health and bone health.
This procedure involves the surgical placement of a titanium screw onto the underlying bone.
 
Once the implant has been placed, you will need to allow the implant site to heal for about 2-3 months, before affixing an attachment (abutment) with a crown.
The crown will be custom made to match your neighbouring teeth for good aesthetics.
 
Dental implant surgeries are usually done under local anaesthesia. We do provide other pain relief option as well, so do speak to your Specialist and discuss the other available options before proceeding with treatment.

3) Post-Operative Care

Painkillers will be prescribed to you during the healing period, and our Specialist will explain how to properly care for your implant site.
 
Implants are almost like your natural teeth, so we do recommend that you care for them like how you would with your natural teeth. Do visit your dentist for your regular cleaning and check-ups, and your dental implants will be able to last you for a very long time.

Dental Implant Treatment Cost

The cost of a dental implant varies as there are many factors to consider when it comes to implant treatment. It ranges from the brand and type of implants used, the crown material and whether you require a single implant, a bridge, or a denture.

For some patients, a sinus lift surgery and/or bone graft might be required to ensure implant stability after surgery.

To better understand your suitability of dental implant treatment and the exact costs of your entire implant treatment, we recommend that you speak to one of our Specialists.
