What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implant is a tooth replacement appliance that is made up of medical-grade titanium which will be inserted into the jaw bone to replicate the function of an actual tooth.

In recent years, dental implants are a popular choice in Singapore for replacing missing teeth. This is because dental implants does not require the trimming of any of your natural teeth. The implant is independent and functions just like your own teeth. As it is fixed in your jawbone, the maintenance of the dental implant is easy with flossing and brushing. Of course, regularly dental check up is also important to keep your dental implant and surrounding gums clean and healthy.

A dental implant is made up of 3 components -CROWN, ABUTMENT and FIXTURE

Each implant is specially customised to suit the patient's oral condition. For example, the dental implant crown comes with a few materials that you can choose from namely - Zirconia, Porcelain and PFM (Porcelain Fused Metal). Each material comes with its pros and cons but not to worry! Our dentists are trained to advise you on which material will be more suitable for your needs.



Types of Implants

We can use implants in a few different methods to help you achieve the most ideal teeth replacement results.

Single Tooth Implant

The most common of dental implant cases that we often encountered. After a thorough oral examination and if the patient is suitable for a dental implant, our dentist will proceed to replace the void left by the missing tooth with a dental implant. This whole surgery usually takes about 30-60mins and the patient will be able to leave the clinic after the end of the surgery.



Dental Implant Supported Bridge

When missing multiple teeth, a dental implant supported bridge will be very helpful for this situation. For example, a patient is missing 3 teeth in a row. Instead of having 3 single dental implant, which roughly cost about $6000-$7000. A dental implant supported bridge consists of 2 single dental implant and a 3 unit dental crown will be able to achieve similar results for a more affordable price! The bridge will be supported by 2 dental implants anchored on both ends of the dental bridge.



Dental Implant Supported Dentures

For patients who are missing a whole set of teeth and they are unable to get used to wearing a full set denture, an implant supported denture might just be the solution they need.

Depending on their oral condition, one might need 2-4 dental implants to be inserted into their jawbone. Thereafter, a full arch denture will be placed on top of the dental implants keeping the full arch denture firmly in place.



How will the dental implant appointments be like?

1Dental Implant Consultation & 3D Xray
During the very first dental implant consultation, a 3D xray will be taken inhouse to determine if the patient is suitable for dental implants or whether bone grafting is required. Our dentists will then discuss with the patient on the treatment plan and brief the patient on what is it like to undergo a dental implant surgery.
2Dental Implant Surgery
a) Before the surgery starts, the patient will go under local anaesthesia around the area where the implant will be placed.

b) The dental implant fixture will then be surgically inserted into the jawbone

c) Once the implant is placed, a waiting time of typically 2-4 months is required for the bone to heal around the implant (known as osseointegration)
3Dental Crown, Bridges or Denture
2-4 months later, a follow up appointment will be schedule for the fabrication of the custom-made dental implant crown.
