Our Dental Implant Clinic
What is dental implant (or tooth implant)?
A dental implant/tooth implant offers a permanent solution to missing teeth/tooth. A dental implant/tooth implant consists of a small titanium screw that is inserted into the jawbone in the course of a dental implant/tooth implant surgery. Dental implant replaces the root of the missing tooth/teeth and serves as an anchor for new tooth/teeth. After which, a replacement tooth/teeth in the form of crown, bridge or denture, is placed over the implant.
Why dental implants (or tooth implants)?
Dental implants/tooth implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, such as crowns, bridges or over-dentures. Dental implants/tooth implants can act as a replacement for teeth, whether it is a single missing tooth and multiple missing teeth. Recent long-term studies have shown that root-form endosseous dental implants have a very high success rate in the long run. With dental implant technology and surgical techniques progressing in giant leaps and bounds, dental implants have now become the gold standard for the replacement of missing teeth.
In Singapore, a dental implant/tooth implant cost ranges between S$3500 and S$7000, depending on the complexity of the dental implant conditions. Some factors determining the teeth implant price are, the condition of jaw bone & gum, bone grafting requirements, the type of dental implants/tooth implants, staging of dental implant/tooth implant surgery and most importantly, the dental implant/tooth implant surgeon's experience.
