Dental Implants Singapore

Dental implants are sophisticated teeth replacements that look and feel natural.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Once the implant is in place, a crown, bridge, or denture can be attached to it to restore the appearance and function of the missing tooth. It can help with tooth loss, improve your smile, your oral hygiene, and your overall quality of life in long term.

Are dental implants suitable for everyone?

Dental implants are generally suitable for most people. But there are some factors that may make you ineligible for the procedure such as severe gum disease, active infections and certain medical conditions. If you have any of these conditions, talk to our dentist they can evaluate your individual circumstances and recommend the best treatment plan for you.

Dental Implant Surgery Procedure in Singapore


During a consultation, your dentist will evaluate the area where there are missing teeth. They will take a dental x-ray to assess the bone quality and quantity in the area. They will also discuss your medical history and overall health to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

The most commonly used implant procedure is a “staged surgery” procedure. In this procedure, the implant is placed in the jawbone during the first surgery. The second surgery, which is usually performed several months later, involves placing the crown or tooth supported bridge on the implant.

Stage 1:Implant Placement

The first stage of a dental implant procedure involves placing the implant into the bone below the gum line. This is done under local anesthesia, so you will be awake but numb during the procedure.

The dentist or oral surgeon will make an incision in your gum tissue to expose the bone. Then, they will use a drill to create a hole in the bone that is the same size as the implant. The implant is then screwed into the hole.

Once the implant is in place, the dentist or oral surgeon will close the incision with stitches. You will need to wait for the implant to heal for several months before moving on to the next stage of the procedure.

Stage 2: Abutment Placement and Crown Fabrication

Once the implant has fused to the bone, the dentist will perform a second surgery to expose the top of the implant and place a healing abutment. The healing abutment is a small post that fits over the top of the implant and allows the gums to heal around it.

After the gums have healed, the dentist will remove the healing abutment and fabricate a custom crown to fit over the implant. The crown is made of a durable material, such as porcelain or metal, and is designed to look and function like a natural tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants in Singapore

  • Feel — because implants are embedded in your bone, they feel more like your natural teeth than bridges or dentures.
  • Convenience — you will not need to worry about denture adhesives or having your dentures slip, click or fall out when you speak.
  • Nutrition — you will be able to chew better with implants. Chewing can be difficult with regular dentures, especially ones that don’t fit perfectly. A regular upper denture also covers your palate, which can reduce your sense of taste.
  • Self-esteem — because implants are so much like your natural teeth, (not feeling like artificial teeth), you will think about them less. There is no need to worry about denture problems or people noticing that you have missing teeth! Regular dentures can also affect your speech, which can make you less self-confident when talking to others.

How painful is the dental implant procedure?

Dental implant is a minor surgical procedure. The amount of pain you experience will vary depending on your individual pain tolerance and the extent of the surgery. Most patients report feeling some discomfort after the surgery, but this can be managed with pain medication. The pain usually subsides within a few days.

If you are concerned about pain, talk to our dentist about your options. There are a number of things that can be done to minimize pain, such as using local anesthesia or sedation. Most patients will be very familiar with the dental anaesthetics used for routine dentistry and will know how effective they are. Implants are placed using the same anaesthesia.

Since the surgery normally involves exposing the bone in the area where the implant and/or bone graft is to be placed, you will expect some minor swelling and occasionally bruising afterwards.

To relieve discomfort, simple painkillers commonly used to relieve headaches should suffice. Subsequently, if you experience more discomfort than this, please contact your dentist who can prescribe a stronger medication.


Dental implant aftercare is important to ensure the success of your implant. Your dentist will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your implants, but here are some general tips:

  • Keep your mouth clean. Brush your teeth and implants twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Floss your teeth daily, using a water flosser or interdental brushes.
  • Rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash after brushing. This will help to kill any bacteria that may be present in your mouth.
  • Avoid chewing hard foods. Avoid chewing on hard foods, such as nuts, ice, and raw carrots. These foods can damage your implants.
  • See your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. Your dentist will check your implants for any signs of problems and make sure they are properly cared for.

By following these tips, you can help ensure the success of your dental implants and enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth.

Here are some additional tips for dental implant aftercare:

  • Do not smoke or use tobacco products. Smoking can slow down the healing process and increase the risk of complications.
  • Be careful with your mouth. Avoid activities that could put stress on your implants, such as biting your nails or chewing on pens or pencils.
  • Get enough rest. Your body needs time to heal after surgery. Get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activity.
  • Eat a healthy diet. Eating a healthy diet will help your body heal and fight infection.

If you have any questions or concerns about the dental implant aftercare, be sure to talk to our dentist.
