Dental implants that look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth
Missing teeth can entail a huge variety of problems. Appearance aside, it could pose a serious issue when it comes to eating and speaking as it also affects your ability to articulate clearly and chew properly.
However, do not fret. You need not give up on your favourite food or let it affect your confidence just because of missing teeth. Using the latest technology, rest assured that the team at Specialist Dental Group Singapore will help you regain your confidence with dental implants that look, feel and function like natural teeth
Whether it is a result of extensive cavities, severe injury, an unfortunate accident or periodontal (gum) disease, our team of dental implant specialists/surgeons in Singapore can provide an accurate consultation about the dental implant procedure and whether dental implant treatment is a suitable procedure for you.
How dental implants can change your life?
A dental implant is a man-made foundation – usually in the form of a titanium screw – that is placed into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for the missing tooth’s root. It becomes the anchor point for the new teeth (implant crown). This procedure offers the patient a number of benefits:
- Dental implants are a permanent solution for one or multiple missing teeth.
- They look, feel and function just like your natural teeth
What is involved in a dental implant procedure in Singapore?
Our dental specialists/ dentists will find out the details of your medical and dental history, go through a consultation and examination, and take an x-ray of your teeth and jaws, to ascertain if you are suitable for dental implants. Thereafter, our dentists will discuss with you to recommend the most appropriate solution for your needs.
A titanium screw – the dental implant, is placed into your jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The implant serves as an anchor for your new tooth/ teeth. Temporary replacement teeth will be fabricated and fitted on the same day as your implant placement so that you do not leave our clinic without teeth.
2 to 6 months later, once the bond is formed between the implant(s) and your bone (osseointegration), new permanent teeth (implant crowns) can be firmly attached to the implant(s). Our dental specialists/ dentists will make an impression of your teeth and fabricate the replacement teeth (dental crowns) that will be attached to the dental implants.
Once completed, your new teeth will look, feel and function just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants require the same maintenance as your natural teeth – flossing, brushing, and regular dental check-ups. Periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor the dental implants, teeth, and gums to make sure that everything is in tip-top condition

Frequently asked questions
How do I clean/maintain my dental implants?
Implant supported teeth look and function very similar to our natural teeth and you should care for them as you would care for your natural teeth. This includes brushing with fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and visiting your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and professional cleaning.
If the implants are supporting a removable denture, the denture and the implants should be cleaned separately. Removable dentures are best left out of the mouth in a glass of water while you are sleeping. This allows some ‘breathing time’ for the gums.
What should I do after my implant surgery?
Bite onto the gauze placed over the surgical site for 1hour. If you do taste any blood, it is normal. Do not spit it out, rinse your mouth or brush your teeth for 24 hours. Rinsing your mouth and spitting out may dislodge the blood clot and bleeding may start again. It is harmless to swallow any blood you may taste. The surgical site usually stays numb for approximately 2 hours. Hot food and drinks should not be consumed until the numbness wears off. After that, eat over the other side of your mouth that has not been treated. It is crucial to take all the medication as prescribed and keep to your follow-up appointment.
When is bone augmentation or bone graft surgery required? What is the downtime for the procedure?
Bone grafts help in the placement of dental implants and replaces missing gums. Bone graft surgeries are commonly done to improve the oral tissue to support replacement teeth. For a bigger bone graft, they may be harvested from the hip.
For smaller bone grafts, sterile materials from a vial will be sufficient. For larger bone graft procedures, a few days of rest may be needed. For smaller procedures, the rest time could be minimal.
Do implant procedures hurt? What is the downtime for the procedure?
Implant procedures are painless. Under local anaesthesia and occasionally in combination with a mild general anaesthetic (called sedation), the procedures are carried out pain-free. In combination with adhering to the medicine prescribed post-treatment, recovery should be painless as well.
Downtime is minimal. Most of our patients can get back to normal daily activities on the same day. Some may choose to take it easy for a day or two – it is a matter of personal choice.
I have a failing tooth, should I remove it ahead of time and replace it with an implant?
This depends on the long term prognosis of the tooth and the expected success rate of the treatment for that failing tooth. World-wide scientific studies from 1965 onwards have shown that implant teeth are approximately 95% successful.
If the expected success rate of the salvage procedure for the failing tooth is diagnosed to be poor, it may be wiser to remove a failing tooth and replace it with dental implants. Also, over the long process of failing teeth, the associated jawbone is commonly destroyed. This often complicates and occasionally disallows future teeth replacement. In general, hanging onto failing teeth without treatment is not recommended.
When should I have dental implants?
Once teeth are diagnosed as ailing, the jawbones will continue to shrink over time. Once teeth are gone, after a number of years, the jawbone can become quite thin. A thin jawbone does not support dentures and the jawbone may be susceptible to fractures. Scientific studies have shown that dental implants, like healthy natural teeth, maintain the volume of healthy jawbones over time.
How would my dental implants look?
Looking at a smile with dental implants is like looking at a smile with natural teeth. No one will be able to tell the difference.
How do dental implants compare with dentures?
Modern technology allows dentures to be made accurately and well fitting. However, even with these advances, with time, many patients may suffer from denture pain, denture slippage and discomfort. This is especially true for those individuals with a full set of lower dentures.
Dental implants are strong because they are directly anchored in the jawbones, just like real teeth. Unlike conventional dentures, there is no problem with slippage, which means that one can eat and speak with comfort and confidence.
Dentures cover large areas of the mouth and taste buds. This makes eating less enjoyable and food tastes less tasty. Dental crowns which permanent teeth attached to dental implants do not cover such a large area and do not compromise the taste of food.
Can anyone, adults of any age and children, have dental implants?
Dental implants are commonly used for adults but they are seldom recommended as a teeth replacement option for children.
