Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth since mid 1950’s.It has gained increasing popularity in recent time due to its highly successful result and predictability. 

It can be used to support crown as single missing tooth replacement, dental bridge that restore a larger span of missing teeth, or even to support loose denture. Dental implant is made of titanium metal, which is known to be compatible with our human body tissues and able to bond with adjacent bone during healing. Currently, there is large amount of evidence from clinical studies and scientific researches to demonstrate that dental implant is a safe and convenient way to replace missing teeth with natural-looking smile appearance.

Why choose dental implant?
Dental implant has many important advantages over conventional crown, bridge and denture:

Dental Implant appears and feels like natural tooth.
Dental Implant can chew in the same way as natural teeth with no difficulties with eating.
Your healthy adjacent natural teeth do not have to be filed down to act as supports for the missing tooth or teeth. This means that they are therefore less likely to be weakened, painful and consequently need root canal treatment.
Dental implant when integrated maintains the structure of the jawbone beneath the replaced tooth, as chewing forces are transmitted through the dental implant to the bone, stimulating the natural process of jawbone renewal. This helps preserve a good appearance, both of the restored teeth and of the face.
Dental implant can be used to secure loose removable denture for better function.
When dental implant is placed, there is no need to use denture adhesives or glues to hold the false teeth in place, as there is with some dentures.

Is the material used to make dental implant safe?
A dental implant is essentially a titanium metal screw, normally between 8 to 16 mm long, which is inserted into a prepared bony socket in the jaw. It will act as a replacement root for the missing tooth. A specially made titanium metal attachment called the abutment will be attached onto the implant, which forms the external connection for the new replacement tooth (crown) or teeth (bridge or denture).

During healing, the titanium surface of the implant fuses with the surrounding bone, in a process known as osseointegration, which can take about 3-6 months. After this time, the implant is sufficiently strong to support one or more false teeth.

When is dental implant treatment not possible?
It may not be possible to place implant if the jaw bone is not sufficiently thick to fit the dental implant and bone grafting is not possible. Also, implants are not suitable for patients with untreated gum disease or uncontrolled diabetes, because of the risk of failure through infection or poor healing.

There are other medical conditions that may contra-indicate the use of implants include blood clotting disorders; certain bone diseases, deficiencies in the immune system, severe systemic illnesses and drug abuse. Although smoking is not contra-indicated for implant, however smokers must be forewarned of lower implantation success rate because smokers heal less efficiently than non-smokers and are more likely to experience loosening of their implants. Quitting smoking will significantly improve your chances of successful dental implant treatment.

What does implant treatment involve?

  • Clinical Examination 
  • Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth and will take x-ray of your jaws to assess the shape and condition of your bone tissue and identify the locations of any important structures, such as nerves and sinuses, which may be close to the intended implantation site. This will allow the implant dentist to plan exactly how the implants will be placed. In a more complex situation, a computed tomography (CT) scan may be used to provide three-dimensional images, but this is a more costly procedure and exposes you to more radiation than standard radiographs. Thus, it will be only recommended when necessary.
  • Placement of the dental implant
  • Implant surgery can be carried out using either a one-stage or two-stage procedure, depending on your particular clinical circumstances. In either case, the surgery involves making a small incision in the gum to expose the bone and using a special drill to shape the implant site. 
  • In the one-stage procedure, the implant is fitted into the prepared bone and then an attachment called a healing cap, which protrudes through the gum, is placed over it. This healing cap is removed after a 3-6 month period and replaced with a permanent attachment called the abutment, which takes the form of a post and core. The replacement tooth, or crown, is cemented in place over the abutment.
  • In the two-stage procedure, a cover screw is placed flush over the top of the implant and the gum is sewn up over it for the period of healing. A second procedure is needed to uncover the implant via a small incision in the gum and attach the healing cap. Then, after the gums have healed, the healing cap is removed and replaced by the abutment, in readiness for the new crown.
    Your implant dentist will use his/her clinical judgment and experience to select the appropriate procedure for your implant therapy.
  • Dental implant impression
  • When your dental implant has fully healed (usually after healing period of 3 months), your dentist will take a new mould of your implant. This will be used to make a model of your teeth on which the dental technician will fabricate your implant crown or bridge, trying to achieve a natural finish that mimic the rest of your natural dentition.
  • Installation of crowns or bridges
  • When your new crowns and bridges have been fabricated, your implant dentist will cement or screw them on to the abutments over the dental implants, assess the appearance and fitting, and check that your upper and lower teeth work together comfortably when you bite. You will usually need to return for several clinical review sessions to make sure that the implants are stable and functioning appropriately, and that you are completely comfortable and pain free with the new implant prosthesis.

What is bone grafting and bone regeneration?


Bone grafts
Bone grafting procedure is performed to increase the width and height of the jawbone at the implant site. The best success can be achieved when bone from another part of your own mouth or body is used and this is known as autogenous grafting. Typically, bone is harvested from inside the mouth, as it is a good source of marrow which contains many bone cells. Allograft is a graft that use donated human bone taken from a ‘bone bank’ and work in the same way as autogenous grafts but with lesser success rate. Xenograft is a procedure that use bone from an animal donor, with cows acting as the main source (bovine bone). The bovine bone in the graft is replaced by your own bone tissue over time. Alloplast is grafting that use synthetic bone substitutes that are chemically similar to human bone. These grafts act as a sort of framework for new natural bone formation and may be replaced by natural bone (resorbable alloplast) or retained (non-resorbable alloplast).

An autogenous graft is the preferred choice because there is absolutely no risk of your body rejecting it. After the procedure, you will need to allow appropriate healing for at least 3-6 months before having implants placed. The exact waiting time will depend how much bone has been grafted.

Bone regeneration using barrier membranes (guided tissue regeneration)
This is a special surgical method to enable bone cells an advantage over other types of cell to multiply and cover an area where bone loss has happened. Frequently, cells from the gum surface and the connective tissues multiply much faster at filling the gaps created by bone destruction compared with the bone cells and so bone may not have an opportunity to regenerate even when inflammation has been eliminated. In this procedure, the barrier membrane covers the area of bone loss and prevents access to it for the other cell types, giving the bone cells a better opportunity to fill in the defect. The barrier membrane may disintegrate and disappear over time (resorbable) or may need to be removed in a later procedure (non-resorbable).

(ENGLISH) Dental Implant FAQ – Frequently asked questions

What is the success rate for dental implant surgery?

A: From 1975 to 2004, Implant success ranged between 90%mto 100% according to a clinical study. Reference) Immediate and early implant loading protocols : a literature review of clinical studies. J Prosthet Dent. 2005 Sep;94(3):242-58. Revi

How long is the Dental Implant Treatment Period ?

A: The treatment takes about one month from consultation up to the first surgery and another 2~3 months until the periodontal bones and implant are fixed firmly and the prosthesis is mounted. The period could be extended to 6~9 months depending on the condition of the jaw bones and mouth, your general health, chewing strength, and difference in the implant system.

Are Tooth Implants more expensive than Dentures?

A: Although the initial cost is high, implants are semi-permanent; thus, they are actually cheaper because no additional cost is incurred. In contrast, although the initial cost of dentures is lower than that of implant, additional cost may be incurred later.

Can Senior (Old / Geriatric) Patients undergo Tooth Implant Surgeries?

A: Yes & No. It all depends on the overall health and Oral health condition of the senior patient. Patients are usually advised to undergo implant surgery while they are still young because of the better bone condition, the bone volume, and the width and depth of bone where the implant will be placed. However, If initial consultation proves that surgery is possible with a high success rate, then elderly patients can undergo the surgery.

Does Dental (tooth) Implant Contain Harmful Metal Compositions?

A: No. Implant is made of titanium, forming TO2 on the surface in air, water, and other electrolyte by itself. Boasting of excellent bio-compatibility, implants are not harmful to the human body. The same material (Titanium) is also used in other medical implants during accidents and bone fractures.

What are the post-surgery (after treatment) effects or side effects?

A: After the surgery, your face or gums feel stiff and sore. Swelling may also cause the jaw or lips to be numb for several days. Still, there’s no need for you to worry; these symptoms will subside over time. You might also need to return to our clinic for follow ups to make sure that your implant is in good shape.

Can anyone get dental implants?

A: Most people are suitable candidate for getting dental implants if they are fit to undergo routine dental extraction or oral surgery. However, there are some pre-requisites in order to achieve optimized outcome from a dental implant. Patients must be ensured to have healthy gum and sufficient place of bone to support the dental implants. They also must be committed to good oral hygiene. Heavy smoker and people with chronic diseases should be evaluated carefully by our dentist for their candidacy.

How painful will dental implants cause?
A : Dental implant surgery is performed by making an incision in the gum, then the implant is embedded into the jawbone using a screw. Afterward, the incision in the gums is closed with stitches. However, it is unlikely to cause pain during the procedure as local anaesthetic will be used. In fact, it causes less pain than a tooth extraction.

How to take care of the dental implants?
A : You care for dental implants would be the same as you would do for your real teeth. The proper dental care includes brushing, flossing, rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash and regular dental check-ups. No special care is required for dental implant.

Are Tooth Implants more expensive than Dentures?

A: Although the initial cost is high, implants are semi-permanent; thus, they are actually cheaper because no additional cost is incurred. In contrast, although the initial cost of dentures is lower than that of implant, additional cost may be incurred later.
