Frequently asked questions

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a strong, small post made from biocompatible metals or ceramics. It comprises three key components: the dental implant itself, the abutment and the crown.

The dental implant, resembling a tiny titanium screw, is surgically placed into the jawbone under local anesthesia. It is designed to serve as a replacement for a natural tooth root, bonding with the bone. This process sets the foundation to replace missing teeth. Once in place securely, the dental implant may support one or more replacement teeth, referred to as crowns.

The abutment is a connector fixed on or within the top of the dental implant. It serves as a linking point and offers additional support for the crown.

The crown (replacement tooth) is custom-made to replicate the appearance, shape, and fit of other natural teeth. It is then affixed to the abutment, completing the tooth replacement process.

What does the procedure involve, and how long does it take?

The dental implant procedure typically follows a set of standard steps and requires a few visits to complete.  Initially, a qualified dental professional conducts a thorough assessment, including reviewing the patient's history, performing a dental examination, and discussing a comprehensive treatment plan. Since each patient is unique, the overall treatment duration varies based on individual needs, medical and dental history, jawbone health, and the chosen technique and materials. The timeframe can range from a few months to over a year, for more complex cases.

The next stage involves the placement of the dental implant under local anesthesia. After this surgical procedure, patients need time to heal before proceeding to the restoration phase. During the healing period, typically lasting from a few weeks to a few months, it is crucial to maintain good oral hygiene. This time allows for the bone around the dental implant to grow and fuse with the implant surface, a process known as osseointegration. For support during the healing phase, a temporary restoration may be affixed to the dental implant at the time of surgery. Ask your dentist for more detailed information on the benefits and risks of dental implant treatment.

Once adequate healing has taken place, an impression of the dental implant site is taken by the dental professional. This impression is sent to a dental laboratory where a custom-fitted crown (or bridge for multiple teeth replacement) is crafted to fit the patient's mouth precisely. After fabrication, the crown or bridge is then securely installed.

How should I take care of my dental implants?

Both patients and the dental teams of our listed clinics play pivotal roles the long-term success of dental implant procedures. Our partnered clinics will create personalized oral care plans for each patient and provide tailored advice on effective cleaning methods depending on the specific treatment received. Much like caring for natural teeth, dental implants can accumulate tartar, emphasizing the importance of diligent oral care for the sustained success of your new teeth. Here are essential long-term care instructions:

Use a soft toothbrush (replace regularly) or an electric toothbrush for thorough teeth cleaning.

Employ recommended cleaning aids, such as interdental brushes or irrigation devices, to clean the gaps between teeth.

Brush teeth meticulously on all sides, including the inside, outside, and the top surfaces where chewing takes place.

Regular check-ups and preventive visits to the dentist are indispensable for maintaining the health of your new teeth.

Is dental implant surgery painful?

Like in any surgical procedure, there are risks and you may experience discomfort during and after dental implant surgery. It is important to note that each patient's healing process is unique. Your surgeon will collaborate with you before, during, and after the surgery to help you feel as comfortable as possible. 

What is the lifespan of dental implants and are they a reliable option?

When well taken care of, dental implants are designed to endure for numerous years, and in many cases, more than decades. Dentists have been successfully utilizing dental implants for replacing missing teeth for a considerable period, and advancements in technology only enhance their durability. Ask your dentist for more detailed information on the benefits and risks of dental implant treatment.

Why should I choose dental implants?

Whether you need to replace one tooth or multiple teeth, our selected clinics present a range of products designed to give your replacement a natural look and feel. Your dentist is your best resource for exploring the tooth replacement options that suit your individual needs. Feel free to start a conversation with TeethToday concierge service to get the support from your personal dental implant consultant

Are dental implants a good choice compared to removable dentures?

Dental implants offer significant advantages over traditional solutions like dentures and removable appliances. They closely resemble the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. Moreover, they are designed to prevent bone loss that can occur when tooth roots are missing and do not necessitate altering adjacent teeth. 

• Dental implants are designed to seamlessly integrate with your body: Unlike prosthetics, a dental implant is an artificial root that, once healed, moulds with your body, behaving just like a natural root.

• Preservation of facial structure: Dental implants,designed to firmly anchor in the bone, effectively transmit chewing forces, are engineered to promote a healthy jaw and preserve facial structure. 

• Maintenance of your smile: Dental implants are designed to closely restore missing teeth without any visible difference, enhancing both functionality and appearance. 

• Comfort in daily activities: Dental implants are designed to closely mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, providing comfort while speaking, smiling, and eating. 

Like every surgical procedure, dental implant procedure also has risks. Ask your dentist for more detailed information on the benefits and risks of dental implant treatment.

What happens if I choose not to replace my tooth?

When a tooth is lost and not replaced, the bone that once supported the tooth may diminish as it no longer serves a purpose. This can result in bone loss around nearby teeth, potentially causing harm to these adjacent teeth. 

Are there any potential risks associated with dental implant?

As with all surgical procedures, there are risks to be aware of when considering dental implants. The most common problem is infection (peri- implantitis) that can affect the gums and the jawbone, but it is also possible for the dental implant to not fuse with the jawbone properly. Your dentist will plan treatment to minimise the risks. It is also important that you look after your implants with good oral hygiene.

Disclaimer 1: Every surgical procedure carries potential risks. You should always consult with a dental professional prior to treatment. Potential risk factors may vary depending on medical or other conditions of each patient. The possibility of immediate placement and the use of a prosthetic tooth depends on many factors, such as bone presence and quality, dental history, implant location, and availability of the final restoration. Your clinician will fully describe the possible scenarios to you during consultation prior to surgery.  Consult your clinician to find out if dental implants are right for you.
