      FAQ

      How do I know whether I am suitable for dental implants?

      Dental implants are suitable for you if you meet the following conditions:

      • No presence of gum disease
      • Are a healthy individual
      • Have adequate bone in the area that you intend to place dental implants
      • Do not have any bite conditions
      • Are not taking long-term medications
      • Are not taking blood thinning medications

      We highly recommend heading to an experienced dentist to evaluate your suitability for the dental implants procedure.

       

      Why are dental implants so expensive?

      The cost of dental implants are highly reliant on the following factors:

      • Skill of the dental surgeon
      • The complexity of the dental implant case
      • The brand of dental implants used during the procedure
      • The material of the dental implant
      • The costs of the lab fees to model the crown and shape it to your needs

      As dental implant cases require a lot of technical skill and expertise, the costs of implants are more expensive than other dental procedures. To get a good estimate on the costs required for your needs or find out whether you are suitable for dental implants, book a consultation with us.

      How much do dental implants typically cost?

      The costs of dental implants can range from SGD2,000 – SGD6,000 before Medisave subsidy. The costs can vary depending on the following factors:

      • How experienced the dental surgeon is
      • How complex the dental implant case is
      • The brand and material of the implant used

      Dental implants can be a huge financial decision, especially when multiple dental implants are required. Before splurging on dental implants, it might be wise to book a consultation to find out whether you are suitable for dental implants.

      Is there a dental implant specialist that I can go to?

      There is no such thing as a dental implant specialist. The closest that you will get to a specialist, is a dental surgeon who has gone for rigorous two-years postgrad implantology training from the Faculty of Dentistry, NUS. To find a dental surgeon who can fit your needs and requirements, it is highly recommended to do the following:

      • Look out for the qualifications of the dental surgeon. Has the dental surgeon undergone training to do dental implants?
      • Look out for the experience of the dental surgeon. Has the dental surgeon been performing implant surgery for months or years?
      • Ask for previous dental implants cases that the dental surgeon has performed. Do they meet your expectations?

      Dental implant surgery should not be taken lightly. A good dental implant surgeon will be able to guide you through the process and ensure that you receive the care and final results that you expect.

      How long does the dental implant procedure take?

      The duration of the dental implant procedure is dependent on the complexity of the procedure, whether the patient needs bone grafting, and the general health condition of the patient. 

       

      How long do dental implants last?

      Your dental implants are designed and created to be a permanent teeth replacement solution. However, while the implant itself is designed to be permanent, the crown that is attached to it might need to be replaced from normal wear and tear. The lifespan will depend on the following factors:

       

      • Your oral hygiene
      • Your dental maintenance habits
      • Your consumption habits

      Can I remove my mini dental implants for dental implants?

      Yes, it is possible to remove your mini dental implants if they have failed. Failed mini dental implants can be due to the following reasons:

      • Surgical incompetence
      • Infection
      • Unsuccessful osseointegration period
      • Too much movement during the healing process
      • Too much force on the implant
      • Loose implant

      If you suspect that your mini dental implants have failed, book a consultation with us to address them as soon as possible.
