What is a Tooth Implant

A tooth implant is used to replace a missing tooth. Its posts act as a new tooth root with a false tooth called the crown attached onto the post. The crown is glued with an abutment that holds the crowns. The abutment is an interconnection component that enables your dentist to securely glue or screw the crown onto your implant post.

What is a tooth implant made of ?

A tooth implant is therefore made of 3 component parts:

  1. Implant post : tooth root replacement that needs to fuse to your jaw bone
  2. Abutment : component part that connects the false tooth to the implant
  3. Crown : false tooth

When do you need an tooth implant?

A tooth implant is done if you have a missing tooth or if you need to remove your existing tooth.

There are various implant methodologies. For some cases, you may be able to remove the current damaged tooth and have the implant post put in during the same surgical removal visit. This is known as an immediate implant or same day implants.

At a some future period, usually about 6 months and more, the provisional prostheses on your teeth-in-a-day implants is normally replaced with a more permament prostheses.

Which dental implant procedure is for me?

Conventional dental implants is an established and ideal implant procedure to opt for. Survival rate and success for conventional implants are founded and clinical studies has shown high surival rates over time. This is because healing time is left to ensure each stage of treatment is secure and stable before moving on to the next phase.

With conventional implants, time is permitted to have any infection in the site area to clear off. For cases that require bone grafts, your implantologist can check that there is indeed sufficient bone before proceeding with implant post treatment. Soft and hard tissues are ensured to be healthy with good success rates. After implant placement, your prosthodontist checks that the impant post is locked tightly to your bone before a false tooth is loaded.

The downside of conventional implants are that dental implant treatment completion is lengthy. The traditional implant process requires several steps and perhaps more visits for checks and re-checks.

If treatment time is a concern factor for you, please do highlight this to your implantologist. Your dental specialists at BIDH dental implant clinic can then make assessments if same day or immediate function implants may be appropriate for your case. If same day and teeth in a day implants is required, a better implant quality specifications may recommended to potentially enhance success and survival rates of your treatment.

The final success of your implant treatment do however depend on factors such as oral and medical conditions, personal biting habits as well as your care during and after implant placement. The type of range of implants may also play some factor on implant healing.

What is the Cost of dental Implant crowns?

For conventional implants, the costs of dental implants is divided into 2 phases :

  1. First phase : implant post placement with healing abutment
  2. Second phase : false tooth (crown) placed over the dental implant post

After first phase, your implant post is normally left to heal for about about 2 to 6 months. This so the implant post surfaces and integrate and fuse with your jaw bone called osseointegration. If you require bone grafts, the healing period may be longer to ensure your your implant post is securely healed and stable. During the second phase the false tooth (crown) with an abutment is made. The crown with abutment is then permamently screwed or glued onto the implant post.

If you have a single missing gap but there are in separate areas. For example, one of the upper left, one of the lower right, 2 seperate dental implant crown will be required. To get the total costs on the dental implant treatment, you will simply  multiple per implant by number of implant required.
