Dental implants, also known as tooth implants, act as substitutes for missing teeth. When a tooth decays beyond repair, the best course of action is to undergo dental implant treatment.
Are you looking for an effective, long-term treatment for missing teeth?
Vivid Dental Surgeons understands the major impact a missing tooth can cause in patients lives.
In the past, most patients opted for tooth replacement methods like dentures and dental bridges. However, this type of treatment plan can cause long-term harm to neighbouring teeth.
That’s why we recommend getting a dental implant!
Here’s why we prefer dental implant surgery over dentures or dental bridges:
Most importantly, dental implants improve your entire health and well-being, from enhancing your self-esteem to increased enjoyment of food by restoring confidence in chewing.

A dental implant is made out of metal, screw-like fixtures which are secured to the jawbone through a surgical procedure done under local anaesthesia.
The highest quality dental implants are made up of titanium and attached to your jaw bone via bone grafting to prevent slippage.
Did you know that titanium implants are the most common type of dental implant in Singapore?
They look and feel the most natural, and does not compromise the integrity of adjacent structures in the mouth. Most importantly, titanium lasts long and doesn’t decay.
Are you thinking about getting a dental implant?
Not all patients can qualify for dental implant surgery; you’ll need to have healthy gums and a strong enough jaw bone for support.
Dental implants are recommended only when you
As dental implants require a lot of time to heal, the treatment process can be very lengthy.
Furthermore, once the tooth implant has been placed, proper care and maintenance of good oral hygiene are crucial for the best, long-lasting results.
Thus, if you have time to spare and can stay committed to a long treatment period, then you may be an eligible candidate for dental implants!
This is when our orthodontist will conduct a thorough dental and oral exam. This includes taking an X-ray to assess the status of your bone and jaw. During the dental implant consultation, you will also be asked for a detailed medical history.
Once the examination is complete, we will devise a customised dental implant treatment plan that accounts for individual patient factors.
The procedure of dental implant surgery is a simple outpatient one.
First, the damaged tooth is removed and the jawbone is prepared for dental implant surgery. Sometimes a bone graft will be required to maintain an adequate supporting base for the implant.
The gum is opened through a surgical incision and holes are drilled into the jawbone where the implant will eventually be placed.
A dental implant post is then placed in the jawbone and left to heal for the next few months. This is required to obtain the right size and shape of the implant that will replace the missing tooth.
Once the healing phase is completed, either a removable or a fixed tooth implant will be placed according to the patient’s preference.
Overall the procedure can take a few months to complete, but the results are fruitful and long-lasting.
Sometimes when the jawbone is unable to support the base of a dental implant, bone grafting will need to be done.
This is important because a weak jawbone can dismantle your dental implants!
So, a strong base is a prerequisite for a successful dental implant procedure.
A bone graft uses bone tissue from the hip, fibula or another part of your jaw to strengthen the jawbone. It can take a few months before the bone has grown and strengthened the jaw enough for dental implant surgery.
It is a surgical procedure to graft bone at the upper molar and premolar teeth; the maxillary sinus membrane is lifted upwards to make space for the additional bone.
Your dentist may recommend a sinus augmentation when there is insufficient bone in the upper jaw to support a dental implant.
Often, it takes about 4 to 9 months to allow the bone to fuse in its new position. By then, the patient will be ready to undergo a dental implant procedure.
The success rate of dental implant surgery is pretty high.
For the best results, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene, follow up with your dentist regularly and avoid damaging habits such as smoking or caffeinated products.
In Singapore, a single dental implant procedure can cost up to about SGD$1,250-SGD$6,000.
These prices depend on the type of dental implant used, the materials used in the implant crown, and if you require additional procedures to support your dental implants.
Furthermore, the more dental implants you need, the higher the price for your treatment.
