Dental Implants in Singapore: What You need to Know
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant/tooth implant consists of a small screw made of titanium that is placed in the jaw. A dental implant replaces the root of a missing tooth/teeth and hence serves as a sound base for the new crown or bridge. After the surgical phase of treatment, the prosthetic (crown/ bridge) phase begins: a replacement tooth/teeth in the form of a crown, bridge or denture, is placed over the implant. This completes your entire dental implant process.
So why should I have a dental implants (or tooth implants)?
Dental implants/ tooth implants are used to support crowns, bridges or over-dentures. The evidence is clear that dental implants/ tooth implants are excellent substitutes for missing natural teeth, whether it is a single tooth or multiple missing teeth.
