types of dental implants

Implant-Supported Crown

If you have a missing or failing tooth, a single dental tooth implant replacement has great benefits over the alternative options of a bridge or denture.

Implant-Supported bridge

If you are missing more than one tooth in a row, the gap can be replaced with individual implants or by joining a few implants together to hold a bridge.

Implant-Supported Hybrid Bridge

If you are missing all your teeth and thinking of a fixed solution where you no longer have to remove your denture to clean, the implant-supported hybrid denture is an excellent option.

Implant-Retained Denture

If you are missing all your teeth in a jaw and are losing confidence socially due to an unstable denture, this is a cost-effective option of replacing all your teeth. The denture is held firmly in place with a minimum of 2 of 4 implants.

Dental Implant Procedure

01

Initial Consultation

The pre-procedure consultation would include a thorough assessment of your gum and jaw bone health. The dentist will also get to know your medical history and point out any potential challenges for the implant.

02

Treatment Planning

The initial stable connection to the bone, known as the primary stability, is already established at the moment of implantation. During the healing phase – the weeks after the implantation – increasing numbers of bone growth cells attach to the implant surface.

03

placement of implants

The part of the gum in which the implant is to be placed is cut and lifted. A small hole is drilled in the jawbone at the precise location of the intended implant. The implant is then tightly fitted into this socket before the gum is stitched back over the implant.

dental implants faq

The clear aligners do a similar job to the traditional metal braces (but they’re transparent and much more comfortable). The aim of the aligners is to gently put force on the teeth so that the alignment of one or more is changed. Each aligner is designed specifically for the patient and to address their particular problem area. Depending on the progress being made, aligners will have to be changed every few weeks to continue getting teeth into the actual position that they need to be in.
Wearing Invisalign aligners correctly is probably the most important factor for the effectiveness of your treatment. As per general recommendations, you have to wear aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. You can take the aligners off to eat, drink and have them properly cleaned. When done, however, do put the aligners back on. Also, keep in mind that the use of a retainer after you’re done with your aligner is an essential to help your teeth maintain the brand new position.

The short answer is no. Some people could experience a bit of discomfort over the first few days of each treatment stage. This is normal. The feeling, however, isn’t painful – most people describe it as pressure. This pressure means that your Invisalign aligners are doing their job and getting teeth closer to their correct position. 

Yes! In fact, dentists who with Invisalign in Singapore often get such cases.

A medical-grade thermoplastic material is used to give you custom aligners that are precisely shaped for your mouth and for the specifics of the problem you’re attempting to address.
