Implants start from $2.2 for a single tooth that includes:
A dental implant is made of artificial biocompatible material that is placed in your jaw bone through a surgical procedure. The component inserted in the bone is called a fixture. After the initial healing period, an abutment that resembles the missing teeth is placed. The implant surgery can be performed in a single step surgical procedure or with two steps surgical procedure
The dentist at Meiplus Dentalcare Singapore will examine your entire mouth during your consultation, including your teeth, jaw, gums, soft tissues, and your occlusion.(the way your teeth bite together)
You can discuss all the treatment options with us, including the advantages and disadvantages of each, and we can give you detailed information about your treatment.Temporary tooth replacement can also be arranged so there will be no gap visible during your treatment. (Includes denture)
A dental implant placement can either be a one-step or two-step procedure. For the one-step procedure, the abutment or healing cap is placed along with the implant.Implants are placed in the bone and then the gums are covered over during the 2 step process.
In place of traditional impressions, a digital scan is taken using an intraoral scanner.To achieve a natural appearance, porcelains and ceramics are layered using several shades.
During development, a highly resilient condition called periodontal ligament and jawbone is responsible for anchoring your natural teeth.The roots of your teeth prevent the bone from resorbing by stimulating it.Due to the loss of stimulation, when you lose your teeth, your bone density will also decrease immediately (through your dentist).Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants help maintain bone mass and prevent bone loss since they are embedded into the bone.
Dental implants come in many different shapes, sizes, textures, and materials.In accordance with the needs of your mouth, your dentist will design a dental implant that is customized for you.Artificial teeth are made so they closely match your natural teeth.The only people who will know you have dental implants are you and your dentist!
When you have dentures placed, your dentist will usually give you a laundry list of aftercare tips, including avoiding biting down on hard foods to ensure balance and stability.This can also apply to dental implants.By using these, you can chew with more or less the same amount of force that you would use with your natural teeth.
The teeth support the structure of your face.As your teeth fall out, your cheek muscles begin to sag and your face becomes sunken or "old-looking".As dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, they contribute to preserving the youthful appearance of your face.
We can capture a 3D image of your teeth using a digital intraoral scanner while you relax and watch them emerge on the screen. Your teeth can then be recreated using intelligent software that combines technology with bio-engineering.
Abutment and crown type and shape will determine the success and longevity of your treatment and the aesthetics and functional results you wish to achieve.
Custom abutments are made by a dental laboratory. The restorative dentist captures the position of the implant and the shape of the surrounding gum tissue by taking an impression. The laboratory then fabricates an abutment that resembles the emergence and shape of a natural tooth. The custom abutment will fit on the implant and supports the gum tissue similar to a natural tooth.

In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. Also, they must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
All of this drilling and screwing may sound painful, but you’ll be comforted to know that placing an implant is easier than taking a tooth out. Usually a local anesthetic is used, which means you are awake during the surgery.
You shouldn’t feel any pain during the surgery, especially if it is done with healthy tissue. Also, the bone where the implant is placed does not have many pain-sensing nerves. But if you’re very nervous about the surgery, you have sedative options to make you more comfortable during the operation.
Dental implants can last a lifetime. The crown that goes on top may need replacing after 10 to 15 years through wear and tear.
