Dental bone grafting is a technique that adds bone, and therefore structural support, to your jaw. This allows dental implants to be fixed in place; where without the grafts there would not be enough bone to support the implant.
We’ll keep you up to date on the latest findings, trends and insights in the dental industry.
Natural-looking regular dental implants have become a popular alternative to conventional dentures and bridges – on the grounds of aesthetics, comfort and convenience.
Mini dental implants can give you all these benefits as well, while providing an option when standard implants may not be possible.
Mini dental implants provide an implant option if you want a less invasive procedure than regular dental implants.
And if you don’t have enough bone in your jaw to take a standard implant, mini implants do away with the need for a bone graft.
In this article we’ll cover everything you need to know about getting mini dental implants in Singapore.
Generally, same-day dental implants provide patients with a temporary dental prosthesis immediately during the same visit after having the damaged tooth extracted and dental implant fixture (screw portion of the dental implant that is screwed into the jaw) placed.
The benefits of same-day dental implants over conventionally placed implants are very clear. You won’t have to wear a removable denture to hide missing teeth and the same-day dental implant process requires the least number of visits to the dentist.
If you’re considering getting dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth in your upper jaw, a procedure called a sinus lift may be necessary if you lack sufficient bone mass in your upper jaw to hold dental implants securely.
If you find yourself in that situation, you’ll want to know a lot about sinus lifts – a procedure you’ve probably never heard of before.
Even if you currently have a full set of healthy upper teeth, you might still be curious about sinus lifts – given that tooth loss among older people in Singapore is prevalent.
Dental implants have become the tooth replacement system of choice for many people in Singapore missing one or more teeth.
The popularity of implants lies in their aesthetic and practical advantages over other methods of dealing with tooth loss.
However, because implants are relatively new in the dental world, it’s understandable that patients often have many questions about them.
Here, you’ll find answers to five dental implant questions patients are always asking us.
Dental implants may be the gold standard to replacing teeth but they’re not without their downsides. Dental bridges and dentures are great alternatives to dental implants.
If you’re looking for a non-surgical solution for your missing teeth. Then you might want to consider trying a dental bridge or some dentures.
Lack of understanding about wisdom tooth surgery can result in unfounded concerns about the procedure. From our experience as a dental clinic in Singapore, we know that patients typically have many questions about extraction of these often-troublesome back teeth.
Here’s a guide about wisdom tooth surgery in Singapore.
Our dentists usually advise our patients to remove their wisdom teeth if they are present and impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth are teeth at the back of the mouth that do not have sufficient room to emerge or develop properly.
This results in wisdom teeth that may only be partially erupted from the gums(partially impacted), or in more severe cases, teeth may never break through the gums (fully impacted).
Dental implants and dental bridges are two very different forms of treatment which allow patients to replace one or more missing teeth. They’re two solutions which patients usually compare before getting onboard with either system.
Understanding which tooth replacement solutions is better suited for your case will determine the long-term success of your treatment.
Are you missing one or more teeth and wondering about the best tooth replacement solution? Dental implants replicate the function of a natural tooth and can last for a lifetime, making them the preferred choice for many patients. On the other hand, dental implants cost considerably more than dentures and may not be suitable for some people.
