What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gums, serving as a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. This innovative solution offers a permanent base for fixed (permanent) or removable dental prosthetics designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants are titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots, providing a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone over a few months, a process known as osseointegration. This creates a stable base for attaching the new tooth (or teeth), which will look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Most people in good general health and with sufficient jawbone to support implants can be considered for dental implants. However, certain conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes, cancer, radiation to the jaw, smoking, alcoholism, or uncontrolled periodontal (gum) disease, may require additional evaluation. A thorough examination and consultation with Dr. Justin Tan will determine if dental implants are the right option for you.

The dental implant process can vary depending on several factors, including the health of your jawbone, the type of implants being placed, and whether any preparatory procedures (such as bone grafting) are needed. Generally, the process can take from several months to over a year. This includes the initial consultation, surgery to place the implant, the healing period, and the placement of the crown or prosthetic tooth.

Most patients report that the discomfort is minimal, especially when compared to the extraction of a tooth. Local anaesthesia is used during the procedure to minimise pain, and sedation options are available for patients who may feel anxious. Post-operative discomfort can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and is usually less intense than patients expect.

Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth, which includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and regular dental check-ups and cleanings. Although implants cannot get cavities, the gums around them can become inflamed or infected without proper hygiene. Dr. Tan and our team will provide you with specific care instructions and recommendations to ensure the longevity of your implants.

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. The crown or prosthetic part of the implant may need replacement due to wear and tear, typically after 10 to 15 years. However, the longevity of the implant itself is significantly influenced by good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits.
