Dental Implants Singapore: Restoring Your Smile with Precision. Book Your Implant Treatment Now

What Are Dental Implants and How Do They Work?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth, bridge or denture. They are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material, meaning it can fuse with the jawbone without causing any adverse reactions.

The implant itself acts as an anchor for the replacement tooth, providing stability and preventing bone loss in the jaw. This makes them a popular choice for those looking to restore their smile with a long-lasting solution.

Dental Implants Singapore

Types of Dental Restorations We Provide and Their Benefits

Implants are commonly placed to replace teeth with crowns and bridges, but are also becoming more common place in improving denture wear experience. 

Inserting implants can reduce the need to shave down nature teeth compared to traditional bridge restorations, and can improve retention and stability in cases where there is a lack of sound teeth to support the dentures.

Implant Over Denture

Implant over dentures is a type of removable denture that is supported by dental implants. They offer more stability compared to traditional dentures, as they are attached to the implants with precision attachments.

This helps prevent movement and slippage while eating or speaking, providing a more comfortable and secure option for those who have lost multiple teeth.

For patients who have lost their teeth for too long, a consequential loss of bone height can also make traditional dentures impossible to use. Especially in the lower jaw, where a pronounced loss of bone can mean pain and inability to chew, implant over dentures provide an excellent treatment of last resort.

Implant Supported Bridges for a Lasting Smile

Implant supported bridges are a popular choice for those who have lost multiple teeth in a row. This procedure involves placing two or more implants in the jawbone to support a bridge, which consists of artificial teeth attached to a metal framework.

Implant supported bridges look, feel, and function like natural teeth, providing a more permanent and comfortable solution compared to traditional partial dentures

Single Tooth Dental Implants

This procedure is a popular choice for those who have lost a single tooth due to injury or decay. It provides a permanent and aesthetically pleasing solution that looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

For teeth that have been subjected to cracks and fractures, a single implant replacement can be a more predictable and straight forward restorative option.

Lie-not Philosophy

We do not reuse prosthesis that have been inserted into patients. All components, including healing abutments, are tagged to patients specifically, and used only once.

Our Dental Implant Procedures

Initial Consultation and Treatment Plan

During your initial consultation at Toothsmith, our dentists will assess your oral health and discuss your treatment goals with you. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have.

Based on this evaluation, we will create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your individual needs and preferences. We will also provide you with a breakdown of the costs involved, so you can make an informed decision about your treatment.

Implant Placement: A Step-by-Step Process

The implant placement procedure is typically done in several stages. First, the implants are surgically placed into the jawbone.

Once the implants have fused with the bone, usually within 3 – 4 months, a healing abutment is placed to guide tissue regeneration. 

A digital scan or physical mould is then taken, after 2-3 weeks, before the final crown is issued.

Testimonials From Our Patients

  • Avatar Kris Kang ★★★★★ 3 months ago
    I stopped smoking recently and decided to get rid of the unsightly tobacco stains on my teeth.
    My search on social media led me to Toothsmith and the positive reviews I saw helped me decide to go with them.
    To be honest, I am not a big
    … More fan of visiting the dentist. Imagine my huge relief when Dr Shaun put me at ease almost immediately. He was calm, patient and thorough during the process. I am 100% satisfied with the results and will continue with Toothsmith for all my dental needs.
  • Avatar Raman Kaushik ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Highly impressed by Dr. consultation. Doctor was very patient, understanding and took time to explain things and possible conditions. I just had some pain near my wisdom tooth and thought I might have to get it extracted, however Doctor … More explained that it is not a wisdom tooth pain and I Dont need a surgery. His explanation just made a lot of sense and it came as a surprise because the other Dentist outlets pushed me to have a surgery when it is not even needed.Appreciate the honesty and transparency by the Doctor. Kudos to you.
  • Avatar JSherman ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Wonderful and extremely pleasant experience with Dr Shaun and his very friendly and professional staff! I had a filling replaced and Dr Shaun was both attentive and meticulous. He even took the trouble and effort to explain the possible … More future repercussion of the replacement filling due to its position. Thank you once again to Dr Shaun and his staff! 🙂
  • Avatar Ah Kun ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    My wife and I have this running joke every since she asked me the following question on my appointment day:-Her: wa why you ironing your shirt? (ie. why dress so nice)Me: coz I'm seeing Dr Shaun today 😊-----------------Her: wa new … More jeans ah?Me: coz going to see Dr Shaun ☺️-----------------All jokes aside. Thanks dr shaun. Very good technical skills. Altho I shifted house but still coming back on regular basis to this outlet.

    Absolutely amazing dentists and service
  • Avatar Larry Tan ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Just had a scaling/cleaning session done yesterday by Dr Shaun and I must say he is hands down one of the best dentist I've met in so many years of dental experience. He was patient, clear and precise in his explanations of what he … More was doing and also his recommendations of what I needed done in future. I was due for another session today but unfortunately something came up and couldn't make the appointment but I will definitely be back here for my next treatment. Thank you for your professionalism Doctor!
  • Avatar Joel Low ★★★★★ a year ago
    Moved houses a year back but have been returning nonetheless for my regular cleaning.
    Friendly staff, professional demeanor, not pushy with their treatments.
    Only issue can be a slight wait time even with appointment (esp if your appointment
    … More is at the end of the day and patients in the day snowball).
    Give it a try! (or not because my wait time will get longer 😂)
  • Avatar Yew Yong ★★★★★ a year ago
    Have been frequenting Toothsmith for the past 3 years and they have been exceptional with service and professionalism. I just had my Wisdom Tooth Extraction done and it was a pretty seamless, painless experience. Thank you and keep up the … More great service!
  • Avatar Seet Matthew ★★★★★ a year ago
    Decided to visit the clinic for scaling and polishing based on the reviews I've seen, and managed to convince my elderly mum who hasn't been to the dentist for years to do the same.
    We were attended to by the same dentist, Dr.
    … More Shaun Ng Rui, who was extremely professional and friendly. Despite knowing that we were on CHAS subsidies, the personnel at the clinic showed zero prejudice towards us. Dr. Shaun was even kind enough to offer my mum some discounts as she was very reluctant to spend money on certain procedures.
    After returning home, my mum experienced severe pain due to the misunderstanding of some instructions, as well as her reluctance to extract a second tooth (which Dr. Shaun had earlier advised her to extract). We returned to the clinic at about 9pm, and again, she was served by Dr. Shaun and the staff with the same courteous and friendly demeanor (even though they were about to close). Dr. Shaun and his assistant then very patiently explained to my mum and me the reasons why she was experiencing pain. Although not obligated to do so, Dr. Shaun, upon sensing my mum's reluctance to extract the infected tooth, made the decision to extract the tooth and prescribe stronger painkillers for free.
    Then, almost an hour after we returned home, the clinic once again called to advise us regarding the use of the medication.
    All in all, it was a superb experience and I have no regrets taking my mum and myself there for dental care. Would highly recommend it to everyone! Thank you Dr. Shaun and team!

    The staff are friendly and polite. A happy clinic to visit each time.

Frequently Asked Questions

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene, and a healthy lifestyle contribute to the longevity of dental implants.

Yes, dental implants are a safe and well-established dental procedure. Our experienced dental specialists in Singapore follow rigorous protocols to ensure safety during the implant procedure, and the materials used are biocompatible, minimizing any risk of adverse reactions.

During the procedure, you’ll be under local anaesthesia, so you won’t feel any pain. After the surgery, you may experience mild discomfort, but this can be managed with prescribed medications and typically subsides within a few days.

The initial healing period after dental implant surgery ranges from a few days to a week. However, complete osseointegration, where the implant fully integrates with the jawbone, may take several months. During this time, you can usually resume your normal activities while following post-operative care instructions.

Dental implants are designed to look and feel like natural teeth. The crown that is placed on the implant is customized to match the colour, shape, and size of your existing teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance.
