Dental Implants are surgical-grade titanium screws that act as the root portion of the normal tooth which support permanent tooth prosthetics that are meant to last a lifetime. These artificial roots are placed in the bone. A crown is placed atop the implant for a long-lasting and natural looking smile.
Implants perform the same functions as natural teeth and they also help in preventing bone atrophy in the jaw. Dental implants may be used to replace a missing or damaged tooth in order to restore a perfect smile. It is the most ideal form of restoring a gap in your teeth or providing support for stabilising your dentures.
Factors To Be Considered For Dental Implants
- Patient’s medical history/oral hygiene
- The implant procedure requires minor surgery (which is a Medisave deductible procedure) for affixing the crown to provide the functions and aesthetics of a tooth.
Tooth replacement can boost your speaking confidence on a practical level as well as facilitate your eating.
Know the Approach Your Dentist Takes
The success of the implant will also depend on the comprehensive approach to the dental care procedure. Your dentist will have a thorough discussion with you prior to any procedure.
Success Rate of Dental Implants
The success rate of dental implants differs according to the exact location of the emplaced implants. However, dental implants generally have a reported success rate of up to 98%. With proper dental care and oral hygiene, implants can last a lifetime.
