Research has shown that dental implants improve one’s quality of life
Benefits of Dental Implants
Replaces missing teeth
Maintains the bone height and thickness at the site where teeth have been lost
It looks and feels like a natural tooth
Unlike removable dentures which move during eating, a dental implant is fixed, allowing you to eat, speak and smile without fear of it dropping halfway
Unlike a bridge which requires trimming of neighbouring teeth to provide support, a dental implant is supported by bone and does not require sacrificing any neighbouring teeth
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do dental implants last and what is their success rate?
For a healthy patient with good oral hygiene and who is a non smoker, the success rate of dental implants is above 90-95%
Dental implants can last a lifetime if they are well taken care of. As dental implants are made of titanium, they do not decay like natural teeth. However they depend on the health of the surrounding bone and gums. Hence it is important to follow up with good home care and regular professional cleanings and check-ups.
