If you have lost one or more teeth, our dentists may recommend dental implants. A dental implant is a tooth restoration used to replace your missing teeth and restore the function, health, and appearance of your smile. The implant is a small screw-like post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone at the location of the missing tooth. The dental implant replaces the root of the missing tooth. During a period of healing, which typically lasts a few months, the bone will bond with the implant post, which is made of biocompatible titanium. Our periodontists have been specially trained in placing dental implants and are committed to ensuring you receive the best possible results. After the placement of the implant, it can be restored with a dental implant restoration. Based on how many teeth are missing and your personal dental needs and preferences, the implant restoration may be a dental crown, a dental bridge, a complete denture, or a partial denture. You will work closely with Drs. Li, Lim, Gee, Oo, and Sin, as well as your general dentist if needed, to determine which type of dental implant restoration is best suited to your smile.
