Implant provides a fixed option for patients to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Implant is gaining popularity over the years because it provides a conservative option for patients with missing teeth.

Implant is usually made of Titanium and shaped like a screw. Once it is placed, the implant will take several months to integrate with the jaw bone. In some cases, we may even delay the placement of crowns or bridges on the implants to let it fuse with the body.

Implant has various restorative functions. It can be used for a single tooth replacement or bridges on implants to replace multiple missing teeth. It also helps to improve stability for patients with full denture.

Dental Implants have been used in Dentistry for over 40 years. There is long term well established scientific research to support the effectiveness of dental implants. Implant has proven to be well tolerated by the human body with appropriate oral hygiene and general health. Therefore, it is important for patients to maintain good oral hygiene and attend regular dental visits after having dental implants.

At what age should I bring my child to the dentist?

We recommend parents to bring their child in for their first visit when their first tooth has come through. This will allow the kid to get used to the dental environment and enjoy a ride in the chair. Our goal is to establish a comfortable and pleasant experience for the child and establish a good impression from a young age, so that we can help guide them towards looking after their oral hygiene together.
