Dental Implants | What Are They ?

Missing or damaged teeth is certainly no fun! With dental implants, you can have a smile that always looks as good as your natural teeth.

In addition, dental implants provide significantly better long-term value than conventional options for replacing missing or damaged teeth.

There are several different types of dental implants, but most can be broken down into three main components: Crowns, Titanium Abutments, and Implant Fixtures.

A metal fixture will be inserted into the patient’s upper or lower jaw during dental implant surgery, replacing the root of their tooth. After a few months, this fixture bonds with their surrounding bone, enabling them to function normally after the implant surgery. In short, dental implants provide both natural looking and functional replacement for teeth that are lost.

Dental Implant Benefits

Dental implants are the gold standard when it comes to replacing missing or damaged teeth in Malaysia and around the world. Dental implants offer patients a wide range of benefits with minimal downsides over the longer time.

Comfortable & Natural

Behaves Like Natural Teeth

A major benefit of dental implants is that they restore full chewing power. In most cases, patients are unable to tell the difference between their natural and implant teeth. Besides eating with it with ease, they can also brush their teeth and floss their teeth normally with dental implants.

Long-lasting & Reliable

Can Last a Lifetime

Unlike dental bridges, which may last as little as ten years, dental implants last a lifetime. The titanium implant integrates with the jawbone. As dental implants are also bio-compatible, it’s completely non-toxic and would not be rejected by your body even after a long period of time.

Speak Better, Feel Better

Enables Speaking Naturally

Dentures and other tooth replacement options can impact your ability to pronounce words correctly. Speech can also be affected by missing teeth. However, since dental implants are just like natural teeth, they make speaking easy and natural and does not impair speech in any way so you can sound exactly the way you were before you lost your teeth.

Improved Facial Features

Prevents Bone Loss

In the absence of teeth, the jawbone deteriorates because of lack of stimulation. The bone area in the area of a lost tooth loses 25% of its volume if no implant is placed after the tooth is lost. The bone loss continues advancing over time. It is even possible for dentures to accelerate bone loss, since they tend to become loose and rub against the bony ridge, eventually wearing away the material. Since a dental implant replaces not only the tooth but also its root, restoring chewing to normal, it stimulates bone growth by replacing the root plus the tooth.

Improved Ability to ChewImproved Ability to Chew

Keeps Adjacent Teeth Stable

It is possible for nearby teeth to shift crookedly towards a gap where a tooth has been lost. You can experience problems with your bite, chewing, and appearance when your teeth are pulled out of alignment. This also makes tooth replacement more difficult and challenging later. The TMJ (temporomandibular joint) may also be affected by a poor bite, resulting in headaches and pain.

High Success Rate

Prevents Premature Aging & Facial Sagging

A missing tooth can cause facial sagging, which can interfere with social interactions. This is where a gradual reduction in the distance between the nose tip and the chin occurs in the lower third of the face. During this time, excess wrinkles may appear around the mouth, the lips can thin, and the chin may become more pointed, giving the appearance of someone who is much older than they are.

Types of Dental Implants

There are different types of dental implants. Depending on the treatment plan recommended by your dentist, dental implants can be placed within a day or the treatment can take longer, sometimes even a few months. There is no need to worry, as your dentist will guide you through the procedure and recommend the most suitable type of dental implant for your needs and requirements after assessing your condition.

single tooth dental implant

Single Tooth Dental Implant

Single-tooth dental implants are the most commonly used type of dental implant. Single-tooth implants replace the roots of a single tooth. In this procedure, the adjacent teeth are not affected. This dental implant solution is usually used when a patient is missing only one or a few teeth. Unlike other restorations, a single-tooth implant replaces your entire missing tooth from root to crown.
If you are missing one or more teeth that are not adjacent to each other, a single-tooth implant may be the best option.

implant supported bridge

Implant Supported Bridge

A bridge usually consists of two crowns on either side of the missing tooth space and an artificial tooth held by these crowns in between.
However, in an implant-supported bridge, the crowns are not attached to the teeth, but to dental implants.
The procedure is similar to that of a dental implant for a single tooth. However, the teeth that are missing from the centre of the gap do not receive a dental implant.
The advantages of an implant-supported bridge are that you can replace multiple missing teeth in a row – without the cost of replacing each tooth individually.

implant retained bridge

Implant Retained Denture

A denture is an artificial arch of teeth. It rests on your gums and gives you the appearance of a complete set of teeth. The problem with traditional dentures is that they are removable. This means that they can slip, slide, rattle, fall out, and make everyday tasks like eating and speaking difficult.
To solve this problem, you can permanently attach your dentures with dental implants customised by Dental Implant Clinic Kuala Lumpur.

Dental Implant Process

Our Dental Implant treatment procedure normally comprises of these key stages:

Initial Consultation

1. Initial Dental Consultation

This initial evaluation involves X-rays, taking impressions, and matching the color of your teeth to the dental implant prosthesis. The dental implant procedure is then determined based on the condition of your jawbone and the best dental implant procedure. If you require any tooth extraction, it would also be discussed at this point.

Dental Implant Cost

2. Inserting the Dental Implant & Bone Grafting

Depending on your jawbone structure and strength, you may or may not require any additional bone grafting. The strength of your jawbone is important to the success of your newly placed dental implant. If you do require some extra bone grafting, it would typically be sourced from another area of your jawbone further away from the implant zone. Once the bone heals and has strengthened the implant zone, the our experienced dental surgeon from Dental Implant Clinic Kuala Lumpur would add the selected dental implant.

Single Tooth Implant

3. Abutment & Crown Placing

Once your dental implant is stable enough, our dental surgeon would place an abutment on top of the implant. This connects the implant to your crown. The abutment needs to be tightened so it stays in place when you eat. A healing cap would also be placed  to keep the tissue and bone from growing overtop of the abutment. After your gums have healed, your dentist would make your artificial tooth or crown. You can choose to have a removable implant or a permanent one. The removable option gives you the choice to clean and replace if needed.
