Dental Implants

We can replace missing teeth with implants for people of all ages with esthetic and predictable results. Dental implants have become a choice treatment option for many patients who are missing one or more teeth. A dental implant is a replacement tooth “root” constructed of medical grade titanium. Visit us today to see if dental implants are right for you.


Implant treatment at Sri Sinar Dental Clinic is done by an experienced visiting oral surgeon/implantologist.

An Introduction to Implants

A beautiful smile not only enhances your overall appearance but can also have an impact on your health, as your ability to chew helps to determine what you eat. Speech is also affected by the condition of your teeth. Functional and attractive teeth contribute to a better quality of life. Your teeth shape the character of your face your facial structure. Strong, healthy teeth are vital as tooth roots stimulate continuous regeneration of the bone that surrounds your face. 

Tooth Loss

Teeth are lost for many reasons, including gum disease, cavities, cracked roots and even accidents. When a tooth is lost, the bone that previously surrounded the tooth root deteriorates. Missing teeth can compromise your eating habits, speech and appearance.


Tooth loss in the front of your mouth can result in visible bone defect that is difficult to disguise, affecting the appearance of your smile. Over time missing teeth in the back of your mouth may lead to the collapse of your bite. This affects the appearance of your face, your ability to eat and even the health of your remaining teeth.


What is a dental implant?


Dental implants are screw-shaped or cylindrical root-form titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots. These are carefully placed in the jawbone and allowed to heal. During the healing phase, your bone is growing right up to the implant surface in order to lock it in place.


Shortly thereafter, a crown is made to fit on top of the implant so as to replace a missing tooth or teeth with a “brand-new” tooth. In many cases, you can be functioning on your “new” tooth on the same day as you surgery!
Dental implant treatment is the preferred method of tooth replacement. These implants replace missing tooth roots, and form a stable foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Dental implants also preserve the remaining bone by providing the stimulation previously provided by the natural tooth roots.


Dental implants offer several advantages to the patient. Unlike traditional false teeth, it isn’t necessary to grind down the adjacent teeth for a bridge or secure a partial denture to adjacent teeth with clasps.


In addition to supporting crowns and bridges, implants can also be used to secure poorly fitting dentures. By using dental implants we can eliminate the problems associated with traditional dentures. These include looseness, sore spots, trapped food and embarrassing denture slippage. In addition the biting force is increased in a more natural bite.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

They look and feel just like your own teeth

Dental implants restore your confidence to talk, laugh, and chew with comfort and without worries.

Implants preserve the integrity of facial structures

Implants prevent the hard and soft tissue collapse that can occur under conventional bridges and removable partial dentures. In patients who have lost all of their teeth, the lower one-third of the face is prone to collapse if implants are not placed to preserve the bone and the facial profile. Implants form a strong bond to the surrounding bone to provide support and anchorage for biting and chewing as well as stimulation for the bone to hold it in place.


Implant-supported crowns and bridges do not require neighbouring teeth for support. When teeth are replaced using traditional tooth-supported bridges, the teeth on either side of the missing tooth are ground down so that the bridge can be cemented onto them. This tooth structure can never be replaced. Removable partial dentures use clasps and rests which have to be carved onto adjacent teeth. As the partial rocks back and forth, it can loosen the teeth it depends on for anchorage, causing them to be lost.

Implants replace the entire tooth and the missing root so it is a free-standing restoration. This leaves more of your natural teeth untouched and free of restorations which save your natural teeth.

Better health and nutrition because you can eat what you want.

Patients with dentures often find themselves unable to eat certain foods, such as fruits and vegetables, which can compromise their nutrition. With dental implants, it is much easier to bite into and chew your favorite food.

Ease of cleansing

An implant supported crown can be cleaned like your other natural teeth, i.e. brushing and flossing. Cleaning under a bridge, however, requires the use of floss threaders for proper cleaning, while a partial must be taken out several times a day and scrubbed clean.

Enjoy your food

Patients who wear an upper denture often have trouble really tasting food because the roof of the mouth is covered. With implant supported replacement teeth, it is not necessary to cover the roof of the mouth, so it is possible to enjoy the taste of all your favourite food.

Eliminates the pain of ill-fitting dentures

Loose fitting dentures can be securely fastened using dental implants. This avoids embarrassing slippage of dental and removes the need for denture fixatives.
