What to expect?

Gentle Smile Dental Studio uses titanium or ceramic to make your dental implants, which is the preferred material among Singaporean dentists.

These are surgically embedded into your jawbone.

With the latest technology, our dentists can translate information from a 3D x-ray (CBCT) and an intra-oral scan of the mouth to create a stent/surgical guide to place the dental implant in the mouth in a more controlled and predictable manner.

What Is The Structure Of A Dental Implant?

A dental implant consists of three sections.


The prosthesis is the top-most part and looks like a natural tooth.

In this case, it’s a single crown, but they can be a series of teeth (known as a bridge), or they can be dentures.

The prosthesis goes into the abutment.


The abutment is the middle part that connects the top to the bottom.

It can be made of metal, ceramics or polymers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can dental implants be done in one day?

Dental implantations almost always require follow-ups. That said, specific methods can reduce the number of major appointments. However, not every patient is a candidate for same-day implants; it depends on individual factors such as bone density, oral health, and the specific conditions of the mouth and jaw.

Most people will leave with a temporary crown over the implant and the final, permanent crown is usually fitted after several months of healing. The permanent crown allows for more biting/loading.

What do dental implants look like?

They look like a tooth but usually with a titanium root. It is made of an implant (the titanium part integrated with the jawbone), an abutment (the connector between the implant and the crown), and the crown which looks like a natural tooth.

When are dental implants medically necessary?

Dental implants are medically necessary to restore function and prevent complications from tooth loss, like bone loss and bite misalignment.

When doing dental implants, can you be put to sleep?

Most likely, localised anesthesia will be enough.

Are dental implants permissible in Islam?
