      How do I know whether I am suitable for mini dental implants?

      Mini dental implants are suitable for you if you fit the following conditions:

      • No gum disease
      • Are a healthy individual
      • Have sufficient bone in the area that you intend to place mini dental implants
      • Do not have any bite conditions
      • Are not taking long-term medications
      • Are not taking blood thinning medications

      We highly recommend heading to an experienced dental implant dentist for a pre-assessment to evaluate your suitability for the mini dental implants procedure.


      Why are mini dental implants cheaper than traditional dental implants?

      The cost of mini dental implants are cheaper than traditional dental implants for the following reasons:

      • The screw of the mini dental implant is smaller than that of the traditional dental implant, thus costing less
      • The procedure is easier
      • Bone grafting is not required

      To get a good estimate on the costs required for your needs or find out whether you are suitable for mini dental implants, book a consultation with us.


      How much do mini dental implants typically cost?

      The costs of mini dental implants can range from SGD500 – SGD1,500 before Medisave subsidy. The total costs can vary depending on the following factors:

      • How experienced the dental surgeon is
      • How complex the dental implant case is
      • The number of mini dental implants required

      If you are considering mini dental implants, it might be wise to book a consultation to find out whether you are suitable for mini dental implants before making a decision.


      Is there a dental implant specialist that I can go to?

      There is no such thing as a dental implant specialist. The closest that you will get to a specialist, is a dental surgeon who has gone for rigorous one-year implantology training. To find a dental surgeon who can fit your needs and requirements, it is highly recommended to do the following:

      • Look out for the qualifications of the dental surgeon. Has the dental surgeon undergone training to do dental implants?
      • Look out for the experience of the dental surgeon. Has the dental surgeon been performing implant surgery for months or years?
      • Ask for previous dental implants cases that the dental surgeon has performed. Do they meet your expectations?

      Dental implant surgery should not be taken lightly. A good dental implant surgeon will be able to guide you through the process and ensure that you receive the care and final results that you expect.


      How long do mini dental implants last?

      Your mini dental implants are designed and created to be a permanent teeth replacement solution.

      However, while the mini dental implant itself is designed to be permanent, the crown that is attached to it might need to be replaced from normal wear and tear. The lifespan will depend on the following factors: 

      • Your oral hygiene
      • Your dental maintenance habits
      • Your consumption habits


      Can I remove my mini dental implants for dental implants?

      Yes, it is possible to remove your mini dental implants if they have failed. Failed mini dental implants can be due to the following reasons:

      • Surgical incompetence
      • Infection
      • Unsuccessful osseointegration period
      • Too much movement during the healing process
      • Too much force on the implant
      • Loose implant

      If you suspect that your mini dental implants have failed, book a consultation with us to address them as soon as possible.
