My $800 dental implant (Molar)

Post by The_King on 29th December 2015, 9:42 am

Went for Scaling & Polishing and also xray to check for internal tooth decay at unity denticare at AMK Hub.


guys do you this i should do a implant?

My only worry is missing molar will cause tilting(shifting) and create food debris and bacteria which will cause them to decay or other problem which i will have to remove year later.



the dentist told me i have enough bone for the implant and does not need Bone Graft but still it cost around 4k


if the molar is missing after many year. i know the teeth will shift and the opp side of the teeth will grow longer due to missing tooth on the opp side.

will those shifting cause problem (as in decay or remove) to those remaining tooth that is beside the healthy tooth? (as in tilting, which create area between tooth to have food debris and bacteria to collect at the lobang)

Just to share in detail as i receive quite a number of PM  about the implant i do.


Firstly i go to the smile central dental at Hougang Mall by doc Dr Leonard Teo

here for more location: http://smilecentral.sg/contactus.html
list of doc here: http://smilecentral.sg/dental-surgeons.html


The cost i pay (cash $802.50 that all. nothing more) and medisave $1250. Total $2002.50 NETT but i pay 802.50 only



in point form:

1st apt

doc ask question
(choose plug in implant for $550 or the screw in implant for $750.
 For the fake tooth choose metal or ceramic. please note the screw into the bone is Titanium)

take Xray

doc check and ok for implant

i say ok to do the implant now

doc inject local anesthesia

test the and confirm local anesthesia is working

doc drill the missing tooth area (no pain at all only feel the vibration and the sound of the drill)

finish, go take xray again

doc check xray all ok, and more talking

go ounter take pain killer, mouthwash and anti-antibiotics

finish


2 week later (2nd apt)

doc check if the implant area is healing correctly or any other infection. doc give green light all ok wound have heal 90%


go counter make appt for the 3rd appt


3rd appt


doc check the implant area and found the tooth beside which i done filling about a year ago have decay.

doc redid the filling.

doc take an impression (mold) of this abutment in the mouth and to have the implant crown custom-made to fit (around 10 to 15min)



next apt (4th apt)  2 week later for the crown to be fix to my implant area.













overall experience for me pain free,  very fast, comfy level is great for me cause no pain at all for me
