What is the cost of zygomatic dental implants in Singapore?


bigstock-Funny-Old-Man-5781083.jpgOnce of the common problems in oral rehabilitation with dental implants is the lack of bone in the jaw to place an implant. This is especially the case for patients who have lost all their upper teeth for a long time and have been using a removable denture for years. The pressure of a removable denture resting on the surface of the bone causes significant bone resorption. Converting to a fixed implant supported prosthesis is often impossible without resorting to reconstructive jaw surgical procedures such as bone grafting, distraction osteogenesis and even orthognathic surgery. The objective of such augmentative procedures is to “normalize” or “idealize” the jaw for placement of dental implants. However, the process is usually long drawn, requiring multiple surgeries spread over several months. The zygomatic dental implant seeks to circumvent these procedures and shorten the treatment duration and minimize the number of steps needed.

bigstock-Dental-implant-38866831Dentures have long been the traditional option for the replacement of missing teeth, but are they the best one? While every dental patient is different, in general, conventional dentures are only considered the best solution to tooth loss in the relatively small percentage of people for whom dental implants are not an option. Dental implants have become the standard of care in tooth loss cases for a number of very good reasons, including better support of oral health, structure and function, greater longevity, increased comfort and better aesthetic outcomes as compared to conventional dentures.
