Tell Me More about Dental Implants.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is inserted into your jawbone to hold a replacement tooth (crown or bridge). It consists of an implant, abutment, and a crown. The implant is a cylindrical post, usually made of titanium. An abutment connects this to the crown.

If you have multiple missing teeth, implants are an important alternative to dentures. Since implants are firmly secured into your mouth, you can smile, talk, and eat confidently. The replacement tooth (or teeth) feel and mimic your natural teeth. Implants are light, sturdy, and biocompatible (safe.). Once the procedure is complete, implants don't require additional care, as do dentures.

The only downside is that implants are generally more expensive than dentures, prohibitively so in countries where dental costs are high. This is one reason why thousands of travelers opt for implantology work in affordable medical destinations, and why Kuala Lumpur is such a popular choice.

The procedure for dental implants involves several stages and will entail two trips to the clinic in KL, typically six months apart, which you will want to factor into your plans if you are considering travel to KL for your implants.

How Do I Plan for Dental Implants in Kuala Lumpur?

Dental Departures can help you find the best implantologists in and around KL. During your consultation, your dentist will evaluate if you’re a suitable candidate for implants. This involves a complete examination of your teeth, gums, mouth, and jawbone.  Patients with healthy gums and bones are ideal candidates for implants, but if there is bone loss in the jaw then a bone graft may be possible to make the bone acceptable for an implant procedure.

Once it is confirmed that you’re a good candidate for implants, the implants will be inserted in the jawbone. Your gum will be stitched over. Then, you will wait three to six months for the implant to fuse with the bone (a process called osseointegration). After the healing period, you will return to the clinic for the fitting and placement of the crown or bridge. The treatment period depends on your condition.

After the procedure, you need only keep up with your daily oral hygiene, and schedule regular checkups with your dentist.

What about the Quality of Dentists in Kuala Lumpur?

Malaysia has a good reputation for medical tourism, having won several awards for Best Medical Travel destination.

The best dentists in KL are highly trained – many of them abroad – use state of the art instrumentation and brand name materials, and continue to stay abreast of industry trends. All Malaysian dentists must register to practice with the Malaysian Dental Association and Malaysian Dental Council, and many have international affiliations with professional organizations like the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Our best dentists warranty their treatment and lab work. If you book your appointment with us, Dental Departures is here to work on your behalf in the rare event you experience complications or have any other concerns.

How Much Can I Save on Dental Implants in KL?

The price of dental implants depends on many factors such as the material used and additional treatment required, such as a bone graft. Treatment price for implants in Malaysia typically starts at USD $1,792.71 (CAD $2,336.32; AUD $2,334.90; NZD $2,595.68; UK £1,251.59).

Our patients have enjoyed excellent outcomes and favorable customer experiences at clinics such as Imperial Dental Specialist Centre, Firdaus Dental Clinic and Smile Avenue Dental Surgery, to name a few.

How Do I Book an Appointment?
