What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a replacement tooth root that is inserted in the jawbone to hold a crown (a single false tooth) or bridge (a row of false teeth). It consists of an implant, abutment, and a crown (or bridge). The implant is a metal post usually made of titanium and the abutment connects this to the crown or bridge. This treatment is an option for people who lost their teeth due to gum disease, injury, or other reason.

What is the Process for Dental Implant Treatment?

The process involves an initial consultation, treatment planning, placement of implants, and attachment of permanent teeth.

During the initial consultation, the dentist will review your medical background and dental health, performing a complete examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw. Once it is confirmed that this is best for you, a treatment plan is prepared with the details of the treatment and costs.

Once you have agreed on the plan, the implants will be inserted in the jawbone with the temporary teeth on top. A healing process takes place after this where the gums are healed and the bone fuses with the implants, forming a strong foundation for your new teeth. After the healing period of three to six months, you’ll return for the attachment of the permanent teeth. Your dentist will inform you on how to take care of your teeth, but in reality,ity it is nothing more than keeping up with a daily oral routine and regular teeth cleaning at the dentist.

How Will I Know if I’m a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

You need to have healthy gums and sufficient bone to support the implant. Your dentist will check if this is best for you.

How Much Can I Save on Dental Implants in Penang?

The price of implants depends on the type of material, additional procedure like bone graft, the expertise of the dentist and other factors. However, on average the cost of dental implants in Penang costs AUD $2,210 (USD $1,620; UK £1,122; € 1,500) compared to in Australia $5,100 (USD $3,900; UK £2,950; €3,500)

What is the Quality of Dental Care in Penang?

Dental care is generally excellent, particularly in clinics that cater to international patients. You can expect modern equipment and an advanced approach with dentists who are well qualified and trained.
