Smilepoint Dental is a dental practice that is conveniently located at Holland Village, Singapore. As a full-service dental clinic, it has oral surgeons and periodontists on staff who are specialists in dental implants placement. Dental implants are devices designed to replace the roots of missing teeth. They are used to support dentures, bridges or crowns. Implants are usually placed in the jawbone through surgery. Dental implant procedure at Smilepoint Dental involves consultation where a dentist assesses the area which has missing teeth and takes an X-ray and after a period of time, places the implant. The procedure of placement is normally divided into two stages. At the first stage, the implant is placed under the gum line and left to heal. A few months or longer may be required for healing. The second stage consists of exposing the top of the implant and placing healing abutment in. When the implant has integrated smoothly into the bone, a crown is then attached to the implant.
