Dental Implants (Malaysia)

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. They are a popular and effective long-term solution for replacing missing teeth.

Dental implants in Malaysia have become increasingly popular as more people seek to improve their oral health and enhance their appearance.


  1. Implant Fixture: This is the part of the implant that is surgically placed into the jawbone. It is typically screw-shaped and made of a biocompatible material, like titanium. The implant body fuses with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, providing stability and strength.
  2. Abutment: Once the implant has integrated with the jawbone (which can take several months), an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment is a connector piece that protrudes from the gum line and holds the prosthetic tooth or teeth.
  3. Prosthetic Tooth: This is the visible part of the dental implant, which could be a crown, bridge, or denture. It’s custom-made to match the appearance and function of natural teeth.

  • Durability: Dental implants are known for their long-term durability. With proper care and maintenance, they can last a lifetime.
  • Natural Appearance: Implants are designed to look and feel like real teeth. They blend seamlessly with your natural smile.
  • Improved Functionality: Dental implants function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and chew comfortably and confidently.
  • Preservation of Jaw Bone: Implants stimulate the surrounding bone, helping to prevent bone loss that often occurs when teeth are missing. This contributes to better oral health and facial structure preservation.
  • No Damage to Adjacent Teeth: Unlike traditional bridges, dental implants do not require adjacent teeth to be ground down or modified. This helps preserve the integrity of surrounding teeth.
  • Improved Confidence: Dental implants provide a secure and stable solution for tooth replacement, boosting a patient’s confidence in their smile and ability to eat and speak.

Key Factors

Candidates for dental implants are individuals who have lost one or more teeth and are in good general health. Here are some key factors to determine if a person is a candidate for dental implants:

  • Good General Health: Certain systemic conditions or diseases, such as uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune disorders, may affect the healing process after surgery. It’s important to discuss any medical conditions with your dentist.
  • Adequate Bone Density: Sufficient bone density in the jaw is crucial to provide a stable foundation for the implant. If there is inadequate bone, bone grafting or augmentation procedures may be necessary before implant placement.
  • Healthy Gums: Healthy gums are essential for the success of dental implants. Any existing periodontal disease should be treated and resolved before implant surgery.
  • Commitment to Oral Hygiene: Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups are essential for the long-term success of dental implants.
  • Stable Bite and Occlusion: A stable bite ensures that the implants will not be subjected to excessive force during chewing. Any issues with bite alignment may need to be addressed before implant placement.
  • Age Consideration: Dental implants can be suitable for adults of any age, but they are generally not recommended for children or young adolescents whose jawbones are still growing.

It’s important to note that each individual’s case is unique. During your consultation at Hello Dental Clinic, a thorough evaluation by our qualified professional dentists will determine if dental implants are the right option for you.

The assessment includes clinical examination, dental imaging, and a review of the patient’s medical and dental history. Our dentists will tailor a treatment plan according to your specific needs and goals.

Guided Surgery

At Hello Dental Clinic, we offer guided dental implant surgery, also known as digital implant placement or computer-guided implant surgery. It is an advanced technique used in dental implantology to ensure precise and accurate placement of dental implants.

It involves the use of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to plan and execute the implant placement procedure.

Advantages Over Traditional Implant

  • Improved Accuracy: Guided implant surgery utilises advanced digital technology, such as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans and specialised software, to precisely plan the placement of dental implants. This helps ensure accurate positioning of the implants in relation to the surrounding bone, nerves, and anatomical structures.
  • Enhanced Predictability: Guided implant surgery helps the dental professional determine the optimal implant size, length, and angulation for the best possible outcome. It increases the predictability of the surgical procedure and reduces the risk of complications.
  • Minimally Invasive Approach: The pre-planned surgical guide directs the dentist’s instruments and ensures precise implant placement, often resulting in smaller incisions, less tissue trauma, and reduced post-operative discomfort. This can contribute to faster healing and recovery times for the patient.
  • Efficient and Time-Saving: The digital planning process enables precise implant placement, reducing the need for extensive adjustments during surgery. This can streamline the overall treatment process, minimise chair time, and potentially reduce the number of appointments required.
  • Patient Communication and Visualization: Guided implant surgery incorporates visual aids and interactive treatment planning, allowing patients to visualise the expected results and better understand their treatment plan.

Overall, guided dental implant surgery offers improved accuracy, predictability, efficiency, and aesthetic outcomes, providing significant advantages for both dental professionals and patients.

All on 4

All on 4 dental implants are a popular solution for patients missing all teeth in one or both arches. This treatment uses four implants to support a full set of prosthetic teeth.

Advantages Over Traditional Dentures

  • Stability and Comfort: All on 4 implants offer superior stability compared to traditional dentures that rely on suction or adhesive for retention. Implants are anchored directly into the jawbone, providing a secure foundation for the prosthetic teeth. This can greatly improve comfort and confidence when speaking and eating.
  • Improved Biting Force: With traditional dentures, chewing efficiency is greatly reduced, as they often only have about 10% of the biting force of natural teeth. All on 4 implants can restore up to 70% of a person’s natural biting capacity, allowing for a wider range of dietary options.
  • Improved Aesthetics: The prosthetic teeth used in all the 4 implants are custom-made to match the patient’s natural tooth colour and shape, resulting in a natural-looking smile that can greatly enhance one’s confidence and self-esteem.

Immediate Placement

In some cases, dental implants can be placed immediately after a tooth extraction. This immediate implants offer numerous benefits for patients, including:

  • Reduced Treatment Time: Immediate implant placement eliminates the need to wait several months for the site to heal before placing the implant. This can significantly reduce the overall treatment time.
  • Preservation of Bone and Soft Tissue: The immediate placement of an implant can help preserve bone and soft tissue in the extraction site, preventing further bone loss or gum recession.
  • Improved Aesthetics: By placing an implant immediately after an extraction, there is no need for a temporary restoration or prolonged period without a tooth, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.

While immediate implant placement may not be suitable for all cases, it can offer significant benefits for patients who meet the necessary criteria.
