Natural looking teeth

Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth as the dental implant post closely replicates a natural tooth root.

Easier eating

Dental implants make it easy to chew food properly, particularly if currently struggle with ill-fitting dentures. You’ll be able to enjoy a greater variety of foods, and your general health could improve due to better overall nutrition.

Improved appearance

Your appearance may improve, as dental implants support your cheeks and lips and ensure your facial dimensions are correct.

A long-lasting solution to missing teeth

Dental implants are very durable and are a long-lasting solution to missing teeth. With the correct care, they should last for many years or even for life..

Oral health benefits

Dental implants only have positive effects on your remaining teeth, helping to hold them in position. In addition, there is no need to grind down or modify healthy teeth to support a bridge or denture.


You’ll enjoy greater self-confidence and self-esteem, as no-one will know you are missing any teeth.

NSOMS is a leader in digital implantology using the most advanced skill and technology with our state-of-art equipment

Digital implant treatment allows:

  • Benefit from digital accuracy and reduce manual errors
  • Enhance predictability of final implant position and restorative outcome (function and aesthetic of the final crown)
  • Reduce chair time and number of visits
  • Less invasive and faster healing
  • Safe from injury to other important structures (i.e. nerve or sinus injury)

Dental Implant Treatment

When having a tooth/teeth replaced with dental implants, what you really want is a cosmetically pleasing tooth that functions well. In order for the tooth to look great and strong, the implant has to be placed in an ideal position and angle. Unfortunately, manual errors do exist and an implant can be placed in an unfavourable position and angle even in the hands of a very experienced surgeon.

Dental implant treatment involves:


We can virtually plan your surgery using a computer software. We will design a tooth in its most desirable position first and using this information we will then identify the most favourable position and size of the dental implant. You can also see the virtual plan to visualise the expected outcome of your treatment before we start the surgery.


Based on the plan, we can fabricate a surgical guide using a 3D printer that will allow us to reproduce the virtual planning in actual surgery


We can also digitally mill a temporary crown and fit it onto the implant on the same day of your surgery so you do not have to leave our clinic with a gap of missing tooth
