Hi are there dental clinics in Singapore that provide two-implant support overdenture for the lower jaw, and what is the cost? Thanks!

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Dear Rider44,

Firstly, yes, there are many dental clinics that do offer implant-retained and implant-supported dentures. In general, with only two implants, the denture would be more accurately termed implant-retained, and whether or not this is sufficient in the lower jaw really depends on the how much bone ridge there’s left, the shape of the bone ridge and many other factors. Lower full dentures (which I’m assuming is what you’re asking about) can unfortunately often be challenging to treat.

Secondly, again, most dentists would hesitate to give a cost estimate in a situation with so many factors. This is as theres no one size fits all solution: what’s the complexity of the case, is there a bone graft needed, what sort of implant system is preferred and so on. Also, cost is always a concern but quality and longevity should be a bigger one. The dentist’s experience level of course also plays a part. 

To give you a starting point though, I’d refer you to MOH’s published fee guidelines:

Full dentures: $600 - $1143 per arch

Implant with crown: $3099 - $5337 each

Hope that helps, but I will recommend seeing a trusted dentist for a better opinion.

Best regards,

Dr JD Tan

Dear Rider44, 

Most dental clinics that do implants would be able to facilitate an implant retained denture. 

As Dr JD has explained, cost of total treatment depends on how easy or difficult the implant placement would be in the lower jaw. 

For the implant surgery portion - this is claimable by medisave. The medisave account used can either be patient's personal account, of account of family member. Usually claimable amount is $950 per implant, and if there is a top up it is subject to the treating dentist to determine because if bone particles need to be grafted in, then there would be an additional cost incurred. 

For the denture portion - this can be subsidized by CHAS blue or orange or PG cards if the patient has one of the 3. The amount of subsidy is varied in accordance to the type of card you have. 

Hope this additional information helps! 

Warm regards, 

Dr Beth
