Currently, there are two kinds of dental Implants: Implant crown cementation which is widely used and SSI Implant (Singapore Smart Implant) which is the most advanced technology and exclusively transferred from Singapore to Singae Dental Clinic.

1. The differences between the structures

The structure of an IMPLANT CROWN CEMENTATION: A dental Implant consists of 3 parts: a pillar, an abutment, and a porcelain crown (the porcelain crown is attached to the abutment with cement).

The structure of an SSI IMPLANT (Singapore Smart Implant technology- exclusively transferred from Singapore): A dental Implant consists of 5 parts: a pillar, an abutment, a tooth core, a porcelain crown, and screws.

2. Outstanding advantages of SSI IMPLANT compared to IMPLANT CROWN CEMENTATION

Pillar Implant elimination High risk of pillar damage

The abutment is attached to the crown using dental cement making it difficult to remove all the excess cement. This leads to inflammation and pillar elimination.

No pillar Implant elimination

The abutment is attached to the crown using a screw (cement-free) so there is no inflammation or pillar elimination.

Crown replacement Difficult to fix or replace with a new crown: Since the crown is stuck to the abutment if the crown is broken, the dentist has to replace both the crown and the abutment.

The replacement will affect the pillar in the jawbone: it breaks the joint and the pillar, causing pain to the patient as well as an extra cost for replacement.

Easy to fix or replace with a new crown: Since the crown is attached to the abutment with a screw if the crown is broken, the dentist only needs to replace the crown.

No extra cost added and no pain.

Time of the process At least 3-6 months. 1-3 months.
Accuracy Difficult to manipulate

Low accuracy

outstanding accuracy
Cost Cheaper initial cost -10% higher than Implant crown cementation but the effects are outstanding.

3. The reason why the SSI IMPLANT has a faster finishing process than IMPLANT CROWN CEMENTATION

When inserting the pillar Implant into the jawbone, the doctor needs a force of 35 N/m. This is the time when the pillả has the highest stability, at 35 N/m. After that, the process of bone integration and bone formation happens and causes a gradual decrease in stability of the implant, down to 25 or 20 N/m.

The cement Implant technology: After a few months of inserting the pillar, the stability of the Implant post increases to over 35 N/m. The dentist will insert the Abutment into the pillar (which also requires a minimum force of 35 N/m). Therefore, the total time takes from 3 to 6 months.

With SSI Implant technology: After inserting the pillar, the dentist always installs the multi Abutment into the Implant (at the same force of 35 N/m). After 1 month, when the stability of the Implant drops to 25 or 20 N/m, the doctor only needs a force of 15 N/m to insert the crown and the tooth core into the abutment. 

Principle of Superposition force.

It is feared that in case, the patient’s bones are not strong enough for the pillar to achieve  stability of 35 N/m but only achieve 25 N/m. At this time, installing Multi Abutment on the pillar (requiring a force of 35 N/m) will rotate the pillar and make it fail.

This will not happen because according to the Principle of Superposition force: Between the multi abutment and the Implant post, there is a screw that plays a role as a mattress to reduce the force exerted on the Implant, so in order to rotate the Implant post in the jawbone, the dentist needs a force that is greater than 35 N/m many times. This is why the Abutment can be comfortably screwed into the Implant at a force of 35 N/m without worrying about rotating the pillar Implant.

Between the Abutment and the tooth, there is a second screw (which acts as the second mattress) which reduces the impact force on the pillar Implant many times so customers can eat and chew comfortably without worrying about damaging the pillar Implant.
