The initial costs of an implant treatment vary depending on several factors:
- How many implants are needed?
- Is bone augmentation required?
- What are the costs of the surgery, lab work and the prosthesis?
- What are the dentist’s and dental technician’s fees?
Dental implants are often associated with greater initial investments, but they may offer a more economical solution in the long term. Please consult with your dentist.
Every surgical procedure carries potential risks. You should always consult with a dental professional prior to treatment. Potential risk factors may vary depending on medical or other conditions of each patient. For example, bad oral hygiene or limited healing of the wound due to pre-existing conditions (e.g. diabetes, osteoporosis) may reduce the odds of the implant remaining in place.
Dental implants are generally inserted under local anesthetic to help minimize discomfort during the operation. If you experience any doubts about the condition of the implant site after the procedure, please make sure to consult with your dentist.
Long-term surveys have shown that Straumann implants have a very high survival rate. Straumann cares for quality and reliability.
Impeccable oral hygiene is vital before an implant can be placed. After insertion, the teeth also need to be carefully looked after, irrespective of whether they are real or artificial. Regular check-ups and preventative appointments at the dentist are also necessary.
In young patients, dental implants may be inserted only once their jaw bones are fully developed. At the other end of the spectrum, there is no age limit – given of course that the patient does not display any significant medical risk factors.
