Dental implants in Cham
A lost tooth should be replaced for both aesthetic and functional reasons. It is the tooth replacement that comes closest to the natural tooth. A dental implant provides very good support when biting. The first implant was placed in 1967. Come to Cham for a dental implant.
Filling gaps between teeth with dental implants
Dental implants are highly developed, bone compatible, high performance screws. They are made of titanium or ceramic (zirconium). They are inserted into the jawbone to replace the natural root of the tooth. Crowns and bridges can also be attached to the top of the implant.
We match the colour and shape to your teeth for a discreet result. The fixed prosthesis (implant crown) is attached to the implant. Dental implants can also be used to anchor removable dentures. The denture is securely attached to the dental implant with a snap system. Implants provide better chewing function and quality of life into old age.
Successful dental implant treatment
The prerequisite for successful implantology is sufficient jawbone height and width. If there is very little bone available, the first step is to build up the bone. The implant is then placed in a second procedure.
At Zahnpraxis Papieri, we assess the entire dental situation and take a three-dimensional X-ray for implant planning. Of course, we will also inform you about alternative treatment options or the consequences of not having treatment.
Risk factors for dental implantation include medications that affect bone metabolism (e.g. bisphonates), smoking, periodontal disease (periodontitis) or poor oral hygiene.
The procedure is usually carried out under local anaesthetic in the surgical area. Patients who are afraid of dentists can be treated under general anaesthetic. The operation is performed by experienced specialists (several years of training at the Universities of Bern and Zurich). The cost of a dental implant is usually between CHF 4,000 and CHF 7,000, but can vary considerably. We will be happy to give you an individual estimate.
Common side effects of an implant are mild pain, bleeding or swelling.
Aftercare dental implant Cham
Implants, like teeth, need regular check-ups. They have been shown to be more susceptible to infection than teeth due to poor oral hygiene. You can carry out this aftercare in a relaxed manner as part of your annual Dental hygiene check-up. Our Dentist in Cham will provide you with competent support for your dental implants.
