Your health is your wealth, and Straumann dental implant solutions provide:

You cannot put a value on these things; however there is a monetary aspect when it comes to deciding between dental implants and conventional restorations. Interestingly, studies suggest that in some cases implants may be less expensive in the long term.

Goodbye to discomfort and extensive care

Even the best prosthesis is a foreign body that requires additional care and future maintenance. Possible discomfort or pressure sores, as well as time-consuming use of adhesives are the inconvenient side effects of conventional dentures. Furthermore, ill-fitting dentures can result in insecurity and self-consciousness. By contrast, a dental implant is an artificial root, which acts like a natural one, becoming just like any other part of your body once it has properly healed.

Implant placement – the friendly approach

Placement of a dental implant could seem like an aggressive approach, however from a biological standpoint, it is considered to be very conservative. Also, by placing an implant into the jaw bone, a functional stimulus is provided which helps to preserve the remaining bone and prevent resorption. And, contrary to conventional methods, this friendly solution protects the adjacent teeth as they are not required for support.

Long-term gains

Graph: After 7 years, the costs for a single-tooth restoration pay off and the long-term maintenance costs are lower than for a conventional bridge.1

In terms of cost-effectiveness, scientific studies came to significant conclusions:

  1. For single-tooth replacement, a single implant is to be regarded as a cost-effective treatment option in comparison to a traditional 3-unit fixed dental prosthesis.1
  2. In some situations with either non- or minimally restored teeth with sufficient bone, an implant reconstruction is to be recommended from an economical point of view. 2
  3. For the replacement of multiple teeth, dental implants (fixed or removable prostheses) were associated with higher initial costs but better improvements in oral health-related quality of life compared with other treatment options.3
