Dental implants in Fribourg: everything you need to know about this procedure

dental implant in Fribourg

Have you lost a tooth to decay, trauma or periodontal disease? What is the procedure for a dental implant in Freiburg? What are the reasons for this procedure? In Switzerland, many patients opt to replace one or more missing teeth with implants. This is due to the Swiss Society of Dentists SSO. The HELVIDENT dental clinic team includes dentists specialized in dental implantology. 

What is oral implantology?

Oral implantology, developed on the basis of the biological concept of osseointegration, has become an important branch of modern dentistry. It must now be taken into account when planning treatment for the oral rehabilitation of partially or completely edentulous patients. Treatment is divided into surgical and prosthetic components. 

The dental implant takes the form of a titanium cylinder inserted into the jawbone. It enables a missing tooth to be fully "restored" by acting as an artificial root. A dental crown (usually ceramic) is then attached by a specialist. An implant is not a dental prosthesis, but the anchor point for a fixed prosthesis: a crown or a bridge if several teeth are involved, or for a removable prosthesis, the dental appliance.

Average price of a dental implant in Switzerland

In Switzerland, dental practitioners are free to set their own prices for dental implants. Although dentists are obliged to set their fees "with tact and moderation", the price of a dental implant is often very high. In fact, it is the act of dental care the most expensive and least well-reimbursed.

The price of a dental implant in Fribourg and Switzerland is determined by several factors:

  • The procedure used
  • Implant brand
  • The chosen material
  • The surgeon's experience and reputation
  • Clinic location
  • The dental clinic's level of service

It is estimated that the average price in Switzerland is around CHF 3,900 for a complete implant (implant + abutment + ceramic crown).
