ImplantsAn implant is typically a titanium or porcelain screw. Missing teeth can be replaced with implants. An implant is inserted into the jawbone with surgery, where it serves as a replace-ment for a lost tooth root. A denture, for example, a crown or bridge is then attached to this so-called artificial abutment.

With implant technology it is possible to

  • replace a single tooth,
  • fill a gap (two or more teeth),
  • fill out a shortened row of teeth,
  • cater for a totally toothless jaw.

An implant solution for a single tooth replacement has the advantage that neighbouring healthy teeth do not need to be ground down – which considerably improves the long-term prognosis for these teeth. In addition, implant-supported bridges or dentures generally guarantee better chewing function. Patients usual feel very secure with implant treatment since dental restoration of this kind typically feels like their own teeth.

Modern implant treatment began around 40 years ago. Back then, implants were inserted in particular in patients with toothless lower jaws. Nowadays, around 90,000 dental implants are inserted per year in Switzerland.




Implants - Beckenhof Dental Practice - Zurich"Often, you only start to appreciate something when it's gone". This can also be said to apply to teeth. Their loss – for whatever reason, usually feels as if your life has undergone a drastic change. At that moment, you become aware of how important teeth actually are for personal charisma. Teeth represent an immediately visible "calling card". Charisma and appearance are nowadays regarded as crucial factors in terms of an individual person's social skills. Connections with private and professional success are obvious and proven. Teeth are felt to be an integral part of an aesthetically pleasing and harmonious facial expression.

With implants it is possible to permanently replace teeth and their roots. The bone grows around the small artificial titanium tooth roots, which produce successful results. For over 40 years, tooth implants have offered the possibility for long-term complete tooth replacement. They have been tried and tested longterm and have shown the best possible results. All queries on implant treatment can be answered in our practice .
