Dental implants: Recommendation for second opinion?

Long story short, an old bridge was damaged when I took a tumble and face-planted - and it looks like it cannot be repaired, the only solution is implants.

A quote for the work arrived in the post today.

<Opens envelope, faints in shock...>


I think a second opinion is in order, or at least a second quote. Can any of you recommend a dentist specializing in implants, in the greater Zürich, SZ or ZG area?

Many thanks.

If it makes you feel any better, I was quoted between 12k - 20k or 38k for top of the range stuff. I'm seeking a second opinion on Monday.

Rent a nice apartment by the see in Spain for 6 months. Then go back and forth for your treatments. It will probably be cheaper.

May I ask how many implants your quote is for?

I actually considered that for a fleeting moment - but I have the mutts to think of. A sitter would cost more than the implants.

Re: Dental implants: Recommendation for second opinion?

My dentist in Zürich is Dr Marcus Mettler. He has been replacing all my shoddy dental work from the UK, step by step, never rushing me and never recommending something unless necessary. Can you imagine a dentist who strongly advised against veneers when I asked. Most recently the hygienist suggested a cavity, but he said it was just a discolored filling and just polished it. No cheap, but nothing like the figures suggested here. Also the work is superb.
I live in Zug, so it’s a bit inconvenient, but when you find a good dentist it’s worth it. I can highly recommend him.
