Patients who have lost teeth due to accidents can receive dental implants, rather than use dentures to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are inserted into the root cavity and serve as permanent tooth roots. They can support other dental fixtures, such as bridges, crowns, and dentures. Dental implants are not always covered by insurance, and the cost is about $2,800 per tooth in the US, and £2,700 in the UK. Rather than undergo expensive dental implant surgery in the US or UK, patients can get high-quality dental work done overseas in Latin America and Eastern Europe.
Costa Rica, Argentina, and Mexico are leaders in dentistry in Latin America. The price of dental implants is between $650 and $960 per tooth, or between £440 and £650. Like many other dental procedures, getting dental implants may require several visits. Yet because food and lodging are inexpensive in Latin America, getting dental implants in Costa Rica, Argentina, or Mexico is still very affordable even if a patient must stay in the country for one or two weeks. Over the past decade, the dental work industry has grown considerably in Latin America; patients needing dental implants have thousands of highly trained dentists to choose from.
Poland is another top destination for medical tourists who need dental work. In Poland, the average price of dental implants is $650 or £450. Dentists' offices in Poland are also as clean and modern as they are in the US, UK, and Latin America.
