Affordable and Low-Cost Dental Implants - USD $ 340 per tooth

The average cost of a dental implant in a rich country like USA is USD $ 3410. But, in inexpensive locations outside USA, an implant costs USD $ 340 for the same quality of implant, and the surgery done by an equally well experienced doctor.

Procedure for Placing Implants

An implant surgery is done in two parts. In first part, implants are placed and in second part, tooth crown is placed over the implant.

First Visit: The first visit is of 4-5 days. In this visit, implants are placed. It takes 45-60 minutes to insert each implant. After the surgery, you can resume your daily work after 2-3 days. The crown is not yet placed in this surgery because the bone needs time to heal completely.

Healing / Waiting Time: The healing / waiting time is of 2 months. During this period, you will wear a removable partial denture as a temporary replacement.

Implant

Second Visit: The second visit is of 3-4 days. In this a tooth crown is placed over the implant that was placed in the first visit. No healing time is required after this.
