Depending on factors such as the location, the amount work that has to be done on the teeth, the function of the particular tooth and the experience of the dentist all cause the cost of dental implants to vary to quite an extent.
Even in the U.S., the cost of dental implants varies from state to state. The cost of a dental implant is somewhere in between $1800 and 2500 in the state of Texas. An abutment kit along with the crown that is fitted over the tooth implant costs about $1200 to $2800. The price can vary even within the Texas. The cost of dental implant is much less expensive in the smaller town, while the dental implant procedure costs much higher, in the range of $3000 to $5300 in a town like Dallas or Houston. The crown and the abutment can cost somewhere between $1,200 and $1,800, while the dental implant itself costs somewhere between $1,200 and $2000 per tooth, on the East coast of the US.
$1,500 to 2,500 USD per tooth is the average cost of a dental implant without the additional crown. The costs of the complete procedure for the lower or upper jaw can quickly escalate in between $15,000 to $30,000 if additional costs for things like bone regeneration or posterior mandible, narrow diameter or wide diameter implants are involved. Unlike a tooth that is not really important, the dental implant for important teeth such as those on the front or a molar can cost a lot more.
The cost of a dental implant in the UK is somewhere around £2000. Over a year or so, several trips to the dentist are involved when getting tooth implants. Metal screws need to be screwed into the bone and before the implant can be fitted the gums need to heal first.
For those who go to a teaching hospital in the UK can even get a tooth implant in the National Health Scheme but the waiting list there is quite long. Around £189 is the usual cost for a crown on the National Health Scheme while it can cost around £400 from a private dentist. The total cost of a dental implant in the UK can sum up between £1500.00 and £2000.
The costs of getting dental implants abroad are much inexpensive and they are more affordable. In a country like India, dental implants cost somewhere in between INR 20,000 and INR 25,000.
