With aging populations, dental care has become more and more complex and costly. Less and less persons are wanting to accept dentures as a restoration of their teeth and dental implants are the ideal solution to replace missing teeth but they are still very expensive.
Patients from USA now go to Costa Rica for their dental implants and patients from UK go to countries like Hungary and Romania where high quality dental care can be found at a much lower price.
The infographic at the bottom of the page shows how and why dental care is cheaper abroad.
The price of dental implant is mostly related to price of labor, taxes and operation costs of the clinic. Those are the biggest part of the price, whereas the implant itself only represents 10% to 20% of the total cost.
