When a patient requires dental implants to correct tooth deformities, the success of the implantation depends on how much bone is available in the implant area. A dental bone graft is used to support a dental implant. To create a dental bone graft, an orthopedic surgeon harvests bone material from the patient's own body, usually the hip. The bone graft fuses to the existing bones under the gums, thereby making the implant more secure. Dental bone grafts are one of the most expensive kinds of dental surgeries; around $4,000 in the US, and £2,300 in the UK. If the patient travels abroad, the saving can be remarkable. Orthopedic surgeons and dentists can perform the operation for much less.
During the operation, a team of dental and orthopedic surgeons will harvest the bone tissue and apply it at the site of the implant. Many doctors and surgeons have studied dentistry in the US and UK and have their practice in Latin America. They are knowledgeable and skillful. Most surgeons and nurses speak English as well. Hospital facilities are sparkling and equipped with the most modern technology. Patients will be in the hands of caring professionals who adhere to high medical standards.
The costs of dental bone grafts in Mexico and Costa Rica are only $400-$600, or £240-£360. Most patients who decide on bone grafts abroad, take advantage of being there and also get their dental implants in the same hospital, so the total cost of dental surgery is reduced.
