Dental implants in the USA and Canada can be quite expensive. As a result, Americans who want or need the procedure are coming to Costa Rica where high-quality dental work is available at affordable prices. Some of them simply can’t afford dental implants at home while others follow the popular wisdom of saving money while visiting an amazing and popular international vacation destination.
A dental implant in Costa Rica will cost from $800 to $1,000 US dollars. Obviously, this is an approximation and the actual cost will be based on your specific needs, the materials used, the number of dental implants, any additional dental work needed, and the specific dentist that will perform your procedure.
By contrast, a dental implant in the US costs from between $2,000 to $3,000 US dollars. In addition to the factors already mentioned, the cost of a dental implant in the US will vary even more depending on your location. Dentists in cities with a high costs of living, like New York City for example, will charge even more. Some cities market dental implants from $3000 to $5000 each.
However, there is a difference in how prices are handled in each country. Dentists in Costa Rica may ask you to take a test or two while you’re still at home and then offer you a fixed price on your dental work, typically with a fixed package of services. Dentists in the US will more typically give you only a rough estimate and you will discover the actual charges after the procedure is complete.
