Dealing with Rising Dental Care Costs

Unfortunately, Americans are growing increasingly aware of the high cost of medical, dental and vision care. Because of the need for physicians in every field to carry malpractice insurance, our insurance rates as well as the cost of medical and dental procedures are higher than just about anywhere in the world.

Dental care is essential for optimal health, but unfortunately, many of us don’t carry dental insurance that will help pay for dentures, root canals, dental implants, or oral and maxillofacial surgeries. In recent years, more Americans than ever before have traveled abroad for low cost dental care procedures to leading destinations throughout Asia, South America, and Europe.

The cost of dental procedures, cosmetic dental treatments, and dental surgery depends upon the type of procedure being performed, but in the United States, a single dental implant can cost between $1,000 and $5,000. The cost of a crown will vary by the type of crown chosen, but may range between $800 and $1,000. Bonding can run between $300 and $600 a tooth. Jaw reconstruction may cost between $24,000 and $100,000. Orthodontic procedures may range anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000, sometimes more.

In foreign destinations such as Hungary, single dental implants in hungary cost roughly $1,350. In Poland, a prosthetic reconstruction of the jaw runs about $4,368. Costs on other dental procedures may save travelers between 20% and 50%, and sometimes more.

Do some price comparisons on your own, and you’ll be surprised at the thousands of dollars you can save on high-tech, expert dental care abroad.
