What’s the price of a dental bone graft for in Medellin?
Depending on what your 3D x-ray reveals, you may require a bone graft if your jaw bone does not have enough bone to support a dental implant. You should know that these bone grafts do not come from your own body, instead they come from bovine (cows, oxes, etc.) We charge $230 per bone graft gram.
If a patient needs a bone graft, they typically require 1-2 grams per tooth. Should a patient need significant bone grafts, an additional trip prior may be needed.
What’s the price of the implant portion of the dental implant procedure in Medellin, Colombia?
The implant portion of the dental implant procedure is the screw or rod that gets surgically placed into a jaw bone. Many offices will advertise this portion of the dental implant procedure as a way to distort the total cost of the procedure. We do not feel this is particularly forthcoming or honest since most patients do not know this.
We charge $1,385 USD for a complete dental implant procedure, this includes the implant portion, the abutment (post), and the crown (cap). If you simply asked for the implant portion price, it would be $795. Again, many practices will advertise the $795 as the implant price, not disclosing the additional costs like the ones explained in this blog post.
What’s the price of the abutment and crown portion of the dental implant procedure in Medellin, Colombia?
Again, we bake these components of the dental implant procedure into a single $1,385 but many practices do not. You need to be sure you’re comparing “apples to apples” so to speak. If you asked us how much we charge for the abutment and crown, we’d say $590. Please note that not all implants or crowns are the same, these are general prices.
Usually these implants are made of titanium, sometimes zirconia and the crowns are made of porcelain and sometimes zirconia. Every dental implant manufacturers will have their own unique crowns that will work their implants. The costs will vary slightly but these numbers are ballparks.
