What about bone grafts and/or membranes for your dental implants in Cartagena, Colombia?
You may need a bone graft and membrane in order for your dental implant procedure to be performed. This depends on your jaw bone density and whether or not the bone can support implants.
These bone grafts don’t come from other parts of your body instead they’re taken from bovine. A bone graft is $230 per gram and most patients that do need it, require 1-2 grams per tooth. Membranes are $190 USD.
Would you like temporary crown solutions for your dental implants?
Though not required, you may ask for a temporary crown solution for the 4-6 months in between dental implant phases. Remember, all implant procedures are done in 2-3 phases.
After the implant (the rod/screw itself) is surgically inserted into your jaw bone, it will take a few months for the bone and implant to fuse and heal.
During this time, you may decide to wear a temporary crown solution in the form of a partial or denture, or a combination. This is done for aesthetic purposes or if you’d like to have additional support while chewing.
If you are accustomed to not having a tooth there, you may decide you don’t need a temporary solution.
Temporary single crowns/flippers for $50 USD, partial dentures are $130 USD, and full dentures are $370 USD in Cartagena, Colombia.

Dental implant costs in Cartagena are split between phases
Dental implant procedures are typically done in 2 phases, sometimes 3.
The first phase is where any tooth extractions, bone grafts, membranes are done and the implants themselves are surgically inserted into your jaw bone. If you want temporary crowns, these are done at this time as well.
Four to six months later you will return for the second phase where the permanent crowns are placed on your implants, completing the dental implant procedure.
If you require a good deal of bone grafts, an additional trip prior to the first phase may be needed to ensure your jaw bone has enough bone to support dental implants.
