How to find cheaper implants?
If you lose a tooth following a periodontal disease, cavity or gum problem, getting an implant may be the solution for reconstructing your smile. However, the prices of implants can be a barrier to treatment.
What is the average price of a dental implant?
There are significant price disparities between oral health professionals.
In France, dentists are free to charge any prices or fees. As they determine the final cost themselves, this sometimes leads to excessive prices. The consequence: an upwards trend of patients foregoing dental treatment. In 2016, more than 1 in 3 French people (37%) had to forego dental treatment for financial reasons.
The average price of dental implants in France is €2,000. This price includes the implant itself, the prosthesis pillar and the ceramic crown. Social security reimburses the implant crown at 70% of the reimbursement fee schedule agreements, which is €107.50, so a reimbursement of €75.25. Nevertheless, this overlooks the implant reimbursement. Considered as a“non-classified” procedure for reimbursement, dental implants do not get the same reimbursement from social security. All of these factors increase the total cost of the operation.
Luckily, it is possible to find implants at more affordable prices by getting treatment outside of France. This phenomenon is becoming known as “dental tourism”.
Why get a dental implant in Spain?
Dental tourism, particularly in Spain, is becoming more of an alternative for French patients who need dental implants. Spain is known for its architectural wealth, natural spaces and seaside resorts. However, its best kept secret is really its world-class offering of dental clinics. In addition to attractive prices, Spain has numerous dental clinics with cutting edge technology and highly qualified dental surgeons.

In addition, when choosing the EL CEDRO clinic for your dental implants, a benchmark of implantology, you will get affordable prices without sacrificing treatment quality.
