Dental Implant Treatment in India
A Dental Implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, or facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.
What’s unique about dental implants?
They are made up of titanium/zirconium which are the most biocompatible materials available. Their strength level ranges from 100-220MPa, which makes them incredibly strong to support forces of mastication (chewing).
These materials have a very special property, they can integrate (fuse) with the living bone of your jaw, a process called osseointegration. That’s what allows an implant that has been properly placed to remain looking good and functioning well for a long, long time. And isn’t that what everyone wants from their teeth?

How much do Implant cost and does insurance cover the cost?
The cost of one Dental Implant may range between Rs 20,000 to Rs 50,000 or more as per prevailing market rate. This includes the surgery for its placement, all the components and the Implant crown itself. If you require additional procedures before the Implant, such as a bone graft if there isn’t enough bone present beneath the gum, additional costs may be involved. Dental insurance does not usually cover Implants because most insurance companies consider Implants an elective procedure. However, insurance policies may cover the Implant crown, so be sure to talk to your insurance provider to learn what is and is not covered. Keep in mind if the cause of your tooth loss was an accident or disease, your health insurance policy may actually assist with some of the cost of an Implant.
