Hi Dexdub,

Your story is a common feature. There is only one clinic I know of in Dublin that is part of another clinic overseas. They offer dental implants in Dublin for €1249 with all work completed in Dublin by a IDC dentist. It is worth going to their Europe clinic for crowns as you can make huge savings but for dental implants, get them done in Dublin, so there is no chance of 19 visits overseas.

definately best to have your dental implant placed in Ireland.

Be very careful about using overseas or partially overseas dentitsts when considering implants. Also be aware that you are better off using a practice that is dentist owned and managed. 

My personal experience using a Budapest affilaited practice, that had a clinic in Dublin, was extremely bad. A process that should have taken 6 visits took 19. It took 3 attempts to get an implant the right size and that didn's come lose or all out.

When entering into discpute with the practive it turned out that the practice was not dentist run and that I had very little recourse though the Irish dental associations or complaint process. Ultimately I took a court action to get a judgement agains the practice's limited company. There are notable loopholes in Irish dental legislation that enable maverick practices to occur.

My advice after the above experience is to stay local even if more expensive

It is by far cheaper and safer to have your dental implants done in Dublin for only €1249.00. Travelling abroad has too many inherent dangers.

I had quite a bit of dental work done in Sofia about two years ago.  It was at a small private clinic and very reasonable.  Results were excelent too. My mother has been there since and she's delighted with her tresatment.  Could point you in the right direction if you want?

I need to have a gap at the back side of my mouth and I waas suggested to have an implant there. They offered me a price for implant and crown together for €1350. This seems to be reasonable to me. Does anybody hear anything a dental surgery in Hungary? I need some opinion before decide to start any serious work.

I don’t know much about Ireland, but I did my dental treatment in Toronto. I am not sure about the cost but I must appreciate my dentist for his work! I needed 2 dental implants and I was deadly scared. But my doctor was a kind person and throughout my treatment I didn’t have to suffer much as people always complained. Most importantly he was a holistic doctor. It is always better to consult a holistic doctor because they can relate you oral health with overall health.(http://www.drwolch.com/)

Dental Implants are coming down in price in Dublin, saw a new site offering the whole package for only €1249. Dentists in Ireland overpay for everything and then charge too much.

Hey Budadent would you mind giving the name of the Dental practice you used in Budapest?

I was quoted nearly €40k in Ireland for the work I needed.  After a lot of research I ended up paying €9k for the same treatment in Bulgaria.  I'm all for buying Irish but this was a no brainer. Irish dentists will tell you that prices are set for implants etc and that a Bulgarian clinic is paying the same for the product there as they would in Ireland.  If that's the case then we are being totaly shafted over here.

Healtyirish, I agree with keeping it irish, but sometimes you just can't afford to. Sometimes it's just so much cheaper elsewere it makes no sense. I'm sure my local dentist will get along just fine, it just means he'll have to change his 5 series BMW every 3 years instead of 2, and his wife will have to drive a yaris instead of a mini.

I still feel that we should be keeping it Iris, in so far as possible at least. I work in Marketing and hate the fact that companies in Ireland are now outsourcing their marketing to companies aborad. We need to keep as manyjobs here as possible. I reckong regardless of where you decide to go for treatment- be it lipo, cosmetic dentistry etc..make sure you personally feel its the right thing to do. Don't feel rushed, take your time and go through the plan in detail and know what you're paying for. From what I hear its not always the case when you travel abroad.

I travelled to Budapest in Hungary to have my dental implants. I travel a lot with my work, did a lot of research and when I found this particular clinic, I was very impressed. All their products give a lifetime guarantee as the manufacturer gives them a lifetime guarantee. Where are Irish dentists buying their products ? No lifetime guarantee here !!! My work is amazing - everybody has commented including my dentist here. I could also claim my tax back.

Ok, so you got flight, lifetime warranty on implants, a fraction of the price, holiday, etc in Bulgaria and for sure they will pay you everything if something fails, again flights, holiday stay, etc and the new materials, etc. The only problem is, the EU wants to make water private and later they´ll introduce air fee, too. Will this be included in the Bulgarian guarantee, too? Nothing against Bulgaria, it´s a beautiful country but I´ve seen crowns from there on friends teeth and it´s not necessary to be a dentist to see if they are of good quality and lifetime guarantee...what is that. It depends on the definition of lifetime warranty. Here is an interesting definition link http://insurance.lovetoknow.com/Lifetime_Warranty 

As I mentioned, there are serious dentists around, much cheaper than in Ireland. I work in production and a real lifetime warranty does not exist and tis for serious reasons. You can´t keep what clients understand under lifetime warranty. And whoever works and manufactures products knows that it is a pure lie. There are so many dentists. I have my dentist in Spain. Get one abroad but make sure he´s honest.

Healthyirish, I don't disagree that there are talented dentists here in ireland. But here's talented dentists in plenty of other countries that charge a fraction of the price! As for the country I mentioned, Malta, if you google "top healthcare by country", you'll find Malta in the top 5. I don't know the price for implants, but my friend went over and I saw his invoice, it was about 20% of the price he was quoted in ireland. Yes, a fifth! And the guy doing the work was the lecturer for dentistry at the college there. Ryanair fly there too.

The implants that I received were the same Swiss brand that I was offered by several dentists in western Europe.  The only difference was cost.  Of course they are going to be cheaper in a country where everything costs less.  As far as the guarantee is concerned, I would rather have a 'lifetime' guarantee than the 5 and ten years I was offered elsewhere.  Yes it is unlikely that they will fail unless my general health deteriorates but it is comforting to know that if I have a problem in eleven years time I will not have the additional worry of dental costs.  I had a minor issue recently and my dentist in Sofia paid for my airfare and other expenses to make sure everything was OK.  That's the kind of guarantee I was hoping for.

Eastern Europe is cheap, too but what about materials. Implants from Ukraine and other countries without Eu cerificate in Bulgaria or Romania. There is a limit in price which is the production cost of the implant and good implants cost money, it is not a screw from a common fabric. I would rather go for quality at good price. That´s the most important thing. And lifetime guarantee is nonsense, what are the conditions???? For the implant if it breaks which is impossible. Let´s say you become old, get diabetis, your teeth are affected and fall out and then your implant, too. How can they give you guarantee? Money back, another implant placed cost free on an ill patient. Wake up, there is no guarantee for that, be sure. I would be were careful with adverts like this...lifetime guarantee. Where do you get that, on a car, your printer, your mobile phone...lifetime guarantee?  And they say you get this on your health which is in gods hands. Wake up folks. Go to a serious clinics abroad. Spain, Germany but without lifetime guarantee. That shows straight away they´ll do everything to get your money. Good luck

My dentist in Bulgaria does implants with lifetime guarantee and top quality ceramic crowns for less than €1000 each. Over the moon with mine and got quoted more than €2500 for the same brand implants in Dublin. No brainer !

See even if we can't win the rugby, we still have some talented dentists here in Ireland! :) Am not from Dublin so had to start from scratch when I moved here- GP, Dentist etc and haven't looked back!

€2000 per implant seems to be the average cost in Ireland and I think that's an outrageous amount if ,really, one can get the same treatment for a quarter of the cost in Spain or Malta where doctors and dentists are highly trained. How can one get details of a good dentist in either country ?

The abutment was 200 and the crown 300 Euros but still cheap. Best to go when it´s not too hot. Avoid Juli and August! I prefer Costa Blanca but Madrid or Barcelona is an option, too.

Hi

I had mine done 2 weeks ago in Seapoint. Two implants with crowns cost me €4000. Procedure was painless. Have temps in now and permanent crowns in 3 months.

Sounds good Dellon.  Was that price including abutments and crowns or just for the implants?

Implants in Spain for 599 Euros can´t be beaten. Holiday and treatment is a great experience and I recommend it to anyone who wants to save money. Thailand is even cheaper but too far.

I traveled to Bulgaria(Sofia) last year and had some pretty extensive work done, including implants.  More than happy with the results.  I looked at various destinations but the clincher was the fact that I came away with permanent teeth in just three days.  Went to a Dublin dentist for a check-up recently and all is good. Definitely a life changer and cost about 30% of what I was quoted over here.

I'd just be worried about aftercare to be honest...what if something went wrong? add in a few trips back to Malta...I don't know to be honest- I'd prefer to know my dentist is close by and also to support Irish!

Dental Implant is best treatment for missing teeth but it is costly as compare to denture.

Hi

I have two crowns on 2 root filled teeth. I would like these teeth extracted and replaced with implants and zirconium crowns here in Dublin. I want to have this done by a dentist who specializes in this procedure and done at a completive price. Has anyone out there any advice or experience on the matter? 

Grateful for any feedback :)

Like I said if you want to support Irish, Seapoint Clinic charge 1895 each. I know a few more people who have gone there for one mising tooth and for a good few missing teeth and they said htey were amazing-I'd be freaked to go abroad in case something went wrong?!!!

Has anyone got implants done at molesworth clinic in Dublin? They seem to be cheapest in Dublin

I can highly recommend Spain. One implant with porcelain crown will cost you around 1100 Euros.

I need 6 implants and have been quoted between 2200 and 3000 per implant. Also need bone grafting which will be extra. I can't afford that type of money so I'm left with no choice but to go abroad now. I was hoping to get them for about 1500 each as I need 6. So Hungary or Spain here I come.

Seapoint Clinic is where my Dad got his dental implants done- he paid 1895 for them, he only had two implants done, found it all very comfortable and is delighted with his result. They are based in Blackrock and seem to specialise in dental implants!

Have read older posts on here regarding dental implants and am wondering if anyone has had any recent dental implant work done in Dublin.  I have been told by my dentist that I need a single implant and the fees for the dental surgeon he works with in Ballsbridge will cost around €3000.00.   So has anyone had similiar work done cheaper and if so could they share their info?

Well i guess traveling to Ireland from USA only for dental implants won't be a wise decision. And if so let me know the total expenditure including travel of dental implants in Ireland, here it cost approximately $2k for single implant so can compare both!
