Cost of Dental Implants in Bangkok, Thailand


Bangkok has long been renowned as a global hub for dental tourism. This vibrant, modern city offers competitive prices for dental implants, presenting a range of tooth replacement choices. 

  • For instance, a single implant with abutment and standard crown in Australia can range from AUD 4,000 - 6,000 or more; whereas in Bangkok, the same treatment starts at approximately AUD $2,000

This means you can save over 65% on your dental implant procedure.

  • If you require a full mouth restoration, such as All-on-4 implants, prices in Australia start at approximately AUD $30,000 - $40,000 per arch. However, our partner dentists in Bangkok charge as little as AUD $13,000 - $19,000, which covers all essential treatment costs.

The table below shows the estimated average cost of different types of implants available in Bangkok in comparison to the United States:

Type of Implant ProcedureAverage Cost in AustraliaAverage Cost in Thailand
Single Dental Implant (without crown)AUD 3,000 - 4,000AUD 2,000
All-on-4 Implants (per jaw)AUD 30,000 - $40,000 AUD $13,000 - $19,000

Note: The above prices are average figures provided by our network of partner clinics, with averages calculated at the time of writing. Please check our individual clinic listings for current pricing.

Are There Any Hidden Costs?

It's important to note that the figures mentioned are estimates and may vary significantly. In case you require additional treatment prior to the placement of implants, such as extractions or bone grafting due to insufficient bone density, additional costs will be discussed during your consultation at the clinic.

The good news is that most dentists in Bangkok include most or all of these charges in your initial price quote (excluding additional treatments like bone grafting, as mentioned earlier). Charges such as anesthesia costs, doctor's fees, booking charges, medication, and temporary replacement teeth (if necessary) are usually incorporated into your initial quote. 

Our Customer Care Team is available to provide a detailed breakdown of what your dental implant price quote includes.

Dental Implants – Overview, Treatment Options & Advantages


Dental implant treatment involves the surgical placement of artificial tooth roots into the jawbone, effectively replacing missing teeth. These screw-like posts, typically made of titanium or zirconia, are carefully inserted, then fused with the jawbone over the course of several months, creating a solid foundation for attaching a crown, fixed bridge, or other prosthetic devices (replacement teeth).

Compared to traditional dentures and bridges, implants are a more permanent solution, thanks to their excellent strength, durability, and stability. With proper care and regular maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime.

When Are Dental Implants Needed?

You may consider getting dental implants to restore missing teeth or a loose tooth caused by:

  • Decay
  • Severe root fractures
  • Complications from periodontal disease
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Injury
  • Other oral diseases or health conditions

Implants can also be used to replace a loose bridge or denture that has debilitated over time.

Types of Dental Implant Solutions for Missing Teeth

  • Single Implant with Crown: This procedure involves the placement of a single post into the jawbone through a surgical process. It requires several months of healing to allow for osseointegration, where the implant fuses with the bone. Once the integration is complete, an abutment is attached to the implant, which then connects to a custom-made crown (ie. the “false” or replacement tooth) that matches the natural teeth surrounding it.

  • All-on-4: This innovative implant technique is designed to replace all missing teeth in either the upper, lower, or both arches. It involves strategically placing four implants, with the rear implants typically inserted at an angle to maximize bone density and stability. On the same day, a temporary prosthesis can be placed. After osseointegration, a permanent, more durable set of custom-made teeth is attached to the implants.

  • All-on-6: Similar to the All-on-4 technique, All-on-6 requires the placement of six implants instead of four. It is often preferred by dentists when additional stability is required due to bone loss or deterioration – and is generally more expensive.

     
  • Zygomatic Implants: This solution is specifically designed for patients with significant bone loss in the upper jaw. Zygomatic implants involve the placement of longer, specialized screws into the cheekbone, eliminating the need for bone grafting. On the same day of surgery, a full set of temporary teeth (immediate load denture) can be attached to the implants. Later, the patient will return to have the temporary teeth replaced with a more durable version to complete the treatment.

     
  • Implant-Retained Overdenture: This uses a removable prosthesis that is held in place by dental implants instead of being permanently fixed. Also known as a snap-on denture, special locators beneath the denture snap or clip onto slightly smaller dental implants. Typically, two implants are used for the lower jaw, while four to six implants can support an overdenture in the upper jaw.

Benefits of Dental Implant Restorations

Dental implants are considered the optimal solution for replacing missing teeth due to the numerous benefits they offer compared to other alternatives, like dentures or bridges. Key advantages of dental implants include:

  • Natural Look and Feel: Anchored securely into the jawbone with posts that mimic real tooth roots, implants provide the ability to bite and chew with a similar force as natural teeth. This allows you to enjoy your favourite foods without any limitations. 

     
  • Prevention of Bone Loss: When a tooth is lost, the absence of blood flow and jawbone stimulation can lead to bone loss and atrophy. Over time, this can alter your facial appearance, causing sunken cheeks and an older look. Dental implants help this issue by integrating with the jawbone, stimulating blood flow and preventing bone shrinkage. 

     
  • Improved Speech: Traditional dentures may shift or move when talking, leading to speech impediments or a lisp. In contrast, dental implants securely hold the new teeth in place throughout the day, allowing you to speak naturally and confidently.

     
  • Support for Adjacent Teeth: A gap left by a missing tooth can cause other teeth to shift or tilt, slowly resulting in misalignment. Dental implants fill this gap and provide stability, preventing adjacent teeth from moving out of position. 

Single Crown on Implant Procedure


Note: Implant surgery is typically scheduled following a comprehensive examination to ensure the health of your gums and the sufficient density of your jawbone to support the implant. This involves a thorough examination, as well as X-rays, CT scans, and other oral evaluations.

Here is a breakdown of the treatment stages involved in placing a single dental implant with a crown:

Implant Surgery: The first step is the surgical insertion of a titanium implant post into the jawbone. This procedure, which takes one to two hours at the dentist's office, is performed under local anaesthesia to numb the area. IV sedation may also be offered to help patients relax.

Healing Phase: After surgery, a healing period of three to six months is typically observed to allow the implant to fuse with the jawbone (osseointegration) before proceeding with the final restoration. During this time, a temporary crown may be worn to maintain the appearance of a complete smile.

Abutment and Crown Fitting: In the final step, a small flap is reopened in the gumline to expose the securely integrated implant. An abutment is then screwed onto the implant which holds the crown (replacement tooth) securely in place, completing the restoration.

How Should I Prepare?

Prior to dental implant surgery, your dentist will provide instructions to prepare for the procedure, for example:

  • Stop smoking: If you are a smoker, you will be advised to quit smoking for at least six weeks before and after the surgery, as smoking can impair healing and affect sedation levels.
  • Avoid caffeine: It is recommended to avoid caffeine consumption one week before surgery, as it can elevate heart rate and blood pressure.
  • Avoid Alcohol: Alcohol should be avoided at least 72 hours prior to surgery, as it can interfere with sedation.

Patients are also advised to inform their dentist about any medications or supplements they are taking, as this can impact the surgery or healing process.

Post-Surgery Recovery Tips & Considerations:

  • Avoid chewing hard foods for the first 10 days to ensure proper healing.
  • Expect some discomfort during the healing process, which can be managed with pain medication or antibiotics prescribed by your dentist.
  • Minor bleeding, swelling, and bruising around the gums and face are normal after surgery.
  • Dentists recommend using a special floss for dental implants and brushing your teeth at least twice a day to maintain oral hygiene.

Visiting Bangkok as a Dental Tourist


Visiting Bangkok as a dental tourist offers a great opportunity to combine high-quality dental care with the experience of exploring a vibrant and culturally rich city. 

Situated alongside the Chao Phraya River, the Thai capital is famous around the world for its wealth of attractions and activities to explore during your visit. From stunning temples such as Wat Arun and Wat Phra Kaew to bustling markets like Chatuchak Weekend Market and the floating markets, the city has a rich cultural heritage and a vibrant atmosphere. You can indulge in delicious Thai cuisine, experience a traditional Thai massage, shop for souvenirs, or immerse yourself in the bustling nightlife of the city.

Transportation in Bangkok is convenient and affordable, with options like the Skytrain (BTS), subway (MRT), taxis, and tuk-tuks. This makes it easy to navigate the city and visit popular tourist spots, ensuring that your dental trip is not just limited to the dentist’s chair.

In addition, many dental clinics in Bangkok also offer assistance with travel arrangements, including airport transfers and accommodation, to make your trip smooth and hassle-free.

For more information on visiting Bangkok, take a look at our Ultimate Guide to Dentists in Bangkok.

How Many Trips To Bangkok Are Required For Dental Implant Treatment?


Dental implant treatment is generally completed in two stages, each several months apart, so you will be required to make two trips to Bangkok. 

  • During the first trip, the dentist will surgically place the implants (if no bone grafting is required). 
  • During the second trip, the dentist will replace the temporary (or ‘provisional’) crowns or bridges with the permanent, final version. 

For each trip, patients will usually need to stay in Bangkok for at least 5 days. After booking, your chosen dentist will be able to provide a more specific timeframe so you can plan your trip accordingly.

From start to finish, a complete dental implant restoration usually takes three to six months, depending on your oral health and requirements.
