How Much Do Dental Implants Cost in Dubai?


Before we go any further, let’s cut to the chase: how much can international patients expect to pay for dental implant treatment in Dubai compared to back home?

While numerous factors affect total costs (as we’ll look at in more detail), the price table below gives you an idea of how much you’ll save on different kinds of tooth implants in Dubai:

Type of Implant TreatmentAverage Price in the UKAverage Price in the USAAverage Price in Dubai (You Pay)
Dental Implant Only (single tooth)$1,700 - $2,200 (£1,500 - £2,000)$2,000 (£1,800)$1,100 -$2,200 (£1,000 - £2,000)

Why Choose Dubai, UAE for Dental Implants?


Dubai is the United Arab Emirates’ most visited city–welcoming 8.1 million people in the first 7 months of 2022 –and is fast becoming a popular healthcare destination as well. Home to some of the most advanced facilities in the world, the city’s tourist-friendly infrastructure and myriad attractions are just some of the reasons why patients are traveling to this spectacular city for dental care, notwithstanding the expertise of its dentists as we look at below.

Experienced, Internationally Trained Professionals: All the dentists we work with in Dubai have had years of training, are highly skilled in their respective fields and have usually been educated abroad at top dental schools in Europe and North America. Specialists, such as implantologists, are likely to be members or affiliates of internationally-renowned professional organizations, such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

Dubai attracts its fair share of foreign-born dentists too–partly thanks to the lifestyle Dubai promises and partly due to the country’s famously-low income tax rates. The sector is highly competitive; thus, only the best dentists are allowed to work in the emirate.

World-Class Facilities: Private dental facilities in Dubai are generally excellent–and you’ll only see the top-rated options listed here on Dental Departures. Clinics are modern and equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, including digital radiography, 3D/CT scanning and computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM). Some dental centers in the city cater to a small clientele with only a couple of high-tech treatment rooms–thus adding a more personalized touch to their care–while others can be found within large, multi-disciplinary hospitals, with these typically offering a broad range of smile reconstruction and oral surgeries.

Competitive Prices: While Dubai is not known for promising the same jaw-droppingly low prices as other global dental tourism destinations, like Thailand or Mexico, patients visiting from the USA, Australia, the UK and certain EU nations can still expect to make decent savings in Dubai, particularly when traveling for dental implant treatment. For instance, a full arch restoration on 4 implants (fixed prosthesis) will typically cost around 40-60% less in Dubai compared to treatment at top practices in London, New York, LA and Sydney.

Other Reasons to Consider Dubai for Your New Teeth

Thanks to its strategic position on the map, you will easily find direct flights available to Dubai from around the world, including nearly 10 in the UK, Paris, Berlin, and both East and West Coast of the USA, Toronto, Vancouver, and Australia’s Gold Coast.

English is widely spoken, so you won’t face any communication problems.

As a global center of excellence for dental care, Dubai offers a number of expert techniques that are difficult to find in other countries; this includes genuine same-day implants, where the permanent crown or bridge is loaded to the implant(s) that day–no return trip required.

A growing number of clinics in Dubai are solely focused on welcoming international patients, and subsequently offer a number of extras to help each trip go smoothly, like free airport transfers and accommodation packages.

The United Arab Emirates has favorable entry requirements for dental tourists; UK, USA, Australian and EU passport holders need not apply for a formal visa before arriving.

Prices of Different Types of Dental Implants in Dubai


The price of any implant treatment depends on a number of factors, such as:

  • The number of teeth or arches of teeth being replaced
  • The type of prosthetic device being used, eg. crown, overdenture, partial bridge or full-arch bridge
  • The type of implant used, eg. conventional, immediate-load or zygomatic implants
  • The material used for the crowns, eg. gull porcelain, all-ceramic, porcelain fused to metal, zirconia)
  • Additional surgical treatments required before implants can be placed, such as a bone graft or extractions.
  • The reputation of the clinic/dentist

Types of Dental Implant Treatment

Single dental implants: These are used to replace individual missing, damaged or decayed teeth. Acting as a substitute tooth root, a titanium implant is placed in a small hole above where the missing tooth used to be; this is done under local anesthesia by drilling into the jawbone, which is accessed by cutting a small flap of tissue in the gum line. The patient may then be fitted with an immediate-load, temporary crown. After a healing period of between 3-6 months, the patient returns to the dentist for stage two. Here, the flap in the gum is opened up again so that the permanent crown can be affixed to the implant screw using an adjoining abutment.

Full-arch implants: Using four, five or six implants (depending on viable bone density), this “All-on-X” technique involves a similar surgical procedure as to the one required for single implants. Instead of supporting a crown (replacement tooth), multiple implants are used to support a full-arch fixed bridge that can hold a full row of crowns. It should be noted that any remaining teeth must be extracted prior to the placement of implants. A full mouth restoration will involve dual-arch surgery, in which both top and bottom rows are operated on one after the other (same day).

Zygomatic implants: For those with diminished bone density, zygomatic implant treatment is seen as a last resort–but for many works just as well. These longer, specialized implants are placed into the zygomatic bone instead of the jawbone, and four are typically used per row to replace an entire arch of teeth with a custom-made, fixed prosthesis.

Mini implants: Smaller in size compared to traditional/conventional implants, these implants can be used for smaller teeth or as anchors to stabilize removable overdentures. Rather than needing the help of an abutment to hold the teeth in place, elastic O-rings over a ball at the top are used to keep false teeth securely in place; this reduces the discomfort or embarrassment caused by dentures moving or falling out.

Dental Implant Prices in Dubai:

Type of TreatmentAverage Price in Dubai (in USD/GBP)
Standard dental implant (only)$1,100 - 2,200 (£1,000 - 2,000)
Implant with crown and abutment$2,200 - 4,500 (£2,000 - 4,000)
All-on-4 (full-arch fixed bridge on 4 implants)$8,500 - 12,000 (£8,000 - 11,000)
All-on-6 (full-arch fixed bridge on 6 implants)$12,800 - 17,000 (£12,000 - 16,000)
Implant-supported overdenture with 2 or 4 implants (removable)$3,200 - 5,500 (£3,000 - 5,000)
Mini-implant$550 (£500)

Same Day Implants in Dubai

Genuine same day or “one day” implants only require one surgical procedure and therefore can be completed in a single trip to Dubai. Only available at a select number of clinics around the world, these specialized–and far more expensive–implants can be loaded with a permanent crown or fixed bridge just a few hours after being placed into the jawbone. Patients are not required to return to the dentist for their gums to be opened up again (for the temporary to be replaced with the permanent) as per the course of treatment for conventional implants.

Note: For this specialty treatment in the UAE, check out SameDay Implants Dubai, one of only 14 clinics in the world to have been awarded the status of Branemark Osseointegration Centre by Professor Branemark, the Swedish founder of dental implantology. Just be warned: these are not the cheapest dental implants in Dubai…

About Visiting Dubai for Dental Care


People may know this Middle Eastern city best for its spectacular architecture–home to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building–megamalls and the searing desert heat–but one common question people have is whether Dubai is a suitable destination for medical or dental tourists.

And as one of the healthcare sector’s experts, we can confirm it certainly is.

This spectacular city has been a popular tourist destination for some years, offering visitors luxurious hotels—whether that’s within the main metropolitan area, on the marina, outside in the more laidback suburbs or next to the coast in a resort. In fact, it’s the only place in the world with an 8* hotel!

Dubai really does have everything you need for a great stay, including international restaurants, fantastic shopping and all sorts of activities from theme parks to sky-diving.

You will also discover beaches, trips into the desert and the narrow streets of Old Dubai to explore, which is reinventing itself as an artsy neighbourhood.

For dental tourists, all the infrastructure is there to enable you to combine your trip for dentures with a holiday.

Nearby Destinations:

As well as the stunning skyline, shopping malls and five-star resorts in the city, visitors can also check these interesting spots just a short drive or taxi ride away :

  • Bastakiya, 5 miles (9 km)

Implant Procedures: What Else Should I Know?


The implant is left in situ for a number of months during which time it will fuse with the jaw in a process called osseointegration. During this part of the procedure, you will need to stay in Dubai for around 5-7 days, sometimes longer, depending on the complexity of the treatment.

When you return to see your dentist in Dubai for the final stage of your implant procedure, the dentist will simply open up the gum again (under general anesthetic) and attach an abutment to the implant, which is a post that protrudes through the gum. The gum is stitched around the abutment and the replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the post, completing the procedure. You will be required to stay in Dubai for around 3-5 days for this part of the procedure.

Who Can Benefit From Dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth, whether one, two or several, a dental implant might be the perfect solution. The implant is made from titanium, which is biocompatible with our bodies and has been used in medical applications for decades. Most patients are good candidates for treatment but you will need to be in good general health and have no bone loss in your jaw.

Implants and Bone Loss

Bone loss is typically caused by periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease, which compromises the supporting structures, including gums and bone surrounding the teeth. As the disease progresses, there is less to hold the teeth in place, so the teeth become loose, eventually falling out.

If you have lost teeth through bone loss, then you may not be a good candidate for a dental implant, although it may be possible to have the treatment if you have a bone graft. However, the bone graft is a separate procedure , which will entail months of rehabilitation to allow the bone to regenerate before the implant treatment.

In these such cases, you may also want to look into the possibility of a full-arch restoration with longer zygomatic implants.

Smoking and Dental Implants

Other unsuitable candidates for dental implants are smokers. Smoking reduces blood flow, which means essential nutrients and oxygen needed to fight infection and for healing do not get to the cells where they are required.

Although this is a potential risk throughout the life of your implant, it is more so when your implant has first been fitted when your body’s natural infection-fighting mechanisms are under extra stress.

Single dental implants: These are used to replace individual missing, damaged or decayed teeth. Acting as a substitute tooth root, a titanium implant is placed in a small hole above where the missing tooth used to be; this is done under local anesthesia by drilling into the jawbone, which is accessed by cutting a small flap of tissue in the gum line.

Instead of supporting a crown (replacement tooth), multiple implants are used to support a full-arch fixed bridge that can hold a full row of crowns.

Same Day Implants in Dubai

Genuine same day or “one day” implants only require one surgical procedure and therefore can be completed in a single trip to Dubai. Only available at a select number of clinics around the world, these specialized–and far more expensive–implants can be loaded with a permanent crown or fixed bridge just a few hours after being placed into the jawbone. Patients are not required to return to the dentist for their gums to be opened up again (for the temporary to be replaced with the permanent) as per the course of treatment for conventional implants.

Implant Procedures: What Else Should I Know?


The implant is left in situ for a number of months during which time it will fuse with the jaw in a process called osseointegration. During this part of the procedure, you will need to stay in Dubai for around 5-7 days, sometimes longer, depending on the complexity of the treatment.

When you return to see your dentist in Dubai for the final stage of your implant procedure, the dentist will simply open up the gum again (under general anesthetic) and attach an abutment to the implant, which is a post that protrudes through the gum. The gum is stitched around the abutment and the replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the post, completing the procedure. You will be required to stay in Dubai for around 3-5 days for this part of the procedure.

Who Can Benefit From Dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth, whether one, two or several, a dental implant might be the perfect solution. The implant is made from titanium, which is biocompatible with our bodies and has been used in medical applications for decades. Most patients are good candidates for treatment but you will need to be in good general health and have no bone loss in your jaw.

Implants and Bone Loss

Bone loss is typically caused by periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease, which compromises the supporting structures, including gums and bone surrounding the teeth. As the disease progresses, there is less to hold the teeth in place, so the teeth become loose, eventually falling out.

If you have lost teeth through bone loss, then you may not be a good candidate for a dental implant, although it may be possible to have the treatment if you have a bone graft. However, the bone graft is a separate procedure , which will entail months of rehabilitation to allow the bone to regenerate before the implant treatment.

In these such cases, you may also want to look into the possibility of a full-arch restoration with longer zygomatic implants.

Smoking and Dental Implants

Other unsuitable candidates for dental implants are smokers. Smoking reduces blood flow, which means essential nutrients and oxygen needed to fight infection and for healing do not get to the cells where they are required.

Although this is a potential risk throughout the life of your implant, it is more so when your implant has first been fitted when your body’s natural infection-fighting mechanisms are under extra stress.
