Perusing the saveondentalcare.org site, I see they offer implants for 1/3 - 1/4 of the going rate in Arizona.

I could save a bundle if I could just buy the hardware at those prices - does anyone know the difference between those listed, and where an American patient can get them?

3i from Biomet USA 730€
Wital Germany 510€
Replace Sweden 850€
Nobel Active Sweden 940€

Since the above prices include the appliance as well as the procedure, it would seem that I could be getting the same devices for a lot less than $1900.

You might want to try these expat web sites where there are extensive threads on all types of health services in France, including dental:

www.angloinfo.com

www.totalfrance.com

As an aside to other posters, dentistry in Budapest is considered an art and has an outstanding worldwide reputation. As an anecdote, I met a couple at the Hilton a few years ago who were there for extensive dental work, second time. I thought it unusual at the time until I did some reading.

I can't get over these "US best in the world" statements--someone ought to check our rankings on the worldwide childbirth infant mortality tables (around 37th), as an example, and factor in what we're paying for all this supposed best in the world medical and dental treatment.

My dental insurance is MetLife and the family plan is about $65 per month with a $50 annual deductible per family.
