Sufficient bone in the jaw is required to support dental implants and to enable the process of osseointegration. If the bone lacks height or width either because of wearing out of or a traumatic injury, then bone grafts are used in a process called bone augmentation.
Bone grafts for dental implants abroad are economical in countries like Costa Rica, Mexico, India, Thailand and El Salvador. The advantage is not only cost savings but quality dental treatment by proficient dentists.
The cost of bone grafts for dental implants could vary enormously depending on the kind of graft. It can be a pretty expensive procedure if you are not insured (even if you are, you need to check if bone grafts are covered with your insurance provider)
This is why more and more people are now traveling abroad for bone grafts because the cost of bone graft is a fraction of the US prices. Along with the cost savings come other advantages like superior quality of dental treatment, English-speaking dentists and top-notch hospitals.
