You are welcome Jenni! My husband went to Russia (he is Russian, which makes it much easier) and ended up paying 1,200 for 3 implants and crowns. According to the dentists in Russia as well as in France, going abroad for implants is only advisable if you have excellent jawbone density, are basically healthy and not prone to aches, pains and allergies, and if you take the type of implant which has the lowest rejection rate (Nobel, apparently). It is also important to have a place to stay at where you feel safe and comfortable as there can be delays (implants, healing, crowns…).
I know someone who needed 10 implants (not his "fault" at all, he only had first teeth, and they gave up when he was in his 30's) and as social security refused to pay for them in France, he went to India. He is happy and the work was well done, but he had to hang around a lot waiting for the implants to be delivered, for his gums to heal, for the crowns to be delivered and so on…. He didn't mind, but I know that I would be terribly nervous, especially if I had to call several companies and courier services to track his teeth down, as he did!
There is another solution, which is calling your closest dental school and finding out if they can do implants for you. I do know someone who managed to get them done this way, with excellent results and a nice low price, but in Marseille the waiting list was just too long for us!
