[quote=“synchen”]Does Anyone have any experience with dental implants in Taipei? How much do they cost and how many visits does the procedure require? I live in Shanghai but I am thinking about traveling back to Taiwan for this procedure.
I was quoted between 70 and 80K for an implant. I finally took the 80K quote once I was confident in the dentist. The cheaper quote was done by a dentist that seemed to cut corners too often so I never committed to the operation.
The initial operation is the big op. It will be several hours when the do the actual implant. And then 6 months later you get the actual crown. It would definitely require 2 trips but it’s difficult to say how long each trip would require.
1st - a consultation
2nd - implant procedure - could be days later or months
3rd - fitting the crown (6 months later)
4th - getting the crown (a week or less)
I believe I also had a checkup a month after the implant checking to see if the bone was healing correctly (X-rays) and shortly after fitting the crown. Not sure what you would do if there were some minor issues. It seems like a lot of trouble to go through but it’s not a trivial operation either.
I did this at Art Dentistry on Zihyou near Mingcheng Rd (north of new Costco) in Kaohsiung. Dr. Hong.
