Report: European dental implant prices fall 3.3 percent

from Dr. Bicuspid

Average selling prices of dental implant fixtures and final abutments have decreased 3.3 percent and 8.1 percent, respectively, over the past year, according to a new report from Millennium Research Group. This occurred as dentists attempted to maintain profitability during the economic crisis by demanding greater discounts and increasingly purchasing implants from low-cost manufacturers, MRG said. In many European countries, dental implants are an out-of-pocket expense for patients, with little to no reimbursement from healthcare plans, with the exception of Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium, which offer partial reimbursement. Dental implant surgeries are considered elective because the loss of a tooth does not typically inhibit the ability to eat or speak. (May require free registration to view article.) more
