A growing number of older Americans aged 55 and over are travelling to Hungary for much needed dental treatment.
Many of these American people would not normally consider having dental treatment outside of their own country but the damage to their nest egg from the global recession means that they don’t have time for the financial markets to recover. Americans are not travelling the 10,000 mile round trip and 10 hours each way in a aeroplane just for a filling. They are travelling to destinations in Hungary such as Budapest, Mosonmagyarovar, Sopron, Gyor and Szombathely for major restorative and cosmetic dental treatment. Often these treatments include full circle bridges and dental implants which are expensive in the U.S.
In Hungary you should expect less than half price for the same quality branded materials. Many Americans either in retirement or approaching retirement want to enjoy life which means getting rid of those nasty dentures and getting crowns supported by dental implants so that they can enjoy those 16oz steaks again. Life is for living and food must be enjoyed which is difficult if you have dentures or a vast amount of missing teeth. These Americans feel the need to be frugal with their money and they don’t have a decade to wait for the recession to pass by.
Travelling to Hungary for low price dental treatment allows many Americans to have the treatment they want, see some of Europe and keep their savings pretty much intact. Americans travelling to Hungary for dental treatment is not a new idea at all. Due to dwindling insurance benefits Hungary has attracted many American patients over the last 7 years. Now the Hungarian forint is at its lowest for a long time so accommodation, food and entertainment whilst you are in Hungary will go quite a way.
A full circle bridge consisting of 14 teeth on the upper jawbone will cost $11,200 in the US.
In Hungary the same treatment will cost $4,300.
A patient who has no teeth on the upper jawbone will pay $25,600 in the U.S for 8 dental implants to support a 14 unit bridge. Some dentists in the US will charge an extra $4000 as 8 of those crowns will be implant crowns.
Expect to pay $10,740 in Hungary. A growing number of American dentists are charging anything from $599 TO $600 extra if your new crown happens to attach to a dental implant. In Hungary this practice is not normal and in most places you will find implant crowns the same price as normal crowns.
