dental costs information

This is a general price list based and
can be used as a pretty accurate guide to
dental prices throughout the Czech Republic


Dental services description
and price list for dental treatment in the Czech Republic



You can also use this price list as a guideline to estimate the overall costs ( more or less) for any dental treatment you may decide to have elsewhere in the Czech Republic.
If any dentist elsewhere in the Czech Republic charges much more than these prices included - then find another dentist.

Do bear in mind that each Czech dentist or dental surgery listed on this site may have prices that vary very slightly but when you contact the dentist of your choice - if you are clear about the dental treatment you will be needing - the dentist will let you have his final cost estimate for the treatment.

And you should get this costs estimate before you make plans to coming to the Czech Republic for your dental repairs.

Dental treatment description and price list for dental treatment in the Czech Republic

General exploratory visit
Which basically means the dentist checks out your teeth, gums and mouth.
A panoramic x-ray is taken and then between the examination and the x-ray the dentist will analyse what needs to be done.

Also included in this is the cost quote or the adding up of all the probable dental treatment needed to get a final costs figure.

And finally a timeline will be decided upon and how many appointments you need during your dental visit
All this is the so called dental plan.

This means before any dental work is done the patient has a very precise idea of what all will cost (same as prices in this dental price list but tailored to each patient's needs) and how long or how many visits will be necessary to get the dental treatment done.

We suggest you get this done at your own dentist so that you already know what you need to have done before you come over here.
You will get an examination and x-ray when you come over here in any case.
But some people like a second opinion or unfortunately, others just can't get their local dentist to part with the x-rays.
Time needed: usually about 40 minutes, sometimes even 2 hours.
Czech Crowns 2.400


Close up Oral X-ray and analysis (one take)
This consists of having the problem area x-rayed and analysed from close up.
Czech dentists have a digital x-ray set up and as soon as they take the x-ray, the result is visible on their computer screens right next to the dentist's chair where you are sitting.
Time needed: 3 minutes
Czech Crowns 300


Complete head-surround panoramic X-ray and analysis (both your jawbones and teeth)
You get this in the initial examination but it may be necessary at some other point during your treatment again - for example after getting implants inserted, a panoramic x-ray is taken to see how everything looks.
This consists of having an x-ray scanner go round in a circle around your head whilst taking a panoramic x-ray in one simple take.
Usually used before doing implants or dental bridges and gives the dentist a complete picture. This is included in the basic analysis exploratory visit but sometimes a separate take is needed.
In most cases, where more than just one filling needs to be done a panoramic x-ray will be taken as of default.
Useful to see the jaw-bone structure, if any bone cysts are present, deep rooted infections and periodontal disease of the gums can also be so detected.
Time needed: 3 minutes
Czech Crowns 605


Tartar, plaque cleaning and removal.
Ever had to clean a toilet with calc remover to get rid of all those yellow sediments that accumulate in the nooks and crannies? Or had to change the heating element in your washing machine as the old one is encrusted with white sediment ?
This is similar to the tartar that accumulates if you don't clean your teeth every time you breathe. Or at least if you don't clean your teeth properly.
Plaque causes tartar and tartar causes decay or worse still - periodontal gum disease.
The treatment is done by a sonic vibrating spatule that scrapes off the plaque and tartar using ultrasound and water.
Also included is sand cleaning (air flow and sand) which is a circular rotating brush dipped into a sandy paste applied to all teeth to clean and get the teeth shiny.
Time needed: 40 minutes
All teeth:
Czech Crowns 2.600


Amalgamate filling with local anaesthetic
Amalgamate fillings are cheaper than photocomposit since they are metallic /silver coloured and not white.
Usually used for back-facing fillings or teeth not directly visible when you say cheese.
Other dentists will quote you accordingly if it's a 1, 2, 3 or 4 surface filling.
Other dentists will charge extra for the anaesthetic.
In Kromeriz and Zlin an amalgamate filling is 1 amalgamate filling irrespective of how many surfaces:
Time needed: 1 hour or less
Czech Crowns 920


Photocomposit filling with local anaesthetic
Photocomposit fillings are white hence aesthetically more appealing than amalgamate ones.
Some dentists will charge extra for the anaesthetic.

Time needed: 1 hour or less
Czech Crowns 1.265


Simple extraction with local anaesthetic
Simple as in easy, uncomplicated to extract.
Time needed: 1 to 30 minutes
Czech Crowns 990


Complicated extraction with local anaesthetic
Complicated as in not as easy as simple.
Time needed: 30 min to 1 hour
Czech Crowns 3.300


Root canal treatment
(1 root canal)
Meaning the medication and cleaning of roots out of teeth canals. Also known as de-vitalization. Usually done when the root is decayed.
Time needed: 1 hour or less
1 root canal
Czech Crowns 990


Teeth Bleaching & dental laser whitening
Three options:
Chemical bleaching done by dentist in one sitting
Chemical - done mostly by patient at home
Laser whitening - see further down below

[ Note from Pete on teeth whitening:
I have had chemical bleaching done with great success in 2004 and have considered having laser bleaching next time round but have since been informed that whereas the chemical bleaching is done gradually over about 10 days (at home by yourself - see below) - laser whitening is done within 30 minutes in one sitting and can be pretty strong.
What it does is it basically makes the whitening elements already inside a tooth explode to have a faster effect of getting the teeth whiter - the down side is that it's not very kind on the teeth and is like putting them into a microwave oven.
Personally I'm not a dentist but I certainly won't be letting a laser near my mouth in any foreseeable future - but do ask your dentists ]


Chemical bleaching done by the dentists:
The dentist uses dental bleaching gel and the blue light on your teeth.
Same effect as bleaching done by patient at home but is faster, stronger and more expensive
Time needed: About 50 minutes
one jaw
Czech Crowns 4.320


Chemical bleaching Process done by patient at home:
This is a chemical process which enhances teeth whiteness.
Upper and lower teeth casts are taken and rubber 'teeth-gloves' made for both upper and lower teeth.

Before fitting on teeth the front inner parts of these gloves are filled with whitening bleaching liquid.

These teeth-gloves prevent the bleaching liquid being washed away by saliva or tongue or worse, bleaching your gums white.
The teeth-gloves basically fit around the teeth and being thin and rubbery, do not cause discomfort.
Basically, teeth gloves are like boxer's teeth guards but much thinner and made of transparent rubbery material.

First your teeth are cleaned, the casts are taken and teeth gloves made by the next day.
The next day at the dentist when the rubbery teeth gloves are ready the dentist will show you how to apply the gel inside the gloves and then insert them into your mouth

Then you are given the teeth-gloves and the bleaching liquid kit for your own application at home - which is the same procedure as shown to you by the dentist's.
The gloves are filled slightly with the bleaching liquid and fitted on the teeth and worn for sessions of about 1 hour for a duration of 10 days or less depending on you and when you decide your teeth are whiter.
During these sessions you can go about your daily business but obviously eating and /or kissing someone is not advisable whilst wearing the bleach.
The result is white teeth.
Time needed: First day 20 minutes for casts to be taken and rubber teeth gloves prepared by laboratory for next day.
And then once daily for 1 hour by yourself at home for the next 10 days using the bleaching kit and the teeth gloves that you are given.
Pete's Tip:
Do one jaw for about a week and then you will notice the difference in whiteness between the jaw that has been done and the other jaw.
A great way to actually verify that this system works and really does whiten your teeth.
1 complete bleaching kit plus teeth gloves costs:
Czech Crowns 4.620


Teeth Laser whitening treatment
Done by dentist using a Star Trek like laser device.
20 teeth:
Time needed: 30 minutes
Czech Crowns 8.450


Periodontal gum disease treatment
If you insert a thin nail between a tooth and the gum and push - if the nail goes in several millimetres - you've got paradonthosis (periodontal gum disease).
Do get your dentists to stick the nail in for you.
Periodontal gum disease causes painful gums and the worse it gets, the sooner your teeth will fall out as they lose the support of the gum that holds them.
This treatment involves a long thin rotating drill inserted between the gum and teeth and via water/disinfectant liquid and the rotating movement of the drill the area is cleaned and the paradonthosis can be stopped or at least delayed.
Does not hurt or can be done under local anaesthetic if you are too sensitive.
Usually one session is enough but in advanced gum disease a further session may be advisable 6 months later.
Time needed: each tooth 5 minutes
One Jaw first session:
Czech Crowns 3.300

One Jaw further sessions:
Czech Crowns 1.560


Photocomposit build up
As the term implies, a photocomposite buildup consist of building up a tooth with photocomposite (white) dental material, similar as that used for photocomposite fillings.
This basically is bigger than a filling and smaller than a crown.
Photocomposite buildup is used mainly to build up a tooth that is still strong and healthy for the most part, but - has for example cracked at the top or due to decay a larger part has had to be filed away.
So if a filling would not be enough, and a crown not yet necessary, then a photocomposite build up is implemented.
Also sometimes, photocomposite buildup is used instead of a temporary resinal crown if the next dental appointment is farther away time wise than the short time a temporary resinal crown would last.

Time needed: even 2 hours if necessary
one tooth build up :
Czech Crowns 2.400


Full Ceramic Crowns / metal ceramic crowns
also called Full porcelain crowns / metal porcelain crowns

Once a tooth is too decayed to be filled, it is 'capped' by a crown. This consists of partial removal of the upper part of the tooth or filing it down a bit, possible root canal cleaning and even a filling and then the setting of a permanent crown on top of old tooth or what remained of it - in a permanent manner.
A molded cast is taken of your mouth and a orthodontic laboratory specialist creates an exact porcelain replica of the tooth to be replaced.
If it's a metal ceramic crown, the base is of metal and porcelain is baked onto this.
If it's a full ceramic crown, this takes the lab more time but the whole crown is made of ceramic / porcelain.
Most patients opt for metal ceramic, as they are a bit cheaper, and also more hardy.
Full Ceramic crowns /metal ceramic crowns are white and are colour combined with the general colour of your other teeth.
The crown is then fitted and if needed re-elaborated by the technician or dentist (filed) to get a perfect fit and chewing grip before being cemented into place for good.

Time needed:
Between the making of the casts and preparing the tooth for the crown - which can take from 30 to 90 minutes- a period of about 2 to 3 days elapses for the crown to be made by the laboratory.
The crown fitting and setting on the fourth day takes about 30 minutes.
For more crowns like 3 or more add another day or two for the lab to get them all made.
To be on the safe side if getting more than 2 crowns you should calculate 1 working week in Kromeriz or Zlin

1 Full Ceramic Crown
Czech Crowns 9.600

1 Metal Ceramic Crown
Czech Crowns 7.590

99% of dental patients who come over here chose metal ceramic crowns.
I myself also opt for these.


Temporary resinal bridge or single tooth
Whilst the crown is being made you get a temporary resinal tooth (or teeth) made to fill in any gaping hole/s and to avoid the filed tooth splitting.

There are two types of temporary resinal bridges or teeth.
Single temporary teeth where just for 1 or 2 days the dentists will make one temporary tooth to fill in any one single gap before the crown is ready.
This is basically a tooth-from-the-tube molded ready to wear temporarily for a few days.
This can be a false tooth inserted for a temporary and aesthetical purpose.
Consists of paste gelatin ceramic being modeled onto a filed tooth or around existing teeth to fill in a gaping hole in your smile whilst a crown is being prepared or while root and canal healing and medication takes place and also to avoid the remaining part of the tooth in preparation splitting.
The paste is hardened solid by an ultraviolet laser light in about 3 minutes and you can chew on that tooth comfortably.

The second type is a temporary bridge consisting of more teeth - so for example if you are having a 6 tooth bridge done - then the 6 or 7 days wait for the lab to prepare the final ceramic bridge you would be going around with 6 teeth missing or partially missing as these have been filed down and prepared to receive the final bridge.
So unless you don't mind going around with a gaping hole in your mouth for a few days (Hi Stewart) then you can get a temporary bridge prepared a day before all the filing is done on the teeth and then get this cemented into place whilst waiting for the rest.
Possibly avoiding hard foodstuffs or opening beer bottles with the teeth for the period it's there.
1 resinal tooth =
Czech Crowns 690

A temporary resinal bridge of up to 6 teeth =
Czech Crowns 1.980

A temporary resinal bridge of more than 6 teeth =
Czech Crowns 3.960

[ see further down for more on ceramic bridges]


Dental Inlays of metal or glass fibre pins inserted into teeth roots to strengthen the fitting of a ceramic crown:
Metal inlays are not to be confused with implants.

When a tooth root is still there but the top part of the tooth has been degraded too much by decay or has just simply split and broken, then metal inlays or glass fibre inlays are inserted into the remaining root, and the ceramic crown is then fitted onto these.
Glass fibre inlays are used when the root is still strong.
In case the root is not at it's best then metal inlays are used.
The cost for glass fibre or metal inlays is the same.
The moral here is that in some cases, to save the rest of a tooth instead of extracting it and having to get implants, inlays are used as a last resort so if you think you may need crowns, then you may also have to get inlays.

Time needed: depends and it's a fiddly job
One glass fiber or one metal inlay:
Czech Crowns 1.980


Short or few teeth- Metal ceramic Bridge:
A bridge is when adjacent teeth need crowns but there is still enough of some of the teeth to have a bridge of say 3 crowns made and cemented onto the remaining teeth.
So say you have a missing tooth, and the teeth on either side of the gap are decayed - then the three teeth bridge is cemented onto the two adjacent teeth next to the gap and the middle bridge tooth covers the gap.
Time needed: First day to prepare the teeth for the bridge, cast taken and temporary bridge of teeth inserted. About 2 hours.

3 to 4 days wait for the metal part of the bridge to be made by the lab.

Then second session where the metal bridge is fitted and adjusted to fit perfectly - about 30 minutes.

Then 1 day wait for the lab to smalt onto the metal structure the ceramic teeth and the day after one last session for final permanent cementing and any filing down to ensure a perfect chew. 30 minutes.
Price varies but for example a 3 crown bridge - which means the end result is same as having 3 adjacent crowns done costs
Czech Crowns 21.180

How to calculate
the cost of a dental bridge.

Once root canals have been cleaned if necessary, any roots or decayed teeth removed, if necessary glass fibre or metal inlay pins inserted - the cost of a bridge may be calculated as follows.

For every supporting tooth that is still there and acts as a support post for the bridge the crown part of the bridge that fits on top costs:
Czech Crowns 7.590

(same as the cost for metal Ceramic Crowns )

For every tooth that is missing (gone) the intermittent tooth which is also part of the bridge but does not act as a support post and hangs between the other teeth costs
Czech Crowns 6.000

So say you need an 6 teeth bridge where 3 teeth are partially still there and 3 teeth are missing the cost would be :
Czech Crowns 40.770


Full component overdenture bridge.
This is basically a whole jaw of teeth with implants included.
Between 10 to 12 teeth which are fixed to a metal base which is then screwed onto 5 or 6 implants.
This is the solution most dental patients who come here opt for - who have for example no upper teeth and are wearing a removable denture.
Or maybe they have two last teeth that need extracting in one jaw.
They get five or six implants (see below for costs of implants) and then this full component bridge which is made in the lab as one whole piece.
The advantage of this type of bridge over a less extensive bridge which can be glued onto remaining teeth or between an implant and remaining teeth is that this bridge is screwed onto all the implants.
If anything happens to the bridge say in 15 years time like one of the teeth cracks - then the whole piece can be removed and fixed in the lab.
Glued on bridges, if removed for repair will endanger all the teeth they are glued to during forced removal
One complete 10 or 12 teeth metal ceramic full component bridge costs:
Czech Crowns 94.875


Prothesis (Dentures - False teeth)
Meaning false removable teeth either top or bottom.

A complete set of upper dentures for example is made up of a palate mount, onto which all the teeth are fixed - so basically you insert and remove a full set of gnashers.
This intends that any other work necessary to accommodate the false teeth has been done.
Time needed: 5 to 7 days
Czech Crowns 9.625


Partial Prothesis
(partial dentures or false teeth)

Partial means you have 3 teeth missing here and 4 teeth missing there. These are removable teeth and slide in and hook onto existing teeth when worn.
This intends that any other work necessary to accommodate the dentures has been done.
Basically same as above despite the fact that the work involved (by the dental lab) can be even more complex for fewer false teeth then for the whole lot.
Time needed: 5 to 7 days
Czech Crowns 9.625


Anti - Bruxism protection
A rubber-resin removable insertion protective pad that people who suffer from Bruxism (unconscious gnashing of the teeth during sleep) use during the night.
It is fitted manually onto the upper teeth at night and does not cause discomfort.
Time needed: first session on day 1 to take the cast (impression) for the rubber teeth glove (usually only one for the upper teeth)
Ready either same day or at latest next day.
Czech Crowns 1.980


Porcelain veneers - dental veneers

[ Note from Pete on Veneers.
We once had a patient wanting 8 Veneers.
This young man had PERFECT teeth with just a very small gap between two of them.
But the gap and teeth structure was such that the dentist refused to give him a veneer as he said this would split or crack in no time.
The patient decided to get a crown instead.

Moral of this fable ?
The moral is that many dentists make millions on flogging you veneers knowing that they will split or crack and you will be back for more - so do get a good dentist over where you are to give you a honest opinion and get him to give you a money back guarantee (written) that if you had the veneers done by him they would last at least for 5 years.
My bet is that no dentist will give you such a guarantee but if he does - then come over here to get them done at a quarter of the cost.
Otherwise - get into a mind set under which you understand that veneers are for Hollywood employees only who can afford to get them done every 6 months]

Anyway, here are Dental Veneers explained and their costs:
Porcelain veneers, or dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin shells of porcelain which are bonded (glued) onto the front side of teeth so to make a cosmetic improvement in their appearance.
For example in the case of really skewed and irregular teeth.
Porcelain veneers are routinely used to idealize teeth that are discoloured, worn, chipped, or misaligned and they create a very life-like tooth appearance.

You might be surprised to learn that while a major component of teeth is enamel, it is not solid enamel. The enamel component of a tooth is actually only an outer shell.

Porcelain veneers resist staining.
Cosmetic dental bonding materials utilized in the past had the shortcoming of being susceptible to staining and discolouring. This was especially a problem for those people whose teeth had excessive exposure to tea, coffee, red wine, or cigarette smoking. A significant advantage of porcelain veneers over other types of cosmetic dental bonding is related to the fact that a porcelain veneer's surface is just that, porcelain. Since porcelain is a ceramic, and therefore glass-like, its surface is extremely smooth and impervious. This means that the surface of a porcelain veneer will not pick up permanent stains
[ --- but they might crack --pete]
Time needed: at least 3 sessions.
Day one filing of teeth and cast taking.
3 to 4 days to get the veneers made by the lab.
Day two and Day three veneers are fitted.
So after day one, one could go and visit Prague and come back 4 days later or even a week later to get the last two sessions done.
One veneer ( for one tooth)

Dental Implants - Swedish Titanium bolts and ceramic crowns on top of them

What is a dental implant ?
A dental implant is basically a titanium bolt screwed into the jawbone and then a metal ceramic crown is screwed onto this bolt.

The procedure of implanting a dental implant can actually be very simple.

Getting the dental implant on your first appointment:
X-rays are taken to evaluate if you really need an implant or if it is viable to get one.
[ Sometimes patients who have been told they need an implant can actually just have a bridge done. ]
If an implant is the choice - it is decided how long and thick the titanium bolt will be.
If you need a tooth removed where the implant will go - the tooth is extracted.
If you need a bone graft or a sinus lift and the dentist decides these can be done right away - you get these done.
By this time the dentist has already decided if you can get the implant inserted too in this same dental session.
If yes - then he goes ahead and inserts the implant.
Time needed : depend on if the sinus lift/bone grafts are needed or not but about 40 minutes to 70 minutes.

If the implant cannot be inserted due to the bone structure needing time to settle, or a tooth has been extracted and the gum needs time to heal, or the bone graft needs time to set - then you will have to come back several months later to then get the implant inserted.

The actual procedure for inserting a dental implant:
Once a tooth has been removed or is already missing - the gum is cut open, the jawbone is drilled and the drilled hole gets a screw thread engraved into it - same as when making screw threads in metalwork.

The titanium bolt is screwed into place and the gum is stitched up.

[ also see Pete's description of his implantation surgery experience he had in April 2006 ]

In some cases the patient can get a temporary tooth screwed on directly onto the implant, or if not viable he gets a temporary resinal tooth to fill the gap.

Then a healing period of 3/4 months for the upper jawbone or 2/3 months for the lower jawbone is necessary.
Or is decided by the dentist on how long it should be at the time of the actual dental implant insertion.

During this healing period the bolt settles into the jawbone and becomes part of the jawbone itself with enough strength to support the crown and stay put when one then chews upon the future crown.
Presumably one feels a bit of a Terminator after getting the bolt fitted and we have heard of airport metal detectors being set off by dental implants.

During the healing period, the actual bolt may come through the gum or not and this is standard either way.

After the healing period
The gum area surrounding the bolt is slightly enlarged by a small metal cylinder called a healing abutment - placed over and around the top part of the bolt to make space for the crown and this is kept there for a few days to a week.
Time needed about 30 minutes.
and a 4 to 7 days pause follows.
If the bolt has not come through the gum during the healing period, then the gum will be cut open for the cylinder to be inserted.
Casts are now taken for the lab to make the crown.

After 5 to 7 days
The cylinder is removed and crown fitted.

This would mean more than one visit and treatments depending on how many implants were to be done and complex each implant is.

Cost of one implant (one tooth)
One implant is divided into several components and one implant can either be part of a bridge of teeth, or just hold one single tooth.
Here is how each component is calculated price wise:

If we are considering a one tooth single implant:

The actual titanium bolt that goes into the jawbone, plus the topping screw, plus the healing abutment used later - all together cost:
Czech Crowns 20.240

The final abutment, which is the screw with a small head onto which the final crown is fixed costs
Czech Crowns 7.590

The actual metal ceramic crown that goes onto the final abutment costs:
Czech Crowns 7.590

Or, if one prefers to have a full ceramic crown that goes onto the final abutment costs:
Czech Crowns 9.600

So the TOTAL cost of a one tooth implant, with titanium implant bolt, topping screw, healing abutment, final abutment and a metal ceramic crown all inclusive of anaesthesia, implantation surgery etc. costs:
Czech Crowns 35.420

The TOTAL cost of a one tooth implant, with titanium implant bolt, topping screw, healing abutment, final abutment and a full ceramic crown all inclusive of anaesthesia, implantation surgery etc. costs:
Czech Crowns 37.430


If we are considering implants as parts of a bridge the main difference from the above one tooth implant is that there may be say 6 implants onto which a full component bridge of 10 to 12 teeth may be fitted and this is calculated as follows:

In this case 6 implants:
The actual titanium bolts that go into the jawbone, plus the topping screws, plus the healing abutments used later - all together cost:
Czech Crowns 20.240 x 6 = 121.440

The final abutments, which are the screws with a small head onto which the final full component bridge is fixed
Czech Crowns 7.590 x 6 = 45.540

The actual metal ceramic full component bridge of 11 to 12 teeth
Czech Crowns 94.875

This is a typical scenario for someone who has no teeth in the top jaw or who needs the last two remaining teeth extracted and wants a proper permanently fixed row of teeth instead of dentures or other removable prosthetics.

So in laymans terms, to get a whole top or lower jaw of teeth fitted with implants and a full component bridge the overall cost, of 6 implants, abutments, the whole teeth bridge, anaesthetics, surgery etc would cost:
Czech Crowns 261.855


One last small detail here.
If one is having a complete row of teeth made via implants and a bridge, then presumably before, they were wearing a denture.
So as not to go around for months whilst the implants heal with no teeth there are three options.

1, continue wearing the denture as normal after the implants have been inserted.
Cost = 0

2, have the present dentures modified so that they can be screwed onto the implants directly after surgery to serve as a temporary fixed bridge.
Czech Crowns 13.200

3, have new dentures made so that they can be screwed onto the implants directly after surgery to serve as a temporary fixed bridge.
Czech Crowns 19.800


Another implant scenario may be that the patient needs one implant towards the back of the mouth where his present teeth end - say upper missing tooth nr 6 to the left where tooth nr. 5 is also missing and the bridge would hook onto tooth nr. 4 which is there.
So this 3 tooth bridge at one end would be on the implant at position of missing tooth nr 6 and at the other end would be fixed onto tooth nr. 4.
And tooth nr 5 would be part of this 3 tooth bridge between the implant tooth and tooth nr. 4.

The cost for the implant and the topping crown tooth nr 6
The actual titanium bolt that goes into the jawbone, plus the topping screw, plus the healing abutment used later - all together cost:
Czech Crowns 20.240

The final abutment, which is the screw with a small head onto which the final crown is fixed costs
Czech Crowns 7.590

The actual metal ceramic crown that goes onto the final abutment of the implant costs:
Czech Crowns 7.590

The cost of the other end of the bridge on tooth nr. 4 is the same as the cost of a crown as this basically is a crown in itself
Czech Crowns 7.590

And last but not least - the intermittent tooth nr 5 that hangs on the bridge between the implanted tooth crown and tooth nr 4 crown
Czech Crowns 6.000

The total overall cost of a three tooth bridge made up of 1 implant and crown , 1 intermittent tooth crown, both these in place where there were no teeth before, plus third tooth crown based on the tooth nr 4 which was there before, the total cost is:

Czech Crowns 49.010


Types of implants used:
The preferred implant system used by the dentists in Kromeriz is the Brenemark system.
Well, it used to be called Brenemark.
Now owned by a company called Nobel Biocare who have made three separate systems out of the original one.

1) The Brenemark system (the original one) which has been modified a little.

2) Replace Select Tapered

3) Replace Select Straight

These last two implant systems are those that the dentists most prefer to use.

In the UK one implant can cost around £ 2000+ and elsewhere in Europe/USA similar prices are to be expected.
Do ask your dentist.

Implants - the actual titanium bolt, go under serial numbers and both the dentist and the Nobel Biocare company can track each bolt down and hence offer a guarantee.

Attention please:
It is possible to have a tooth extracted (if needed) or/and get a bone graft or a sinus lift (if needed) and then the implant inserted - all in one session.
But this varies from patient to patient - the strength of the bone structure and other factors so please bear in mind that if an implant can be inserted in one session - or that you may need to come back 3 months later to have it inserted after you have had to have one tooth extracted, can only be decided after you have sat in the dentists chair over here and had the initial analysis - and is not decidable long distance.

All patients who have implants get antibiotics 12 hours before the treatment.
These serve to avoid infection and are taken for a few days.
If the swelling arrives later - once again antibiotics are taken as a precaution.

All dental implants are obviously done with local anaesthetic and there is no pain during the treatment.
Having a tooth extracted is worse.
It's just pretty uncomfortable since the actual jawbone - which is part of your head and skull gets drilled into and it seems to be more of a weird sensation than a painful one.

Basically, getting an implant is like being painlessly kicked in the teeth with a steel capped boot and that every person then reacts differently.
Some don't notice and have no side effects, others swell up 2 days later, others have some swelling as late as a week later.


Temporary crown for same day loaded implants.
Meaning that you can get a temporary crown screwed directly onto the freshly implanted implant on the same day.
This is optional but as the technology is now tested and proven worldwide, it actually is a good idea as the temporary crown helps your overall bite not to go out of place.
For example, you can leave the hole in the teeth and get the implant crowned after the healing period of 3 to 5 months but what can happen is that the teeth on the other jaw might start to grow outwards into where the hole is.
Also the gum is better formed with a temporary crown and your gum does not have to be cut open if it has grown back together during the healing period.

Bone grafts Sinus lifts.
This is the insertion of artificial bone into the jaw.
A bone graft or a sinus lift are almost the same thing with the main difference being that a sinus lift is done at the back of the mouth where the upper molars reside as in some cases the bone structure tends to be thinner in this part of the mouth cavity.

Bone Grafts:
Once a tooth is missing or has been removed the dentist decides if one also needs a bone graft.
If yes, the a small sample of the patients blood is taken from his vein (from the arm) and is mixed with a granulated powder like material.
This powder looks like miniature round shaped tic-tacs - much smaller than a pinhead.
This results in a paste which is then inserted into and around the hole drilled into the jawbone for the implant.
This serves to strengthen or even make thicker the bone structure so that when this has set the whole jaw-bone around that area is strong enough to hold and maintain the implant.

Sinus Lifts:
A sinus lift is exactly the same but is done at the back of the mouth if needed and more of the granulated paste is added as this area may need more strengthening.

The whole procedure is really part of inserting the implant and is not more uncomfortable than if one just gets an implant without the bone graft or sinus lift.

From my personal experience up to now about 10% of the patient's we've had over for implants have needed bone grafts, and about 5% a sinus lift.

Saturday and Sunday dental treatment.
Czech dentists love their week-ends like any other civilized human being and they do try their best to plan a dental treatment schedule in such a way that no work needs to be done during the week-end.
However, some patients have a limited amount of time and will prefer to be in the dentist's chair from Monday to Friday and even on the week-end if it means they can depart sooner.

So if the dentist must work on a week-end day due to this there is an extra charge of :
Czech Crowns 3.240

for each week-end day of dental treatment.
