The cost summary for the procedure is given below.
Cost of Full Mouth Dental Implants in India - The Factors
Certain factors including the process, product quality, product quantity and the required time frame determine the final cost of any dental treatment. In the case of full mouth dental implant in India, below are those contributing factors.
1. PREREQUISITE PROCEDURES
Check whether you need multiple tooth extractions, bone graft or sinus lift
Extractions: Many patients require the extraction of their existing damaged permanent teeth which adds up to the cost of dental implant in India. Typically, the extractions cost somewhere between $50-$100 which make a very slight addition to the overall dental implant package.
Bone Grafting: The implants are firm and lasting when you have a good jaw bone. However, with specific body conditions and aging, certain bone loss is obvious. With the use of dentures also, jaw bones become thin and weak requiring bone grafting.
An average bone grafting costs in USA is approximately $1,500 for full mouth implants. Fortunately, with the use of basal implants and pterygoid implants in Permanent teeth in 3 days(TM), there is no need of bone graft or sinus lift or extensive procedures like block grafting. Basal implants bring down the cost and reduce time factor significantly.
IV Sedation: Basal implants are flapless and self-tapping. This reduces surgical time drastically. Sedation by administering pills is quite adequate.
Extra Procedures: Below mentioned is the summary of extra cost incurred during full mouth dental implant in India and US.
2. Number of implants
Assess the number of implants required for your full mouth restoration
Full mouth dental implant requires placement of a number of implants in each jaw which varies on technique and limitations of the bone structure and limitations of the surgeon.
Finally, the number of implants determines your cost of full mouth dental implant in India.
Another factor is the thickness of your jaw bone. The doctor needs to estimate the number of implants required that will support the entire set of teeth in your mouth. If budget is a concern for you, your dentist would definitely figure out the minimum number of implants for healthy placement of this set of teeth in your mouth.
Ideally, our mouth has to have 28 teeth; 14 in each jaw. Placing pterygoid implants in the upper jaw allows extremely good support to the back molars, without the need for sinus lift. Similarly basal implants in the lower jaw gives good support to back molars, without the need for bone grafting. 2nd molars are usually not replaced in many techniques where implants used are less, or because of surgeons limitations. Not replacing molars leads to more strain on the TMJ, as patient is forced to chew with front teeth.
The more the number of implants per arch:
- The more stable would be the prosthesis or the bridges
- The more the success rate
- Allows full set of teeth 14 teeth in each arch
- Decrease in cantilever on back teeth
- Decrease in length of intra implant span allowing superior biocompatible materials like full zirconia bridge
- The cost of full mouth dental implants in India goes up as you increase the number of implants per arch
The cost of one titanium implant placement in India varies between $350 to $800. Other detailed cost estimation is mentioned below.
3. Dental implant technique
The technique used - dentures, fixed bridges, all on 4, or permanent teeth in 3 days(TM)

Different Full Mouth Dental Implant Techniques
Now, let's learn about the various full mouth dental implant techniques prevalent today.
Full Mouth Dental Implants technique with OVERDENTURES
It is one of the most cost-effective way of getting full mouth dental implants in India. It involves placement of 4 implants in each jaw over which a special denture is snapped on. They are easy to maintain and clean as the dentures can be easily removed. However in the long run the plastic/acrylic denture gets worn out and needs to be replaced.
With overdentures, you can eat and munch on anything without complication.
Your dentist in India might refer the Overdentures with below names:
- Implant Dentures
- Snap-On Dentures
- Implant Supported Dentures
- Dentures Secured with Implants
Full Mouth Dental Implants technique with FIXED BRIDGES (all on 8/ all on 6)
Unlike the above-mentioned overdentures these bridges are fixed to the implants. They are fixed with screws. The bridges have vents or holes through which the dentist can remove the screw and the bridge for any repairs or when the connecting screw become loose.
The bridge might be made of acrylic, porcelain fused to metal or zirconia cemented to metal sleeves. A metal free zirconia bridge is not possible, as the connecting screw has to be torqued to prevent loosening. Heavy torqueing of screw is not possible in zirconia bridge without metal sleeves.
Your dentist might refer it as,
- Hybrid denture supported by implants
- Fixed teeth supported by dental implants
You need to visit your dentist for regular cleaning of the dentures who can remove it, if required and place it again after cleaning.
Fixed bridges require 6 to 12 titanium implant placement in each arch (upper arch and the lower arch) for a full mouth dental implant in India.
Full Mouth Dental Implants technique with ALL ON 4
All on 4 is a procedure which allows you to have your full set of fixed dentures placed on four implants per arch. This is somewhat similar to the fixed bridges.
There is are two things you need to know about this technique.
- Location of Implant: All on 4 uses implants in the front only, whereas in standard fixed bridge technique implants are placed further back supporting more teeth and decreasing the cantilever. Some skilled dental implantogist in India can place pterygoid implant, giving perfect functional 14 teeth without cantilever, using atleast 8 implants for a porcelain fused metal framework bridge.
- Immediate Loading: Acrylic denture is anchored to the implants in all on 4 whereas in fixed bridge acrylic removable denture is given. They are then replaced after 3 months with a fixed prosthesis.
Full Mouth Dental Implants technique with Permanent Teeth in 3 days (TM)
Permanent Teeth in 3 daysTM procedure by Dr. Motiwala delivers a set of 14 teeth zirconia bridge on 10 to 12 implants per arch. The 14 teeth which include the functionally important 2 molars on either side give a perfect chewing function. Back molars are possible because of pterygoid implants which give strong anchorage, preventing any unstable cantilevers.
There is no need of sinus lift and bone graft as Swiss basal implants (Roott and Ihde dental) are used.
The 100% zirconia bridge has no metal framework or copings inside. It is rock solid in the posterior teeth to prevent any chipping. In the anterior teeth it has fine esthetic ceramic for translucent effect of natural enamel. The zirconia bridge is made at the high tech in house lab with high precision CAD CAM.
The procedure involves extraction of teeth if any and immediate placement of implant on day 1. The zirconia bridge is designed after few trials based on our expertise and the patient's choice and desire. In 3 to 5 days depending on the complexity of smile designing the zirconia bridge is fixed.
The technique Permanent Teeth in 3 daysTM is a single visit technique or 1 visit procedure involving requiring the patient to be attending the clinic for 3 to 5 days.
