It sounds like you are faced with the prospect of losing all your teeth and replacing them with implants. If that is the case you don't have to place an implant for every tooth. 6-8 implants can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth. Also, implants can be used to stabilize a smaller removable appliance we call an over-denture. There can be many advantages to this one of which is reduced cost with a better more secure feel than a denture.
Dental Implant Cost
Typically implant cost is determined by your geographical locale. Most are in the range of about $1600 - $2500 for th eimplant placement and then after healing (406 months) an abutment and crown are required which can range from $1500-$3000. On average a complete implant from start to finish is roughly $3800. Of course, if bone grafting is required, then it depends on the type of graft and size of graft used.

2. The implant manufacturer
3. The type of prosthesis (straight/angulated abutment; PFM/All ceramic crown)
4. Any additional procedure such as bone grafting that may be required.
Implants at our practice range from Rs. 26,000 to Rs. 45,000 (approximately) based on the above mentioned factors. This cost is still less than what is charged in most other countries.
The low price does not mean you will be sacrificing any quality of care or materials used in your dental procedure. Lower fixed costs, lower labor costs, lower education fees and expenses, and lower insurance costs translate to significant savings for the dental tourist in India.

Costs can Vary Greatly
The cost is determined by how much reconstruction has to be done. For example, if you have been wearing a denture or a partial denture for a number of years, you may need bone grafting to replace the bone that resorbs over time. Also, if you have an abscess, bone destruction occurs due to the infection. The next stage would then be implant placement after the graft has healed. Due to the amount of materials used, these procedures can be costly, but the long term results are worth the expense.
Cost of dental implants
There are two cost components for implant therapy. First the surgical cost which consists of the implants, any necessary bone grafting, and anesthesia choice. Second is the cost of the prosthesis, whether it's in form of a crown, bridge, or overdenture.
You mention that you are not interested in denture, so I am assuming that you have all of your teeth missing. In this case you have option of two or four implants for support of a removable overdenture, or six to eight implants for support of a fixed prosthesis. The surgical cost for the implants itself can range from $1800 to $2800 depending on location, the surgeon, and the complexity of the procedure. Bone grafting and IV sedation would be in addition.
The prosthetic cost is highly variable based on design and its comlexity and whether it is fixed or removable. It is best to consult your restorative dentist or prosthodontist to discuss options and select a treatment option that fits your needs and financial means.
