By travelling abroad for dental implants there are considerable cost savings to be had though care should be taken when choosing your clinic, price is not the only consideration.

Dental Implants AbroadThere is no doubt that travelling abroad for dental implants can save you a small fortune. Whilst dental implants certainly are the 21st century solution to missing teeth, there is now no need to pay 21st century prices.

For example, our client Emily Mayer, an artist from Norfolk needed 17 tooth implants and crowns. Before embarking on such drastic dental surgery she carefully researched all her options and found herself looking at Budapest dentists because of their long track record of dealing with clients from abroad. Eventually she chose Smile Savers Hungary where she saved an amazing £40,000 on her smile makeover. “Going to Budapest changed my life, I couldn’t face dentures and by doing my dental implant treatment in Hungary I could afford to have my smile back.”

Before embarking on a dental trip abroad you should always check thoroughly a dentist’s qualifications and experience.

Before embarking on a dental trip abroad you should always check thoroughly a dentist’s qualifications. If they are from Hungary then you can rest assured their qualifications are up to scratch – the GDC, the UK’s governing dental body automatically accepted Hungary’s dental qualifications when they entered the EU. The same cannot necessarily be said for those outside the EU.

For dental implants you should choose not just a dentist but one who is a maxillo-facial surgeon (that’s an extra 3 years surgical training to you and me). Look also for additional qualifications such as the revered Master of Implantology award.

After that there are the all important years of experience placing dental implants, dental implant success rate and UK client case studies so you can see what to expect the end result to look like.

Lastly you should think about after care. If you have selected your dental implant specialist abroad with care, then a quick check up in the first 6 months may be all that is required. Travelling back to your chosen country for a quick check up though may not be an attractive option, (think 9 hour flight to India!), so the final thing to check will be do they have facilities for check-ups in the UK.

When considering missing teeth replacement it can feel like your options are limited and dentures are inevitable, but dental implants offer you the chance to smile naturally again.
