Many thousands of happy patients have discovered that traveling further afield to locations such as Bangkok ensures they get high-quality dental care with savings of around 60% on their dental implants. Bangkok is not only a world-renowned center for dental tourism but is also one of the most exciting modern cities in the world, offering dental implant patients a host of sights, activities and conveniences to enjoy outside their visits to the dental clinic.
It usually takes a number of appointments over a couple of visits to complete the dental implant procedure. It is important, therefore, that you are comfortable in your surroundings and that your everyday needs and comforts are easily met. As one of South-East Asia’s most important cities, Bangkok is a heady mix of modern and traditional. New skyscrapers stand alongside Bangkok’s canals and the Chao Phraya River where a glimpse of Bangkok’s past when travel and business was conducted on this network of waterways can still be seen in the floating markets.
Bangkok is a premier destination for dental tourists – its infrastructure, world-class facilities and state-of-the-art clinics consistently delivering quality dentistry.
Widespread air-travel and cross-border training has led to dentists throughout Thailand pursuing qualifications at prestigious universities abroad as well as membership of international societies such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Dental implant patients can be assured their Bangkok dentist’s training and qualifications are certainly on a par with dentists at home.
Moreover, as clinics aim to deliver ever-higher standards across every aspect of their services, including hygiene and safety standards, more are gaining accreditation with international organizations. A number of our Bangkok clinics are accredited with, for example, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the Joint Commission International (JCI).
Most dental implant patients need a series of appointments over two visits to complete their treatment. Each visit is a number of months apart – between 3 and 12 months. If, before the treatment commences, you need a sinus life or bone graft your treatment may take even longer to complete.
On your first visit the dental implant will be inserted. Your dentist will open up your gum and the implant will be inserted into your jaw bone. The gum will be stitched over and you will then have to wait for a period of months for the area to heal and for the implant to fuse with the bone (osseo-integration). You will probably need to be in Bangkok for a few days at this visit.
On your second visit the crown (false tooth) will be fitted. If your dentist is satisfied that the implant has taken well impressions of your teeth will be made so that the crown can be custom-made to fit perfectly. The impressions are sent to the lab to make the crown. In the meantime you can enjoy the sights of Bangkok until your crown is ready, usually a few days later. You will then return to your dentist who will fit the crown to the implant and your procedure is complete. You may need to be in Bangkok for up to 10 days on your second visit as your dentist will want to check everything is as it should be before you return home.
The cost will ultimately depend on what material is used but as a ball-park figure dental implants in Australia are around AUD $3,800 but start from only $1,625 in Bangkok.
For anyone seriously thinking about dental implants traveling to Bangkok could save you thousands of dollars, which will more than pay for a couple of trips here for a great holiday.
