Unfortunately, even with advances in dental care losing teeth is still far too commonplace. In part this can be explained by our reluctance to give-up sugary food and drinks but it is also a fact that our teeth are having to last longer simply because we are living longer. While dentures are a suitable alternative to missing teeth they are not for everyone. Dental implants are the  ideal replacement as they act, look and feel the same as one of your own teeth and are permanently fixed.

Dental implant procedures cannot usually be carried out in one visit and on each visit you will need to visit the dentist several times. Where better than to be on holiday so that you can take advantage of the scenery and way of life that a destination such as Chiang Mai provides while your dental needs are being attended to?

Why have Dental Implants in Chiang Mai?

Chiang Mai’s serene and calm ambience provides the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern day living and is a great place to convalesce after dental implant procedures.

Patients need not worry about the standards of expertise, training and qualifications of their Chiang Mai dentist. Training is as stringent here as it is for our dentists at home with all dentists requiring membership and registration of professional bodies, including the Thai Dental Council and the Dental Association of Thailand in order to practice.

Of course, prices in Chiang Mai are considerably less expensive than you will find at home but that is because the cost of living is not as much in Chiang Mai, not because there is any skimping on your treatment.

Good hygiene standards, modern equipment and high-tech clinics provide the optimum settings for your dental care as no expense is spared to ensure patients receive the very best.

Booking your appointment through Dental Departures will also guarantee you the lowest price for your treatment so not only will you receive the best treatment but also the best value for your dental implant procedure.

How long do Dental Implants take in Chiang Mai?

A number of different types of implant are available which will affect how long the procedure will take overall. Also, for dental implants to be successful it depends on the quality of your bone where the implant is to be inserted. A bone graft may be required if there is significant bone loss. Your dentist will be able to assess this from your x-rays.

For conventional dental implants the procedure takes 3-6 months to complete, although it may be up to 12 months. You will usually require two visits.

The implant is inserted on your first visit. The procedure is done in a day but you will need to be available for a few days just so your dentist can ensure everything is fine with the implant before you return home. You will then have to wait for a number of months to allow the healing process to take place and for the implant to fuse with your bone (osseointegration). You will be given a temporary healing denture to wear until your return for the crown (false tooth) to be fitted to the implant.

On your next visit to see your dentist impressions will be made of your teeth and sent to the lab for the crown. After your dentist has received the crown back (after a few days) you will return to have it fitted and the procedure is then complete. You may have to be around for a week to 10 days on this trip.

What is the cost of dental implants in Chiang Mai compared to Australia and New Zealand?
