What Is Dental Tourism?
Essentially, dental tourism is a phrase that refers to anybody who travels overseas with the intention of undergoing dental treatment. Often, prospective patients fly for the sole reason of receiving more affordable care, while others may choose to combine their treatment with a bit of a holiday at the same time.
Thousands of Aussies have already taken advantage of the superior dental treatment that dentists in Thailand and Bali can offer, and all for a fraction of the prices being charged by domestic dentists.

What Exactly Does the Procedure Entail?
The All-on-4® treatment concept uses a set of four dental implants, either upper or lower jaw, onto which a complete set of teeth are affixed. Each implant is inserted directly into the jawbone, at an angle, and a full bridge is then attached onto the implants.
The treatment usually requires two visits to complete. During the first visit, your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your mouth and jaw, which will generally involve a series of 3D scans and/or x-rays. You will also have impressions taken so that your new set of teeth can be fabricated.
The second visit will involve a series of small incisions being made into your gum to allow four implants to be inserted directly into the jawbone (two at the front, and two near the back). There will generally be a wait of between six to 12 months before your next visit to allow the implants to fuse securely with your jawbone through a process known as osseointegration.
Once the implants are securely fused, your dentist can then attach a permanent bridge during your third visit.
