Practicing good dental care is essential to your general health and well-being, but many people across the world are skipping regular dental check-ups because of the cost. This is a particular problem in Australia and New Zealand, where dental treatment prices are some of the highest in the world. By looking outside of your national borders for dental care, you do not have to let your teeth and gums suffer anymore.

Few other nations in the region can match Thailand’s number of modern dental clinics staffed by bilingual dentists. The combination of high-quality care, internationally-recognised dental equipment and materials, along with affordable, prices attracts an increasing number of Australians and New Zealanders who want to affordably look after their oral health.

What Makes Thailand a Top Dental Tourism Choice?

For every type of dental work, Thailand prices are cheaper than Australia, New Zealand, and many other industrialised nations. This is a primary motivating factor for many people who decide to have dental treatment in Thailand, but just as important is the high standard of dental work available. Thai dentists and highly-trained and respected; many have studied and received their degrees overseas at universities in Sydney, London, and New York, where they also learn to speak English.

Then we have the dental clinics themselves, the best of which are accredited by the Joint Commission International and ISO9001 certified. Sterilisation protocols and standards of hygiene match those of dental clinics in Australia and New Zealand. In addition, dental clinic support staff pay particular attention to making sure that you, as a visiting dental tourist away from home, are taken good care of.

Direct flights to Thailand leave international airports in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and Auckland daily, and with low-cost carriers serving these routes you can often get a bargain ticket. Once in Thailand, the spending power of the Australian and New Zealand dollar goes a long way. You do not need a huge budget to cover accommodation, food, and transport, particularly when you eat local cuisine and book a room at an affordable homestay.

Thinking About Having Dental Implants in Thailand?

Of all the different dental treatments that overseas patients travel to Thailand for, dental implants offer some of the biggest savings. If you are considering having this type of complete tooth replacement then you should be aware of what makes you a suitable candidate for dental implant surgery .

First of all, if you smoke tobacco you must abstain prior to any dental implant treatment. Smoking hinders the healing process, and dentists are generally not keen to treat any patient who persists with something that could get in the way of successful treatment.

Also, if you suffer from periodontitis (gum disease) you will not be able to start dental implant treatment before it is eradicated. Due to your gums having to be cut open during implant surgery, it is essential that they are completely healthy before this happens. Your gums can then have the best chance of healing without any complications.

Another issue that could delay your dental implant treatment starting straightaway is if you have an inadequate amount of bone in your jaw to place the implants within. If this is the case, your dentist will present you with the option of having a bone graft for dental implants . Once your jawbone has been successfully regenerated, your implant procedure can move forward to completion.

Understand How Dental Implants Work Before Travelling to Thailand

Here is a brief breakdown of how these ingenious teeth replacements work. The first stage of the process involves making an incision into your gum, then drilling a little hole into your jawbone. The implant is then placed inside of that hole and your gum is stitched back up. What happens next is a process called “ osseointegration ,” where the implant is allowed to fuse with your jawbone. When the implant is stable within your jawbone, an abutment and ceramic crown can be affixed to it.

It is understandable that you could be a little anxious about having this type of dental work carried out in a different country, but there is no need to be. What can help to put your mind at rest is to hear about the experiences of other people who have been there and done it. Plenty of Australians and New Zealanders have written dental implant reviews in Thailand after their treatment, which you can read right here at Dental Departures.
