Unfortunately, even with advances in dental care, losing teeth is still far too commonplace. Although this is due in part to our reluctance to give-up sugary food and drinks, it is also a fact that our teeth must 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 usually a few days recovery time is required, particularly if extractions are needed. Where better to visit to recuperate in the relaxed setting Chiang Mai provides while your dental needs are being attended to?
Chiang Mai’s serene and calm ambiance 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 your 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.
Your cost of treatment in Chiang Mai is considerably less expensive than you will find at home because the cost of living is lower 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 by our top clinics to ensure international 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.
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 three to six months to complete; thus two visits are usually required.
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 so your dentist can ensure everything is fine with the implant before you return home. You will then wait a few months to allow the healing process to take place and for the implant to fuse with your bone (a process called osseointegration). You will be given a temporary healing denture to wear until your return for the crown (replacement 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 manufacture of the crown. After your dentist has received the crown back, you will return to have it fitted and the procedure is then complete.
Because different types of dental implants are made from different materials, costs vary. As a general guide, in Australia, a dental implant may cost around AUD $3,700 compared to AUD $1,460 in Chiang Mai.
Saving thousands of dollars even on the cost of one implant by traveling to Chiang Mai opens up attractive options for traveling dental patients. Let us help you find out how much you can save.
