Discover affordable, high-quality dental implants in Hanoi with Dental Departures. Vietnam’s beautiful capital city remained largely intact after the Vietnam War and has an attractive European ambiance and Parisian charm that invites further exploration.
It is less densely populated than many Asian cities, and while the serenity of synchronized t'ai chi takes place in wide green spaces, the pandemonium that is the usual stuff of Southeast Asian city life is never far away. Behind the ancient walls of the old quarter, all activities are played out on the sidewalks – from gossiping to bike-parking. It is an exhilarating combination that draws visitors back time and time again.
Amidst the sleek city skyscrapers, sweeping boulevards and ancient Chinese pagodas you'll find good clinics offering superb quality dental implants at a price you can afford.
Considered to be the Rolls-Royce of teeth replacement, they act feel and look exactly like your own teeth – no one will ever know.
The exact dental implant procedure from start to finish is not quick. You will probably have to travel to Hanoi twice to complete each stage of the procedure. Some people, who do not have viable jawbones, may need three visits, which will also include a bone graft or sinus lift procedure. This is something you should certainly consider if you are looking at having dental implants in Hanoi as several airfares there and back might not make it much cheaper than staying at home. However, if you’re planning a holiday already then it is worth considering.
With regard to the quality of the dental can you receive in Hanoi, providing you choose a trustworthy dentist, you are more than likely to receive comparable, if not better, care here than you would at home
Dental tourism throughout Vietnam is growing, and many dentists who are used to treating foreign visitors ensure their skills and qualifications are recognizable, up-to-date and on a par with any western dentist .
For our part, Dental Departures makes it our business to background check all our dentists. We look at criminal and legal records, as well as verifying dentist qualifications and professional memberships, for example from the International Congress of oral implantologists, or even the American Dental Association. With real patient reviews and clinic visits, we gain an overall indication, from several sources, as to the reliability of our dentists.
If you choose the right dentist you will be overjoyed with the results – as well as being able to enjoy a great holiday into the bargain!
The majority of people later make two trips to Hanoi for the dental implants.
The first trip will involve the insertion of the dental implant itself into the jaw. This is done by your dentist opening up the gum and drilling a small hole in the jaw. The implant is then inserted and the gum stitched over. The implant will not be visible.
This will be done on the first day and your dentist may want to see you again before you return home. You will then need to wait for between 3 and 12 months for the healing process to take place, when during this time your jaw bone will fuse with the implant in a process called Osseointegration. This provides a strong platform for your false tooth to be attached.
When you return for your next visit the abutment, the part which joins the false tooth to the implant, will be inserted. Your dentist will open up the gumline to expose the implant, insert the abutment and attach the false tooth (crown). It shouldn't take very long and you will be given a local anesthetic for this procedure.
Once the anesthetic wears off you shouldn't be in any more discomfort than if you'd had a filling. In fact, your dental implant should feel completely normal and it won't take too long to get used to it. You will probably need to visit your dentist another once or twice before you return home so they can ensure that everything is secure and is working as it should be.
