Visiting Chiang Mai as a Dental Tourist

The “Rose of the North” is considered the most culturally-rich place in Thailand, with more than 500 temples, as well as a range of fun activities both in the city and around the surrounding countryside. 

As one of the leading tourist destinations in Thailand, the city provides different choices of accommodation ranging from guesthouses to mid-range hotels to luxury resorts. It hosts a number of festivals like the three-day Flower Festival in February and Thai New Year “Songkran” in mid-April.

Visit the Chiang Mai City Arts and Cultural Center, Chiang Mai National Museum or Tribal Museum. Experience Thai culture; see the handicraft villages or check out the folk dance dinner; shop at the day and night market or get a relaxing Thai massage. You’ll never run out of things to do while recuperating from your treatment.

Why Should I Consider Treatment in Chiang Mai?

Aside from various activities mentioned earlier, Chiang Mai is home to a number of reputable dental clinics providing affordable, high-quality dental care. 

Dentists in Chiang Mai require membership and registration to professional organizations like the Dental Association of Thailand and the Thai Dental Council. The dentists comply with industry standards and undergo extensive training.

You’ll find many implant specialists are also members of esteemed professional organizations, like the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

What Is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a dental implant procedure that replaces all of a patient's upper or lower teeth with four dental implants embedded into the jaw bone.

It’s a great option for edentulous (toothless) persons or patients with decayed or badly damaged teeth caused by gum disease or injury who want a more stable and comfortable solution than dentures. 

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in the jawbone, usually made from titanium. An abutment connects this to the replacement tooth.

The All-on-4® treatment concept uses four implants onto which a fixed bridge is attached; this holds a full arch of porcelain or composite ceramic crowns cemented to its framework.

What Are the Advantages of the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?

This innovative technique provides many advantages for patients who want to restore their smile. For instance:

  • It reduces treatment time compared to other methods
  • Improves quality of life
  • Can save patients money in the long run compared to undergoing multiple other treatments.
  • Often eliminates the need for bone grafting (due to the unique length and placement of the implants), which is a time-consuming procedure.
  • Only requires one session of surgery, after which patients have their new immediate denture loaded onto the implants.
