Why Should I Consider Pattaya for Dental Care?

Pattaya is a popular beach resort in Thailand visited by millions each year. Cultural attractions, plentiful accommodation and a boisterous nightlife scene have all been attracting visitors for decades—but now people have another reason to visit Pattaya: dental tourism.

With sizeable investment from the local tourism authority, Pattaya is shedding its sleazier image, with families, friends and couples able to enjoy activities like fishing expeditions, scuba diving, island day-trips, go-kart racing, waterparks and many more activities and events that don't involve sitting in a bar all night.

Roam around the theme and amusement parks, botanical gardens or museums; try snorkeling in the sea or visit a couple of superb temples and Buddhist monuments a few kilometers away.

When seeking accommodation, visitors can choose a simple guesthouse or a luxury hotel, depending on your budget and preferences. Your money will go much further here, with many international five-star hotels costing below AUS $200 (AUD) a night. Budget hotels and guesthouses are plentiful.

Aside from the ambiance, attractions and accommodation, various clinics in Pattaya offer affordable, top-quality dental restorations.

What Should I Know About the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?

This specialist treatment is an option for patients who want to replace a whole row of teeth; this can be done on the upper or lower jaw or, for a full smile makeover, both.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into the jawbone, consisting of an implant, abutment and a crown. The implant is usually made of titanium which serves as the artificial tooth root. The abutment connects the implant and the replacement tooth (crown).

First pioneered by Dr. Paulo Malo in 1998, the All-on-4® treatment concept involves four implants (hence the name) being inserted into each jaw bone at specific angles. These are then able to hold a full arch of permanent teeth securely in place, eventually restoring the function of the teeth to 90%

Why Visit Pattaya for the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?

Traveling to Pattaya allows you to obtain affordable and high-quality dental treatment and at the same time spend a wonderful vacation with your family or friends.

Clinics in Pattaya cater to dental tourists and can assist patients with their treatment and travel-related needs. The facilities are modern and clinics comply with international standards. Many of the implant specialists complete their training abroad and are affiliated with organizations like the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Your chosen dentist will provide a clear explanation about the treatment; they will also discuss the options and perform a complete examination before the procedure gets the go-ahead. A personalised treatment plan is created for you based on your needs, goals and preferences.

Of course, the main reason to travel abroad for dental care is the price, which is substantially lower in Pattaya, and across the rest of Thailand, compared to what dentists charge in the UK, Australia and the US. 

How Much Can I Save on the All-on-4® Treatment Concept in Pattaya Compared to Australia or New Zealand?

The cost of the All-on-4® treatment concept depends on a number of factors, including the type of material used and any additional treatment (if needed).

Prices for this treatment in Pattaya are around AUS $17,000 (UK £8,800; EURO €11,400; US $12,600; CAN $16,800). Compare this figure to a whopping AUS $35,000 in Australia (UK £18,200; EURO €23,600; US $26,000; CAN $34,600) and it's easy to realise just why Thailand's dental tourism industry is booming.
