Considering a money-saving trip to Indonesia to receive dentures in Denpasar? Clinics in this hugely popular tourist destination offer dentures at much lower prices than in Australia or New Zealand, which is just one of the reasons as to why dental tourism is now flourishing across the island.
If you need to replace your missing teeth, you can restore them with top quality dentures - and combine your dental treatment with a memorable holiday to this stunning part of the world.
Denpasar is the biggest city and capital of Bali, Indonesia. As if we had to tell you, the island is famous for its white, sandy beaches, spectacular temples and lineup of exciting watersports, especially surfing off the southern coast. Elsewhere, countryside and learn about the country's unique culture; check out various handicrafts, artworks, pottery, textiles and other items from the local shops; or just take some much-needed time out to relax - all while having your smile upgraded on what promises to be a memorable trip.
Dentures are customized replacements for missing teeth. Dentures today are natural-looking and designed to fit well. While wearing them, you can comfortably talk, smile and eat.
There are two kinds of dentures: complete and partial. Complete are used when all of your teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when there are existing natural teeth.
Other terminology you are likely to come across: immediate (or healing) dentures (as opposed to conventional dentures). As the name implies, immediate dentures are placed immediately after tooth extraction; they are lighter than conventional dentures, thus allowing the tissue in the mouth to heal. As a temporary option, they are usually worn for around two to three months, although some wearers have worn them for years.
Once the dentist determines which type of denture is best for you, the necessary preparations will be made. Usually, the dentist starts the process by making impressions of your teeth and taking measurement of your jaws, followed by creating models and wax forms. These will be forwarded to the laboratory for processing. On your next visit, the dentist will check and fit the denture.
Continue to practice good oral hygiene by cleaning your teeth including your dentures. Gently brush and clean the dentures. Don’t forget to visit the dentist for regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning.
It takes a little practice to get used to your new dentures. Start by eating soft foods cut into smaller-than-usual pieces. Be careful when eating hot or hard foods. Your dentist will give you further instructions on how to take care of your dentures.
The price of dentures depends on the number of teeth involved, the type of material you choose and other factors. For a ballpark figure, dentures in Denpasar cost approximately USD $656.00 (CAD $862.00; AUD $857.00; NZD $904.00; UK £514.00; Eur €588.00).
