Save over 70% on the cost of new dentures in Phuket with Dental Departures. The savings are more than enough to justify the trip—and wouldn’t you rather be enjoying yourself on holiday than paying a dentist at home a huge amount of your hard-earned cash?
A well-established tourist destination, Phuket is the largest of Thailand's islands and boasts some of its most dazzling natural scenery. The dramatic limestone cliffs of the tiny islands around Phang Nga Bay and the national parks showcase the island's best waterfalls, jungles and beaches. Phuket remains a popular destination, and to thousands of Australian, New Zealand, US and UK tourists it has become the place to receive inexpensive expert dental treatment.
Dentists in Phuket are highly qualified, and dental treatment is considered to be of a high standard. The best clinics in Phuket are modern, well-staffed and fully equipped with the latest technology. If you are considering having dentures fitted, you will receive caring and skilled specialist treatment, all in a stunning destination and for a cost-effective price that would be hard to beat at home.
Prices are less expensive in Phuket because the cost of living is lower, which means overheads such as premises rentals, rates, utilities, staffing and material costs are all less. This translates into huge savings for you.

If you are having tooth extractions, Phuket is a particularly lovely place to recuperate in whilst you are waiting for your gums to settle. You will discover plenty to see and do to suit all tastes and budgets. The island offers a great nightlife, but also quieter places if you prefer low-key. There are plenty of activities to take part in, including rock climbing or sea kayaking around Phang Nga Bay. Or, you can simply relax on pristine beaches and enjoy the sunshine.
Dentures are made in a matter of days. However, your mouth will need time to heal if you have had extractions. Typically, a stay of about two weeks is enough time to have full dentures crafted and all necessary adjustments made prior to your departure, although it may be less for partial rather than full dentures and if no extractions are required.
Having dentures fitted after extractions: After tooth extraction, ''healing dentures" are fitted, which are lighter, non-permanent dentures that are worn to allow the gums to heal. Temporary dentures can be worn long-term. Some patients do so for several years, as permanent dentures should only be placed once the gums are fully healed. Dentures need to be adjusted from time to time as gums do recede, but this can be carried out by any dentist.
Dentures with Porcelain Teeth vs Dentures with Acrylic Teeth: Acrylic dentures don't last as long, nor do they have the same natural appearance as porcelain dentures. However, porcelain dentures can wear down the gums and bone much quicker than acrylics because of their weight. Some patients have also found that acrylic dentures are much more comfortable because of their lightness.
The costs of dentures in Australia and New Zealand depends upon what material is used and how many teeth are on the denture. The table below shows you the savings that you can make in Phuket on dentures:
