Dental implants abroad- should I consider this?

Dental Implants Abroad

We have noticed that a lot more people are opting to have their dental implants done abroad. People are choosing to have dental procedures done abroad because it can work out cheaper, but this is really not advisable. You should never consider getting any type of dental treatment abroad. Be extremely wary of what seems to be a great deal or bargain in these situations. Your treatment will more than likely require several appointments, which will be costly if you have to pay for flights each time. In addition, if anything goes wrong, you are extremely far away from the person you will need to see about it.

Dental Implants Abroad Are Risky

We are one of the leading practices for dental implants in Manchester, so we do a lot of dental implant procedures here at Church Road Dental and Cosmetics. They are, without doubt the best method for replacing missing or badly damaged teeth and offer a much better alternative to the more conventional methods of dentures, crowns and bridges.

The best place to get your dental work done is at home, especially implants. Here we look at some of the commonly asked questions to give you more information about the dental implant procedure. You will see that it is a very complex procedure that involves a number of visits to the practice, and help you to see why dental implants should never be done abroad.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
1) Are implants safe and how long will they last? Dental implants have been proven as a safe, well-established, tried and tested treatment. Provided implants are are well cared for and the bone remains healthy, you can expect them to last many years, although there is no lifetime guarantee.

This shows the post, abutment and crown.

2) Are dental implants suitable for everyone? No, not everyone will be able to have implants as it depends on the condition and amount of bone in the patient’s jaw. CT scans and X-rays help a dentist to decide whether to go ahead with a dental implant.

3) What is the cost of a dental implant? The cost of an implant at our Manchester dental practice is £1,300, but a crown will also need to be fitted with it which takes the cost of a single implant to £2,300. We use titanium implants, as this is the best dental implant material. More about our fees and finance options can be found at https://www.cheadlehulmedental.com/fees/

4) How long does the treatment take? The dental implant procedure usually takes the form of 3 different stages. The first is the placing of the implant and waiting for the bone to fuse with the implant. The second is the fitting of the abutment which secures the dental crown to the implant post and the third is the final fitting of the dental crown. The time scale varies from one person to another, and can take anywhere between 6 to 9 months, or longer. If bone grafting is required, then you can probably add on another 3 to 9 months to this duration.

5) What are all on four dental implants? All-on-4 is a dental implant technique used to provide patients with fixed (non-removable), highly aesthetic and functional teeth within 24 hours, in most cases. It consists of placing 4 implants in the upper or lower jaw and a fixed bridge that will be supported by those 4 implants: (All the teeth in one jaw on 4 implants). More information about all-on-4 dental implants can be found at https://www.cheadlehulmedental.com/treatment/all-on-4-implants.html

This is an example of an all on 4 implant case.
