The cost of dental implants abroad will depend on the type of dental implant treatment you opt for and the location of the clinic you choose to attend.
Many factors can influence this price and in order to receive the best quality treatment, we would always recommend thoroughly researching all dentists and clinics. Only then can you be sure you are getting the very best value for money without sacrificing your health and safety.
Why can prices for a dental implant abroad differ so much from UK prices?
There are differences between the costs of same-day dental implants abroad and in the UK, which can be very appealing at first glance.
However, when looking for a treatment provider, especially if they are abroad, it is essential to ask plenty of questions. This will allow you to compare the pros and cons of dental implants abroad prices against the equivalent procedure in the UK.
Consultations and treatment should cover:
- The materials used in dental implants.
Your chosen clinic should only use biocompatible materials that are stringently regulated.
This ensures that they will allow for osseointegration, where the implant creates a strong bond with the jaw, whilst also being completely safe for use in the human body.
- Aftercare and check-up appointments.
Ensure your package includes a thorough aftercare examination before you leave, and that all you will need to care for your mouth during healing is included, for example, cleaning tools and antibiotics.
You should also make sure you have procedure notes and dental implant information, including serial numbers and information on the implant system used before you leave. This will ensure UK dentists have all the information they need to help you, should you need it upon your return.
- The qualification level of the dentist.
A suitably qualified dentist should have no qualms about showing you proof of their qualifications. You can also look online to read reviews or check for registration with professional dental organisations or regulations before you book.
This will help you feel confident that dentists are suitably qualified to perform complex dental surgery.
- Whether their smile-in-a-day treatments will deliver a bespoke set of fixed teeth on surgery day – as the EvoSolution™
It is certainly possible to find all-on-4 dental implants abroad that offer a prosthesis on surgery day, so nobody should face the possibility of returning home with no teeth or prosthetics.
Any treatment should be fully concluded abroad before you return home, either on surgery day or on the following days, otherwise, you may have to find a clinic in the UK to complete your treatment – incurring extra costs.
