The number of people in the UK opting for cheap dental implants abroad has increased year on year, but with the risks high, should you be thinking twice about travelling for cosmetic dentistry? 

Dental implants abroad – are they really worth the risk? 

Do you lack confidence in your smile? 

Maybe you have a denture that prohibits what you can eat, or you have multiple missing teeth and feel ashamed and embarrassed about getting them seen too. 

Perhaps the price point is putting you off. 

Dental implants are expensive for a reason, made of materials that are built to last, by professionals who have years and years of experience and industry knowledge. If you’re paying a budget price, you’re much more likely to experience a budget treatment. 

The consequences of going abroad for complex dental surgery is something we see regularly here at EvoDental from patients who have undergone dental implants abroad and subsequently come to us to have their teeth fixed.  

Remove the risk of painful, unnecessary, and complicated dental work and reduce the total bill by coming to us at EvoDental. 

The risks of having full mouth dental implants abroad 

The cost of dental implants in countries like Turkey and Budapest are often much lower than they are here in the UK, that’s just a fact. But, more often than not, they’re also too good to be true. So it’s important that if you are considering opting for a cheaper treatment abroad, you are aware of the risks from the get-go: 

  • The risk of infection is high where cheaper dental implants are used to cut costs. 
  • You run the risk of not getting the results you wanted through miscommunication due to language barriers. 
  • You may be required to return to the same country for all follow ups, making the end price much higher than initially advertised. 
  • You could be subject to painful procedures. 
  • You may have to pay much more overall if fixes are required once you’re back home. 

Why trust us?

Is it safe to have dental implants abroad?
Whilst dental tourism is increasingly popular, the unfortunate truth is that it is not always safe. Of course, there are plenty of dental clinics abroad that offer high quality implants, but more often than not, this increase in quality is reflected in the price.
The most affordable dental implants abroad often use lower quality materials or have a less hands-on aftercare package. In many cases, the dental clinician isn’t as qualified, and you could be unknowingly signing up for a below average treatment.
We always advise those thinking about dental implants abroad talk to our team first. We offer a free consultation, where you can find out there and then if our EvoSolution is a good fit. In any case, if dental tourism is something you’re serious about – we recommend that you do your research and ask all the important questions of your chosen clinic before you receive any treatment.
Is it cheaper to get dental implants abroad?
Perhaps the biggest appeal to those thinking about getting dental implants abroad is the low price point. It’s no secret that dental implants are a costly investment, but there are a number of popular overseas destinations that offer the same treatment for a substantially lower amount.
So, what’s the catch – why are dental implants abroad so much more affordable? Here are just some of the most common factors effecting the bottom line:

  • Cheaper dental implant materials
  • Less likely to have any cover or protection if something were to go wrong
  • Overall operation costs may be lower depending on the country
  • Lower standards of quality and care
  • Less qualified clinicians

In most cases, it can be more risky than it is beneficial to have dental implants abroad, and it is always important to do your research before making your final decision.

What if something goes wrong with my dental implants abroad?
Here in the UK, you are covered in the case of something going wrong and protected by UK law. However, getting dental implants abroad means you are no longer offered the same high levels of protection.
In many cases, patients who come to us after having botched dental implants abroad have ended up paying far more than they would have had they just come to us in the first instance.
Regulations do vary from one country to the next though, so if you’re set on dental tourism, be sure to check out the laws of the country first.
