Dental implants are a practical and common solution for replacing missing tooth roots. Implanted in the jawbone, they allow a crown, bridge or dental prostheses to be fitted.
In the US or UK, the price of an implant varies between 1500 and 2500 euros for a single tooth. Many people therefore head to dental clinics abroad to carry out this implant installation at a low cost price.
Why get a dental implant?
There are multiple causes of dental implantation treatment.
First of all, tooth loss impacts the aesthetic appearance of the smile, which can create complexes for the patient. The placement of the implant allows the installation of removable or fixed dental prostheses in order to replace the missing tooth(s). In addition, the absence of teeth impairs chewing, which can lead to numerous digestive disorders in patients as well as malabsorption of nutrients.
The absence of certain teeth also has an impact on the patient’s speech and can create joint and muscular problems. Finally, the loss of a tooth has an impact on the entire mouth and can lead to loosening and the loss of other teeth. The objectives of installing a dental implant are therefore multiple and make it possible to improve the patient’s quality of life.
The placement of implants can be done at the same time as the extraction of the teeth, but depending on the situation of each patient, it is sometimes advisable to wait up to two months after the extraction so that the bone can heal. . An x-ray is taken by the dental surgeon to check the bone structure. The installation is carried out under local anesthesia.
The gum is incised in order to perforate the bone which will accommodate the implant. Once the latter is placed, the gum is sutured. In total, this dental work lasts between 30 and 90 minutes.
Why do patients have their dental implants abroad?
In the UK, a zircon crown on a dental implant prices, on average, at 2.300 euros. Added to this are the costs relating to medications and post-operative follow-up. Therefore, many patients choose to have their dental care done abroad in order to have their implant placed at a lower cost.
Especially since Social Security does not cover this intervention. Only the crown is subject to reimbursement by Social Security, up to 84 euros.
Some countries specialize in dental surgery. The clinics are equipped with the latest generation equipment and have doctors specializing in dental treatment.
This dental tourism therefore allows foreign patients wishing to carry out their dental care to go to a country where the care is less expensive and carried out by specialists.
This is the case, for example, of Hungary, Spain or better yet, Turkey. In Turkey most clinics have very experienced dentists with sometimes more than 20 years of experience.
Why do most international patients travel to Turkey?
Many patients head to Turkey to have their implant placed. Indeed, the country has been able to specialize in aesthetic high quality operations. The skills of Turkish dentists are recognized worldwide and they are references in their specialty.
They also have cutting-edge equipment and the cost of the operation remains lower than in other European countries. In addition, the stay on site is generally very pleasant and organized by the clinics themselves.
