Good Reasons to Have Dental Implants in Thailand

Dental implants in Thailand are the latest advancements in Thailand's dental technology. Damaged or lost teeth can be easily and quickly replaced with a natural-looking, permanent and more functional alternative to dentures and dental bridges. Thailand is one of the most cost-effective destinations for dental implants.  You can save up to 80% when compared to the cost of dental implants done in the US, Australia, Europe or other developed countries. The low cost doesn't imply inferior quality of implants but it is due to the low cost of living in the country. In fact, you can get the same level of care that you would get in your home country.

What is A Dental Implant?

Dental implants are the procedure of replacing missing or damaged teeth. This type of implant uses titanium material placed into the patient's jaw to hold a tooth in place. Dental implants offer a more effective method of preserving the teeth than traditional dental bridges since they don't rely on other teeth for support. Dental implants typically use pure titanium screws with either roughened or smoothed surfaces that serve as the root of the tooth. Some dental professionals use alloy as an alternative to titanium.

Thailand Dental Implants Success Rate

A study conducted by The University of Iowa College of Dentistry showed that Thai dental implants have a success rate of 91% for upper teeth and 98% for lower teeth. It's worthwhile to note that the success of the implants doesn't only depend on the skills and the expertise of the Thai dental professionals, but also on the jaw bone structure and the overall health of the patient. This goes to show that dental implants in Thailand are highly reliable and advanced.

Advanced Technology

Surgeons performing dental implants in Thailand use state-of-the-art technology with computer-guided imagery for a streamlined treatment process. With the implant procedure's careful planning, surgical template and immediate load concept, you can have a complete implant in less than one hour. Among the types of dental implants performed in most Thailand dental clinics are Single tooth Dental Implants, Immediate Dental Implants or Porcelain on Crown Implants, All-On-4 implants, Zygoma Implants and more. There are many dental implant clinics in Thailand and a high number of clinics are located in the city of Bangkok.


Competence of Thai Dental Professionals

All dental clinics in Thailand are required to follow medical and health standards that have been certified by the Thailand government. Thai dentists and periodontists are highly experienced and fully trained to perform dental implants in Thailand. In fact, many of them have trained in countries known for advanced health technology such as the US and UK.

Eliminating Language Barrier

The dentists and the staff of the country's dental implant centers speak English fluently. Additionally, the dental and medical tourism program of Thailand entices medical and dental clinics and hospitals to have an English-speaking staff or an interpreter for foreign patients. This ensures that language won’t be a barrier during the treatment process.

The cost of dental implants in Thailand ranges from $800 to $1,300, and most dental implant quotes cover all logistics and medical costs. Thailand is one of the leading dental and medical tourism destinations in Asia. Many tourists visit this country each year for dental and medical care, and dental implants are one of the most popular dental procedures in Thailand.
