Dental Implants Abroad

The trend of getting dental implants abroad is gaining traction as an alternative to costly and discomforting dental procedures in the UK. An increasing number of patients opt for teeth implants in foreign countries where the expenses are often significantly less than in the UK. There are numerous reasons why people decide to pursue dental implants overseas, with cost and time savings being the most prevalent.

If you’re considering getting dental implants abroad, it’s essential to be aware of a few considerations before finalizing your decision:

Is it safe to get dental implants in a foreign country?

Contrary to what many UK clinics might suggest, the dental implant surgery process and materials used abroad are largely similar.

However, variations do exist between clinics and countries (as they do within the UK) in terms of the experience and protocols of the dental team and surgeons who carry out the procedure, as well as the quality of materials utilized in the clinic and dental lab.

The quality of the “non-medical” services and facilities provided to you also play a significant role not only in the cost of the dental treatment but also in determining whether your experience with dental treatment abroad proves successful or regrettable.

In the following section, we’ll share a list of verified standards for you to peruse, courtesy of the international clinic accreditation body – the Global Clinic Rating (GCR).

Before you consider seeking dental implants abroad, we invite you to consult with our team. We’re ready and willing to address any concerns you may have.

As a potential patient, you might be uncertain about what to consider or avoid when seeking dental implant treatment abroad. To assist you in your journey, we’ve compiled this useful guide:

What to look for:

Expertise Available:

  • In the case of placing dental implants – it should be done by certified oral surgeons (not dentists) who perform the dental implant procedure. This requires them to pass an extra level of study (usually 2 years) in addition to their general dentistry education.
  • Experience plays a part here – how many dental implant cases has the team performed? You’re looking for senior dental implantologists.
  • Do they use the 2-3 nurses per patient in the chair to ease stress, pain and workload?
  • Do they use a chairside technician for the impressions & fitting of your teeth? (Chairside technicians are the ones responsible for the final fit and look of your teeth, the implantologist is responsible for the medical success and longevity of the procedure)
  • Does the admin team who communicates with you fully know the dental implant procedures and risks involved?
  • Does the entire team speak your language fluently?

Facilities Available:

  • Does the clinic have a 3D CBCT scanner & OPG X-ray device on location?
  • Does the clinic have its own dental laboratory at the location where master dental technicians will create your new teeth?
  • Is the clinic location certified & accredited to international standards of safety? (look for proof of ISO, GCR, TEMOS or other types of accreditations)
  • Is the clinic located close to the airport & hospital?

Services Available:

  • Does the clinic provide an airport pick-up?
  • Does the clinic help with organising local accommodation?

Results Available:

  • Does the clinic publish its patient-reported treatment outcome scores? (PROMs)
  • Are plentiful reviews available on the internet on 3rd party sites such as Google Maps & Facebook?
  • Can you see recent case studies of treatment on their website and social media?

What to avoid:

Lack of Expertise:

Avoid clinics with only dentists available or dentists who claim they are proficient in dental implants but lack the title of “surgeon” or “implantologist” appointed by an official university.

Neglectful Patient Care:

Check if the implantologist is supported by 2 or more nurses per patient, not just one who is overburdened or has to attend to multiple patients simultaneously.

Lack of Technical Prowess:

Clinics without an onsite laboratory or chairside technicians who are responsible for your teeth’ final fitting and look.

Incompetent Admin Team:

When you talk to them, ensure that the admin team fully understands your position, the dental implant procedures and the associated risks involved.

Language Barriers:

When you talk to them, ensure the team speaks your language fluently.

Substandard Facilities:

If the clinic lacks a 3D CBCT scanner & OPG X-ray device and / or has no dental laboratory., then they are not a specialist dental implant clinic.
Additionally, watch out for clinics that are not certified & accredited to international standards of safety or patient care.

Poor Services:

Beware of clinics that do not offer airport pick-up services or help organise local accommodation.

Lack of Transparency:

Steer clear of clinics that do not publish their patient-reported treatment outcome scores or have a few reviews on the internet on 3rd party sites such as Google Maps & Facebook.

Moreover, look out for clinics that have no recent case studies of treatment on their website and social media.

While general anaesthesia isn’t utilized during tooth extraction and the placement of dental implants, local anaesthesia is employed. If you’re anxious, you can also choose to be sedated. We provide two kinds of sedation:

Oral sedation – this is mixed with water and consumed shortly before the procedure. It can be combined with local anaesthesia.

Intravenous sedation – this is administered through a needle in the arm and is also used alongside local anaesthesia.

Regardless of your option, you’ll still be able to communicate with the implantologists, facilitating accurate implant placement effectively.

At Dental Holiday, we recognise that the prospect of wearing temporary dentures can be a source of concern for many patients, which is why we offer an alternative solution.

Instead of supplying temporary dentures, we initially equip you with custom-made temporary bridgework.

This provisional bridgework is engineered to be comfortable and look natural, enabling you to eat and speak with ease during the healing process.

Once your dental implants have fully healed, we invite you back to our clinic for the fitting of your final, personalized new bridgework. Our dental experts will collaborate with you to devise a tailored treatment plan that caters to your specific needs and ensures the most favourable outcome.

At Exclusive Dental Studio, our commitment lies in delivering superior care and treatment to our patients. So, if you’re in search of a comfortable and effective answer to missing teeth, we encourage you to arrange a consultation with us to explore your available options.

We’re pleased to inform you that we can typically determine your eligibility for dental implants during our initial discovery call.

In order to evaluate your suitability for dental implants, we require certain information like an X-ray or CBCT scan, a treatment plan from a different clinic, or images. Our team, comprised of experienced dental professionals who specialize in dental implant procedures, is confident that we can devise a personalized treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.

If you’re found to be an unsuitable candidate for dental implants, we’ll leverage our expert knowledge to suggest alternative treatment options that may better suit your circumstances. At Dental Holiday, we are committed to delivering top-notch care and treatment to our patients. We’ll accompany you throughout the process to ensure you attain a healthy and confident smile.
