Dental implants are expensive in Australia and New Zealand which is why an increasing number of Aussies and Kiwis are travelling to Thailand for dental work. In Phuket, dental implant prices are more reasonable, especially considering that this is classed as cosmetic dentistry and as such uncovered by government-funded healthcare Down Under.
The low implants prices in Phuket make treatment affordable for people who need the procedure to fill in spaces caused by missing or broken teeth. However, before travelling to Phuket you should review the following information which will help you make the right decision:
Set a Budget for Your Trip
The first thing you need to do is set a budget for your trip as although the dentistry is inexpensive, the travel costs can eat into your savings. Planning your trip and treatments could help you save thousands of dollars. Alternatively, if you combine treatment with a vacation in this exotic destination you should plan in order not to waste time when you could be having fun.
How Much Can You Save?
The following price comparison illustrates how much money you will save by travelling to Phuket:
- Australia: AUD 5,098
- New Zealand: NZD 5,238
- Phuket: AUD 2,630 / NZD 2,871
This is a saving of approximately 50%. Note: the prices above are approximate. Please check our current prices for your selected clinic for estimated costs of treatment.
Select a High-Quality Clinic
Many clinics offer inexpensive dental implants in Phuket at reasonable prices. These reputable clinics have experienced dentists, trained staff, and hygienic facilities as well as many positive reviews. The following clinics in Phuket have been recommended highly by past patients:
Dental Implant Surgery
The complete procedure involves two steps. Firstly, titanium implants are implanted into your jawbone under the gum. These need time to heal and bond to your jawbone, which can take 3 to 6 months. After the implants heal, you will have to travel back to Phuket when the dentist will install the artificial teeth.
Your dentist will probably advise against travelling immediately after the procedure so you should organize your holiday accordingly. If you are planning beach activities or other treatments have them before your dental implants.
If you plan your trip the right way, you will benefit greatly from getting dental implants in Phuket. The price there is low and the quality of clinics is high. Schedule an appointment by getting in touch with our customer support or book online at no extra charge.
