In Phuket, the price of dental implants is much lower than in western countries, which is a relief for Aussies and Kiwis who cannot afford a dental implant at home. However, you need to consider the following when travelling to Phuket for implants, and these tips from past patients will make your visit more enjoyable:
Plan the Budget
A budget for the trip will help you maximize savings. In Phuket, the price of dental implants is significantly lower than Down Under, so you could save thousands. However, if the cost of travel and accommodation is too high then the savings will be wasted.
To start, here is a price comparison of the price of dental implants:
- Australia: AUD 5,098
- New Zealand: NZD 5,238
- Phuket: AUD 2,630 / NZD 2,871
Note: the prices above are approximate. Please check our current prices for your selected clinic for estimated costs of treatment.
This is a saving of more than 50% but a dental implant required 2 trips 3 to 6 months apart. Therefore, you should combine at least 1 trip with a family holiday, or consider getting multiple procedures done at once.
Speak To Your Dentist about the Procedure
Dental implants require the titanium implants to be inserted before a period of 3 to 6 months when the implant fuses with the jawbone. Once this has occurred, you will need to travel to Thailand again to have the artificial teeth installed.
In addition, you will need to get a thorough check-up before getting the dental implants in Phuket to ensure you are of sound oral health.
Select a High-Quality Clinic
When travelling to Thailand for treatment, there is more you need to consider than just how much are dental implants in Phuket. For instance, if you want world-class care at a reasonable price, you need to consider your clinic choice carefully. The reputable clinics listed have teams of experienced dentists and highly trained staff and have passed a series of stringent checks. The following clinics have been highly recommended by past patients:
Find Accommodation Near to the Clinic
Traffic in Phuket can be a problem, so finding accommodation close to the clinic will make your life easier. There are hotels of high standing across the island, so you will be able to get something in your price range.
You should also make sure you have transport between the hotel and clinic arranged, as the clinic can help if you are having difficulty.
Allow Time for Rest in Your Itinerary
The dentists recommend a few days rest before you travel back home so you should get the procedure done near the start of your holiday.
