Dental tourism Europe.
Dental implantation is a common and very popular surgical procedure to replace one or more missing teeth, and this procedure is now more used than its alternatives that are full or partial denture and dental bridges. There are different types of dental implants, but the most common is a root, made up of titanium or other materials, that is inserted into the jawbone, with an abutment and a crown or other prosthesis attached to.
Dental work abroad. The service.
This kind of treatment is preferred than the others because it has many benefits, like it helps to prevent dental migration and loss in bone tissue, gives a sense close to natural teeth, enhances overall appearance and guarantee a long-term anchor thanks to a biologic process called osseointegration where materials, such as titanium, form a bond to bone; on the contrary, a dental implant procedure requires a healthy bones and tissues, and even if complications tend to be uncommon, risks include things like infection, nerve or surrounding teeth injury, sinus issues. Anyway, the success rate of the treatment is from 90 to 95%.
Dental implantations are widely used for over 40 years, but because it is a surgical procedure, prices are even quite expensive and it requires x-rays, at least two visits, with a period of 3 to 6 months between the two visits as the implants heal with the bone tissue and more extra procedures if the patients has not suitable bones.
Prices are not cheap especially in that countries where cost of living are high, for example in the U.K., where the entire procedure that includes the implant, abutment and crown can cost around 4,000 dollars out of the NHS; Italy is also an expensive country, and so Belgium, Germany or France.
Many people living in Western Europe decide to travel to seek cheaper treatments and find them in countries in the East Europe, where cost of living is lower, but dentists and clinics are at the same level of experience and technologies.
