Affordable Implant Dentistry in India
India is a country which is becoming more and more popular, especially among patients who want dental implants at affordable prices.
Dental implants are basically special medical titanium screws which are fitted into the jaw. Then, this titanium structure is allowed to fuse nicely with the bone, and after the healing time (2 to 6 months, depending), the dentist will place the dental cap onto the implant.
This healing time is medically known as osseo-integration, and the length of the healing time depends on many factors such as the immune system of the patient or other underlying conditions which make fusion more complex.
India is a country which is becoming more and more popular, especially among patients who want dental implants at affordable prices. Even though you might have to travel more, it is definitively worth it, because you will pay even up to 50% less than for the same procedure in the US.
Regarding the reputation of the dentists, you do not have to worry, because plenty of professionals have been studying at dental schools in the US or other European countries where dental education is at very high standards.
Nowadays, it is possible to get dental implants within one single visit to the dental practice. These are called the mini dental implants and since they can be fitted within as little as one or two hours, they are also much cheaper than the traditional implants.
After the teeth are extracted, there are generally three different ways in which the implantation procedure can occur:
- placing the implants immediately after the tooth extraction
- placing the implant 2 or 3 weeks after the extraction- known as delayed immediate post-extraction implant surgery
- placing the implant 3 months after the extraction- known as late implantation
Most patients who will chose India as their dental tourism destination, will either have the extractions at home, and go for the implantation treatment to India; or, undergo immediate post-extraction dental implant treatments.
Make sure to run a thorough research before choosing the dental clinic you are going to be treated at in India. It is possible even to conduct an interview online with the dental professional, right before deciding to choose his services.
This is only to make sure you feel comfortable with the respective professional. Otherwise, consider recommendations from friends, family members or acquaintances who have already travelled to India to undergo dental treatments.
