Dental implants abroad
When is dental treatment with implants abroad possible, when should you stop??
"Having cheap implants used abroad" sounds very tempting, especially when savings amount to 5-digit amounts. But should everyone really take this offer seriously or do special circumstances generally fall out?
When an implant treatment abroad can be considered
Anyone who is seriously interested in a dental prosthesis service abroad will certainly get detailed information in advance and study various sources. Rarely does a blinking internet banner attract attention to the possibility of having your teeth fixed abroad. First and foremost, the potential cost savings generate interest. It addresses patients who either cannot or do not want to afford the dentist’s home offer. Furthermore, the patient should be flexible in terms of time and not have too high expectations. There must be a willingness to take risks and a real thirst for adventure in order to simply “jump into the cold water”. Because building a doctor-patient relationship of trust is almost impossible.
When should no foreign treatment be considered?
There are numerous reasons against treatment abroad. If you have high expectations, you shouldn’t consider visiting abroad. A true expert should be consulted in the home country, especially for aesthetically difficult treatments in the anterior region. Here, too, it may already be deal with longer journeys or even overnight trips. Furthermore, with “smaller” treatments such as the use of one or two implants, the question arises as to whether the potential cost savings are high enough so that the effort pays off. After all, there are not only treatment costs, but also travel and accommodation costs. Hungary, Czech Republic, Spain, Turkey? Read more on our website and decide for yourself!

But even very complex treatments such as bone-building measures in several steps, which require continuous care over a longer period of time, are not necessarily suitable for international treatments. The time taken and the travel expenses for possibly more frequent arrivals is in most cases too great. Furthermore, each additional trip or a longer stay increases the costs due to travel costs and costs for board and lodging. Another indication that one should refrain from treatment abroad are unexplained quality standards and no provision of guarantees. A foreign standard for doctors, dental technicians etc. does not have to correspond to German. Therefore it can happen that both the treating practice / clinic and / or the dental laboratory deviate far from the usual quality standard. Unless this standard has been clarified and set out beyond doubt, one should urgently refrain from possible treatment.
Implants – dentures with screw cap
If your own teeth can no longer be saved, a replacement is needed. One option here is implants that are screwed to the jaw. An implant consists of 3 parts: the screw, the connector and the actual denture. The screw forms the base and replaces the tooth root. It is screwed tightly to the jawbone. The screw can have the shape of a ball or a cylinder, and it can also be supplied with or without a screw thread. In the next step of the implant assembly, the connector is connected to the screw. The visible part of the implant is attached to this later. The dentist attaches the artificial tooth, crown, bridge or partial denture to the connector. Finished.
The time factor
Even if it appears that an implant is not a lot of work, time must be planned. If no expensive pre-treatments such as periodontitis treatment or bone building measures are required, the practitioner will first drill holes in the jawbone and screw in the screws. The gums are then sewn together using this artificial tooth root so that it can irreversibly grow together with the jawbone. This healing process usually takes 2 to 5 months. The connector can then be attached, as can the artificial tooth. If the jaw does not hold Implants can only be inserted if the jaw substance is in order. There must be no inflammation or massive bone loss. If the jawbone is not firm enough, there are various ways to remedy this deficiency, for example the jaw can be filled with bone fragments from the chin.
Disadvantages of implants
Like every medal, implants have their downside. Complications can arise during treatment, for example if the screw does not grow in or the doctor accidentally injures a nerve during the operation. Another point that speaks against implants is the enormous cost. Health insurance companies only contribute a fixed subsidy to the costs. The remaining costs must be borne by the patient. That is why implants from abroad are very popular, which are often much cheaper. Furthermore, implants are not suitable for everyone. Adolescents and children should generally not be given implants and some adults may find their jaws too narrow to be able to use an implant.
Better than bridges and prostheses
Implants are the better alternative to bridges and prostheses. Implants stimulate the jawbone through pressure stimuli. There is no shrinking like bridges and prostheses. The patient can bite hard and the pronunciation remains completely unaffected. Even after 10 years, 90% of the implants can still be fully loaded.
