Dental Implants

According to Fox News article published on Nov 1st, 2013, India is one of the most popular dental tourism destinations for Americans seeking dental implants, crowns, root canals and dentures. Extensive dental procedures in multispecialty hospitals - with state-of-the-art equipment and well trained doctors in India, matching international standards combined with travel and accommodation costs - is significantly and comparatively cheaper in India, than the same procedures done in western countries like USA and Europe.

Along with costs, it is important to consider other factors like different procedures that might be needed, length of the stay and experience of the dentist along with other people involved in the final outcome like ancillary care, orthodontists and periodontists. It is important to do preliminary research on what options are available, what materials will be used, discuss them with the dentist and also make sure that all those involved in your treatment, have the same level of expertise as your dentist.

Brand, size, specifications of the implant are important information to keep for your records. Therefore it is essential to request your dentist to include such details on your file. This information will help you if a need arises to visit your local dentist for a follow up visit. At the time of your visit, make sure sterile instruments are being used and hygiene is maintained in the clinic with gloves, masks etc. While planning your visit, make sure to find out your recovery time.

Based on the person’s requirements and holiday needs, dental tourism in India offers several dental packages. Various dental procedures available in India, include intra mouth dental scanning, surgical intervention under general anesthesia, ceramic caps without gold, prosthesis on the implants, gum grafting, vertical and horizontal bone grafting, fluoride treatments for children, maxillary surgery, palatal orthodontics, over denture, combined prosthesis with milling, dental bonding, dental bridges, caps, crowns, implants, dentures, root canals, composite and porcelain tooth veneers, tooth contouring and reshaping and teeth whitening.

However, it is important to understand that certain procedures like dental implants need two step treatments - first to set base for provisional crown and second one within 4-6  months when the implant is stabilized in the bone.
