Dental implants in Southeast Asia are up to 80 percent cheaper than in the US and other western countries. Although the procedure differs from country to country, it is still far less expensive than western alternatives. If you want to save a bundle but don’t want to sacrifice quality, you should consider going to Southeast Asia to get this procedure done.
Over the years, dental tourism in Southeast Asia has become increasingly popular, especially for US patients and Europeans seeking cheaper dental implant alternatives. Dental implant procedures in the west cost a fortune. As such, those whose medical insurance provide coverage for the procedure are mostly the only ones who choose to have it done in the west. If you don’t have dental coverage, or if your medical insurance does not cover dental implants, an alternative is to have the procedure done in Southeast Asia.
Aside from affordable prices, most dental institutions in Southeast Asia that caters to foreign patients provide high quality services. Doing so makes the dental tourism industry attractive and this has contributed to the overall growth of the industry in the past years.
It is not difficult to find a dental clinic catering to dental travelers from the west. In fact, some Southeast Asian countries have organizations dedicated to the improvement of medical tourism. You’ll most certainly be able to find a list of their members located on their websites. All you’ll need to do is to contact the dental office and set an appointment. You’ll need to indicate when you’re expected to arrive so they can prepare any complementary services if available.
