If you’re traveling from western countries to Southeast Asia either for business or for leisure, you can combine your travel with discounted dental care. If you play contact sports or involved in recreational activities such as mountain biking or skateboarding, you may consider getting high quality but affordable mouthguard while you’re in the region.
A mouthguard is a protective device that covers the teeth and gums to prevent injury to the teeth, gums, and lips. Often used to prevent injuries in contact sports, mouthguards are also used as treatment for bruxism or part of some dental procedures.
Highly qualified dentists in Southeast Asia provide custom-fitted mouthguards made from high quality biocompatible materials. These are individually designed and professionally made in a dental office or a dental laboratory.
What to Expect
When you visit a top rated clinic in any Southeast Asian country, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth. This will be used when molding the mouthguard using biocompatible materials that offer the most comfort and protection. If you’re grinding your teeth at night, your dentist will also provide a nocturnal bite plate to prevent tooth damage.
The cost of getting mouthguard in most western countries (including the dentist’s fee) can easily set you back by at least $1,000. In Southeast Asia, where you can expect immediate and quality dental care that meets western standards, you can expect to pay $150. Even with associated costs, you will still save enormous amount of money.
