Quality dental services are available in Indonesia although more affordable prices are desirable. The cost of dental implants in Indonesia is alarming, with some institutions charging more than the yearly earnings of an average citizen. The government is already addressing this and other issues concerning the general availability of dentists in the country. However, if you can afford to travel overseas for a dental implant procedure, you should seriously consider other countries in the region for a variety of reasons.
One of the reasons is the advanced technologies available in other Southeast Asian countries. For instance, the technology used in Computer Guided Dental Implant Surgery is relatively new in the world, but is now available in neighboring countries such as Thailand and Singapore, albeit only a limited number of institutions have the technology and qualifications to perform this type of dental implant. This technology allows the procedure of implanting new teeth to be completed in less than an hour.
Another example is the All-on-4 technology that enables patients to receive a new set of teeth in only a day. This technology is more widely available in Southeast Asian countries. This is also a popular option for those who have completely lost their permanent teeth or have a weak jawbone structure.
There is little doubt that Indonesia will catch-up with its neighbors in terms of the technology and prices of dental treatment. However, until that day, its Southeast Asian neighbors that can provide better dental implant options if you are interested in travelling to other countries for the procedure.
