We all want a beautiful smile and nothing spoils one like missing teeth. Dental implants are an effective solution for this but they are quite expensive in Australia and New Zealand. And you cannot use insurance to pay for them as they are considered a cosmetic treatment. Thankfully, in Phuket dental implant prices are much less, attracting scores of Aussies and Kiwis.
How Much Can You Save?
On average, a dental implant costs AUD $5,098 and NZD $5,238 in Australia and New Zealand respectively. In Phuket dental implant prices start around AUD $2,630 / NZD $2,871. Rest assured that the price difference does not mean you are getting low quality implants or an inferior dental service. No, the real reason why implants are so cheap in Phuket is that it costs much less to run a dental practice in Thailand than Down Under.
Thailand’s lower labour and materials and inexpensive living all contribute the the country’s affordable dentistry. Moreover, in Phuket dentists do not have to bear the brunt of bureaucratic red tape as those in Australia and New Zealand do. When people do not know these reasons, they tend to question the quality of the dental work in Phuket. Sure, you should be on the look out for scams and never trade dollars for health. Just remember that the key to getting quality dental implants in Phuket is going to the right clinic.
Choosing the Best Clinic
The smart way of selecting a clinic in Phuket is by using a dental tourism portal that screens every clinic before adding it to its listing. You can benefit from their background checks that you cannot do on your own. These can include checking malpractice and criminal records, verifying staff qualifications and dental association memberships etc.
Two of the best dental implant clinics in Phuket are A. B. Dental Care Clinic and Sea Smile Dental Clinic (Phuket). Clinics like these realize the importance of offering top-quality dental work despite the low prices. As mentioned, Thailand’s economy helps them do that. Many of the highly-qualified and experienced dentists at these clinics have received at least part of their training in the US, Europe and Australia.
Use the Savings for a Tropical Vacation
With a couple of thousand dollars’ savings on each dental implant, you can save quite a bit if you need multiple implants. Even a single implant will cover your cost of travel and accommodation. With savings from several implants you can easily plan a nice vacation in this tropical paradise. Phuket is home to many of the best Thai beaches. The main resort town of Patong features world-class seaside resorts, spas, restaurants and nightclubs.
All things considered, in Phuket dental implant prices come with no strings attached. Feel free to learn more about the clinics mentioned above and see which one seems more suitable for you. Traveling is one of the best things we can do. Affordable, quality dental implants seem to be an amazing motivation for traveling!
