Why choose London to have your dental implants?
Before making the decision of going abroad for your dental implant placements are you sure you have all the relevant information you need to know before you go.
Here at the Marylebone Implant Centre (right in the heart of the famous Harley Street Medical District) we understand that dental implants treatment, although life changing, is a substantial investment. However, while deciding where you want to have your treatment done, we should state that we have re-done a substantial amount of dental implant treatments that were initially performed abroad. There are a couple of things that you need to bear in mind when making you decision.
In the past, UK residents with a need for dental implants placement or even expensive cosmetic dental work have had to travel abroad for the treatment. Apart from the actual cost of the dental implant treatment, there are many other related costs such as travel and accommodation required that when added up can make it very expensive. Upon a closer analysis, it is clear that the cost of having the dental implants treatment done abroad is up to three times the cost of having it done in the UK.
One of the factors that people going abroad need to take into consideration when having dental implants placed abroad is what aftercare and follow up care will be provided, how much will this cost and who covers these expenses? This is because any specialist treatment requires regular maintenance that has to be administered at the place of treatment. These additional costs sometimes discourage people who have gone for treatment abroad from continuing with the follow up visits. This can have a very negative effect on their teeth. Having had the dental implant treatment elsewhere, dentists in the UK would be reluctant to do the maintenance in case of an infection or damage on the dental implants, they would not wish to be legally responsible. It therefore makes a lot of sense for a resident of the UK to have the dental implants placed in the UK.
