While it sounds an enticing prospect for anyone looking for a cheap dental implant, before you start packing your bags, there are other factors besides price to consider.
Dental implants in India – Potential Risks
- Rushed Dental implants – Most people considering dental implants in India do so because they need complex treatment. This may include multiple treatments such as tooth extraction, bone grafts, implants, and crowns. Typically, this would take several months in Australia with regular check-ups to ensure everything is going smoothly. Often this isn’t the case for people traveling to India for dental implants. They may only have taken 2 or 3 weeks off from work. As a result, all of their dental implant treatment has to be fitted into a short window. This can be a recipe for disaster.
- Varying degrees of training – Regulations and standards of dentistry are high in Australia, but this may not be the case when getting dental implants in India. Your dentist in India may not have the same degree of dental implant experience and if something should go wrong, is there any form of redress in place?
- What happens if something goes wrong? – Even the best dental implant dentist can’t guarantee 100% success. Things can and do go wrong and this can occur weeks, months, or years after you’ve returned home.
Flying back to India may not be possible, whereas if you had undergone dental implants in Australia, going back to your dentist for corrective treatment wouldn’t be a problem.
So rather than be swayed by the tooth implant cost in India do bear in mind the advantages of getting dental implants in Australia instead.
