Dental Treatment Overseas: A tempting option for Australians

Isn't it strange how the Australian public health system seems to regard teeth as an optional extra? Medicare doesn't cover even basic dentistry except for concession card holders...and these often face waiting periods of up to two years for treatment. Anyone would think teeth were a luxury!

If you have private health insurance, this might cover some of your dental costs. But if you need a complex procedure like an implant, you'll still be facing thousands of dollars in out of pocket expenses.

That's why many Australians are looking overseas, especially Thailand, for high-quality dental care. There are no waiting periods, and the cost savings are enormous. Many dentistry procedures also come with relatively quick recovery times, so unlike some more invasive procedures, it's entirely possible to combine dental treatment with a proper holiday.

What about multi-stage treatments?

If you need something like an implant, you might be wondering how getting this treatment overseas would work, as it usually involves several trips to a dentist or dental surgeon over a period of several months.

But there's good news. Advanced new procedures mean that for many patients, the number of visits necessary can be reduced. For instance, the Bangkok International Dental Hospital offers several revolutionary kinds of dental implant including one-day implants in which the existing tooth is removed, and the first stage titanium implant post placed and embedded in the jaw, all during the same surgical visit.

The particular kind of treatment available will depend on your situation, but if you need any kind of advanced dental treatment, and you think of your teeth as a necessity, not a luxury, you owe it to yourself - and your wallet - to investigate the options for having it overseas.
