If you need Dental Implants, you may want to consider getting your dental implants in India.

Costs of implants

Cost is a major concern whenever you need any dental work done, and one of the most common and costly procedures one may need is what is known as a dental implant. A dental implant is basically a fake root that is made to support either a single tooth, a set of teeth, or dentures. In the US and in the UK this procedure can literally cost you thousands of dollars, however many reputed dentists located in India can offer this procedure for only a fraction of the price.

Treatment becomes a vacation

Medical care in India may cost as little as one tenth the price of dental care in the US. This becomes particularly appealing when you need multiple implants, and quite often the amount of money you can save on your India dental implants can even offset the price of the trip. Meaning an added bonus vacation,  turning your dental implant visit into a vacation; and making it something to look forward to instead of something to dread.

Highly trained dentists

Along with saving a lot of money on your dental implants, you may be surprised as to how well-trained India dentists are. Chances are you have several dentists from India right in your neighborhood. India dental training is definitely up to any country’s standards including the UK and the US, often even surpassing the dental care offered in these countries. Dental education in India consists of a four year Bachelors Degree, this is followed by a one year internship in which they apply for a Bachelor’s in Dentistry. An India dentist then must pass stringent testing monitored by the Central Board of Secondary Education. Only then may they enter into a Dental School, which is another four year program again tightly regulated by the CBSE. This is followed by another year of internships before they are considered dentists. This is actually a longer process than the one in the US. Moreover, there are several India dentists who specialize in dental implants, and receiving a specialization takes additional training on top of what has been outlined already.
