Dental Tourism: Everything You Need to Know

Proper dental hygiene is important for a variety of reasons going beyond tooth decay and gum disease. Today, the medical community continues to unveil new research connecting oral health to a host of seemingly unrelated ailments – everything from pancreatic cancer to Alzheimer’s disease. It has never been so clear just how important it is to take proper care of your mouth.

Unfortunately, getting dental work done has never been as expensive as it is now. Routine cleanings and check-ups are expensive enough. And then if you actually require any additional work done, the costs soar. Knowing that you ought to go to the dentist and being able to afford going are two very different things.

Cue the rise of dental tourism. Thanks to the availability of state-of-the-art dental facilities in Vietnam and other emerging nations, people are finding that they can combine travel and dental work. And many are saving a great deal of money in the process.

Dental Tourism is Safe and Affordable

Many people are concerned that having their dental work done overseas in a country like Vietnam is not entirely safe. They may even imagine sitting in the dentist’s chair in a dodgy, back-alley clinic. But the reality is so much different.

You’ll find that many of the top dental tourism clinics exceed the standards of clinics you would visit at home. Dr Hung & Associates Dental Center features state-of-the-art facilities that make use of modern technology and equipment. The clinic’s unique warranty policy offers a lifetime guarantee for implants, and a ten-year guarantee for prosthodontics, such as bridges and crowns.

The clinic’s location in a developing nation means much lower prices than you would expect to pay at home, but in no way entails inferior treatment. In fact, the care you receive at a clinic like the Dental Center is likely to be of an even higher standard than what you receive in Australia, Europe or North America.

Transform Your Annual Check-Up with a Holiday in Vietnam

With dental tourism on the rise, your annual visit to the dentist can become much more than a routine event. HCMC is only a short flight from Australia, and it’s already a popular destination for Australians on holiday. And if you choose to have your dental work done here in Vietnam, the money you end up saving can easily be rolled into your holiday budget.

And in the event that you need serious dental work done – such as an implant – scheduling the procedure at the Dental Center could end up saving you significant money. This is in spite of the fact that the implant you receive is of the highest quality, produced by Nobel Biocare, Straumann or Biohorizons.

In fact, many Australians are finding that purchasing airfare to Vietnam and having their implant installed there is still more affordable than doing the same at home. With that in mind, your upcoming trip the dentist could end up turning into a full-fledged holiday!
