If you are considering dental treatment abroad it is important to reflect on some key issues pertaining to treatment beforehand.

  • with complex treatments involving the provision of implants, crowns or veneers comes increasing risk of post-treatment complications particularly with treatment normally taking several months being compressed into much shorter time frames to appeal to patients
  • It is critical to obtain a frank and comprehensive cost-benefit analysis first from providers and not to have benefits overstated to the detriment of disadvantages flowing from what is invasive, irreversible treatment
  • Inquire as to what aftercare and maintenance care will be available post treatment as this is as important an element of successful outcomes as the treatment itself
