Dental care abroad
In 2013 over half a million UK citizens travelled abroad to receive dental implant treatment ranging from the simplest to the most complicated cases. Not only did they acquire top quality service - the same they would in the UK (many times even better!), but it also saved them millions of pounds. Needless to say, money saved on dental care could be spent on something else, for example, a holiday in a beautiful country like Bulgaria.
Why have my dental implants abroad?
As dental treatment is rather costly in the UK, more and more patients try to find less expensive places that do not compromise on quality. Due to present day affordable travel fares, Internet technology and important advances in medical science, dental tourism is becoming a global trend. In many cases, it is cheaper to book a flight, a hotel and pay for dental work in a foreign country, than it would be in the UK.
A lot of our patients have discovered Bulgaria as a preferred country for any kind of medical treatment through the high professionalism of Bulgarian doctors and dentists hired by hospitals and clinics in the UK. The growing demand in the UK for medical professionals trained in Eastern Europe is a solid proof that they are as highly qualified as their British colleagues. Bulgarian dentists are well respected for their professionalism both in their own country and overseas.
Dental implants treatment costs are constantly on the rise in many Western countries. In the UK alone, dental care is already a multi-billion pounds industry that makes a considerable profit. But why pay high prices at home, when you can travel to Bulgaria and receive the same treatment, if not better, at the Smile Dental Services - a fully certified medical clinic.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a "root" device resembling a tooth or group of teeth used to replace missing teeth. It is usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations.
Dental implants today are root-form endosseous implants, i.e., they appear similar to an actual tooth root (hence the term "root-form") and are positioned within the bone (endo- being the Greek prefix for "in" and osseous referring to "bone"). The bone of the jaw accepts and osseointegrates with the titanium post. The fusion of the implant surface with the surrounding bone is known as osseointegration. Although dental implants will fuse with bone, they lack the periodontal ligament, and will, as a result, feel slightly different than natural teeth during chewing.
Prior to the advent of root-form endosseous implants, most implants were either blade endosseous implants (the metal piece embedded in the bone resembling a flat blade) or subperiosteal implants (a framework construction attached with screws to the exposed bone of the jaws).
What are the advantages of dental implants?

How long is the process?
We are using several different systems of dental implants. Some of them are "immediate loading" - that means we can finish the whole treatment in one visit. Some are "normal" dental implants - you have to come to our dental clinic twice - in 3 to 6 months apart. Everything depends on the quality of your jaw bone etc. We will decide together on what kind of dental implant system will be used when you come for your first check-up.
