As dental treatment is rather costly in the UK, more and more patients try to find less expensive places which 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 destination for any kind of medical treatment due to 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 expertise 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 making a considerable profit. But why pay high prices at home, when you can travel and to have your dental implants in Bulgaria and receive the same treatment quality, if not better!
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a "root" device resembling a tooth or a 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 jaw bone 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).
