Are dental implants worth it?
As well as the aesthetic benefits, dental implants will support a healthy bite and keep surrounding teeth in their proper positions. Furthermore, the ability to chew with them helps prevent jawbone deterioration. Multiple studies and reviews of dental implants abroad and in the UK have shown that dental implants are also beneficial to your oral health as a whole.
What is the best age for dental implants?
Although there are no strict age limits, dental implants aren’t suitable for under-18s.

For older people, their physical health is more important than their age.
How do you know if you can get dental implants?
Broadly speaking, your gums and teeth should be in good shape. To give adequate support to the dental implant, you also need good bone density. You should commit to habits like brushing and flossing your teeth correctly; and if you smoke, you should consider stopping before you apply for the treatment.
What are the criteria for dental implants?

You should have good oral tissue health and should be free of serious medical problems that might affect bone healing.

Why do dentists charge so much for implants?
The main reason for the high dental implants abroad cost is due to the lengthy training and experience required of all the professionals involved in assessing, producing and fitting a dental implant.

Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?
In general terms, you must be in good physical health and your gums and teeth should be in good condition. We also need to establish that your jawbone density is sufficient to adequately support the implant. We do not recommend dental implants for minors – in fact, the jawbone doesn’t become fully formed until you are in your mid-twenties, so suitability for the procedure is also age-dependent (although there is no upper limit, provided you meet the other criteria above). Finally, the long-term success of the procedure depends on you committing to maintaining good oral hygiene after the implants are in place – another factor to bear in mind before booking an appointment.
How long will my stay in Romania have to be?
This depends on the course of treatment you are booking. Every patient is an individual and is treated as such, so we will devise a schedule of treatment that works for you and minimises the costs as much as possible. As a rough guide, for dental implants, you can expect a minimum of three visits to our clinic, covering an initial consultation, surgery and then, after healing of the area is complete, fitting of a permanent abutment, crown preparation and crown fitting. How long each of these visits will take depends on how many implants you are having. This timescale does not take into account any need for tooth extraction prior to having implant surgery, whether you need a bone graft to strengthen the area of the jaw, and whether you have any other underlying oral health issues. After your initial consultation, we will be better able to tell you how many visits you will need to make and how long each stay should be.
