If you are looking for affordable dental implants in Thailand, you should consider traveling to the island paradise of Phuket. The city features several highly-rated international dental clinics which offer dental implants at reasonable prices. Apart from the affordability of having the procedure done in Phuket, there is the bonus of having the opportunity to travel around the island for a world-class dose of culture, cuisine, and exotic experiences. There are many benefits of having the procedure done in Phuket, but here are the top 5 reasons to consider:
1. An Island Paradise
Phuket is a popular destination amongst tourists, but this does not take away from its natural beauty and exotic culture. The destination has much to offer in the way of picturesque beaches, vibrant nightlife, and delicious cuisine.
Thailand is known for its scrumptious street food. The bounty of seafood will have your mouth watering around every corner. The island is not short of entertainment to excite and enthrall you. Spend days soaking up the sun on the beaches or appreciating the breath-taking marine life while snorkeling in the clear, tropical waters. For those with the golf affliction, Phuket offers many championship courses favored by the Asian Tour players and amateurs from around the world.
2. Dental Implant Procedures and Recovery Time
The time taken for dental implants varies, depending on the patient’s bone structure. While some implants can be done in a day, others may require multiple visits over a period of a few months.
We at DTS suggest you request a quote through our system to nail down the price and to confirm the procedures that are necessary based on your own unique requirements. Often clinics will ask for panoramic x-rays to better assess bone structure and other factors.
Recovery time is also not fixed and can be anything between 6 weeks to 12 weeks. However, one is usually allowed to travel after a two-week recovery time. These two weeks allows you the right amount of time you need to relax, unwind and enjoy the Kingdom of Thailand.
3. Professional, Safe and Affordable Clinics
The DTS portfolio of dental clinics represents professionalism and years of experience delivering hygienic and safe dental care to patients.
A curated list of top clinics worldwide and our Phuket portfolio of dental excellence is no exception. We can recommend JCI-accredited and ISO-certified Sea Smile International Dental Clinic conveniently located in Patong Beach. The clinic has staff members that are part of International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and other specialties. And the clinic’s prices are among the most competitive not only in Thailand but worldwide.
Another premium clinic is Phuket Dental Signature, part of the BIDC group, and an affiliate member of the American Dental Association (ADA).
In Thailand, the procedures are paid in the local currency, the Thai Baht, and are thus doubly affordable for those from strong currency regions such as the USA, Canada, Australia, and the EU.
Traveling to Thailand is convenient from any part of the world as there are many airlines servicing the country. One can fly into Bangkok and take an onward trip to Phuket by bus, train or plane. Alternatively, one can fly directly into Phuket International Airport (HKT). Phuket is serviced directly from Australia and Europe, and code shares provide easy and affordable access from North America. Flying around the region is also affordable with low-cost carriers such as Air Asia, NokAir, Orient Thai Airlines and many more.

5. Accommodation and Transport
Phuket offers an array of accommodation to choose from depending on one’s budget. You can choose from the many luxurious beach resorts, 3-star hotels, or backpacker hostels. The island has accommodation to suit everyone’s taste, preference, and budget. Whether you are traveling solo or with your family, you can find appropriate digs for comfort and location. Traveling around the island is also simple and cheap – buses, taxis, and tuk-tuks are readily available and rental car agencies are plentiful.
