You are not limited to receiving treatment in the UK, thanks to the advent of dental tourism. Restore your smile, correct your teeth or receive new ones, with an array of Budapest dental procedures in Hungary.
The capital city of the country, Budapest, described as the ‘Paris of the East’, is visited by millions of tourists every year. It is known for its beautiful churches, thriving entertainment, cultural scenes, and thermal springs which have been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. It is also visited by UK residents for its popular, massively discounted, medical procedures.
Are you considering visiting Hungary or other countries for life-changing dental work? Read the guide below on how to find the best Budapest dentist around.
A staggering 35,000 people visit Hungary for the purpose of correcting their teeth. The country is known for its high calibre dentists who provide exceptional services at a fraction of the cost.
That said, tread carefully and do your homework. While prices are significantly lower when compared to those in Britain, you should still practice caution as you do not want to become the victim of a scam or botched dental work..
Make a list of suitable dental clinics that you find online and compare them, based on the variety of offered treatments, their cost, technology available, the equipment used and the condition of the facilities.
Reading online reviews can prove useful, especially because the majority of them should be genuine and unbiased. Going back to the list, you should cross off clinics that do not include reviews or have only negative ones.
The list of treatments
Dental treatments abroad are inexpensive compared to the same treatments back home. That said, if you need more than one treatment done, you should have them administered on the same visit. Travelling back and forth for multiple sessions to the dentist’s recliner chair does add up, so try to find a clinic that provides all of the procedures you require.
At the same time, you will also have to account for follow-up appointments when planning your dental treatment and decide whether you will fly back to the country concerned for these or find a reputable dentist back home that fits your budget.
What treatments do people travel overseas for?
Cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry and other related treatments that cost an appreciable amount.
Dental implants administered abroad to replace missing teeth, which are life-changing but more than the average UK resident can afford, are popular. You can gain your desired smile and improve upon your oral health with this prosthesis at a fraction of the normal price.
Cosmetic dentistry, (which can include veneers and some forms of brace), is not often covered by dental insurance, which is why people who want to improve upon their appearance might be interested in dental tourism.
Any unique attractions in Budapest?
As previously mentioned, Hungary might have a lot on offer for tourists, but the thermal springs are a notable attraction unique to the country.
If you would like to escape the busy city of Budapest for downtime in the country, there are scatterings of spa resorts right across the country.
