Why Avoid Out Of Country Dental Work?

July 22, 2021

Dental work overseas may cost less, but is the risk worth it? If you are looking into going out of the country for dental work of any kind, we suggest you reconsider - or at the very least, do your research.

Here are the top 3 things you need to know:

1.) The standard of care in many countries is far below what we have come to expect here in the United States. The quality of materials, the technology, and the training that we receive here in the US is superior, thus giving you the safest, most pleasant experience possible.

2.)  Any time you have a chip, break, or other issues with the dentistry received in another country, you likely will not fly overseas for repair. Many dentists here in the US would be hesitant to take over your case once it has been completed overseas.  It is often more expensive to repair chips, breaks, etc. once your smile has been completed by another dentist.

3.) Your health is at risk. Many patients we have seen are happy with the way their smile looks after receiving work abroad. However, we're also seeing is that many of these patients are suffering from poor fit or function (biting and chewing is made difficult) or the gums are no longer healthy.

Here at Atlanta Dental Spa, our focus is on keeping our patients healthy. We want you to have the very best care possible in a safe and relaxing environment. If you are looking to have a dental procedure of any kind, we would be happy to help with any questions you may have - text or call us at 404-816-2230!
