A Dental implant in Thailand, to replace a missing tooth, is an alternative to bridges or dental dentures or bridgework.
A dental implant is made from titanium and is surgically implanted in your jaw bone (refer below) so as to act like the root of your new tooth.
It is necessary to wait 4 months for the implant / ‘new root’ to settle in and for your bone to adapt. A second visit is required to instal the final cap on top of the 'new root’.
For those who may not find it practical to return to Thailand, 4 months later, then it is feasible that second part of surgery can be completed at home.
