Best countries for Dental Implants

All hope is not lost to those who have lost a tooth or their entire set of teeth. Dental implants are a dentistry treatment which is a permanent solution to the loss of tooth. Sadly, that hope goes away when the realization of the cost of implants becomes known. It is even worse when you consider, that an implant is charged per tooth, which ends up being a steep figure if you have to have them done for the entire mouth. It is no secret that health charges in countries such as Australia and England for example, are enormous. You would still be looking at a steep figure even if you are covered by dental health plans. Looking to get implants in other countries offers a fix to this dilemma.

Best countries for dental implants

The best countries for dental implants would be those where you would get a good price and quality treatment. A super low price should always be looked to for red flags. Many different materials can be made of use in the implant process. Make sure that the dental clinic you choose makes use of dental grade quality. The good news is that you have a number of options to turn to, which results in a very good chance of you finding the ideal package to deal with your situation. Pricing packages for implants differ around the world, and it is the cost of living that is responsible for this. In South Africa for instance, it would be cheaper to get dental implants from the coastal city of Durban than the financial hub of Johannesburg. The cost of living is cheaper in the former, hence the pricing difference. So consider the cities along with the best countries for dental implants. The quality of work is also of major concern. The usual consensus is that due to the cheaper pricing, the lower the quality of work. This could not be more false. The truth is, is that some of the best countries for dental implants have gained this reputation because their dentistry is on par with many first world countries. In fact many of these dentists have gotten some of their training by working at noted practices. They understand that dental implants are a long and costly process to consider. Then there is the uncertainty of the outcome. Will the shape chosen by the dentist fit in with your facial shape? This is countered by 3D imaging which will allow the dentist to show his desired design on a photo of the patient. Take into consideration that you will be travelling to a foreign country to have your dental implant inserted. Once you have narrowed down your choices as the best countries for dental implants, choose a country that offers you scope for relaxation and touring. This is done for 2 reasons. When considering the best countries for dental implants, you must cater in recovery time. Most dental treatments need a small amount of recovery time or for the numbing anaesthetic to wear off. Dental implants are another story altogether. This is because surgical intervention is required for the placement of the implant, which is done directly into the jaw. You want to choose a country where you would have ample and affordable opportunity to do so in. Then there is also the factor of being able to do some travel in the country. Travelling all the way to some of the best countries for dental implants can be considered a waste if you do not get to see at least a small bit of the country. Even if you get to take a day or 2, do so and get yourself a nice double deal of new teeth and a holiday.

What to expect in the best countries for dental implants?

You are likely to make 2 trips to the best countries for dental implants. You can liaise with the dentist at your chosen clinic before you meet for your initial consultation. During the first trip, the dentist will have to place the dental implant into the jaw bone. This must be scheduled as an anaesthesiologist needs to be brought in to administer the sedation. Although the implant process does require a tiny bit of surgery, there is no need for hospitalization. It will be carried out in the dentist’s rooms. Unlike most other dental treatments, there is a recovery period here. Some of the best countries for dental implants have garnered that reputation not just for being able to provide quality services at affordable prices but for being able to also offer ample choice for recovery. South Africa has become one of the best countries for dental implants, because the country meets all of these criteria. English is also the main medium in the country which will ease the communication barrier you may find in some of the other best countries for dental implants. Take a day or 2 for a good rest which will aid in your recovery. Afterwards, enjoy a nice safari or visits to one of the many famed tourist sites in the country. It’s not strenuous travel and allows you to take advantage of getting more than just dental implants when making a trip here. The second trip will be done to attach the tooth. This requires a separate trip because it is done months after the first trip. If you do frequent travels to countries that offer affordable dental implants, such as on business trips, then schedule your appointments to correspond. The time period would depend on the bone density of each patient. This follow up visit is when a dental crown will be attached to the implant. Crowns are porcelain material shaped just like a tooth. They can be shaped and coloured variable ways. The additional benefit to porcelain besides looking just like a natural tooth is that it does not decay or stain. The colour chosen will be the one that remains. Keeping your teeth in good condition is now one step easier.

How To Stop Snoring

Snoring Prevention 

Anti Snoring Device 

sleep apnea

 

Is your spouse driving you crazy with their snoring?

Snoring can wreck havoc in a marriage. Most people lack the needed 8 hours of sleep. 

You don't need to suffer anymore. 

Up to 40% of the population in industrialized countries snore. The decreasing muscle tone during the sleep causes a narrowing of the upper respiratory tract. This narrowing accelerates the respiratory airflow, thereby various structures in the area of the upper respiratory tract start to vibrate and cause the snoring noise. So snoring is a mechanical process that can be counteracted mechanically. Here the dental therapy comes into action. Light or primary snoring do not have consequences on health whereas the rhonchopathy, the abnormal snoring, does.

We recently had one of our patient's phone in to East Coast Radio asking for a solution to her very loud snoring/sleep apnea. The patient could not go on holiday with her friends and family or have anyone sleep next to her due to her very loud snoring. This made it difficult socially for her and made her feel all alone. Our solution was the Silensor-SL snore guard.

The patient had a snoring app on her phone that measured her snoring in decibels. She put on the phone app then went to sleep and measured her snoring before Silensor-Sl snore guard and after Silensor-Sl snore guard. She was amazed by the results. Her snoring completely stopped after using Silensor-Sl. 

Sleep Apnea is, at a certain level of severity, a serious disease, that may cause not only sleepiness during the day but also serious systemic diseases. 

The snore guard called Silensor-Sl can change you and your spouses life. Feel free to chat to Dr Huson about the snore guard.

The benefits of the Silensor snore guard are:

They are a custom fit dental anti-snoring device.

Clinically proven to help stop snoring. No more sleepless nights

Manufactured by experienced personnel

Individually custom made to fit your mouth

Slimline, Lightweight and comfortable to wear.

The Silensor-sl can be expected to be very successful since in almost all cases the noise involved in snoring is caused by constriction of the airways. Because of its compact design, the device does not inhibit breathing through the mouth.
With severe corpulence a good success of the treating, however, is doubtful. The effectiveness will thus be increasingly reduced at a BMI (body-mass-index) of more than 30. The Silensor-sl cannot be used with edentulous patients and should only be fixed to a partial denture which has adequate retention. It is up to the dentist to assess whether or not residual teeth provide enough retention.

Dental Veneers Pros and Cons

Dental Veneers Pros 

Dental Veneers Pros and Cons

Dental veneers is an excellent way to get rid of gaps, straighten and whiten your teeth all in one go. It can change your life and increase your confidence. As the saying goes the more you smile the more receptive you are to attracting a mate. Smiling also activates the brain chemicals making you more happy. You will need to carefully weigh out the pros and cons of the procedures before you decide to get them. Here are various factors to think about and discuss with your dentist.


Dental veneers are thin pieces of tooth-colored porcelain cemented to the front surfaces of your natural teeth, and are an easy way to address a variety of physical and aesthetic problems. Because they're also permanent, however, you'll need to carefully weigh the pros and cons of the procedure before you decide to get them.

Pro #1: Easily Whiten Your Smile

Years of drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes or eating highly pigmented foods eventually take a toll on your teeth, turning them an unattractive shade of yellow or brown. Stained enamel can be bleached at home or by your dentist, but it can become stained again. If you're looking for an easier way to whiten your smile for good, dental veneers may be a good fit for you. Veneers are largely stain-resistant, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH),  you won't have to worry about discoloration or needing to have your veneers whitened.

Pro #2: Fix Gaps and Straightens Teeth

These problems can sometimes be helped with veneers. Veneers are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth – so although they don't change their positions, they do camouflage minor orthodontic problems once they're applied. Your natural teeth may still be gapped or crooked, but nobody will know aside from you and your dentist.
It's important to note that veneers can't always replace orthodontic treatment, and your dentist may refer you to an orthodontist instead of placing veneers. It is best for you to speak to your dentist and have him analyse your teeth and come up with a solution. 

Pro #3: Replace Damaged Enamel

Enamel is strong, but not indestructible. Your enamel may still be worn down from overzealous tooth brushing or eaten away by highly acidic foods and drinks. The stomach acid associated with acid reflux disease can also damage your enamel. This can become a cause for concern, because lost enamel doesn't grow back. Fortunately, it can be replaced. Veneers are an excellent treatment for teeth with enamel abrasion or enamel erosion, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and are aesthetically pleasing at the same time.

Dental Veneers Cons 

Con #1: Irreversible Procedure

Veneers are considered permanent because your dentist needs to change the structure of your natural teeth to properly place them. In this way, the outer layer of your enamel may be removed to make room.
Dental veneers are an excellent way to hide discolored, crooked or damaged teeth, but it's important to weigh the pros and cons that come with the territory before getting them. Make an appointment with your dentist to find out if dental veneers are a fitting solutio

Dental Implant Bridge

Cosmetic Dentistry Durban 

dental bridges

dental bridges

Our case of the month for May is Sarah. When Sarah came in to see us she felt embarrassed to smile and was not enjoying her food as she struggled to chew. This had a direct impact on her nutrition and overall health. 

Dr Huson's treatment plan for Sarah was dental bridges. We had to replace her old dental bridges with new ones. All our treatments including our dental bridges are internationally recognised and meet European standards. We offer the highest quality saving you time and money with no replacements required for the future. 

A big advantage of Sarah having her work done at Silver Oaks Dental Clinic was that it was done in less than a week. With our in house lab it was easy to make the necessary adjustments so that Sarah left here extremely happy with the end result. 

The other huge advantage is that our laboratory 'artist' Costa makes sure that it looks as natural as possible and will adapt the dental bridges to match your face, shape, and age.

We encourage our clients to chat to Costa and Dr Huson about their personal requirements with regards to the aesthetics of their treatment.  

The other advantages of having dental bridges done with Silver Oaks Dental Clinic are the following: 

  • It prevents your remaining teeth from shifting which can cause a problem in your bite.
  • It reduces the risk of bone loss thus maintaining the structures of your face.
  • The bridges are permanently fixed thus preventing them from moving around like dentures.
Bridges are not the treatment option for all patients. Dr Huson will need to analyse your teeth and suggest a treatment plan to your specification.
