Advantages of implants

Why implants in Poland?

Polish My Smile have over a decade’s experience providing satisfied customers with full smile makeovers and restorative dentistry by getting teeth implants in Krakow, Poland. The two main reasons people come to us are 1) it’s much cheaper to get dental treatments abroad, and 2) not all cosmetic and restorative dentistry is available on the NHS and for those who are eligible… getting an appointment and the treatment completed isn’t the fastest.

Our implantologists in Poland belong to the reputable International Congress of Oral Implantologists

For those who have to go private for dental procedures, travelling overseas is the only way to access cost-effective treatment. Depending on the extent of the work you need doing, getting it done in the UK could have costs so high you’d need to remortgage your home to afford it.

In our state-of-the-art clinic in Krakow, Poland, we have fully qualified, English speaking, experienced dentists (click here to view their certificates) with all the modern equipment necessary to provide excellent dental care to patients the world over.

Prices for dental work is significantly lower than the cost of British dental treatments, and it’s nothing to do with the standard of care, the experience of dentists, or fewer regulations. It’s all to do with the cost of living. Anywhere with a lower cost of living, will have lower prices across a variety of industries, including dentistry.

In regard to travel costs for the dental trip, we organize a free dental holiday package for our patients. A 3-course meal in a decent restaurant averages less than £15 per head.

So, not only does getting dental implants abroad work out cheaper, you can get a superb budget break away into the bargain. The City of Krakow has been described as one of Europe’s hidden gems with plenty to see and do.

Safeguards for dental tourism to Poland

Dentists in Poland are required to be registered with The Polish Chamber of Physicians and Dentists who regulate the dental industry. To maintain registration and continue to practice, dentists have to demonstrate they have up to date skills and knowledge every five years. In addition to being registered with the Polish Chamber of Physicians and Dentists, Dental Clinics are further regulated by the Ministry of Health. Our clients can be assured that our dentists are highly skilled, proficient and up to the job as well as operating in the clinically sterile environment you’d expect for any medical clinic.

The quality of teeth implants in Krakow

Being a dental clinic with patients travelling from overseas for treatment, we take your trust seriously and only use the highest quality and world-leading brands for our dental implants including Friadent, Mis and Alpha Bio. Knowing the high quality of materials used for dental implants, we can provide a full guarantee for up to 10 years.

Teeth implants in stages

1. Missing tooth problem
2. The whole is drilled and the implant inserted
3. Implanted area heal for 3-4 months time
4. The implant abutment is placed
5. The custom-made implant crown is placed over the abutment
6. The missing tooth is replaced by permanent option

Teeth implants essentially replace natural roots – they are titanium screws which are carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. This option is much more comfortable than conventional bridges and partial dentures – no wobbling teeth, and no slipping or movement, as is the case with partial or full dentures. Another benefit is that when teeth are missing the surrounding bone begins to shrink. Dental implants drastically slow this process down.

Duration of treatment

The implant process for routine cases normally consists of two stages:

1st stage: Tooth implant placement

After preparation of the implantation area, implants are inserted and the gum is stitched over them. Depending upon the complexity of your case, the operation might take anything from thirty minutes for a single implant, to several hours for complex bone grafting and multiple implant placements. Any stitches are removed a week to ten days later. You won’t be left toothless as we fit you with temporary teeth. During that time patients remain under our constant care.

2nd stage: The restorative phase

Usually three to nine months after the implants were first placed, you return to our clinic in Poland so that final teeth can be fitted. The reason why it takes from three to nine months between these two stages is that an integration period is needed for the implant to fully assimilate with the bone. During this time bone cells grow into the micro-pores created on the surface of the implant. It is a natural process and its duration varies between individuals.

All On 4 and All On 6 Dental Implants

Getting dental implants in Poland is a cost-effective way to replace lost teeth while restoring much of your natural bite power and saving thousands in the process in comparison to what your regular dentist in the UK would charge.

The problem is when you have multiple missing teeth; the costs continue to soar with every additional implant you need. Not only that but the longer there are gaps in your mouth, it can lead to bone loss which can rule out your eligibility to have dental implants as you need sufficient bone strength for the titanium posts to fuse with your natural bone tissue. Without sufficient bone tissue, there may not be enough anchorage, leaving you with limited options to replace missing teeth.

All on four dental implants with the implant overdenture

 All-on-4 dental implants are a workaround for some situations where you have multiple missing teeth that can be held in place with less dental implants. The all-on-4 implant is a process that uses 4 implants to keep either the implant overdenture in place (so it doesn’t move) or a complete bridge permanently attached to the implants.

All on four dental implants with permanently attached (screwed-in) metal-acrylic bridge
The all-on-4 is common, but there are also all-on-6 and all-on-8 dentalimplants. The number following the all-on-# refers to the number of implants used in the procedure. The higher the number of implants needed, the more bone strength you need to be a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Other implant option: All on 6
All-on-8 dental implants are generally recommended for those who have lost more than 80% of their natural teeth and have the bone strength to support eight dental implants. The longer your teeth have been missing, the less strength there is, and it could be that a bone graft procedure may be required to strengthen the bone tissue before implants can be used.

The all-on-4 dental implants may be able to replace an entire arch (upper or lower). The procedure involves getting four dental implants which are then used to support a complete bridge of a dozen to fourteen teeth that are permanently fixed in place using the implants to anchor them in place permanently.
How the implants are inserted is different to regular teeth implants as all-on-4 implants will have two horizontally placed implants with the other two implanted at a 45-degree angle as they’re designed to support the permanent fixing of a dental bridge.

In cases where a full arch of teeth (upper or lower) is required, fewer implants bring cost savings, while still having the advantage of the superior bite function you get with regular dental implants. However, unlike a regular dental bridge that may need replacing every ten to fifteen years, the dental implant bridge (which is in effect what the all-on-4, 6 and 8 implants are), these can last a lifetime with the right care.

As the bridge is supported by implants held in place with titanium posts, you get the strength of your natural teeth and the aesthetics too. They look and function like natural teeth, leaving you with a healthy smile that looks natural. Additionally, when used to replace partial missing teeth, the shade can be customised to blend with your original teeth.

Other implant option for the full mouth restoration - implants with bar

Alternative and cheaper option to All on 4 or All on 6 is the implant overdenture attached to the implants bar. A number of Implants may be used to secure a lower denture (in most cases 4 teeth implants). A hole is made in the jaw bone for each Implant. The Implant is positioned and a Healing Cap applied.The gum is replaced while the bone recovers. Access to the implant is made and the second part of the implant is attached.The bars are attached and tiny magnets in the denture then keep it securely in place.

Dental implant prices abroad and in Poland

If you are interested in travelling abroad for teeth implants, the logical question to address is what the dental implant prices in these locations are. We’ve researched leading international healthcare databases to bring you the lowest prices among the top ten international destinations for dental tourism.

According to, the top 10 international destinations for dental tourism are:

1. Mexico

2. Indonesia (Bali)

3. Spain

4. Turkey

5. Malaysia

6. Philippines

7. Poland

8. Costa Rica

9. Hungary

10. Thailand


A cross-check of those destinations with Medigo’s pricing comparison; we can arrange the pricing for dental implants from the lowest price to the highest….

1. Turkey comes in cheapest with starting prices at £385

Next is


2. Poland with an average price of £448


3. Mexico is £690
4. Hungary is £718
5. The Philippines are higher with a starting price of £800 per dental implant
6. Costa Rica has prices starting from £823
7. Indonesia (Bali) is £875
8. Spain costs around £876
9. Thailand prices start at £921
10. And Malaysia costs an average of £937

 These prices are only comparing the cost per implant, though. There are additional costs you need to factor in to the total cost of dental implants as the prices can soar quickly.

Additional costs include:

  • The price of a consultation with the dentist

  • The cost of dental impressions

  • X-Ray costs

  • CT scans if applicable

  • Any follow-up visits, including air and hotel fees

  • The price of each part of an implant – that’s the root, the abutment, and any crowns, bridges or dentures required

  • The entire cost of surgery, including the use of the theatre and anaesthetic required to have the work completed

  • The cost of any emergency work should anything go wrong that isn’t covered by the dental practitioners’ insurance or your travel insurance. Here we offer our patients a “peace of mind guarantee” with travel cost refund promise.

Factoring for every potential cost is impossible, which is why every dentist will list the price of dental implants with ‘from”. That’s just the price per implant, not additional work. For this reason, when you are price comparing dental implants abroad, you really need to be getting written quotations. This generally requires an upfront consultation.

Within some of the top European destinations, some dentists exquisitely cater to the international market, specifically targeting high dental cost countries, including the UK, France and the US, where the cost of cosmetic dental work is extremely high. In a lot of the Euro States such as Poland, it is possible to get a free consultation, but be sure to check the fine print as the fee may be deducted from the final bill. This can also be the case of additional work such as high-res CT scans which could be a deductible cost from the final bill if you book within a pre-set time frame from your initial consultation; otherwise the consult and x-ray fees could be payable.

To get the best price for dental implants abroad, it does pay to shop around; however, a good starting point is requesting an itemised quotation from any international dentist you’re considering. That way, you will know if travelling to Turkey for a dental implant costing £385 (average) per tooth with additional consultation fees and other medical fees, could prove to be more expensive than travelling to Poland for an All-on-4 (full arch dentures held in place by just two implants) for thousands of pounds less.

For dental implants under £500 per tooth, Turkey and Poland are the only destinations closest to the UK with reasonably priced airfare. Both are EU states so abide by high-quality control standards and are regulated with strict standards, so the quality of care is high. The experience is going to be different depending on which country you travel to, as these are two different cultures, although both are filled with heritage. In any case, travelling to have dental implants abroad is nearly always going to result in cost savings when compared to the high prices in Britain.

Questions on implants

Who is suitable for dental implants?

If you have good general health then dental implants will almost certainly work for you. However, to have implants inserted you also need to have healthy gums and sufficient thickness of the jawbone. Our dentist will assess that during an initial consultation. In some cases implants can only be placed after grafting the bone into the area first.

Does the dental implant treatment hurt?

Implantation surgery is painless and performed under local anesthesia. After the surgery, slight pain may be felt and a minor swelling may occur. For most patients, any of the simple painkillers you might take for a headache will be all that is needed for a few days. If you experience more discomfort than this, stronger medications can be prescribed.

Can implants always be used in case of missing teeth?

It depends on the state of the bone in your jaw. Your dentist will arrange for a number of special tests to assess the amount of bone still there (like CT scans and full panoramic x-rays). If there is not enough, or if it isn’t healthy enough, it may not be possible to place implants without grafting bone into the area first or doing a sinus lift procedure.

More advantages on teeth implants

When you find yourself in need of a replacement tooth or two, there are quite a few options you can choose with dental implants being right up there as the premier choice. There are quite a few advantages to dental implants in comparison to bridges and dentures. Also, implants done in our clinics in Poland are on average 2 times cheaper than in the UK’s clinics. Here’s why we believe dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth

Implants have a 90% to 95% success rate. 

Of all the procedures there are to replace missing teeth, implants have the highest success rate and the longest life span. A quality implant fitted by an experienced implantologist has the potential to last a lifetime. A dental bridge will need to be replaced every twenty to thirty years, and a denture, likely more frequently

Teeth implants keep your surrounding natural teeth health

Dental bridges are reliant on the support from your surrounding teeth. Additionally, preparation work is usually required for a bridge to be fitted, which involves filing down the surrounding teeth.

Eat what you want

Much of what you can eat depends on the strength of your teeth. If you lost a tooth to crunching a hard boiled sweet or something similar, you’ll know how important the strength of your teeth is. Dental implants are the strongest tooth replacement you’ll get that lets you eat what you want with minimal risk of damage.

Prevent premature ageing

Did you know that within a year of losing a tooth, you’ll also have up to 25% bone volume loss? Dental implants fuse with surrounding bone tissue helping to stave off further bone loss. The more the bone shrinks, the less dense your jawline becomes, which can lead to the jawline dropping, leaving you looking older than you are.

Easy maintenance

There are no special requirements to take care of implants. How they function and you how you clean them as well as the gum tissue is no different from regularly brushing your natural teeth. Brush as usual to remove plaque and tartar.

Dental implants look and act naturally

With a dental implant, because they are fixed to the bone, they are not going to move. Bridges and dentures can move on occasion, which can affect speech, not to mention an embarrassing moment if your denture suddenly fell out. As the implant is permanently fixed to the jawbone, there is no movement. You’ll be able to speak naturally, be understood, and since it looks the same as all your other teeth, nobody will be any the wiser when you smile.

Restore your bite force

After losing a tooth, you lose some of your natural bite force, meaning it’s going to be more difficult to chew through a well-done steak or similar tough foods. Dental implants are anchored with a titanium post to replace your tooth root, which gives you an increase in bite
force. No other dental procedure can replicate the replacement of your tooth root.

Prevents tooth misalignment

A missing tooth can cause adjacent teeth to shift position and fill the gaps. This leads to misalignment that’s clearly noticeable when you smile. Filling the gap with a dental implant will prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, leading to an impaired smile.

Dental implants feel natural

One of the things that are very noticeable with alternative methods to replacing missing teeth is you feel the difference. Dentures take some getting used to and can affect the taste of foods and the texture. With implants, there’s no difference to your taste buds so you can enjoy your favourite foods without experiencing any unusual tastes.
