An important issue about dental tourism to Budapest

How long do you need to be away from home in the case of dental treatment in Budapest?

Usually patients of dental tourism worry about the period and the number of dental visits to Budapest before treatment which is no problem at all. They also want to know all possibilities about accommodation, transfers and getting around in Budapest as well. Thanks to loads of low-cost flight companies you can travel cheap to Hungary. Hotels, public transport are cheap and well managed in Budapest as well, so you really have nothing to worry about.

How long should dental tourism patients stay in Budapest?

The length and number of visits depend on the specific dental treatment you get.

Dental treatments that take a single visit to Budapest

If one needs simple dental treatments such as tooth extractions, teeth whitening, fillings, inlays / onlays, crowns and root canals, it is enough to come to Budapest for a 3-6 day visit. If you are too busy to spend six days in a row in Budapest, you can divide it into two 2-6 visits with a minimum gap of three days in between visits.

If you need dentures, you have to stay in Budapest for 8-12 days in a row, or you can divide it into two tours of 5-6 days.

Dental treatments that take several visits to Budapest

If the patient requires a complex dental care, such as sinus lift, bone grafting and dental implants, you will need several visits according to the facilities of the chosen dental clinic in Budapest.

The first visit takes 3-4 days. In many cases sinus lift and bone grafting is performed right before the implants will be placed in the jaw. Finally you get a laser therapy for faster healing. In some cases, you may need a healing time of three-six months before your implants are placed after sinus lift and bone grafting. Your dentist will tell you how many visits and how long healing time are needed for this treatment, based on a panoramic x-ray and a 3D Scan. Ten days later stitches can be removed but this treatment is not performed in the clinic in Budapest because any dentist can do it in your own country almost for free of charge.

At the second visit after 3-6 months healing time, your dentist will place the healing screws and abutments in the dental implant and finally places crowns on your implants at the Budapest clinic. In some cases a two week healing period is needed in between the placement of healing screws and abutments.

Healing and treatment periods are only for information

As per a panoramic x-ray and a 3D Scan we prepare a quotation for all dental tourism patients before traveling to Budapest. We specify how long each visit will be in Budapest and how many times the patient must come to Hungary for dental treatment.

After a while this cross the border dental industry began to grow as good news spread about the high quality and low cost of dental treatment in Hungary. First patients in the 1980s came from all over Austria and then from german speaking countries. As dental prices are very high in all over western Europe French and English speaking patients come by the thousands annually for treatment to Budapest by the 2000s. Dental patients from abroad were treated at the beginning in one dental chair surgeries but as demand grew dental clinics grew as well.
