I have a choice of a bridge (1200) which will last 8-10 years and I will then also lose the healthy tooth next to it and will end up with 2 spaces or another implant at the cost of 2 grand which I dont have.

Anyone gone abroad to have implant done? I realise I'd have to go back for follow ups there - is this doable with only having school holidays off?

Oooh, I hope someone answers this, I have been contemplating going to Hungary (brilliant dentists apparently) for an implant. I lost the tooth years ago but now my other teeth are starting to fall into the gap. I think I have some serious tooth work coming sad.

There was an article in teh readers digest in the waiting room which said Hungary was the place to go.

hercules - I have been looking at this website (mainly for the hamdsome dentist grin but would love to get a recommendation.

Wilbur - I've done a bit more research. I think it's probably worth it for extensive work and if you are able to come and go at least twice for an implant and stay there for a few days each time.
In my case with working full time and 2 children I'm not sure for one tooth it's worth the money I would save.

Still undecided about whether to get bridge or implant.

Does anyone know if it's okay to leave a space for a few months before putting somethign htere?

I've just had a phone call from a company who arrange it and they said for one implant it wouldnt be worth going abroad by the time you factor in two lots of fares and hotel fees.

I need a couple of broken fillings replaced as well, and I would love to have some of my old amalgam ones changed to white. Oh and a teeth whitening, would be fab too. Maybe they could just knock me out cold, do it all I will wake up looking like a film star. grin
