Frequently Asked Questions

In the past years we have recieved numerous questions from our dental patients who were travelling from abroad. We have decided to make a page of their frequent questions and our answers available for our visitors in hope you might have similar questions. If you cannot find answers to the questions you might have please feel free to send us an enquiry and we will be pleased to answer in full.

Why are the treatments so affordable?

Even though Hungary joined the EU in 2003 the cost of living has remained much lower than in other EU countries which means that you benefit from significant lower costs.

How long do I have to stay in Budapest?

From our experience one week is normally more than enough for most crown and bridge work. Implants require a 2-3 days stay with a return visit of 6 days after about 3-6 months. Some treatments may require more time, in which case the client is recommended to stay for about 10 days. Such treatments are: fixed-detachable case and constructing the implants (including second operation and construction) but that is usually necessary only for the second treatment in Hungary.

How can I travel to Budapest?

It matters where you will be travelling from, mostly our patients come to Budapest via Plane. We cannot provide flight booking as we leave that to you, but to help you we provide links to flight companies who offer low cost tickets that will fit your convenience.

Do dentists speak other foreign languages at the clinic?

Our dentists speak several languages in a high standard, which include English, German, Dutch and French.

How can I get to the hotel and surgery from the airport?

A Budapest Dental Solutions representative will meet you at the airport on your arrival and provide personal transport between the airport, hotel and clinic for the duration of your visist.

If I want to go ahead with treatment how much notice do I need to give?

As much as you can but we like one week to organise appointments, accommodation. On the other hand the earlier you book your flight at certain airlines, the cheaper it will cost.

What kind of materials do dental clinics use in Hungary?

In Hungary dental clinics use the same materials as in Western Europe, Japan and the USA.

What happens if I'm allergic to certain kinds of metal?
