A visit to the dentist is usually a scary thought for most of us. You’ll be surprised at the number of adults that are scared of visiting a dentist. According to research an estimated four in every five adults fear dental treatment, and only 20 percent adults go for a dental check-up twice a year as advised. Taking care of your teeth is very important because unhealthy gums cause bacteria that if left untreated could lead to serious conditions such as heart attacks, stroke and brain damage.
If you are adventurous, you can now combine cosmetic dental treatment with a trip abroad to either Thailand, India or Indonesia thanks to the rising popularity of medical tourism packages. Dental tourism involves individuals seeking dental care outside of their local healthcare systems and may be accompanied by a vacation abroad. This is a growing phenomenon and most Australians are now embracing it and actually finding it to be a better medical option because not only is it cheaper but you get to enjoy a vacation as well.
