What are the documents required for dental implants?
Are dental implants are expensive?
The cost of dental implants treatment varies based on location and the material. For example, you can spend about £2,000 for this treatment in the UK and this cost would be in the region of £400 in Iran. This treatment could be perceived as a luxury treatment, however, the amount you are investing in is worthwhile considering the level of improvement in lifestyle, confidence and general health.
How many dental implants are placed by MedoBay partners?
The dental clinics selected by MedoBay in Iran have on average placed 1200-1500 dental implants annually. We are only selecting those clinics who have track records of successful treatments.
How painful is the process of dental implants?
A general concern for most of the patients is the pain. Like most of the dental procedures, in most of the cases, dental implants are placed using a local anaesthetic. The initial anaesthetic injection could sting a bit, but afterwards, the mouth would become numb, and the patients will feel minimal, and it makes the surgery very painless.
The process of placing dental implants involve drilling the jawbone. Hence patients might feel the vibration or pressing during this time, and the dentist will always make sure the patient’s mouth is completely numb before and during the process. In some more complicated cases, sedation might be used which is different from general anaesthetics.
This is one of the most common concerns for people thinking about having an implant. When carried out by an experienced clinician, most dental implants are very straightforward to place, taking only about ten to fifteen minutes to complete the surgical part of the treatment. However, more complex cases may take longer.
In most cases, implants are placed within fifteen minutes so it will be quite a short process, and the pain is entirely under control.
Will I need bone grafting?
In some cases that jawbone has been deteriorated which make it less suitable for hosting dental implants, bone grafting technique might be used. Bone grafts are usually chosen case by case for each patient. The material varies and could be a synthetic or special material made in the laboratory.
What would you do with a gap left as the result of teeth extraction?
Often patients ask whether they can have instant implants. This means that immediately after extracting a tooth placing an implant in the same place. Yes, it is possible to have instant implants and it’s a decision of specialist to assess it. However, sometimes it’s necessary to leave the gap for healing purposes. There are reasons for delaying as it helps the area to heal and make sure infections are well treated before placing an implant, so the success rate will be higher.
Should I extract the teeth before visiting your specialist?
No, we can extract the teeth for you and start your treatments. As we’d like to assess the area to identify the best treatment plan for your teeth. However, if you are in pain you can remove the teeth before visiting our consultants.
Would I be a good candidate if I had lost my teeth for a longtime?
In most cases, you can have dental implants placed unless the bone conditions are in a situation that the specialist considers contrarily. This is very rare and in most cases, our experienced dental implant specialists can propose a treatment plan for you. Nevertheless, it’s advised to use our free online consultation session before travelling.
Do you replace all teeth with implants?
Yes, you can but our highly experienced specialist need to assess you. We can offer a variety of options and treatment plans specifically tailored to your needs. This could be implanting for teeth and using the bridging technique, the choice is dependent on the conditions of your teeth and jawbone.

How to chose a surgeon for hair transplant?
This is a one million dollars question? No. This is like other operations, and what matters the most is the surgeon skills and a number of successful hair transplant operations. There are other factors to consider like the team helping the main surgeon. Yes, that’s true, as surgery sometimes could be perceived as a production and surgeons might try to streamline it by supervising the operation rather than actually participating in it. Always check who is designing the hair layout, who is extracting the hair strip in case of FUT, as the skills matter later on when the scars remain.
At MedoBay we vet and screen surgeons who have carried out more 1000 hair transplant procedures annually, and of course with successful results. Like any industry, everyone has its own recommendations and success stories, but in reality, you should be doing it and when you are doing it abroad it becomes more difficult, that’s the reason we have introduced our medical advisory board who visits the surgeries and do due diligence behalf you. Yes, your head and your look are very important that you can only trust a few of them, and there are many factors to consider during this decision making process.
There are organisations such as Internation Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons, website: IAHRS.org, but by your first visit, you’ll realise that it’s mostly a handful surgeon in US or India.
Should I go for FUT or FIT?
There are factors to consider when deciding between Hair Transplant FUT and FIT. First of all, FUT involved removing a hair strip from the back of your head, the scar after the procedure might be visible if you tend to have short hair. Depending on the skills of your surgeon to suture the tissues together artfully to have a minimal scar marks after the procedure, you might want to go for FIT, if you like to shave your head or have a very short haircut. Sometimes hair transplant surgeons might choose to have a combination of both hair transplant techniques involve removing a hair strip and also extracting hair follicles individually. The suitability of FIT also depends on your hair graft types as curly and spinning hair grafts make it difficult for the dissection process.
Costwise, the FUT hair transplant is usually slightly less expensive compared to FIT. In general, patients aged between 24 and 28 tend to go for FIT as they might like to shave their head. Some races like Africans might want to have their head shaved, and they look good as well, so FIT is a good option. Additionally, patients who had undergone a FUT procedure would prefer to go with the FIT method as it leaves less scar marks on the backside of the head. In some cases, patients who like to hide the scar with new planted hair would go with the FIT hair transplant method as well.
Is it true that FUT results are better compared to FUE?
It is a general question usually asked, but the answer depends on each individual circumstances.
One important aspect of FUT hair transplant is the donor area and harvesting of hair grafts from the donor area. Experience is the most factor with these type of plastic and cosmetic surgeries, and the result matter.
With FUT hair transplant method the surgeon would be able to see the graft deep into the skin and hence better control during the harvesting process.
