Thanks to this Ukrainian dental market is growing rapidly in recent years.
In 25 years a third of our citizens are missing one to three teeth. Some Koreans still use cheap implants from metal, which are subject to corrosion and will eventually require replacement with more modern designs. This is reported by experts of Pro-Consulting, informs Rus.Media.
In 2017 Ukraine imported more than 3 tons of dental implants. In the first half of 2018, the growth of imports of these products grew by 37.1% compared to the same period last year.
The main provider of dental implants in the domestic market are South Korea (41.5 per cent). The products of this country are of good quality at a relatively low price, which is very important for a poor Ukrainian consumers. The leading place in the structure of import of dental implants is also in Germany (18%), Switzerland (14.1 per cent) and France (5.8 percent).
Lowest prices on dental services in compliance with all international standards and attract to our country and foreign nationals. The difference in maintenance cost compared to Western Europe reaches 2-4 times, and the need for long-term rehabilitation are not available.
Therefore, about 18% of tourists from abroad come to Ukraine with the purpose of treatment of dental implants. Mostly citizens of Moldova, Germany, Italy, France, the UK, Denmark and countries of Central Asia.
In particular, thanks to foreigners the Ukrainian dental market is growing rapidly in recent years. Another driver of development is the increase in incomes in our country, in which the possibility of restoring the teeth is available to a wide range of Ukrainians.
