You take a bite into your steak dinner and a sharp pain shoots down into your tooth. You drink a sip of coffee and your tooth begins to throb. You wake up in the middle of the night to an aching sensation in your mouth. These are all signs that you may need a root canal.
No one looks forward to going to the dentist, especially for a root canal. The sound of the drill, the blinding lights, the pain, and oh perhaps the worst of all, the expensive bill handed to you after treatment. Let’s face it, going to the dentist in Albuquerque to treat your root canal is no fun and it’s not cheap. Yet you don’t want to continue to live with mouth pain so how can you find a root canal that is affordable?
Are there dentists in Albuquerque that offer cheap root canals? Well, not exactly. The average root canal in Albuquerque cost a whooping $1,168! What?!? That’s not cheap. But maybe you have dental insurance so you’ve got some coverage right? Let’s say you have 50% coverage which is about the average for dental insurance. That means you are going to pay $584 out of pocket after you’ve met your deductible which typically costs a few hundred dollars.
Of course, you will have to pay a few hundred for the dental exam, x-rays, and whatever else the dentist in Albuquerque adds to your bill so your bill could very well be $1,000 when it’s all said and done. That’s not cheap! So what do you need if you need a root canal but can’t afford the prices in Albuquerque?
Many residents of Albuquerque travel south to Mexico for more affordable root canals. It’s only a four hour drive and it’s easy to cross the border. It’s safe too, in fact people from all over New Mexico go to Palomas for cheap dental work like root canals. Why? Because it’s not just cheap, it’s good!
Just how good is the dental care in Mexico? Well about 90% of Americans rate the dental care they’ve received in Mexico as good or excellent. This figure was taken from a recent survey by Families U.S.A., a Washington-based advocacy group. That’s actually better than the results of American dentists done in the same survey. Yes it’s true, you can get pain-free, quality, and best of all, cheap dental care from experienced and qualified dentists in Mexico.
Dentists in Mexico offer the same procedures that are available in the US. This means you can save not only root canals but also dental crowns, implants, dentures, veneers, cosmetic dental work, and more. So just how much cheaper are root canals in Mexico compared to root canals in Albuquerque? Well on average, a root canal in Mexico cost just $330 while as mentioned before, a root canal in Albuquerque runs about $1,168. That’s a lot more affordable!
