Everything You Need to Know About Getting an Affordable Implants Near the U.S. Border

You can Get Affordable Implants Near the Mexico Border

There are many things that the sunny beauty of the southern U.S. border can fix. But, unfortunately, a tooth in desperate need of a dental implant isn’t one of them. So, if you’re currently searching for a dentist who can provide you with affordable, high-quality dental implants near the U.S. border, here are some things you’ll want to know about the procedure.

More on Dental Implants

A dental implant being placed into the mouth of someone.

1. High-quality dental implants are usually made of titanium.

2. Your implant cannot get a cavity, but it’s still important to care for it just as you would your other teeth.

3. A dental implant replaces a lost tooth and its root.

4. If you need an implant and don’t get one, you can suffer consequences like poor digestion, jaw pain and stiffness, and the weakening of the surrounding teeth.

5. Dental implants in the U.S. are not cheap! In fact, the average cost is between $3,000-$5,000. This amount will be lower if you have insurance, but most insurance companies don’t even cover dental implants. This means your implants will be anything but affordable.

6. After getting a dental implant, it’s common to experience some swelling around the implant for several days. This is because the gums are still irritated from the surgery.

7. You’ll likely experience tenderness in the gums for 2-6 days as your mouth gets used to the new foreign body.

8. For two weeks after an implant is placed, it is advised that you rinse with salt water every 4-6 hours.

9. While you’re healing, you should avoid alcohol and tobacco.

10. With modern medicine and advanced dental technologies, dental implants are almost painless. But you may experience some mild pain, which can be managed with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications.

Other Options

If you’re currently looking for a low-cost dental implant in the U.S., you may have sought some local options. But did you know that you have a choice many Americans do not? For less expensive dental implants, you can cross the border to Juarez, Los Algodones, Mexicali, and Tijuana. Americans have been flocking to Mexico for affordable dental implants for decades. The practice has become so common that there’s a name for it – Dental Tourism.

U.S. residents can save a lot of money by getting discount dental implants in Mexico. For example, the same dental implant costs $3,000-$5,000 in the U.S. and starts as low as $1,800 in Mexico. In addition, dental tourists receive the same high-quality care as they would from a U.S.-based dentist, and Mexican dentists use the same kind of implant parts and material.

The reason why dental implants are cheaper in Mexico compared to U.S. prices has nothing to do with the service or quality and how Mexico manages dental care. First, the Mexican government caps the cost of dental and medical care. They can do this in good conscience because dentists don’t have to pay large sums of money to go to medical school; the Mexican government subsidizes the cost of their education. These realities, along with the overall lower cost of living in the country, mean you save money across the board on medical and dental care.

    • Hi Charlisa,

      Carecredit, is an American lending company and can not be used for service providers outside United States, including Mexico.

  1. Do you need a passport? And how many visits does it take? I’m needing a full upper and lower. Is there $1800 for one tooth out a full upper or lower?

    • Hi Laura,

      We can’t speak for all U.S./Mexico borders, nor can we advise anyone on what documents are required to cross international borders. What we tell you is that people have been crossing the border back into the U.S. with a valid driver’s license and a copy of your birth certificate at the El Paso, Texas border. If you plan to our Cozumel clinic, that’s an international flight and a passport is necessary.

      If you have more questions or would like to talk with us, please call our office at (505) 738-7770 or send us an email at [email protected].
