If you’re in the market for an affordable, high-quality dental implant, you may be feeling a bit (or a lot) of frustration. Dental implants in the U.S. can cost upwards of $5,000 or more and this treatment isn’t usually covered by dental insurance. Luckily, if you live in near the Mexico border, you have another option for cheap dental implants. You can venture off to Mexico and be one of the thousands of Americans that participate in dental tourism every year. You may have doubts and fears about traveling across the Mexico border for affordable dental implants—you’re not alone, and it’s good to be curious about your dental health.
Here are some MYTHS about traveling abroad for low-cost implants.
1. The Dental Care Will Be Low Quality: Contrary to what some people believe, dentists in Mexico receive the same kind of schooling and professional training as dentists in the U.S. They also use similar equipment and anesthesia techniques. And, they have been pioneering dental implant techniques in Mexico since the 1990s. This means you can save money on affordable, high-quality dental implants.
2. There Are No Guarantees: All of the dentists we work with offer a full guarantee; some dentists guarantee their services up to four years. If for any reason you are unhappy with the procedure or treatment, or if you need an adjustment (this is common), just contact Beyond Borders Dental and we’ll arrange for a return visit to correct the concern.
3. It’s a Complicated Hassle: From the moment you contact Beyond Borders Dental to get a cheap dental implant, you won’t have to worry about anything. We will schedule your appointment and arrange transportation from Santa Fe or Albuquerque to Mexico and back. We’ll even send over your dental treatment plan and X-rays if you have them, but if not, you can still make an evaluation appointment.
4. It’s Hard to Find a Reputable Dentist in Mexico: This one is a partial myth. Because dental tourism is so popular in Mexico, there are a lot of “pop-up dentists” that have no business doing anything to your teeth. If you travel to Mexico on your own without any professional knowledge, it can be difficult to differentiate between these “dentists” and wanna-be dentists. However, if you choose to work with a dental tourism company that specializes in pairing American dental tourists with highly qualified dentists in Mexico, then you won’t have to worry about this. At Beyond Borders Dental, only thoroughly vetted and approved professional dentists are in our programs.
You may be thinking, “If all of these myths are, in fact, myths, then why is the cost of dental implants in Mexico so much lower than it is in other states?” That’s a good question. From the outside looking in, it may seem strange to see such a big price gap. But there are a lot of reasons why you can get cheap dental implants in Mexico.
First and foremost, the cost of living in Mexico is much lower than the cost of living in the states. The cost of all goods is adjusted accordingly. Also, dental school is subsidized in Mexico. When aspiring dentists go to school, they don’t have to take out student loans to pay for their tuition. When they graduate and start their own practices, they don’t have to charge high prices to pay off their debt. Even if they wanted to charge higher rates, they couldn’t; the Mexican government puts caps on the cost of medical and dental care.
