5 Reasons to Consider Full-Arch Dental Implants in Los Algodones


Get a free quote

Full-arch dental implants, such as the All-on-4® treatment concept by Nobel Biocare, are strategically placed in the lower, upper or both jaws, depending on the location of the missing teeth, to provide a strong and secure base that eventually holds an entire arch of replacement teeth.

This modern dental treatment is on the expensive side, being one of the costliest procedures in the US and Canada. However, by heading to Los Algodones in Mexico, it's possible to save in the region of 70%, shaving well over $10,000 off the total cost. 

And with Dental Departures, you never have to settle for inferior quality - as we only list the very best specialists in the region with the right credentials to carry out implant surgery. 

If you're still wondering whether traveling across the border for a dental procedure is worth your while, here’s a look at 5 reasons to consider full-arch implants in Los Algodones:

#1 Close Proximity

Los Algodones, also known as Molar City, is located so close to the US-Mexico border (in both Southern California and Arizona) that you can actually walk across to your appointment. Hence, traveling to and from Los Algodones is not an issue if you are looking for affordable full-mouth implants.

For those thinking about coming from further afield, nearby Yuma in Arizona (30 minutes drive) has an international airport connecting this part of the country with other major US cities. 

# 2 The Low Cost

In addition to the easy accessibility, the cost of treatment in Molar City is substantially less than back home.

The average cost of the treatment in the US and Canada is USD $26,000 / CAD $33,431. In comparison, you can expect to pay around USD $10,000 / CAD $12,706 in Los Algodones.

[Please note: these are approximate prices based on average figures at the time of writing. Please check our individual clinic listings for up-to-date prices.]
