The cost of dental care in countries such as the USA, Australia, or New Zealand sometimes hinders people from getting an important treatment like tooth restoration. Here’s the good news: Dental Departures can help you find the most affordable full-arch dental implant at a destination near you. Dentists throughout the world –  whether in Mexican cities or destinations in Thailand – provide top quality mouth restorations at 30-70% savings over prices in the USA or Australia.

What is the All-on-4® treatment concept?

As the name suggests, this innovative procedure, available only through authorized Nobel Biocare clinics, replaces all upper or lower teeth with just four implants. This treatment involves the placement of implants into the jawbone, then placing temporary teeth (crowns) on top. After a healing period of around three to six months, your dentist will replace the temporary crowns with permanent fittings. This treatment is a stable replacement for missing teeth, saving time and money. This technique also eliminates the need for bone grafts often required to restore bone loss in patients who have lost teeth through advanced periodontal disease.

What Is the Price in Thailand and Mexico?

In Thailand, the All-on-4® treatment concept costs approximately USD $11,297.00 (AUD $14,806.00;
NZD $15,752.00; CAD $14,946.00; UK £9,231.00) compared to the US, which is around USD $26,000 (AUD $34,077.00; NZD $36,254.00; CAD $34,399.00; UK £21,246.00).

In Mexico, the prices are also much lower: around USD $12,400.00 (CAD $16,406.00; AUD $16,252.00; NZD $17,290.00; UK £10,133.00) compared to the price in US: around USD $26,000.00 (CAD $34,399.00; AUD $34,077.00; NZD $36,254.00; UK 21,246.00).

Countries like Thailand and Mexico offer affordable treatment options, where you’ll get your smile back, receive superb service from certified dentists, and enjoy a relaxing holiday!

A Note on Dental Tourism

Dental tourism, also known as dental travel or dental holidays, is a subgroup of medical tourism, which involves people seeking care outside their in-county healthcare provider and often accompanied by a vacation. Every year, millions of Americans, Australians, and Europeans travel for a wide array of dental treatments, allowing them to receive high-quality care at lower prices. It’s a flourishing industry in countries like Thailand and Mexico. 

Why is Dental Tourism Popular in Thailand and Mexico?

Thailand and Mexico are not only known as leisure travel destinations, but also for dental tourism. Thailand’s tropical climate, white sandy beaches, delectable food, and World Heritage sites attract millions of tourists from all over the globe. Airline companies regularly offer budget fares to this Asian country, and affordable accommodations are plentiful.

Mexico is favored by visitors from the US and Canada because of its close geographic proximity, unique culture, beach resorts, and temperate climate - perfect for North American snowbirds, retirees, and day-trippers.

Clinics in Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, and other popular Thai cities offer superb dental service at lower prices. Similarly, Mexican clinics provide exceptional oral care at reasonable prices - generally a 40-60% savings over procedures in the USA or Canada.

Dental Departures performs quality checks on clinics, including on-site visits, verification of dentist qualifications, and professional memberships. Many dentists are members of the International Congress of Implantologists (ICOI) and the American Dental Association (ADA), and comply with global standards to ensure the safety of patients.
