As the largest dental tourism booking platform, we here at Dental Departures are quite aware of just how expensive dental treatments are becoming in America, especially more complex mouth restoration procedures, like All-on-6 implants.

While the cost at home may well be prohibitive—forcing most people with missing teeth to opt for removable dentures (a much cheaper option)—heading south to Los Algodones on the Mexican border can save patients up to 70%.

And for a procedure that costs up to $30,000 back in the US, three-quarters off equates to well over ten grand saved—after factoring in two or three separate trips to the dentist in Mexico. 

Read on to learn more about undergoing All-on-6 treatment in Algodones and find out how to book with Dental Departures. 

Where Is Los Algodones?

Los Algodones' location right next to the US-Mexico Border makes this small town particularly convenient to reach for people based in Southern California or Arizona who can drive south, securely park their car on the US side and walk across to their appointment. 

As the northernmost city in Mexico, Algodones is 7 miles west of Yuma, which has an international airport, with most daily arrivals arriving from Phoenix and Dallas. 

What Are All-on-6 Dental Implants?

The term All-on-6 refers to a teeth replacement system that uses six dental implants per jaw. ‘All’ of the teeth can be replaced in either the upper or lower jaws—or both at the same time as part of a full mouth restoration

The first stage involves the surgical placement of the implants, which are normally made from titanium. While an immediate "healing" denture can be worn, patients will need to return to the same clinic after a period of four to six months to have their permanent replacement teeth attached, which are fixed onto a custom-made prosthesis or bridge.

If you need to have any extractions, these can be done at the same time or back home in advance.
