Dental implants are one of the costliest dental procedures in the United States and Canada. However, many cities and resorts in Mexico, such as Cabo San Lucas, can provide the exact same-quality treatments for a fraction of prices at home.
Cabo San Lucas can be a great option for North Americans seeking this treatment abroad. As dental implant procedures must normally be undertaken over a period of time, a convenient destination to travel to is a must. Only a few hours flight away, Cabo San Lucas, Cabos' location on the Baja California Sur Peninsula has established it as a popular holiday resort. Surrounded by stunning scenery and miles of Pacific Ocean it has everything a well-known resort has to offer for a relaxing pre-treatment holiday or post-treatment recuperation.
A modern destination, Cabo’s amenities and a warm welcome will ensure you have plenty to do between visits to your dentist.
Dental implant treatments are rarely carried out in one visit. The type of implant used and your own oral health will be determining factors on how many visits you will require, and how long the procedure takes to complete. For example, it is possible to have mini dental implants fixed in a day. Being able to return to your dentist for multiple visits is a consideration you will want to think about, and why Cabo’s location might be a good option.
We appreciate that having any dental treatment abroad might seem intimidating and we aim to alleviate some of the worries by ensuring our dentists are fully qualified for the treatments they undertake and offer safe, superior quality dentistry in modern and hygienic clinics.
All of our clinics have been personally vetted by us, and all of them provide warranties or guarantees on both their work and any lab work – something not usually offered in the US or Canada.
Conventional dental implants require two trips over 6-9 months. The first trip involves the tooth extraction, if needed. A bone graft may be performed at this stage. After this, the gums and bone are given up to six months to heal before the implant is placed. Your final trip involves having the crown fitted. With the latest in CAD/CAM technologies, each trip can be completed in a couple of days.
Immediate Placement Dental Implants are quicker as the tooth extraction and the implant is inserted on the same visit, so you will only need two visits.
Mini dental implants can be carried out in one trip and are used to support conventional dentures.
Your suitability for each type of implant procedure will be assessed by your dentist–usually copies of panoramic x-rays will be enough to evaluate your candidacy for particular implants.
After your treatment is complete, implants (unlike dentures) are maintenance free. Of course, you will want to follow a regimen of good dental care, including frequent brushing, flossing and annual check-ups.
In the United States, a dental implant with abutment and standard crown costs around $3,900; in Cabo San Lucas the equivalent dental implant is around $1,600.
Obviously, the savings are so great than even a return trip will be more cost-effective than one implant procedure at home.
