Dentures in Cali

The Ultimate Guide to Dentures in Cali

Last fact-checked: 22 February 2020

Looking for an exciting vacation destination where you can also treat yourself to new dentures? Head off to Colombia and get your dentures in Cali, the Salsa capital of the world.

Colombia is one of the must-see destinations of the moment. It has quickly turned its image around from that portrayed by the likes of Narcos and is now a welcoming destination for tourists of all ages. Cali also boasts excellent healthcare facilities with dental clinics offering low-cost, quality treatment. So, check out our dentists in Cali and start planning your trip.

Is Getting a New Denture in Cali a Good Option for Dental Tourists?

Absolutely. For some groups, like retirees, economizing has become almost second nature. If this means incorporating dental care into a vacation in order to save a substantial amount of money, then it makes sense.

However, it normally isn’t quite so cost-effective if you have to make two separate trips, which may be required for certain dental treatments, such as getting new dentures made and fitted. This is something you can plan around if your main objective is to save money by going to Cali.

If you already wear dentures and just want to replace them without any more teeth being pulled, then you will be able to get your new dentures in just one trip. If you need more teeth extracted once you are in Cali, then the denture you will be given after the extractions is a temporary, healing denture. It is lighter than a normal denture, allowing your gums to heal. It means that you will need to go back to get your permanent dentures at some time in the future (usually a minimum of three months). Some people, however, wear their temporaries considerably longer.

What About the Quality? Can I Rely on the Dentists in Cali?

The quality of dental care in Colombia is high for dental tourists: facilities are modern and equipped with the same state-of-the-art technologies you’ll find in dental clinics at home. The same branded materials available worldwide are also available in Colombia; globalization also means that dentist training throughout the word is similar at the best clinics anywhere; internationally-recognized standards and procedures are becoming the norm wherever you are receiving treatment.

It’s always worth doing your own homework and researching each potential clinic and dentist thoroughly—as you want to be confident in their abilities. That said, it’s not always easy to find reliable information about dental clinics overseas, which is why Dental Departures has already carried out the research.

We perform a number of checks on all of the dental providers listed on our website, including legal and criminal records, as well as dentist qualifications and professional memberships. We also perform onsite visits and publish authentic patient reviews.

If we’re not happy about any aspect of the information we find, you won’t see the clinic/dentist listed on our website. So, you can choose and book an appointment in confidence with any of the dentists listed on our website.

What Type of Dentures Will I Need?

A full denture is required if you don’t have any teeth in either your upper or lower jaw.

● If you have lost some teeth, then you will need a partial denture.

● If you have just had extractions, you will need a healing denture before a permanent one can be fitted (minimum of three months healing time).

What Is the Procedure for Dentures? How Long Will it Take?

It usually takes up to a week to receive your new dentures, and you will need to visit the dentist two or three times during your trip. The first visit entails an examination and diagnostic tests, such as x-rays. Impressions of your mouth are taken and sent to the laboratory where your new dentures are made. You will then be free to enjoy the sights of Cali until your next appointment (when you will have your new dentures fitted). Your dentist will make any minor adjustments and that should be it.

Rather than rush home immediately, it’s a good idea to stay around for a day or two after your fitting just in case any further adjustments are required. This could be a good chance to squeeze in some last-minute sightseeing in Cali as well!

Why Else Should I Choose Cali for Dentures?

Colombia has managed to shake off its image as a no-go country and is now being dubbed one of the world’s must-visit destinations by top travel sites. Cali is a lively city and is obviously a good choice if you are fond of Salsa dancing (as Salsa is said to have originated here). Aside from strutting your stuff on the dancefloor, there are some lovely historic buildings and monuments worth visiting, especially the neoclassical San Pedro Cathedral, the Iglesia de San Francisco for its painted ceilings and the city’s oldest church, La Merced.

The old neighborhood of San Antonio also proves particularly popular with visitors. Its old colonial houses were once home to musicians, writers and artists and it still retains its distinctly bohemian feel. Street musicians, hip cafes and quaint antique stores provide plenty of things to see on a leisurely stroll around this part of the city. To sample some of Cali’s foodie delights, we recommend a visit to in Granada, the city’s gastro-zone.

Cali also boasts a zoo, said to be one of the finest in Colombia; Gato de Tejada, an unusual cat sculpture park; and, perched atop the main hill overlooking the city, the giant Cristo Rey—a statue of Jesus that draws in tourists and day-trippers of all faiths.
