Fillings in Agua Prieta

The Ultimate Guide to Fillings in Agua Prieta

Do you want to save between 70 and 80% on the cost of your dental fillings? Book an appointment with Dental Departures for dental fillings in Agua Prieta and get these incredible savings compared to prices at home.

Many patients requiring dental fillings are now visiting Mexican border towns such as Agua Prieta to have their general dental needs seen to because the prices are so much more affordable.

For travelers from the United States and Canada Agua Prieta is well-located and easy to travel to from major roads in Arizona. Historically, it has always been a busy destination as the border crossing between here and Douglas in the United States has allowed people to easily travel over for the excellent shopping facilities. During the winter months snowbirds and retirees are frequent visitors, drawn by the warm weather, hospitable locals and the chance to take in some of the surrounding desert scenery.

Why have Dental Fillings in Agua Prieta?

Although dental fillings are not something you would specifically plan a vacation for, in the same way as you would for major or expensive dental procedures, if you are already scheduling a trip to the area it is worth attending to some straightforward dental upkeep while you are here. Not only will it save you some money in the short-term, but could save you substantially more in the long-term. Prevention is much better than cure and keeping on top of your dental hygiene maintenance will help to safeguard your overall dental health.

One of the problems of visiting a dentist abroad, however, is finding one you know is reliable and who you can trust. This is where we can help as our dentists in Agua Prieta have been pre-screened and will provide you with good quality dental treatment equivalent to what you would receive at home.

You can also expect that the facilities will be just as good too. Our dental clinics in Mexico have excellent standards across the board with contemporary clinic buildings, excellent hygiene standards and the latest cutting-edge technologies.

How long do Dental Fillings take in Agua Prieta?

The procedure doesn’t take long and most can be done in under an hour. However, if you have a tooth with large areas of decay it may take considerably longer.

The treatment will involve your dentist removing the areas of decay from your tooth with a drill – after your mouth has been anesthetised with a local anesthetic. The remaining cavity is thoroughly cleaned and packed with filling material. The filling is then adjusted to the correct size and shape once it has hardened – usually after a few minutes.

Your dentist will discuss with you which material you want as fillings can be amalgam, composite, resin, porcelain and gold. Some materials are extremely hard-wearing and can last up to 15 years, whereas others last between 5 and 7.

What is the cost comparison of Dental Fillings in Agua Prieta to the US and Canada?

The cost depends largely on the filling material and how large your filling is. In the United States they are around $155 per tooth but start from as little as $30 in Agua Prieta.

For dental patients living in Arizona especially, a trip to Agua Prieta is definitely worth considering for a dental filling. However, for patients living further afield it is still worth the trip if you need more than one, or if you are thinking of changing  your amalgam fillings for health reasons.
