Mexicali is becoming a major player in medical and dental tourism, so where better to go for your dentures? A conveniently placed city, just over the US border with Calexico in California, snowbirds, retirees, day-trippers and vacationers have been visiting for many years – attracted by its climate, great shopping, restaurants and other engaging amenities.
Either driving, walking over the border, or flying into one of two international airports nearby, Mexicali offers affordability and choice – whether you are choosing dentists, hotels or cuisine. For patients coming here for dental work it is an excellent base from which to visit other nearby attractions, such as San Felipe or Guadalupe Canyon – or to play a round of golf – while waiting for the lab to finish your dentures.
Missing teeth are more than an inconvenience. They can affect your whole outlook, making you feel embarrassed and self-conscious. Whether you are replacing one or two teeth, or a whole lot more, traveling to Mexicali for your dentures is affordable and convenient – and driving over the border is now a whole lot quicker with the medical tourism lane.
This does not mean that the dentures you receive in Mexicali will be inferior in any way to dentures you would receive at home. Dentists here use good quality materials – the same as they do at home, but dental treatment is far cheaper here simply because overheads and the overall cost-of-living is less.
You can also be certain that you will receive expert dental care from a quality-checked dentist with Dental Departures stringent background checks. We visit all our clinics to check on their hygiene and safety standards, as well as confirming our dentists’ qualifications and experience. The majority of our dentists in Mexicali are highly experienced, with many providing overseas patients with dental treatment on a regular basis.
Dentures can be made in only a few days. However, if you have recently had surgery or extractions they cannot be fitted until the gums have healed.
Non-permanent, sometimes called ‘healing dentures’ are fitted immediately after surgery or extractions. Lighter than permanent dentures, they allow the gums to heal. This will usually be for a few months, but they can be worn for much longer. After your permanent dentures have been fitted you may have to have them adjusted periodically to ensure their fit.
The choice of material for your dentures is a matter of personal choice which your dentist will discuss with you.
Porcelain dentures are the longer-lasting, and compared to acrylic have a more natural appearance. However, they tend to place more stress on bones and gums simply because they are heavier. Acrylic dentures are generally more comfortable to wear because they are lighter.
A full acrylic denture in the United States will cost approximately $1,800, whereas in Mexicali it will cost around $300. A porcelain denture will set you back about $2,200 in the US, but only $500 in Mexicali.
Traveling to Mexicali for your dentures is a cost-effective solution for the problem of tooth loss, enabling you to have the best quality materials and the cost still being considerably less than the cheapest materials at home.
