Visit a clinic for new dentures in Nuevo Progreso with Dental Departures and realize substantial savings of around 70%.
Warm weather, good shopping and inexpensive prices–all conveniently located just over the US border in Nuevo Progreso. US and Canadians have been attracted here for many years, taking advantage of lower-priced medical and dental care. For retirees, the prices are particularly attractive for dentures, and with the lower cost of living, it makes a nice getaway from the winter weather at home.
Plenty of day-trippers frequently take a walk over International Bridge, leaving the cars on the Texas side so they can stroll at a leisurely pace and pick up local handicrafts, such as leather goods, pottery and jewelry.
Accessibility is one of the main reasons why more and more North Americans are coming to Nuevo Progreso for their dental care. Parking as abundant for day-trippers who want to leave their car in Texas, and plenty of accommodation is available for those wanting to stay a little longer, as well as a few decent RV parks close by.
Getting your dentures in Nuevo Progreso couldn’t be simpler with Dental Departures. Although it's possible to stumble across clinics simply by turning up and walking around the town, you can never be certain that that one you have randomly chosen will actually provide a good service, nor be fully aware of the dentists' qualifications and licenses.
By booking through Dental Departures, you are essentially guaranteeing an appointment with a dentist who has been quality-checked. This way, you can be certain their qualifications, expertise and clinic facilities are of a good standard.
Of course, the prices for dentures are so much less expensive than they are at home. This doesn’t mean they are sub-standard or use inferior grade materials—it is just that your Mexico dentist's overheads are a lot lower than they are for US dentists because the cost of living is cheaper.
It will only take a few days for your new dentures to be made, ready and fitted. However, if you have extractions or have recently had surgery, you will have to wait a few months for your gums to heal before the process for getting your new permanent dentures can begin. During this time, you will usually be given a ‘healing denture’ which is non-permanent and fitted immediately after your extractions or surgery. These dentures are very light and allow the gums to heal underneath.
Dentures with Porcelain Teeth vs Dentures with Acrylic Teeth: Once the gums have healed, permanent dentures can be made and fitted. The material you choose for your dentures will ultimately be your decision - but your dentist will help you decide.
It's worth to note that acrylic dentures are the least expensive, light and generally more comfortable to wear but do not have the longevity of porcelain. Porcelain dentures have a very natural appearance but they are heavier than acrylic and may place more stress on your gums and bones.
A full acrylic denture will set you back around $1,800 in the US; you can expect to pay in the region of $600 in Nuevo Progreso for the same. That's a two-thirds off!
Savings on dentures in Nuevo Progreso are substantial and even upgrading to a better quality material will still cost far less than the cheapest denture at home. The main benefit of this is that it should last you longer, proving to be even more economical.
