Dental Tourism Prices


Have you looked at the cost of medical and dental services recently in the United States? Services often deemed "minor" do not come with minor price tags. Due to varying factors, medical and dental services are now almost exclusively for the wealthy, pricing all sorts of lower and middle-class citizens out of receiving desirable assistance. While breaking down medical costs can include hundreds of different procedures, it is easier to outline the difference in price for dental procedures in the United States against other locations worldwide, including Mexico. 

Dental Tourism

The phrases "medical tourism" and "dental tourism" have become increasingly popular due to the growing cost of procedures and surgeries in the United States. Essentially, it references traveling to another country for medical services, not necessarily for vacation purposes. Traveling to this alternative location, in addition to paying for the dental procedures, costs far less. So, instead of traveling for a beach or tropical drinks, you travel for cheap root canals and crowns. Of course, it is still possible in Mexico to have a tropical setting, which makes recovering (when necessary) from Mexican dental procedures much more spectacular. 

Comparing Costs

Comparing the most common dental procedures in the United States against services in Mexican dental clinics can be eye-opening. Now, if you are interested in braces, you'll need to discuss this with the Mexican orthodontist, and you'll likely want to live near a border town, as continual check-ups are required. However, looking at the price points for one-time procedures is easy. 

You can expect to pay around $10,000 for five ceramic crowns in the United States. However, in Mexican dental clinics (and even locations in Asia, if you are looking for a further out destination), you can expect to pay around $2,250. Root canal treatments are other standard procedures. Depending on where you go in the U.S. and the tooth in question, you may pay $1,000 to $3,000 for the treatment. In Mexican dental clinics, this treatment is $150. Dental implants and crowns are popular cosmetic surgeries, yet they can cost $6,000 for a single implant and crown. In Mexican dental clinics, it is $2,000. If you don't need implants, you may consider veneers. In Mexican dental clinics, you'll pay around $900 to $1,500 per veneer in the U.S., yet you'll pay $300 per veneer ($1,800 for six).
