Why Travel For Dental?
Finding reasonable dental care has never been so accessible. While the price of getting extensive—or even simple—work done at home can be frightening, there are many overseas options that offer just as good a service, and at a fraction of the cost.
According to recent statistics, only 12% of U.S. seniors have some form of dental coverage. And with reported increases in dental costs, more and more people are finding better, more affordable dental care overseas.
Now, many people interested in medical tourism have learned that they can save tens of thousands of dollars on dental treatments without sacrificing on quality…and many of these services are just a short plane journey away.

Dental Check-up or Examination
When was the last time you went to the dentist for a check-up?
Dental professionals recommend a routine dental examination twice a year to have your teeth cleaned and checked for signs for problems like cavities, gum disease, or more serious problems like infection or mouth cancer.
If it has been more than six months since you had a dental check-up, explore the options for an affordable, high quality dental treatment on your next business trip or vacation. A bright smile could be the best souvenir you bring home!
Dental offices around the work are staffed by highly trained dental professionals in offices with state of the art dental equipment. While prices may be more affordable than at home, quality is not compromised and may even exceed the standards you receive from your local dentist.
Your dental check-up includes a thorough teeth cleaning and polishing by a dental hygienist. Digital or traditional X-rays of your teeth will be taken to look for problems that are not visible to the naked eye.
The dentist will look at the X-rays as well as conduct a complete examination of your mouth, neck and head for any signs of trouble. If any small problems are detected such as a tooth cavity, a filling or other routine services can be performed while you are there.

Whitening or Bleaching
Embarrassed by your dingy smile with yellowed or stained teeth? Ready for a dazzling bright smile that you want to share with the world? Consider whitening your teeth.
Dentists offer whitening or bleaching services to people who no longer want to hide their smiles because of teeth that never look clean. Whitening techniques used by dentists last longer than over the counter products like whitening strips or toothpaste with ingredients that include whitening gels that offer limited results.
To have your teeth professionally whitened by a dentist, the dentist will apply a whitening gel to your teeth and then use a laser light to accelerate the bleaching process. The treatment generally takes 30 – 60 minutes and the results last about four months. The whitening treatment is painless and affordable for many people.
Let us schedule this quick and easy treatment for you and send you on your way to a better smile!
Quick Facts about Dental Whitening:
- Longer lasting than OTC treatments
- Only 30 – 60 minutes for treatment

Are you afraid to smile because of chipped, stained, crooked, or uneven teeth? Veneers can create a bright, uniform set of teeth to get you smiling again.
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that is custom-made to cover and adhere to your teeth. The veneers are matched to the color of your teeth so that they blend in naturally. Once the veneers are in place, you can and should brush them for good dental care.
Veneers can be whitened if they become stained through normal activities like drinking coffee, red wine, or other types of beverages that discolor teeth.
Being fitted for veneers is easy. The dentist will measure you for veneers at the first visit and have you come back to have the made-to-order veneers put in place. Depending on how many veneers are needed and how long it takes the laboratory to create them, the entire process usually takes two visits within one week
If properly cared for, veneers can last five to ten years. It is an affordable, painless, noninvasive process that will have you smiling again!
Quick Facts about Veneers
- Affordable, painless, noninvasive
- Creates uniform smile
- Can last 5 – 10 years
- Custom-made covers for your teeth
Do you suffer with cracked or broken teeth? Have a large filling or extensive tooth decay? A dental crown or cap can restore your teeth to help you chew comfortably and smile confidently.
A dental crown or cap is made of porcelain, resin, or metal such as gold and is custom-made to fit over your teeth. While some dentists have the skills to fit crowns, some patients, especially those who need extensive repair work on several teeth, may prefer going to an expert who is a prosthodontist.
Here is how the process works. To fit a tooth with a crown, an impression of the tooth is made. Using that impression like a mold, the cap is made. The damaged tooth is reshaped to allow the cap to fit over it. The crown or underlying tooth can be styled so that the cap fits cleanly and snuggly over the damaged tooth. The crown is then cemented in place.
A crown should last 10-15 years. It is a relatively painless procedure. Some dental offices have laboratories on site so that the crown can be made quickly. The entire process can be completed in 1 or 2 visits that are a few days apart.

Do you hide your smile because you have missing teeth from decay or an accident? Is chewing difficult because you have lost one or more teeth? Have you visited your local dentist who has taken X-rays and recommended dental implants? Exploring a less expensive but high quality service from one of our providers may be the answer for you.
A dental implant is a specialized procedure that should be done by a specialist called a prosthodontist who is highly trained to restore or replace teeth with implants, dentures, or bridges.
An implant is a synthetic tooth that is screwed into the jawbone as a permanent replacement for a lost or removed tooth. Patients often require more than one implant and will have work done on several teeth at the same time.
For more substantial tooth loss, patients can consider dentures, All-on-4 or All-on-6 implant options. Your dental professional will review the options with you to help you select the treatment that is best for you.
A dental implant starts local anesthesia so that you do not feel pain and are awake during the treatment. The prosthodontist will drill a small hole into the jaw bone where the missing tooth had been. A special implant screw is inserted into the jaw bone and covered with gum to allow the screw to become settled in the mouth and fixed to the jawbone. A temporary crown may be fitted over the implant to protect the screw to allow the implant to heal for two to six months.
For most people, a second visit to the prosthodontist is needed. The temporary crown is removed and a permanent crown is fitted over the implant and cemented in place. The replacement tooth or teeth are fixed in place and are not removable like dentures or bridges.
Because of the high cost of getting dental implants in some countries, many medical travelers are interested in affordable yet high quality services offered in our preferred destinations even if it means taking two trips. Depending on your particular dental needs and the provider you choose, you may select a prosthodontist who can complete the treatment in one visit using a technique like the All-on-4 implants or your particular situation may require a longer treatment time from six weeks to six months.

Dentures and Bridges
Dentures or “false teeth” are full sets of removable replacements for natural teeth that have been lost because of accident or injury, tooth decay, or aging. Dentures help with life’s normal activities like eating and drinking, smiling and kissing while having the added advantage of preventing the face from appearing puckered and older.
A bridge or partial denture is a used when someone has lost several teeth but still has healthy natural teeth. A partial denture consists of several fabricated replacement teeth that are used to fill the gap created by tooth loss. The bridge is attached to existing natural teeth that are on either side of the space where teeth used to be and helps to keep the existing natural teeth properly spaced. The process can be completed in two or three visits in one week.
Preparing to be fitted for dentures or a bridge will take a few visits that may take up to two weeks to complete the entire treatment. The prosthodontist, (a highly trained dental professional who specializes in the replacement and restoration of teeth), will take measurements of your mouth and jaw and then create molds or wax forms as sample dentures.
The sample dentures will be modified to properly fit your mouth, ensuring that the color, fit, and shape of the replacement teeth are correct. Using this sample denture, the actual denture will be prepared for you.
Your dentures will be adjusted to fit your mouth so that you can comfortably talk, chew, drink, and smile.
Dentures can be made in one of two methods – “conventional” or “immediate”.
Conventional dentures require that all teeth be removed. Then for eight to twelve weeks, the gums are given time to heal. Once the gums have sufficiently healed, the dentures will be fitted in the mouth. The downside to this approach is that the patient has no teeth while the gums are healing.
The process of receiving immediate dentures is the opposite of conventional dentures. The dentures are made before the removal of any teeth and can be placed in the mouth as soon as the teeth are removed. Because gums shrink during the healing process, the dentures may have to be adjusted one or more times to ensure that they fit properly.
There are alternatives to dentures including dental implants, All-on-4, and All-on-6. Your dentist or prosthodontist will advise you as to the best option for you. The process of selecting the right dental professional can be expedited if you have X-rays and a treatment plan from your local dentist.

All-on-4 and All-on-6
Missing some or all of your teeth? You are not alone. Millions of people around the world suffer from partial or total tooth loss. Several options are available that offer tooth replacement. All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants are an excellent alternative to dentures, bridges, or traditional dental implants.
The All-on-4 or 6 procedure is a variation on a traditional dental implant. When a tooth is missing or removed, an implant replaces the natural tooth with a fabricated one. A titanium screw is inserted in the jawbone and a crown is attached to the screw to put and keep the false tooth in place. The process is repeated for each tooth that needs to be replaced.
With the All-on-4 or All-on-6 procedure, four implants (or six if needed) are used as anchors for entire sets of upper or lower teeth. The All-on-4 approach means that you do not need an implant for each individual tooth. Once the anchor screws are inserted, the temporary set of teeth are prepared and fitted to your mouth. Certain clinics that have properly trained staff and a laboratory on site can complete the procedure in one day!
A return visit is needed after the gums have healed and the screws are fused to the jawbone. During the two to six month healing process, you will have a temporary set of teeth.
When you have your follow-up appointment, you will be fitted with a comfortable, custom-made set of permanent teeth that will last you ten to fifteen years.
A skilled dentist or prosthodontist, (a highly trained dental professional who specializes in the replacement and restoration of teeth) is ready to evaluation your dental health to determine the best options for you to restore your smile.

Have you experienced shooting pain in your mouth when eating or drinking? Do your gums look swollen from an infection? These and other symptoms may signal substantial tooth decay that has reached a nerve in your tooth. A root canal may be the treatment that can cure the infection and prevent loss of the tooth.
The much maligned root canal is a blessing when tooth decay causes an infection in the nerve of a tooth, causing excruciating pain. A root canal is generally performed by an endodontist who has specialized training in treatments that focus on the nerves or pulp that are in teeth.
Before the root canal treatment begins, the patient is given local anesthesia to numb the pain. Once the mouth and jaw are numb, the endodontist will drill the decayed tooth removing the pulp while leaving as much of the tooth intact as possible. The nerve canal is cleaned out and then packed with synthetic material. The tooth is refilled and the treatment is complete.
It is possible that your tooth has suffered too much decay to be saved. Your dentist or the endodontist will create a plan of treatment for you to determine what is best for your long term dental health.
