As promised here are the results of my trip to Mexico to see the dentist. First of all I went to Los Algodones Mexico which is close to Yuma AZ but you have to cross the CA state line to get there so you need a helmet if you go on a bike. There is a big fenced in parking lot to park in right by the border so you can park in the USA and walk across the border to Mexico, the cost to park is $6. Once you cross the border you will see the biggest concentration of dental clinics, pharmacies and optical clinic that you will ever see in one place. There must be 50 dental clinics but I didn't count them so that's a guess and there has to be that many optical and pharmacies too. At the dental clinic I went to I had 3 teeth pulled and a 6 tooth bridge put in, I already had 1 tooth missing from a accident I had when I was still working so that meant that I now had a 4 tooth gap and the other 2 caps where for the teeth that were ground down for the bridge, that's how it got to a 6 tooth bridge. I picked out a non-metal bridge which was more expensive than the metal bridge but I figured that if I am going to go through this dental work I want to put in the best product possible so I went with the more expensive /better bridge. So on Monday morning I went into the clinic and meet the dentist then discussed my options and then I had a MRI done to decide if there was enough bone for implants after the MRI I meet with the dentist again and then made the decision, then the dentist did the impressions for the bridge and then pulled the 3 teeth and ground down the 2 eye teeth so he could cement the bridge in, that's was it for Monday. On Tuesday I went back to the dentist at noon and the bridge was made and all the dentist had to do was cement in the bridge and I was done, the cost was $2375 for the complete procedure. There was thousands of retirees from all over the USA and Canada coming into Mexico everyday to get dental work, eyeglasses or prescriptions filled and everyone of them I talked too were happy with the results just as I was. You can get implant for around $700 each and the tooth for the implant was around $400 or so, eyeglasses were going for $35 to $50 and prescriptions were about 1/4 of the cost you would pay in the USA. For example Viagra's where only $3.99 for 4 100 mg pills (I priced them for Gary) and every pharmacy sells them along with most other prescription drugs but keep in mind that the pharmacies don't have everything so there maybe medications that you can't get. All in all it was a positive experience and dental facilities were clean and the dental procedure was pretty much painless as possible for as dental work goes so at this time I would recommend it to anyone.
Do you have the name of the clinic you went to? There are some highly rated clinics and some not so good.
Glad it went well and thanks for sharing.
