1. What are All-on-4s?
All-on-4 is a dental procedure where four to eight dental implants are used to anchor a permanent appliance that replaces all of your teeth. This can be done in a number of ways, but typically two implants are placed at an angle in the back of the upper or lower arch and two implants are placed in the front of the arch. A new set of dentures is then made to fit these implants, which are attached to the implants. Finally, your dental implants are stabilized along with a prosthesis that allows you to use your teeth right away. You can get All-on-4s in Mexico and see significant savings as specialist dentists have been performing this procedure in Mexico for decades.
2. How much do All-on-4s cost in Mexico?
Many factors go into the costs of All-on-4s. Dependencies include, but are not limited to, tooth extractions, the strength and structure of the jaw and whether you will need bone grafts, the quality of material used, and other considerations. But at every step, getting All-on-4s in Mexico will save you money. Additional costs may include adental computed tomography, implant parts, bone grafting, anesthesia (if necessary) or other services; you can save 50-75% by getting implants or All-on-4s in Mexico. While US costs for All-on-4s vary from city to city, the average dental patient can expect to spend between $70,000 and $100,000 for All-on-4s in the US. Experienced implantologist in Mexico costs an average of $25,000 to $30,000 (both arches). So you are realizing significant savings by getting All-on-4s at one of our carefully vetted and approved dental offices in Mexico. But be careful! In any country, including the US, researching and comparing prices is important, but make sure you understand what you're paying and what you're getting. Not all dentists use the same quality of dental materials and not all doctors are equally qualified or experienced. Regardless of the treatment or procedure you're considering, be sure to compare apples to apples. US dentists usually only quote part of the expenses, so make sure any quote, whether from a US or Mexico dentist, includes all fees. Be sure to factor in travel costs and time to go to Mexico (of course we have dental offices in border cities where you can stay in the US and cross the border for treatment). our blog,The lowest price is the best priceit's a good starting point.
3. Who is Beyond Borders Dental and why should I use their services?
Beyond Frontiers Dentistryis a US-based concierge dental referral agency. We have been referring dental patients to our select group of dental practices in Mexico since 2016. We have helped thousands of patients obtain affordable, safe and high quality dental care in Mexico. We have a 5-star Google My Business rating and have been featured in news articles, television reports and dental magazines. We were recently featured in theForbes travel articleabout dental tourism.
Our services are provided at no cost to our patients, and we take the time to understand each patient's needs and work with them to find the best dentist and dental office in Mexico for their treatment needs.
If you make your decision based on price alone, you'll need to consider two things: first, why is it cheaper, and second, what will you do if something goes wrong when you get home? What if you spend tens of thousands of dollars (but save a little money) and the job is substandard or you run into problems? You go to Mexico and try to fix this yourself? Are you going to try to sue them in a Mexican court? And why is it cheaper? Are the dentists qualified? Do they use internationally recognized and trusted brands of implant parts? This is exactly why people useBeyond Frontiers Dentistry. We carefully vet our dental offices. We review your credentials and certifications. We visited their laboratories and inspected their materials. And the most important,we are your advocate in the unlikely event that you have a problem on your way home.If there was a dental office that was cheaper and that we trusted to offer you this complex treatment, we would be referring you to that office.
4. Is it safe to go to Mexico for All-on-4s dental treatment?
As a lot of money can be saved with dental treatment in Mexico, there is a great deal of interest in having All-on-4s dental treatment in Mexico. But the first question that arises is whether it is safe to have dental treatment in Mexico. There is a lot of misinformation when it comes to the safety of traveling to Mexico for dental treatment. But the fact is, tens of thousands of American patients have received top-quality dental care in Mexico, and if you know where to go, it's pretty safe. Of course, parts of Mexico are not recommended for tourists, but border towns and popular tourist towns are safe and cater to foreign dental patients. In addition, we closely monitor the locations where our approved dental offices operate. So you can be sure thatBeyond Frontiers Dentistryrecommends only safe practices in areas that have consistently provided safe, high-quality dental care to US travelers.
5. Do Mexican dentists and staff speak English?
Yes, all of our offices have doctors and staff who are fluent in English. In addition, our dental offices are in popular dental tourism areas, such as those with easy access to the US/Mexico border or established tourist destinations, and offer dental care to frequently visiting American tourists. They are very used to working with Americans and meeting their dental needs.
6. Will I receive quality dental implants for All-on-4s from a highly trained dentist in Mexico?
Well, maybe and maybe not, depending on where you go and who you see for your All-on-4 dental treatment. That's why it's important to have a reliable source to refer you to dental offices with an extensive history of high-quality care. We carefully monitor our patients' experience and make regular visits to our dentists in Mexico to inspect their labs as well as investigate the parts and brands they use for their All-on-4 components. This is our greatest commitment to those who trustBeyond Frontiers Dentistry. Unfortunately, dental tourism has become so popular over the past two decades that many dentists are either not qualified to provide All-on-4s or have limited experience with the extensive treatment required for All-on-4s. And regulation is not as strict as it is in the US. This can give dental work in Mexico an unfairly negative reputation. But this is not the norm. If you go to a licensed and experienced dentist, especially dentists who are vetted through our extensive qualification process and our onsite visit, you can receive high quality work and save a lot of money. To understand our verification process, visit theHow about the qualitypage.
7. Can you give me a quote for All-on-4s in Mexico so I can compare it with other quotes?
Absolutely, and we encourage our patients to do just that. The more information you collect and understand about your options, the easier it will be to make the best, most informed decision for you. The most important thing to remember is to compare apples to apples because there is a lot of false advertising. Thousands of patients trustedBeyond Frontiers Dentistryto find the best dental work at the most affordable price. Remember, the lowest price may not be the best price. The best price is the lowest price for the highest quality work, and our offices meet that standard every day.
8. Are dental offices professional and use the same hygiene and sterilization techniques as American dentists?
Yeah, otherwise why would Americans keep going to Mexico, right? We make our own visits to the dental offices we recommend to assure our patients that the offices meet our exacting standards. We fully recognize that high standards of hygiene are imperative to ensure safe dental work.
The safety and health of our patients has always been a priority for us.Beyond Frontiers Dentistry. That's why we vetted our dental offices even before the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, our4-step evaluation processhas consistently done the job you are given with safety and comfort, as our many testimonials reflect.
9. Do Mexican offices use modern, high-tech equipment for dental implants?
Our controlled offices are well equipped with some of the latest diagnostic equipment i.e. X-ray machines, 3D cone beam digital imaging and sophisticated ZirkonZahn systems to produce perfect dentures.
10. Do I need a passport for dental treatment in Mexico?
A state-issued Advanced Driver's License (EDL) provides travelers with not only a license to drive, but also proof of identity and citizenship when exiting and re-entering US borders.
An EDL qualifies as a REAL-ID that can be used for US domestic air travel. However, an EDL cannot be used for international air travel, nor for domestic air travel within the borders of certain countries. For more information, visit theUS Passport Service Guide.
To return to the US from Mexico at border towns, you must present a passport or an Enhanced Driver's License with a copy of your birth certificate or passport at the border.
11. And the visa; do i need one for mexican dental treatments?
A state-issued Enhanced Driver's License (EDL) or passport is sufficient for border towns. If you travel to our dental office in Cozumel or Cancun, you definitely need a valid passport and visa, which are handed out by flight attendants or upon arrival before clearing customs at the airport.
12. Is a dental implant a more painful procedure than a tooth extraction?
All surgical procedures involve some degree of pain and a certain level of anesthesia is administered during dental implant procedures. Patients generally experience a mild level of discomfort and complain of mild pain as the anesthesia wears off. The level of pain also depends on whether it is a simple dental implant or a bone grafting procedure.
13. What about water filtration systems?
If you're worried about getting sick from drinking water in Mexico, you'll be happy to know that our approved dental offices use water filtered by sophisticated treatment systems to keep it safe and drinkable.
14. Does the lower cost of dental implants in Mexico equate to lower quality?
No one wants to compromise on the quality of healthcare by taking the cheaper route, and you shouldn't have to. In America, some of us were raised to believe that higher costs mean higher quality. This is not the case for dental work in Mexico. Cutting costs doesn't mean they are using lower quality ingredients. From porcelain crowns to metal posts and dentures, our approved dentists use the same materials in your mouth that you would if you received dental treatment in the US.
It's simply that in a country like Mexico, the cost of living is significantly lower compared to the United States and Canada, making it much more feasible for dentists to own and operate a practice. Also, dentists in Mexico are not required to pay for malpractice insurance. Mexican dentists also carry less student loan debt than US dentists due to government subsidies. They pay these subsidies with a year of free after-school service. I hope this explains the lower cost without any suspicion.
15. Is it common to travel to Mexico for dental tourism?
Tens of thousands of people travel to Mexico (and other foreign countries) for dental treatment every year. This is because you can save thousands on affordable dentistry and it's easier to get appointments with Mexican dentists. Another reason people come to Mexico is so they can get dental work faster and, better yet, take a vacation.
16. Is it easy to access dental work in Mexico?
Some of the most popular locations for dental tourism in Mexico, Thailand, Costa Rica and India. Of these, Mexico is by far the closest and most convenient option for Americans.

In addition, there are several of our offices in Mexico's border cities.
17. What are some benefits of using a referral service for dental treatment in Mexico?
Before making an appointment, it's important to go through a reputable dental referral agency or do thorough research on your own. An independent referral agency such asBeyond Frontiers Dentistryhas no loyalty to anyone but you. Referral agencies should have already done due diligence before sending patients abroad for dental or medical treatment. They can also answer questions, provide general advice/recommendations, and be your point of contact should you need assistance. We advocate on your behalf and make sure everything is going according to plan, and our referral services arealways freefor you.
18. Since your services are free to me, how is Beyond Borders Dental compensated for your referral services?
We get this question all the time. We are paid directly by dental practices. Dental practices that work with us benefit when we refer patients and save a lot of time examining each patient and answering questions. If a patient decides to use our offices, we oversee every step to ensure everything goes smoothly.
19. Is getting dental implants in Mexico painless (as dentistry can be)?
Most dentists in Mexico offer anesthesia options like they do in the US, including total sedation. In addition, our dental offices have trained anesthesiologists on their staff. The procedure is not painful because it is performed under local or general anesthesia and after the numbness disappears after the procedure, patients report mild levels of pain.
20. Do Mexican dentists use the same materials as American ones?
From porcelain crowns to metal posts and dentures, our approved dentists use the same materials in your mouth that you would if you received dental treatment in the US.
21. What if I need more than one specialist?

With savings of up to 75% on major dental procedures such as dental crowns, implants and root canals, Mexico is a great choice for most seniors. Our testimonials confirm the satisfaction of our many patients who have traveled to Mexico for dental treatment.
24. Can I get cosmetic dental procedures in Mexico?

25. Are there other dental specialists available in Mexico?

Our approved dentists guarantee your treatment and services for up to four years. If something isn't right, you can go back and fix it at no additional cost. However, this is not an option at all Mexican dental offices, but we put you first and therefore this is something we promise you.
28. Should I take cash with me when traveling to Mexico for dental treatment?
It's always a good idea to have some cash when you're traveling. Typically, you'll pay cash or a credit card for services provided during an appointment, but you'll still want cash for incidentals during your stay in Mexico. Most tourist destinations and areas that receive a lot of Americans accept credit cards and often US dollars as well. We do not suggest carrying a large amount of cash.
29. Can I get medication in Mexico after my dental treatment?
Many Americans fill non-narcotic prescriptions in Mexico. And if your dentist writes you painkillers or other prescriptions, you can visit a Mexican pharmacy and get your prescription at a reduced price before heading home. The savings can be substantial.
30. How many trips to Mexico will I need for my dental work?
If you need extensive dental work, you may need to come back for a few visits. Still, in many cases the cost will be much less than if you paid for the same job in the US. After we have discussed your proposed treatment plan, we can advise you on travel requirements.
31. How will I get my bearings when I arrive in Mexico?

They use dental X-rays and 3-D cone beam computed tomography. examinations, consider the patient's desired outcome, and most importantly, base your final decision onaftera complete in-office examination.

Our own internal analysis shows that our customers are satisfied at an even higher rate. This exceeds satisfaction with US dentists.
38. Why is it so affordable to get quality dental treatment/dental implants in Mexico?
This is explained above (salary scale there, cost of living, rents, personnel costs). In addition, the dental school is subsidized by the government of Mexico. This contributes to lower costs and dentists who could really focus on their studies (instead of working multiple jobs and taking classes at the same time).
