Why Dental Work Costs Less in Mexico

  • Unlike American dentists, Mexican dental specialists are not deep in debt when they complete their education. This is because college tuition is paid for by the government. Graduates then serve patients for free in their first year of practice.
  • Real estate prices in Mexico are not as high as in the U.S.
  • Mexican dental professionals do not spend a lot on malpractice insurance.
  • Staff salaries, utilities, and rent are low in Mexico, as compared to the U.S.

Sani Dental FAQs

  1. Does Sani Dental charge a consultation or diagnosis fee?

No, this is done free of charge.

  1. Can I get my old metal fillings replaced with tooth-colored ones?

Yes. Removing the metal fillings comes at no extra cost. The dentist will place a resin or tooth-colored filling on the affected tooth. The procedure is completed within a day.

  1. I have a missing tooth. What can be done to replace it?

Sani’s on-site dental lab can fabricate a partial denture as a replacement for the missing tooth. The dentist can put a dental bridge in place of the missing tooth.

As opposed to partial dentures, dental bridges are secure and feel like natural teeth.

Dr. Carl E. Misch in his book Dental Implant Prosthetics mentions that dental implants provide the best possible solution in such cases. Dr. Misch is an internationally recognized prosthodontist known for his valuable contributions to implantology.

The implant forms the artificial root for the missing tooth. The dentist places a crown on top of the implant when it has fused with the jawbone. The advantages of dental implants are:

They feel like natural teeth. They have a long life.
They can be used to replace several missing teeth. They do not cause grinding of adjoining teeth.
  1. If I am diabetic, am I required to inform my dentist?

Yes. In fact, diabetic patients who are having dental work done need special care. You should inform your dentist about your condition and medication at every appointment, even if the same is mentioned on your file.

  1. Does the clinic accept payment in US Dollars?

Yes. In fact, the US Dollar is a commonly accepted currency in Los Algodones.

  1. Does Sani Dental accept credit cards or checks for payment?

Yes. The clinic accepts credit cards (VISA and MasterCard), cash, personal, traveler’s & cashier’s checks, money orders, and debit cards. A 4% fee applies to payment made through a credit or debit card.

  1. Can I make use of my dental insurance at Sani Dental?

Yes. The clinic can complete the required paperwork for the reimbursement of your money by your insurance company. This is even when Sani Dental may not have a direct tie-up with the organization. You can ask for this US$ 30 service from the front desk when you arrive at Sani Dental for your first appointment.

  1. Is sedation dentistry offered at the clinic?

Yes, however, none of the procedures that you may undergo at Sani Dental require sedation. If you wish to be sedated, the clinic can facilitate this. Dental professionals at the clinic provide Nitrous Oxide or IV Sedation, which costs US$ 600. If you wish to avail of this service, you may inform the staff when booking your appointment.

  1. How many visits do I need to make to the clinic for getting dental implants? How long does each stay last?

If your jawbone has good density, dental implants may take two trips. The first trip is 2-3 days long. This is when the dentist will place the metal implant post into your jawbone. The doctor will use anesthesia for this process. You have to then wait for six months for the jawbone to grow into the surface of the dental implant. The second trip takes 3-5 days. This is when the dentist will place a crown on top of the implant.

  1. I wish to drive to Los Algodones. Where can I leave my car?     

Sani Dental has a dedicated parking lot adjoining the clinic. It is located two blocks away from the Andrade border. There is no parking fee for patients.

  1. I am an American. Do I need a passport to enter Mexico?

Although you will not require a passport to cross the border, you will need it when re-entering the US. The clinic can provide you with a letter to speed up the process of border-crossing.

  1. Are there specific timings for crossing the border?

Yes, the border-line opens at 6 AM and closes at 10 PM.

  1. Is it safe to stay overnight in Mexico?

Yes. Los Algodones is located on the US-Mexico border and is famous for dental tourism, also known as the ‘Molar City’. Los Algodones receives a large number of dental tourists from North America, and all the locals speak English. Amenities are at a walking distance within the city.
