This has prompted a spike in dental insurance sales, unfortunately, those who have purchased a dental insurance plan have quickly realized it does not cover many procedures and for those it does, the coverage is insufficient, leading to high out of pocket expenses for patients.
It would seem there is no recourse for patients in need of extensive dental treatments like a full mouth reconstruction, which is why many of them end up with ill-fitting dentures that over time cause more harm than good. But, don’t despair, there is a way to save thousands of dollars on full mouth restoration treatments without compromising the quality of care, we are talking about dental tourism.
Costa Rica has become a beacon of hope for edentulous individuals or those whose teeth have been seriously compromised due to everyday wear and tear or stressed induced bruxism (teeth grinding). With quality standards equal to those used in developed countries of North America and Europe and significantly reduced prices for the same procedures, Costa Rica is the perfect destination for restoring your smile.
There are some things to consider, however, and those are related to quality, not all dental offices use brand name materials and implants, and not all dentists have been the necessary qualifications to perform complex dental surgeries.
