There is nothing worse than finding something that you want online, research and decide to purchase or book and you then find that it comes with extra costs, hidden charges administration fees, delivery charges, or basically not what you were promised or expected.
And dentistry in another country is no different, Marketing and promotions allow the very best perceptions about services and guarantees but often leave out important information or clauses until you have either made arrangements or are in the clinic.
Costs of Dentistry in Mexico can vary greatly, the one thing they have in Common is that they are a lot less than those in the United States and Canada. While you will want to make your dollar go further on your dental Vacation in Cancun Mexico is a good idea to be aware of certain cost variations from clinics to clinics.
FACT: We are all looking for the best deals for our dental needs both in quality and cost:
If you really compare the costs of treatments from dental clinic to clinic in Cancun and Riviera Maya that provide services for dental tourists, there is very little real differences in prices, If there is we would recommend caution (good quality dental materials and brands come with set costs for a clinic) But there can be bigger gaps in the the Experience of dentists or ability, (And this is the same the world over). So take this into account when comparing costs of dental work in Mexico.
Try not to take things just on face value when researching the costs of dental treatments in Cancun, as a clinic that promotes dental crowns at a set price which will often be the lowest and then present another material type of dental crown sometimes it can be for a genuine prosthetic, aesthetic reason, but understanding types and all costs helps.
For example Porcelain fused to Metal , Porcelain fused to high noble metal, Zirconia and so on are all common types of dental crowns but have price variations due to material types.
Marketing and Presentation can make all the difference in getting the patients attention.
But are the costs you see advertised really as good a deal as they seem? do you take them at face value or would your decisions be the same if you were able to understand or at the very least be aware f the price variables and were broken down with more realistic descriptions.

The idea that a dentist can tell you how much a dental treatment and especially ones involving dental Implants, without seeing any patient history or treatment files, Xrays and scans for Larger more Complex Dental Treatments is somewhat misleading.
Many Oral rehabilitations can be complicated to price, especially Implant Rehabilitations like the ALLON4 And ALLON6 due to the variations of patients oral conditions and require recent supporting Imaging, Recent dental evaluations and information as each case (although techniques are similar) again patient conditions vary and this is where additional treatments maybe needed or a variant of the procedure you want or need.
