Dental procedures in the United States can be very costly and stress-inducing. Crown implants alone can run the average person literally thousands of dollars. Many people even opt to live with their dental maladies rather than go to the dentist and pay several hundred dollars for dental procedures.
However, there is a better way to ensure that all necessary dental care is taken care of for a fraction of the average dental bill. One of the best and most interesting ways to make sure that the least amount of money is paid for the best possible quality of dental care, is to travel to a country like Costa Rica for dental treatment.
It is a statistical fact that countries like Costa Rica have a much lower cost for medical procedures than the United States; not to mention the fact that Costa Rican dental care is performed with the same caliber of service as that of the United States and other more developed countries. The lower cost of Costa Rican dental procedures such as crown implants and root canals, are a fraction of the cost for these advanced procedures in the United States.
Estimated costs of a crown implant in the United States is around $2000-4000 per tooth, depending on the complexity. In Costa Rica, it can be as little as $900 per tooth. This is just around 30% of the US cost of dental crown implants.
Another reason why it is preferable to go to Costa Rica for medical procedures is the tourist aspect of your investment. Costa Rica, though not as developed as the United States, has a wealth of beautiful countrysides and beaches where you can recover after the treatment.
The finest procedures take place in the capital city of San Jose and the Central Valley areas of Costa Rica, which are both lovely tourist locations that allow any dental-care seeker a fine relaxed visit. When traveling to Costa Rica you not get fantastic dental care, you also get a fantastic experience filled with relaxed shopping and the quintessential quaintness that such a gorgeous country provides. Costa Rica is one of the top tourism destinations in the world because of its fantastic scenery and wonderful people. So when you go to Costa Rica to have cheaper dental procedures done, it is not only a medical trip, it is a vacation.
The costs of traveling and staying as well as the dental treatment are easily offset by the beach front views during recovery. Because the tooth crown implants can cost less than 10% of what they do in the United States that leaves so much money free that would usually have to go towards the implant. This money can be used on airfare, gas money, hotel accommodations, souvenirs, lavish meals, or delicious drinks at some of the finer restaurants that Costa Rica has to offer. After the whole affair, you are bound to have saved thousands of dollars on what would normally be thrown down a dentist sink.
It is a great idea to travel to Costa Rica for dental procedures. Of course, the main reason to do so is the money that it can saved and the fantastic quality that is offered, but it is always a nice incentive to stay on for a few extra days to enjoy the beauty of the country and the tropical paradise. Just take a few vacation days and travel down to Costa Rica for less expensive, high quality dental care and some relaxation.
