Get Your Dental Implants, Cosmetic Dentistry, Root Canals and Crowns in a Mexican Dental Vacation Resort Town

A Mexico Dental Vacation Will Ease The Pain and Expense of Seeing a Dentist

                                                       Los Cabos is a great Mexican dental vacation destination

By About Mexican Staff

US and Canadian dental patients are often in shock when they discover their dental insurance plan will not cover their dental makeover and with the estimate being as much as a nice condo in Cabo or Vegas.

Read on and learn how you can get your dental work done for far less by taking a dental vacation that for major treatment patients. If you are a member of AARP, Baby Boomer or a 50+ senior- this is what you've been dreaming of.

Youth is traditionally equated with strength, beauty, good health and perfect teeth. When we become teenagers - our diet of junk food and poor oral hygiene causes cavities and often periodontal (gum) disease. Often by age 30, teeth can look as though the owners have been chewing on the bottoms of metal garbage cans. Cigarettes, drugs and alcohol abuse worsen the situation. Many people learn about the importance of taking care of their teeth too late and become candidates for cosmetic dentistry work or a full-mouth oral restoration.

Dental Implants, Cosmetic Dentistry by a Board Certified Cabo Dentist for the Cost of a Non-Certified Dentist!

A Board Certified Cabo dentist is who you want for your crown, cosmetic dentistry and dental implants - especially if the cost is the same as for a less-trained general dentist in Cabo.

 UPDATED 5/2016

If you've spent any time in a rich locale-- be it Beverly Hills, Palm Beach, or even a quaint looking southern town with old money -- then you've met people with impossibly perfect teeth. The kind that rekindle images of Justin Timberlake and Hallie Barry.

 Big white straight perfect teeth. If you've driven around in these towns, you've probably also seen exteriors (if not interiors) of high-end dental clinics with windows of beveled glass and likely a chandelier or two in the main entry. The old vision of visiting a dentist out of a necessity due to a cavity or root canal has been sublimated by consumer demands for aesthetically balanced teeth, be this in the way of whitening, orthodontia, veneers, or dental implants.

OBAMA HEALTH CARE - Mexican Dentists are Dancing in the Streets

Obama Care Has Mexican Dentists Dancing in the Streets

Dentists in Mexico are dancing in the streets over Obama’s new health care reform bill, as the majority of the treatments received by Americans in Mexico fall within the areas that will continue to be denied coverage by American dental insurance plans such as multiple root canals, crowns and cosmetic dentistry, dental implants and oral restorations. Mexican dentists will continue to enjoy the steady flow of inadequately insured American patients who head south for affordable dental care as they have for decades.

From Wooden Choppers To A Mexican Dental Vacation

By David Mandich - 

Over a hundred years ago, most people lost all their permanent teeth by the time they were forty-five if they weren’t already dead from cholera, typhoid, smallpox, influenza, tuberculosis or other killers. The average life span a hundred years ago was only forty-five years. Advances in health care and medicines have increased the average life span to over seventy-five in most industrialized countries.

In the past, a pair of pliers was as common a tool for dentists as as scissors and razors were for barbers. The red and white striped barber pole symbolized blood and sanitation and barbers also pulled teeth. Over a hundred years ago - If you had a really good dentist, you might get a set of wooden teeth made to replace your rotting ones. Anesthesia – was whiskey in the US, tequila in Mexico.

  By Tomas Silva - Cabo Dental Patient Adviser for About Mexican

Once upon a time it was difficult to find a certified dental specialist in Cabo San Lucas for larger dental procedures like cosmetic dental makeovers or dental implants as most dentists in Los Cabos are only general dentists who make a living drilling, filling and pulling teeth on locals.

STOP DRINKING COKE! The Good & the Bad Drinks for Your Teeth

Colas aren't the only bad boys on the block.

I recently interviewed Dr. Rafael Ramirez the Cosmetic Dentistry Specialist at Alicia Dental Paradise in Cabo San Lucas. A Mexican dentist, former head of maxillofacial surgery for 16 years at a Mexico City hospital and expert implantologist, he had a lot to say about how different beverages can affect our teeth.

According to Dr. Ramirez: "Recent Studies have shown that dark colas are bad for your teeth. Other studies show that light colored sodas are bad and another study recently proved root beer to be the safest soda of all." Confused yet?

The doctor told me to lay off Coca-Cola – “Poison” were his exact words - and being especially bad for the kidneys. That´s 3 strikes for Coke – strike one for the teeth, strike two for the waistline, and strike three for the kidneys. I haven't had a coke in 8 hours now...

Cabo San Lucas Blown Glass Factories

Cabo San Lucas Blown Glass Factories

by David Mandich for the Cabo Free Press

Glass has been made in Cabo San Lucas for almost 25 years. Glass making has been in Mexico since the conquest, with the process known to mankind for over 4,000 years. 2,500 years ago in Mesopotamia, blowing glass bubbles with a tube was invented. The Romans, Venetians, and Muslim peoples all practiced the craft with the Spanish bringing it to the New World in 1535. Among the first Jamestown colonialists were six glass blowers thus establishing the tradition in North America culminating with Tiffany glass as the American benchmark over 100 years ago.

The Spanish created new industries in Mexico that would employ the indigenous people and supply the Spanish empire with saleable merchandise. For example - Chinese blue and white ceramics were ordered copied and the Talavera ceramic industry was created in Puebla. Weaving looms were imported from Spain and commercial textile manufacturing was born using locally grown cotton and native vegetable dyes. Spanish glass artisans introduced glass making to Mexico.

Cabo has two glass factories - Vitrofusion y Arte in centro Cabo (aka The Glass Factory) (624) 143-0120 - and the other located mid-corridor in the Tule area founded by Architect Alfredo Enriques shortly afterwards. Artisans at both factories turn out bodegas full of margarita glasses, pitchers, plates, bowls, tequila shot glasses, wine glasses, Christmas ornaments, and other art and utilitarian pieces daily.

Custom work can be made to order at the glass factories - from colored glass skylights to beautiful dinner sets. When a patient of a dental clinic in  Cabo accidentally broke a white glass porcelain cuspidor on a dental chair, a new one was quickly made at the Glass Factory. Not surprisingly - the new one looked like a margarita glass!

It was made of clear glass with tiny bubbles and had a blue rim. "Patients sometimes do a double-take when they first see it. I just ask them if they want the rim salted or not," laughed the Dentista.

Traditional margarita glasses and pitchers are the factories mainstays given the high demand by cantinas, bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels and individuals. Gift sets are packaged and carried off around the world by tourists. Margarita glassware may be next in Mexico's GNP to Tequila.

People bring in empty glass bottles and exchange them for glassware at the Glass Factory. The artisans recycle the glass into new glass objects - an ecological alternative to creating new glass by heating sand, soda, and lime. Cabo's glass factories have viewing areas where one can safely watch glass work being created by the artisans in front of the roaring hot furnaces. The glass workshops are open for viewing from 8-2 pm with the sales showrooms open until 5 pm.

Marlin Fishing in Cabo San Lucas or Puerto Vallarta

Cabo Marlin Fishing 

By David Mandich - for the Cabo Free Press

In the old days - Mexican fishermen used pangas (dugouts) made of wood often carved from a tree trunk much the same as indigenous peoples around the world. You may still see an original one in a museum or lying forlorn in front of a hotel or restaurant entrance. Launched from shore and propelled by paddles or wind - fishing from pangas changed little for 1,000's of years until the arrival of the outboard motor and later in the 1950's - 22' long nearly indestructible fiberglass hulls.

Today you can get a sense of what it was like in the olden days by hiring a panga on Palmilla beach in San Jose Del Cabo at the sports fishing co-operative next to the now defunct Pepe's restaurant. This intrepid group of San Jose fishermen has been serving sports fishermen since the early 1950's. They have 16 pangas they launch off the beach through the surf the old fashioned way and another 10 cruisers up to 28' in length moored in the bay off the One and Only Palmilla hotel.

Avoid Root Canals Get Teeth That Replace Themselves

Here's a report that gives hope to everyone who dreads a date with the dentist for a root canal or dental makeover. 

Things are changing so fast in the biomedical field that it's hard for even professionals in the medical community to stay abreast of all the new developments. 

Especially amazing is the latest news on 3-D printing - do a Google search on it and prepare to be amazed. They are printing all kinds of 3-D things with machines - full-scale useable houses, tools, guns, human body parts and more! Futurists are having a field day. There are robots now that can make more more robots with 3-D printers which can  make more robots which can make more robots etc. etc. until someday robots will take over the planet.

Dental Implants By a Certified Dentist in Cabo, Cancun, Tijuana or Puerto Vallarta

A Mexican Dental Vacation For Crowns, Veneers or Dental Implants is Just What Your Accountant Ordered!

         Your Puerto Vallarta dentist is a short drive from this fabulous course

By Cabo Mexico Writer David Mandich 

Dental Implants in Mexico are inexpensive with a Certified Puerto Vallarta or Cabo dentist. 

Modern Dental Implants look more like a natural tooth than crowns, but last much longer. A good quality dental crown is hard to detect from a natural tooth without close inspection. The Board Certified dentists in Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta offer full-mouth cosmetic restorations at prices that will make your accountant smile.

Alicia Cabo Dental Paradise Clinic has a multi-disciplined dentist and certified cosmetic oral Rehabilitation specialist. Specializing in cosmetic dental makeovers, the doctor does virtually every type of dental treatment from a crown and root canal to a walk-in patient with a broken tooth sent by a local hotel. The Cabo dentist has been treating English speaking patients for over 30 years and earned a diploma from Nobel Biocare, the company that invented the dental implants.

Nobel Biocare Dental Implants are only $2,100 with a Cabo dentist vs. the average cost in the USA, of $5,000-$10,000 per unit.

A crown or root canal cost ranges from $1,000 to as much as $3,000 US Dollars in upscale clinics in big US cities while a Cabo dentist charges only $425-595 us. Cosmetic Dental makeovers can use a combination of dental implants, crowns, bridges, veneers and bonding, depending on each case.

Prior to getting on a plane for getting your implants done by a Puerto Vallarta or Cabo dentist, – it’s best to visit an implantologist back home to determine if you are suitable candidate for an implant. If any periodontal treatment is needed, a visit prior to the implant surgery may be required in order to do gum surgery, bone loss restoration, etc. Patients who are heavy tobacco users, substance abusers, diabetics or other unforeseen factors might make an implant unfeasable for some patients.

A dental implant in Mexico by a Certified Cabo or Puerto Vallarta dentist will cost far less than back home.

Dental implants are used most often for molars and front incisors. These teeth take the most abuse and are subject to most of the pressure while eating. An initial visit in which the titanium base is implanted in the bone is required. A second visit approximately 2- 4 months later will be scheduled when the permanent porcelain tooth is fitted into the base.

One-day implants are available for the lateral incisors that take less stress and abuse than the molars or front incisors. They are not normally used for the other teeth.

With dentures, one eats at only 20% efficiency vs implants that restore chewing efficiency to the same of your natural teeth. With implants you eat without the pain you experience from a denture rocking and irritating nerves and gum tissue.

Dental implants last a lifetime and other solutions such as bridges or dentures only a decade or so – implants often turn out to be the best investment over the long term.
