WEEK FOUR: 7 days after implants a check-up and another set of temporary teeth. Chris drops me off at the Quechan Casino on the California side of the border. Check-up for him, small jackpots for me ;-)
L-R: Dr. Hector, Chris of the pretty smile, Daniel (Dental Asst) & Dr. Krystal
WEEK FIVE: Final check-up (not necessary but recommended) and last set of temporary teeth that will last until we return in 4-6 months for the next phase of this process. After a dozen visits in a month Chris is happy to be out of the dental chair for awhile, but we’ll miss Krystal & Hector.
The entire process will take about a year. In the end, Chris will have a completely restored mouth for less than 1/3rd of the cost quoted in the States for caps, crowns, bridges and partial dentures. Cost and service will most likely keep us coming back for our dental check-ups & cleaning in the future.
Los Algodones is typical of many small Mexican Towns. Although the number one industry is dental, there are a number of optical businesses offering really inexpensive prescription lenses with one day or less turnover and Farmacias that carry name brand and generic pharmaceuticals at extremely discounted prices.
