Because dental care is so expensive, many Americans turn to #dental schools or travel abroad. Most tourists for dentistry choose Mexico or Central America.

US prices are sky-high.
* Dental implants are priced at $1900-$2500.
* In some US markets, a #dental implant can cost as much as $4000.
* Add a #crown and the price almost doubles.
* For a full mouth restoration or All on 4 dental implants procedure, estimates range from $50,000 to $80,000.
So patients opt to receive care at dental schools or south of the border.

Some drawbacks of a dental school are:
* the dentist is actually a student;
* the treatment is very slow and drawn out–up to years;
* it may take more than one student dentist.
