        I know some guys who went through that process, overall they did a pretty good job and the price was cheaper by half, but still it sounds kinda scary to do your entire mouth in a foregin muslim country completely surrounded by turks.

      Just go to Mexico or Korea. Thais don't know wtf they are doing when it comes to your teeth. In Korea it's about 1/4 the price of Canada and the US and even better quality. In Mexico it's like 1/8 and they do a pretty good job but not better than the US.

    I went to Los Algodones Mx to get work done back in 2018-9. I was a drug addict for years and after I got cleaned up, I needed work on my teeth. I went to several dentists here in the Philadelphia area and they all said I wasn't a great candidate to get all my teeth pulled and get all-on-4, but they all gave me estimates for total moth rehab at about 24k total...included 4 implants and a couple root canals and filling redo's. I went to Mexico and even with the costs of travel and time off, I figured my total outlay was about 19k...pretty big savings...had to go for three separate weeks over about 8 months for total work.
    Overall, the dentists there are just as good as American, but the big problem is if there is a problem, you may be stuck in no mans land.
    Its worth it if you get alot of mouth work done, or you live fairly close to the border....if you have to travel far and you don't need alot of work, it may be just as good to get the work at home.

      Thanks for the tip. I was considering Mexico too but I've heard horrible stories of drug gangs and I decided not to. I was offered all-on-4 by at least two local clinics here in NC but the prices are too high. I consulted in (sent panoramic X-rays) Europe and they said all-on-6 is better. American dentists see lazy cuz the 4 option is easier although not necessarily the most recommended. Unfortunately I lost most of my upper teeth in my teens-20's due to bad care and genes. I have to remove my left 5 and put the all-on one solution. Have checked in Turkey but would like to hear other people experience. Thanks

      People on the Internet have warned about scammy dentists in Los Algodones, but I have known many people IRL in the snowbird community who have gotten work done down there, and never heard anything negative. Stands to reason that any shady operations, if they did exist, would get run out of town in short order.
      Cartels are the least of your concern as a tourist, unless you are a drug-dealing Black person cruising into Matamoros or another cartel hotspot with your drug-dealing Black person friends in a tinted-window minivan to see a "doctor".

      I got a severely impacted wisdom tooth removed in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. Was pretty happy with the procedure, it was quite the ordeal but the guy knew his shit. Paid under $300 for the procedure, $25 for the initial consultation and $25 for the X-ray (in a different town). USD equivalent in pesos. Had to go back to get the "soluble" stitching removed two weeks later, another $25. The city is safe, easy to access from the USA, and very pleasant in winter. In summer, it is a fricking furnace.

          You act like Los Algodones is Tijuana. Algondones exists entirely, 100% for its dental tourism. That's the entire town. It has the most dentists per square mile of anywhere in the western hemisphere. If you live in America within driving distance of Yuma, AZ it's a walk right across the border.

          Do you live in fear of going outside in your town because of what goes on in Philadelphia? What goes on in Sinaloa (Mexican State) is irrelevant to Cancun/Los Algodones. Those regions live and die on tourism and pay what it costs to keep the cartels out of their business. If you want work done your two major choices in Mexico are Algondones and Cancun that's where pretty much all of the clinics that cater to Americans/Canadians have set up shop. I got $7500 (quote in hand from an American scam artist/dentist) worth of dental work done for $1900 in MX. Travel was $1000 so I'm still waaaay the frick ahead. Very happy with the work and it's been great for years. American dental prices are so fricked these people are out of their minds with their prices. Dentistry is literally the oldest medical profession in existence, it's not THAT difficult to justify their prices.

          I went to Los Algodones Mx to get work done back in 2018-9. I was a drug addict for years and after I got cleaned up, I needed work on my teeth.

            Absolutely true. But not only that, any medical procedure is way fricking out of reach for anyone with a mediocre job. I don't why Americans accept this shit. It's the only country where the medical profession is profit-oriented. Dental and health care patients are suppose to fund doctors' greed and luxurious life styles.

              Get off your soapbox. Dental care isn't free even in the "free healthcare" countries of Canada and Western Europe. They have dental tourism just the same as America does. The point being I can at least conceptualize that nurses and hospital beds and surgery equipment and rooms are expensive. Dentistry is an hour/hour and a half in a chair and he's done. There is no excuse for demanding $6000 to root canal and crown a tooth, you're just being a homosexual at that point.

              10K for an all-on-4 in Mexico is a bit too much imo. That same procedure is about 4500K in Turkey.

              Good for you but Turkey is three times as much in cost to travel from America as it is to go to Mexico. I didn't say it was the cheapest option on planet Earth. But for the western hemisphere it's a good destination. You can go much cheaper even in Mexico. I paid the premium to deal with a gringo catering clinic that provided all transportation, all spoke English, free consultations etc. If you're spicier in spirit and speak spanish well I'm very certain you can find more 'local' dentists that will do the work for less. I'm fine with what I paid, 1/4th to roughly 1/5th of my local dentist for better quality materials.

            I should have been more specific. An all on 4 would've definitely been much cheaper than the piecemeal work I eventually got done, but the dentists said I would need to get alot of good teeth pulled as well as the bad ones, and they all recommended against this...plus my implants were bridges, not just single teeth, so that increases my price...but youre right that the all ons are getting pretty cheap and I know a couple people that got them and love it.

        ...is a LARP. Virtually everyone in Colombia is somewhere on the mestizo spectrum, apart from the Afro-Colombians, who were racially isolated for most of Colombian history. Spanish settled in the Colombian highlands in the mid 1800s, bred with the local inhabitants as Spanish do, then further floods of Spanish immigration in the late 1800s bleached out the mestizos.

              They’re not really white. Even the palest people will generally have some admixture that makes them identifiable to whites as “Latinos.” I’ve met several Chileans, by contrast, who were indistinguishable from Nords. Colombia supposedly has communities of rural Germans like that, but I never saw any while I was there.

          Bogotá alone is something like 500 years old. That said, yes most of them will have mixed features. There are quite a few with Middle Eastern ancestry in Bogotá as well.

          Well-educated, white-passing Colombians, besides being overly haughty, are probably competent enough to keep civilization running. The issue is that they have to deal with the mestizos breeding out of control. They’re similar to the Mexicans in that regard. The result is that you get pockets of high-functioning society being forced to share political, economic, and civil infrastructure with violent morons. So a lot of those people leave if they have the opportunity because they get tired of being robbed.

    Ok., here's the deal: An all on four in Antalya, Turkey costs $4.3K aprox. including bone graft if needed. Same operation in the US is 20K and no bone graft is envolved, they will place implantas at an angle to avoid it. Of course, flight and hotel costs of two visits is about 2.5k more, taking it up to about 7k. Is it worth it?

    I always go to the dentist for checkup and professional cleaning when I visit home (Romania). The dental work quality is amazing because its privatized. Sure, if you go to a state hospital, you're really gambling with your health, but dentists are always private practices you pay for out of pocket for whatever you need done. I used to pay 32$ for full checkup, plaque cleaning and professional brushing. After inflation its now 42$.

    My dad smoked a lot and at age 70 just got new teeth and he paid like 4000$. I'm talking top and bottom, the whole thing.

    Dental tourism is common, literally just ask your airbnb host on their favorite dentist in the city

      Yeah everyone learned about that "trick" 10-15 years ago and the waitlists for them are literal years long now and you obviously have to live next to a dental college of which they don't grow on trees. And as the other guy said a lot of the time you can't just go there and ask to be put on a list anymore it's by referral only. And Mexico will still be cheaper especially if you want the latest and greatest like zirconia and not porcelain fused metal they're still hocking like it's 1968 but charging you thousands for it.

    Listen. Dentists are like lawyers. If you need work done and you can get insurance they will date the bill to next year. Or offer them to pay cash. I've been doing this for a decade.

And they'll know other people as well. if you get a good one he'll also know a guy who does implants or anything. I've been with my dentist my whole life, he's slimy, but still a bro with stuff like this.

    Live in Cambodia and just had an impacted wisdom tooth pulled.
    Cost $200 and went as smoothly as possible. Went back to get the stitches out, and the dental assistant was the only on there. She kept rubbing against me and touching my face with both hands and saying “just bit more sir”

    Reminder that Bourdain was a degenerate that said white people dying out was the only solution.

    His greatest accomplishment in life was ending it.

      He also killed himself because he got cucked by some slimey European prostitute. People who do heroin write good books and make good music but their personal lives are always pathetic

    I live in Italy and stopped using (incompetent and expensive) local dentists more than two decades ago, nowadays it's either Greece or Romania
