Deep Cleaning & Your Dental Implants

Can I Do My Deep Cleaning When I Come To Costa Rica For My Dental Implants?

A few of our clients asked us whether our overseas dental clinics also offer deep cleaning. The answer to this question is ABSOLUTELY! The cost of cleaning your teeth with your local dentist in the U.S. can be quite high, if he or she recommends deep cleaning. It makes perfect sense to have deep cleaning done with our dentists in Costa Rica, when you come for your dental implants. Our dental offices offer deep cleaning and your total savings for all of your dental procedures will be even larger. So, here is some basic information and pricing.

First, allow us to explain how the price of your deep cleaning procedure is determined. The cost of your deep cleaning procedure will depend on two factors, the depth of the pocket(s) and the extent of the area our dental hygienist will have to clean. The depth of the pocket will determine how deep we will need to go to remove the buildup or plaque. As far as the extent of the area is concerned, a human mouth is broken down into four quadrants. Dentists typically charge per quadrant of cleaning they have to do. Depending on these two factors, our dental offices may charge between $200 and $500 per quadrant. MedVacation guarantees 20% savings. Send us the quote from your local doctor and your deep cleaning with us will be 20% less than that.

Please also keep in mind that with more extensive deep cleaning, the dentist will most likely make the area numb so that the process is comfortable for you. The cost of local anesthetic is included in the price. In addition, our dentists may use antibiotic gels and rinse (e.g. chlorhexidine) within the periodontal pocket. This is done to clean the area and remove any unwanted bacteria. As in the case of anesthetic, the cost of these medications is included in the price. And in case you are wondering about what kind of cleaners our doctors use, they use the same ultrasonic cleaners used by your local dental office.

Lastly, if you choose to do your deep cleaning with our dental office, allow yourself an extra day of stay in Costa Rica. The cleaning will take place a day before our dental surgeons put in your implants.
