Cost of Deep Cleaning Your Teeth Abroad

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

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 dentists abroad 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.

Men Too Have Ticking Clocks

New Study Shows Fertility Decline with Increasing Age in Males

Now, a recent study reports that semen volume, sperm motility, and the rate of fertilization diminish with age in men. The findings of the study are published in the recent issue of the journal, Reproductive BioMedicine Online.
