Taking care of one’s teeth is not easy to everyone. The simple part involves brushing and regularly flossing to keep the teeth and gums healthy.
However, not everyone is blessed with perfectly aligned pearly whites. Most people require dental work in order to achieve aesthetically-appealing teeth and give them more confidence to smile.
Unfortunately, dental work is not exactly affordable.
It takes many years for dentists to train and master this science so it’s natural for them to charge high rates when they perform dental work. Braces, retainers, crowns and dentures all cost a lot but they are vital to achieving good teeth and a perfect smile.
It is interesting to note though that there are countries that are known for affordable dental work. These are not fly-by-night dental clinics and aesthetic centers which do you more harm than good. These are reputable establishments run by dentists who studied and passed the requisite licensure exams. The only reason why they’re more affordable is because labor is generally cheaper in these countries, not to mention the price of materials is also lower compared to other countries.
India is one of the countries which offer cheap dental work and procedures. If you need to have a dozen teeth filled, crowns or dentures made, or need to get braces, it would be wise to schedule a trip to the country and have them all done there.
We’ve also included the Philippines, Mexico, Panama, Thailand, Hungary and Romania in our list of countries to go to for cheap dental work in an infographic.
