Needless to say, optimal oral health and modern dentistry are important because it affects so many facets of our overall physical health and well-being. Nevertheless, American and Canadian patients hit a glass ceiling when they seek sophisticated care, for seemingly inexplicable reasons. The risks of chronic infections from bad root canals, large cavities, missing teeth, cracking teeth, and plaque build-up often lead to other serious health problems. In fact, a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that nearly half of Americans over the age of 30 are suffering from periodontal disease. This is a disease that destroys the jawbone, gums, and teeth.
The best method of addressing these disorders is to replace bad root canals with dental implants and repair large fillings as they erode with ceramic inlay restorations. Using modern dentistry methods and seeing a dentist accustomed to using cutting-edge technology and giving top-notch care can help improve overall oral health.
The Consequences of Outdated Dental Work
The majority of people in the United States and Canada have dental work carried out by older dentists who lack modern tools, modern techniques, and advanced training. Alternatively, dentists who do offer modern dentistry offer prices that are sky high.
Patients may suffer from infections and ongoing irritation after a root canal or as large fillings deteriorate and begin to harbor bacteria.
Any kind of infection in the mouth (including the gums and jaw bone) can lead to oral surgery which, in a worst-case scenario, the infections could spread into the throat and impair speech, singing, eating, and general comfort. Some infections can lead to muffled hearing, pressure in the ears, chronic ear infections, and other irritable problems. The American Dental Association tells us that oral infections are also associated with an increased risk of heart disease, oral cancers, periodontal disease, and halitosis (bad breath).
The Reasons for the Lack of Quality Dental Care in the USA
Many U.S dentists are comfortable relying upon their current skillsets and see no reason to improve their practices with more modern dentistry. They rely almost entirely upon a high volume of low-paying insurance plan flat-rates to cover their overhead. These insurance companies are unwilling to pay more for the quality work that patients need and therefore limit dental care to stone-age tools and techniques.
In addition, patients may fail to visit their dentists regularly for annual cleanings and preventative restorations because their dentists are booked up solid, and their insurance plans are limited. Another major problem is that the low status quo of dental care creates a delusion that if better care were available, then patients would be made aware of it without having to spend time researching for optimal dental solutions.
So, What is the Solution?
The solution for many is to book a low-cost flight for world-class dental care in Lima, Peru. We will connect you with a clinic considered one of the most technologically advanced in all of Latin America and that has a solid reputation.
This trend of dental tourism brings Americans and Canadians the quality of care that only the very wealthy in the U.S and Canada can afford, but for a fraction of the price. Not only will you find English speaking doctors and a world-class dental team, but super-sanitary modern facilities and computer technology which puts to shame many North American dentists.
We will help with every aspect of your trip, including complimentary airport meet-and-greet, transportation to and from appointments, plus accommodation.
Advantages of Modern Dentistry in Peru
Having several 3D CAM CAD computer-made restorations, the same day, in the same clinic, is obviously very beneficial. This saves you the inconvenience of having to wait for a lab to fulfill the order for a ceramic inlay, onlay, crown, or bridge. Porcelain veneers can also be made, as needed, rather than produced by a lab that doesn’t have immediate access to the patient for adjustments and changes. Dental implants are placed as required.
Consultations and treatment planning include specialized 3D x-ray imaging, while restorations are performed on-site by 3D CAD CAM to ensure the most accurate, high precision fit, and superb esthetics without adjustments or extensive sculpting.
