This is the Guardalavaca Forum

Some years ago when I couldn't get National Health Service dentistry in Swindon UK, I visited Dr Miguel at the Guardalavaca International Clinic. I had a denture made, fitted and still wear it today. Dr Miguel was a kindly and decent dentist, in fact Cuban staff at SRLYM said "he is the best."

However he told me he could not do implants as "the singular X-ray machine was broken" My private dentist in Swindon had 2 X-ray machines. Plus there are shortages for anaesthetics.

Times may have changed but giving up a morning for a denture at £100 quote in UK £700 is one matter.

But would one want to spend part of annual holiday having implants fitted? Where would X-rays be taken? Would there be enough anaesthetics?
