For North American patients your options may include a holiday in one of Mexico’s beautiful resorts such as Cancun or Puerto Vallarta, but the border towns also offer the opportunity of traveling for your treatment in a day trip, which may be more convenient.
Dental implants are a specialist procedure, but there are many well-qualified dentists throughout Mexico who have the training, expertise and qualifications to carry out the treatment. Cross-border training and the fact that many dental clinics who treat international patients often have incredibly high standards means patients can rely on standards to be just as good as they would expect at home.
High competition ensures dentists not only deliver fantastic care, but that they are able to demonstrate they can do so in order to attract patients in the first place. You will find many have professional memberships with recognized overseas organizations, including the American Dental Association and the international congress of oral implantologists.
Patients will also discover that many dentists offer guarantees on their work, which is not something that dentists at home usually do. This is an added peace of mind so that if something does go wrong you will be able to get it put right.
By far, the major reason for traveling to Mexico for dental implants is the significantly reduced costs. The cost of one implant in Mexico can be thousands of dollars less than at home – and even with travel and accommodation expenses can still work out to be more cost-effective. Along with the Dental Departures price guarantee you can be confident of receiving the very best price for your dental implant treatment.
There are three parts to a dental implant – and the procedure to fit them is usually done in two separate visits. For some patients it may entail three separate trips if a sinus lift is required to make the jawbone viable to receive the implant.
The implant itself will be fitted on your first visit. The procedure involves the implant being inserted into your jawbone. This will be done by your dentist making an incision into your gum and then drilling a hole in the jawbone to fit the implant into. Once the implant has been inserted the gum will be stitched over and you will return home to wait for the healing process to take place. Over this time the implant and jaw bone will fuse together in a process called osseointegration. Once this is complete your implant will provide a strong and stable ‘root’ for your false tooth (crown) to be attached to. Healing times vary – it could be as little as 3 months, or as much as 12.
On your next trip the other two parts of the implant will be placed – the crown and the abutment. The abutment is a post that is simply used to join the crown to the implant.
This procedure is a fairly expedient process done in a matter of hours. Firstly, your gum will be opened up and the implant exposed. The abutment will then be inserted and the crown fixed to this.
Your dentist will require you to attend for several appointments over the next 7-10 days just to check that everything is fine with the implant and to monitor that things are as they should be.
The average cost of a titanium dental implant with abutment and standard crown in the US is $3,900. In Mexico the average price is $1,200.
Dental implants are an expensive procedure, but they look, feel and act in exactly the same way as your own tooth. At a third of the price or less in Mexico, the trip for many patients is definitely worth it.
