Brimming with palm-filled beaches, Aztec ruins and Mayan heritage, patients can expect top-notch, inexpensive care at our range of fully background-checked Mexican clinics.

World-class facilities and a burgeoning dental tourism sector ensure many budget-conscious American and Canadian patients benefit from superior, cost-effective dental care—at a fraction of the price.

Why Choose Mexico For Dental Implants?

Mexico’s accessibility and year-round warm climate make it extremely appealing for cross-border patients seeking the same level of care as back homejust for considerably less money.

Affordable rates, convenience and short flights are some of the reasons so many overseas patients travel here for dental implant treatment. In fact, going for just one implant could save you a few hundreds of dollars, while replacing a whole arch of teeth using multiple supporting implants is often over ten thousand dollars less. 

For Southern Californians and Arizona residents, Tijuana and “Molar City” (Los Algodones) offer same-day treatment with return visits just a short drive or flight away. Alternatively, you could combine a stunning vacation to one of Mexico’s beautiful resorts such as Cancun, Playa del Carmen or Puerto Vallarta.

We only work in conjunction with fully-approved, highly-trained implantologists in Mexico, utilizing the latest in terms of dental equipment and premium-branded materials.

Continually staying up-to-date with industry trends, our background-checked partner clinics and dentists normally have international affiliations with professional organizations such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Not only does Dental Departures act as a safety net in case of complications but all our fully-verified Mexican dentists offer warranties on dental care and lab work.

How Long Does Dental Implant Treatment Take?

Your first visit will take less than a day, when the implant(s) is/are inserted into the jaw bone, acting as an artificial, stable tooth root. This is known as the "surgical phase".

An abutment joins the crown to the implant. A crown is an artificial tooth that fits on top of the abutment that is specifically created to match your other teeth in shape and tone.

For other implant procedures where more than one tooth is being replaced, the implants may be used to support a dental bridge or even a whole arch of replacement teeth.

Your follow-up visit will take place between three and six months later, so the bone and implant can fuse together in a process called osseointegration. The abutment and crown are placed on this second trip. For a permanent full-arch restoration, your custom-made dental prosthesis (holding a whole row of replacement teeth) will be attached. 

Different factors will influence the implant completion time, such as whether you require teeth extraction; the strength and density of the jaw bone and the time required for the bone to fuse with the implant.

Note that one exception to the rule is an “immediate implant" procedure,” which can be performed in just a few hours.
