Got missing teeth? Can’t get on with dentures? Would love to fix your smile properly but can’t afford it? Then you sound like the idea candidate for dental implants in Tijuana.
The city is reasonably accessible for North Americans, there is considerable dental expertise there and the prices are at least 50% lower than what your dentist at home charges.
Dental implants are still one of the most expensive dental procedures around. Most people tend to think of them in terms of a single dental implant – which still costs thousands of dollars – but some of the newer full-arch restoration techniques that use multiple implants to permanently hold a fixed bridge cost tens of thousands of dollars, and zygomatic implants are even more expensive.
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the Rolls Royce of teeth replacement. The implant is placed directly into the jaw bone, in the old tooth socket from the missing tooth, and after a few months, the healthy bone tissue grows around the implant, holding it firmly in place – just like a tooth root. Once this process has taken place, a crown (false tooth) is attached to the implant. Your new ‘tooth’ is then ready to go and the procedure is complete.
Your implant(s) will look, feel and act in exactly the same way as your own tooth and no one will be able to tell the difference.
Dental implants do not require any special aftercare – just make sure you maintain good oral hygiene and see your dentist as often as they recommend. It is also recommended that if you smoke, you give up. In fact, many dentists won’t place implants in smokers because smoking increases the chances of them failing.
