Cancun provides the archetypal tropical paradise of sun, sea and sand. At only a few hours flight from the southern United States, it is proving to be a convenient and desirable overseas location to have dental implants. Already an established tourist destination, who wouldn’t be tempted to come here for low-cost dental work and the chance to unwind in this appealing part of the world? 

Picture-postcard vistas present a perfect backdrop to Cancun’s varied activities, particularly water sports, including snorkeling and diving. Exploring ancient ruins of the Mayan culture or discovering new fashions in elegant boutiques, Cancun is a stylish and modern destination. Patients coming here for dental implants will find highly-qualified, expert dentists providing superior quality work in contemporary clinics.  

Why Have Dental Implants in Cancun?

There are a number of different types of implants available, which will determine how many trips you will need to the dentist. Implant procedures are not usually carried out in one visit, so it is important to factor in at least a couple of trips to complete all your treatment. Cancun’s relatively short flight-time from the US means it is a practical proposition to have your dental implants here.

Understandably, we know that having a big and expensive procedure such as having dental implants abroad may seem a little daunting. You may be worried about your dentist's training or qualifications, the hygiene standards at the clinic or whether the equipment and materials are of good quality. Dental Departures can alleviate your worries in some of these areas. We have quality-checked dentists whose qualifications and training has been verified by us. We also carry out onsite visits at our clinics, and if we don’t feel happy about any aspects of their service then we don’t list the clinic on our website.

Furthermore, our dentists in Cancun not only provide you with very competitive prices for your implant procedure, but our best price guarantee means you will get the best price available.  Our high-regarded, best-reviewed clinics include Ocean Dental, Cancun Dental Specialists and Dental Evolution; all provide international patients with exceptionally good services.

Cancun offers its visitors glorious beaches, crystal-clear waters, nearby UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Chichen Itza and Sian Ka’an a multitude of activities along the Riviera Maya, allowing you to do as little - or as much - as you want while you have your dental implant treatment.

How Long do Dental Implants Take in Cancun?

There are a number of different implant procedures available, and the time it will take depends on which procedure you have, and also on your own body’s healing times.

Conventional dental implants usually require two trips over a six to nine month period The first trip requires around three to five days and the return trip somewhat less time. If you are having conventional implants the gums and bone are given two to six months to heal before the implant is placed.

Immediate loading dental implants can be carried out in one trip, although not on the same day. The majority of patients are not candidates for this type of procedure as excellent bone and gum conditions are required.

Mini dental implants are used to support dentures to give them some added stability, or as a temporary solution to support single crowns or bridges. They need to be replaced after several years but are certainly a solution for budget-conscious patients, and they can be carried out in one trip.

While the majority of cases are suitable for immediate placement implants, implant cases vary dramatically, depending on each patient’s specific condition and the different protocols and implant systems and materials that dentists offer. 

How Much Can I Save on Dental Implants in Cancun Compared to the United States or Canada?

Dental implants with abutment and standard crown in the United States cost around $3,900. In Cancun, dental implants start at $852.

Cancun offers dental implant patients the opportunity to enjoy a well-earned vacation in a world-class resort while saving thousands on their dental care costs.
