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 have 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.

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 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.

Implant cases, depending on each patient’s specific condition and the different protocols and implant systems and materials that dentists offer. Your dentist will consult with you and agree the best treatment plan, based on your dental health and budget.
