For dental implant patients, Cozumel’s relatively short flight time from North America makes it a particularly convenient destination for the multiple appointments most implant procedures require. It is also a classic tropical island paradise, replete with azure-colored waters and fine white beaches–just perfect for relaxing pre- or post-treatment.

The first dental implants were carried out almost 50 years ago, and they are now one of the most popular ways to replace missing teeth.

But here’s the problem for many patients around the world: they are also one of the most expensive dental procedures on the market.

Although one of the main reasons dental patients travel to Cozumel is to take advantage of the cheaper prices, ensuring the quality of the care you receive should always come first. Generally, there is little to be worried about here, providing that you choose an established clinic with dentists specializing in implantology.

Why Have Dental Implants in Cozumel?

Dental implant procedures are usually carried out in two stages, between six months and a year apart. Thus, it is important to factor in multiple visits to your chosen dentist for this procedure.

Even so, with the cost of one dental implant in Cozumel nearly half the price you would expect to pay at home, you will save almost a couple of thousand dollars on one implant alone–which more than enough to pay for round-flights and accommodation. Plan and budget wisely, and you’ll find that it’s worth the trip, particularly if you need multiple implants or additional dental work. The savings can then run into the thousands.

Dental implants are not only the most aesthetically pleasing way of replacing teeth; for some people, having to wear dentures is a real problem for their confidence. Traveling to Cozumel gives you the option to upgrade to higher quality dentistry, such as implants, that you may not be able to afford at home.

The quality of the care is not in any way inferior in Cozumel just because it is cheaper. The same materials used throughout Canada and the United States are obtainable here, and dentists are just as likely to be using the newest dental technologies, ensuring their patients have access to the best facilities currently available.

How Long do Dental Implants Take in Cozumel?

A dental implant usually requires at least two separate procedures. Additionally, you may require a bone graft to support the new implant, which will extend the time required, as well as the cost.

Essentially, the dental implant requires one or two procedures for the insertion of the implant (or tooth root) itself, and another procedure for the crown (replacement tooth) to be fitted to the implant. The insertion of the implant can be done in a day.

After the insertion of the implant, a waiting time (while back home) of between three and six months required for the implant to fuse to the bone (osseointegration). If a bone graft has been performed, this may require additional time of up to six months before the implant is inserted.

When you return, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth to send to the laboratory for the crown to be made. When the dentist has received the crown from the lab you will head back to the clinic to have the crown screwed or cemented on top of the implant.

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

A titanium dental implant with an abutment and standard crown is around $3,900 in the US. The price, on average, patients pay in Cozumel $1,297.

For some examples, prices similar to these can be found at Dental Departures leading Cozumel clinics listed below.

Other options are available, including the hard-wearing and non-metal zirconia, one of the newer materials on the market which costs around half the price in Cozumel, Mexico than it does in the US.
