Lured by substantial savings on expensive procedures such as dental implants, Mexicali is a popular medical and dental tourism destination, catering for a huge influx of patients from North America. This up-and-coming city is already an established business center, and its hospitality and modern facilities keep visitors coming back to enjoy its varied amenities.
Mexicali has plenty of distractions to keep its visitors occupied. Extensive shopping with malls, department stores and boutiques are found throughout the city. Its restaurants are plentiful and varied with a diverse international cuisine.
Mexicali is also home to the oldest Chinese community in Mexico, La Chinesca, which houses an abundance of Chinese (or more specifically Cantonese) restaurants. High-end hotels, bars and pulsating clubs present endless options for night-owls, while in the daytime more sedate interests such as freshwater fishing and golf can be pursued. You will also discover nearby areas of interest, such as the appealing town of San Felipe and the Guadalupe Canyon.
Dental implants are one of the most expensive dental procedures, and patients may be justifiably cautious about having implants abroad. At Dental Departures we aim to take the mystery and guesswork out of finding a suitably qualified dentist by ensuring we rigorously background check all our dentists before we list them. That way, you can be sure that when you search our site for a Mexicali dentist specializing in implants you will be presented with experienced, quality-checked dentists.
Dental implants are usually carried out in two stages, so for patients along the California or Arizona borders, Mexicali is convenient for return dental work. Furthermore, if you need to attend for multiple visits, the cost savings are significant, particularly if multiple implants are required.
There are three parts in a dental implant (the implant, the abutment and the crown), the insertion of which is carried out in two stages. The first stage involves the placing of the implant in the jaw bone. This is usually carried out in one day, but you may need to factor in around 3 or 4 days for x-rays during and after the implant placement.
The second stage takes place around 6 months after the implant insertion. By this time the implant should be firmly embedded in the bone and all the necessary healing processes complete. Your dentist will then insert the abutment into the implant which attaches to the crown or false tooth to complete the implant. Again, this can be completed in 1 day but you will need to be around for 7-10 days for x-rays and to ensure everything is as it should be.
Additional time may be required for the implant procedure following a tooth extraction, or if a bone graft or sinus lift is required if a patient suffers from bone loss. Potentially, these scenarios will result in longer healing times, sometimes up to 12 months, before the second stage of the implant procedure can be carried out.
Dental implants with abutment and standard crown in the United States cost around $3,900. In Mexicali, dental implants start at $950.
Mexicali offers patients an affordable and permanent way of replacing missing teeth - while being an easily accessible destination for US and Canadians to travel to.
