Dental implants provide patients with augmented eating comfort, esthetics, and confidence.
They stimulate jawbone growth and stop the process of absorption, which starts when your body detects that teeth are missing and no calcium is needed in the jawbone area.
Thus preventing your jaw from getting a sunken appearance.
If you have lost all of your teeth and require more implants, your restoration options may include snap-on dentures, All on 4 treatment, and 3 on 6 procedures.
On average, we recommend a minimum stance of 10 days, to start with the process and to follow up on any complications. It’s important to mention, you will need to make two trips for an effective treatment procedure; the first one is specifically for your dental evaluation and the surgery phase. The second one, which is about four to six months after, will be fully focused on the restorative phase.
Before placing the implants, the surgeon will carry out an extensive diagnosis using X-rays, panoramic photos of your mouth, a 3D CBCT scan, surgical guides, and/or the Navident system.
We’ll place the dental restoration that will be permanently supported and secured by implants on each side.
NOTE: Prices can vary depending on your dental condition, type of restoration chosen, and/or additional procedures required.

In Mexico, dental implants cost up to 70% less than in the US. Why? Because in Mexico most dental schools are run by the government and dentists don’t graduate with have academic debts, so they don’t need to charge as much. Nevertheless, there may be slight price variations depending on the patient’s dental health and the materials and technologies used.
No, dental implants are usually placed under local anesthesia and the surgery is minimally invasive. Besides, pain management medication is prescribed after the procedure. During the 4 to 6 month period following the surgery, which is the time implants take to fuse with your bone, there is no pain either. However, some sort of discomfort, swelling, or even minimal bleeding is expected for one or two days after the surgery.
On average, the length of a stay in Mexico for implants treatments normally includes two 7 to 14 day trips separated by a four to six month osseointegration period. Your first trip will include a dental evaluation and the placement of the implants into your jawbone. Then, 4 to 6 months later, you must come back to Cancun to get the dental restoration placed. Generally, you will wear a temporary denture during the osseointegration period.
It depends on many factors, such as your budget, jawbone density, and aesthetic goals. Dentures are a quicker, inexpensive solution, but they don’t prevent your jawbone from receding, which causes shrinkage of the bone and can produce a sunken jaw appearance. In case you are on a budget but still want an implant supported dental restoration, Snap On Dentures can be the ideal choice.
Dental implants and dental restorations won’t suffer from cavities, however it is important to take care of them by following regular oral hygiene habits, such as brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist from time to time. When taken care of adequately, dental implants can last many years. There are patients that have had their implants in place for more than four decades!
Healthy jawbone and gums are crucial for getting dental implants. Patients with low jawbone density may require bone graft treatments before implants. Heavy smokers, people who suffer from heart conditions and patients with periodontal disease are not candidates either. Regardless of your age, getting dental implants depends on the health of your gums and jawbone density, that’s why our dentists will provide you with an extensive oral evaluation before undergoing any dental work.
Twenty days prior to an implants surgery, quit smoking and drinking alcohol. Ask a practitioner if you must stop taking any prescription and inform us about what medicines you take. Anti-inflammatories, anti-coagulants, and vitamin E supplements can cause excessive bleeding during surgery, so you must discontinue them. Eat fresh pineapple and take a multivitamin tablet.
We suggest you rely on a soft diet before and after a dental implants surgery. Try to get protein supplements such as Ensure or Boost, along with soups, broths, gelatin, yogurt, eggs, fish, mashed potatoes, cottage cheese, ice cream, and well-cooked pasta. During the two days following the surgery, avoid physical efforts and hot substances.
