When you are missing a tooth, you are aware of the damages caused by the lack of teeth and how it affects all your chewing abilities. We receive thousands of emails filled with questions. These questions below are the most frequent.

Please feel free to contact us at any time or complete the form on your right if you have any more inquiries.

Do the dental implants surgery hurts?

Discomfort is not expected as we use local anesthesia to address pain caused by the drilling of your jawbone when the dental implant is inserted. You will be prescribed analgesics, however, if you use harder substances such as codeine please bring it from home as in Mexico we can not prescribe certain components.

Can I be sedated during the dental implants procedure?

We can use IV sedation (Twilight) for your dental implants surgery. We use the services of an anesthesiologist.

For the sedation process, you need to be fasting for at least eight hours before the surgery. You need to let your dental planner know if you want sedation during your surgery. The sedation has an extra cost of 500 US.

Why can’t I have the crown or the bridge (All On 4) load on the same surgery when you place the implants

Because an osseointegration process must be completed. The osseointegration is the natural response of your body when a tooth implant is inserted into the jawbone or in the maxilla.

The titanium screw will fuse to the bone, creating a strong grip and those implants act as posts or roots of a tooth. So that procedure must be completed in order to let the fusion happen. 

 

You can have a temporary overdenture or a temporary crown but the final prosthetic piece comes four to six months after the surgical placement. After the osseointegration process, you will be able to place a dental bridge with implants or a crown.

What dental implants brands do you use?

The very same your home dentist uses. the very same brands: Straumann, Nobel Biocare, Zimmer, Bio Horizons, 3i, Intra-Lock, etc.

We only use common brands as Straumann, Nobel Biocare, Zimmer, Bio Horizons, 3i, Intra-Lock, etc.

If I can not return for the second trip (to load the crown or bridge over those tooth implants) can I have it done back home in the U.S.?

Of course, we will provide you the serial number in case you want to do the second part of the All On 4 or the implanted crown back in the United States.

Any dental implants dentist in the U.S. can rehabilitate what we set here.

How to know how many dental implants do I need?

You have several options to know:


a) X-rays or CT/Scan

Go to an X-Rays facility and get a 3d CT/Scan or a Panoramic X-Ray, scan it and send it to us. (Most accurate quote we can provide)
b) Quote comparison

Go to a dentist back home and get his quote for a full mouth rehabilitation and send us the quote so we can send you a cost comparison.


c) Pictures

This is the least accurate quote we can provide. But many patients send pictures of their teeth anyway and ca give is a general idea of what you need, knowing that when we check you in the clinic we can find bone problems, infections, etc. That’s why x-rays are much better.


With any of these 3 ways,  we can know how many tooth implants you need or what type of procedure is the adequate for you.

Is it safe to have my dental implants in Mexico?

Yes, and here are some of the reasons we have to be proud of our quality of service:

  1. We only use imported brands in all the materials we use. From the implants to the prosthetic work, all the materials we use are crafted in our laboratory with the finest materials available in the market.
  2. We also use the very same protocol as any other dental implants dentist in the United States.
  3. We are the only clinic in the area with a CT/Scan, we use surgical guides on our surgical implant placement.
  4. We own the laboratory. No other dental clinic in the area has the technology we own.
  5. We have U.S. licensed and trained dentists. 

 

Where do you do your prosthetic work?

At our laboratory. We own a full lab (unique in the area), where we craft all the prosthetic pieces, including the ones of the surrounding clinics.

No other dental clinic in Cancun owns a fully equipped laboratory as we do. We have CAD/CAM, milling machines, ovens, laser scanners, etc. Here is where we create the denture implants and any prosthetic work. We also craft most of the dental pieces for the rest of the dental clinics in the Cancun area.

Here is where we create the hybrid bridge and any prosthetic work. We also craft most of the dental pieces for the rest of the dental clinics in the Cancun area.

Will I be able to have a vacation after the surgery?

Yes of course. After the surgery, it is expected to have some mild discomfort the first day. After 48 hours, you will be able to do any activity you please.

You can have a regular vacation in Cancun. There are many activities in Cancun that you can enjoy. This is what dental vacations is all about!

How much the dental implants cost in your clinic?


To check how much you will pay at our clinic, send us an x-ray or your dentist quote so we can send a cost comparison.

There are no hidden costs. Check our dental services price list and you will be charged exactly what you need.

Can the dental implants fail?

Yes, there can be dental implants problems, including the loss of the implant., there is a 5% chance that it could. When we say that a dental implant fails we are referring that the bone did not fuse properly to the titanium screw surgically inserted.

It can fail because maybe the patient did not have the proper hygiene, or the patient had an infection, or the patient is a smoker, etc. In patients that smoke, the chance of losing an implant increases significantly, almost in a 50% chance to lose it. You need to try to stop smoking before having your dental implants surgically inserted.
