How Safe Are Dental Implants in Mexico

Many people looking for a cost-effective solution for their oral needs search online and find that people go abroad to get their dental work done. Many patients looking for dental implants in Mexico find they can get the same implant brand at a discounted cost.

Thousands of Americans have problems with their teeth, cannot eat the right food, or lose their ability to bite. The lack of teeth is a problem that can become an obstacle for your everyday activities and your self-esteem level, as not being able to eat correctly or chew the foods you like could become a problem for your daily life.

Additionally, when you lose a tooth, if you leave it unattended, the bone in the area will start shrinking with time, damaging its integrity.

Dental implants in Mexico have the same quality as those placed in the United States.

Dental Implants Mexico


It is essential to fully understand that the dental implants in Mexico are the very same brands, procedures,s and protocols your US dentist uses. We only use imported brands such as Nobel Biocare, Zimmer, Straumann, etc. After reading all the information we provide you below, you can fully understand how dental implant placement works and what happens when one or several dental implants are inserted into your jawbone.

Regardless of the number of dental implants you need, within a few hours, you can walk out of our dental clinic in Cancun with your All On four dental implants and temporary teeth that will be your replacement until you return to your second trip for the loading of those implants with a fixed hybrid titanium/porcelain bar or full dental implants bridge (for the permanent dentures).

Teeth Implants Frequently Asked Questions
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small titanium screws that act as a replacement root for your tooth. They function as an anchor to permanently replace the teeth' roots. They function like a screw-like anchor to hold permanent replacement teeth that feel, function, and look like your teeth. All the dental implants used at our dental clinic in Cancun (we only use imported brands of implants, such as Zimmer, Bio Horizons, Nobel Biocare, Zimmerman, etc.) are designed to contribute to the osseointegration process that takes in your jawbone after the screw has been placed. The osseointegration will make the implant and the bone fuse, providing a solid anchorage in your maxilla or jawbone, and avoiding slipping or ill-fitting dentures.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
People with healthful gums and good bone structure, volume, and narrowness are good candidates for keeping the implants sturdy and in place. People who smoke, people with bad hygiene habits, or people with chronic gum disease will have a higher risk of losing those implants after the placement. Implant failure means that once the screw is inserted, we need to wait for the natural body reaction, and in some cases (5%), the dental implant cannot fuse with your jawbone. Most people are good candidates for dental implants, depending on the density, as long as you have enough bone. You can always use a bone graft or a sinus lift if you lack some bone. To be sure, take a panoramic X-ray back home and send it to us before your dental vacation.
Can extractions be performed during the same session that implants are placed?
Yes, they can be performed in the same session when you place the implants. Since the implants are placed on the ridge of the bone with the help of surgical guides, we only use the latest technology. Also, bone grafts and sinus lifts can be performed in case you need them.
How Many Teeth Can Be Replaced?
You can have full-mouth dental implants. You can replace one tooth or the entire mouth, depending on your needs. When the entire mouth is replaced, 4 to 6 dental implants must be inserted in your maxilla or jawbone.
Dental Implants Vs. Bridge, which one do you need?
Zirconia bridge with implants Bridge with implants.

Dental implants do not require reducing other teeth like a tooth-supported bridge. Nearby teeth are not altered to support it. Leaving them intact is better because long-term oral health is improved. Also, individual dental implants allow easier access between the teeth, and this improves oral hygiene. Titanium-based tooth replacements can be rooted within the jawbone to support dental reconstruction. Such a tooth would look and feel just like a natural tooth. If more than one tooth is missing, you will need multiple implants. Some people might need implant-supported bridges, dental crowns, or other types of dentistry.
What Happens During a Dental Implant Procedure?
Tooth Implant placement surgery. Dental surgery for implants is a simple one for our expert doctors. A screw-like dental implant is placed into the missing tooth's socket. After the implant is placed, the osseointegration process takes place in your mouth and will be ready to be loaded with its abutment and crown or with the All On 4 permanent dentures bar. It takes from four to six months for the jawbone to be able to secure the permanent denture.
The complete dental implant process is a two-stage process. The first step is having the titanium screw placed in your maxilla or mandible through a surgical placement. Your jawbone will be drilled (we use surgical guides), and the screw will be placed; then, a temporary replacement tooth will be fitted. Once the dental implant is set on your jawbone, the gum will start healing, and the osseointegration process begins. The natural osseointegration process will take at least 4 to six months. Bone density is something that should always be considered.

To understand how dental implants work, look at it as the foundation of a building. The process could be compared to creating a building to understand dental implant placement. The structure above the ground would be the crown, and the foundation or the underground system would be the implant. The foundation will support the building above, the same way the implant helps the height.
What Happens After the Osseointegration Process?
Tooth Implant Xray This X-ray shows the correct tooth implant placement, where the osseointegration process occurs.

After the osseointegration waiting time (around 4 to 6 months), the dental implant is loaded with an abutment (the connector between the screw and the crown) and a porcelain or zirconia crown. The abutment helps to keep the porcelain crown secured to the dental implant. If you are only replacing one tooth, the replaced crown will be matched for the rest of your teeth. If you plan to have full-mouth dental implants, the complete set of teeth can be designed any way you want.

The osseointegration process is essential because if the screw fuses to the bone correctly, it will provide a steady foundation to support an entire upper or lower bridge, a titanium/porcelain bar part of the All on 4 dental implants.
Dental Implants Surgery Hurts?
Pain during dental implant surgery is controlled with local anesthesia or sedation if needed; we will do our best to make it a painless procedure with little discomfort. You will still feel some soreness over the first week. We provide all prescriptions for painkillers, anti-inflammatories, and antibiotics.
How is this treatment divided?
The procedure is divided into two stages (Same for single dental implants or All On 4): FIRST TRIP TO CANCUN: This is where the dental implants are placed through a minimally invasive procedure. You will get temporary teeth; it doesn't matter if it is for one tooth or full mouth implants while we wait for the integration process. We recommend you stay in Cancun for at least five full days in this procedure.
SECOND TRIP TO CANCUN: After four to six months, you will return to Cancun. The temporary tooth or denture will be removed and loaded, either with an abutment and a crown or with a permanent porcelain/titanium bar. How do All On 4 dental implants work? The loading of a tooth implant with the abutment.
What can I expect from dental implant recovery?
After the surgery, you could have mild pain and swelling, which is normal, and it usually goes away after three days and will be addressed with painkillers and anti-inflammatories we will prescribe. We do not recommend heavy exercise or taking the sun directly during the next three days after the placement. After those three days, you do any activity you want! Dental implant rehabilitation results will usually vary from person to person. However, it is expected that the screw will have a correct fusion or osseointegration to your jawbone. After the bone has fused to the screw, you can load the implants with a crown or a hybrid bar for the permanent dentures. The final result of permanent dentures is a device that looks and feels like your teeth.
Is the surgery a complicated one?
Not at all. It varies from person to person, but dental implants are used widely around the globe. We only use the latest technology and surgical guides. A small titanium post is inserted into the missing tooth's bone socket. The jawbone will heal and grow around the implanted base, securely anchoring it into your jaw. This should take between 6 and 12 weeks. Next, a connector post is attached, and then the dentist will make impressions of your teeth and bite and base the model of the new teeth on those. A replacement tooth, or crown, is then attached to the implanted connector post.
How successful is this procedure?
Although the success rate varies depending on the whereabouts in the jaw where the implants are placed, the success rate of this procedure is around 98%, and anyone healthy enough for a routine dental extraction can be considered for this type of surgery, although if you are a heavy smoker, having radiation therapy to the head or neck area or suffering from a chronic disease like heart disease or diabetes, you will need to be individually evaluated.
What Are The Most Common Dental Implants Problems?
This is the most successful procedure in modern dentistry, with an average success rate of 95%. Common dental implants problems may include infection (which is rare but could happen if you have poor oral hygiene and if you do not finish your rounds of antibiotics); implant breakage is also quite unusual, especially if the proper implants brands and sizes are chosen, and the correct number of screws are successfully placed to provide good support, especially on the All On 4 dental implants cases.
Dental implant failure appears more regularly in heavy smokers, as the heat in the mouth, the nicotine, and all the toxic substances inhibit the body's natural healing process. Remember that heavy or regular smokers' dental implant success rate can drop significantly from 95% to 50% or even 70%.

When having the All On 4 dental Implants, remember those implants support the bite force and will act as an anchorage between your mouth and the porcelain/titanium bar designed precisely for the full mouth implants. There is absolutely nothing warranted in the medical field, but in the case of dental implants, there is a 2% chance of rejection. If that is your case, the implant must be removed. In smokers, the chances of losing a dental implant are higher because of all the damage tobacco causes. Also, your daily habits and oral hygiene are crucial factors in your dental implant healing process.
What Are Mini Dental Implants?
Snap On Dentures Vs Implant Dentures, Which one is really better for your oral condition? Both systems use different types of dental implants. The All-On-4 uses regular-size implants while the mini implants are for the Snap On Dentures.Mini Dental Implants were once designed as temporary devices for oral rehabilitation. These mini dental implants are now used for Snap-on Dentures, especially for people with low bone density or narrow bone where the implants should be placed. A denture adapted with O-rings can be designed to get attached to those Snap On Dentures, mini implant retained dentures. The Snap-On Dentures are tailored and get anchored to several mini dental implants previously inserted in your jawbone.

How To Take Care of Your Dental Implants?
waterpickDaily brushing, flossing, Waterpik (water floss), and a check-up with your dentist every six months should be part of your new oral hygiene habits, as dental implants need to be treated and cleaned as if they were your natural teeth. With the proper care, dental implants are meant to last a lifetime. Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth, including regular dental checkups, brushing, and flossing.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
The average price of dental implants in the United States can be up to $5,000 US. The cost of dental implants in the United States will vary in each state; big cities will have higher prices. Americans need dental care at fair prices without compromising any quality standards. Dental implants in Mexico have the same quality with a price tag that you can pay without sacrificing your finances. We must mention that we only use imported brands for dental implants, all FDA-approved. Your home dentist or any dental implant center in the United States uses the same implant.
