The dental implant is the proper treatment to replace one or more natural teeth that you have lost. Moreover, dental implants in Cancun, Mexico are one of the most common treatments for dental and health tourism in this country. Dentists in Cancun think dental implants are an ideal way to replace missing teeth, and you can get this procedure done at Dentics Cancun saving up to 70% compared to US and Canada prices.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a small titanium or zirconium screw that fits inside the jaw and replaces the root-part of a missing tooth; minor surgery is required to insert the implants. Once the implant is in place, a crown is placed to give you a functional and very realistic-looking prosthetic tooth.
What does a Dental Implant Procedure Involve?
Dental implant surgery generally requires several stages. Each stage may be performed under general or local anesthetic.
The first stage is removing the damaged tooth. Then, if your jawbone is too soft or not thick enough, your dentist may perform bone grafting to create a more solid base for the implant. If you only need minor bone grafting, the implant surgery can be performed on the same day. However, if you need a significant amount of bone graft, the implant surgery may have to be postponed until the transplanted bone grows enough new bone to support the dental implant.
The next stage after the damaged tooth removal and bone graft (if you need one) is placing the dental implant. To do this, your dentist makes an incision to expose the bone and puts the metal implant post deep into the bone. At this stage, you will still have a gap where your tooth is missing. Your dentist will place a temporary denture for appearance, and once the metal implant post is placed, osseointegration begins. This is a process where the jawbone grows into the surface of the implant and can take several months to complete. After osseointegration is complete, your dentist will place the abutment, which is a small connector post that will hold your new tooth. The final stage, after the abutment has been inserted, is placing the crown, which is the tooth-looking part.
Are there alternatives to dental implants in Mexico?
Implant-supported dentures are an alternative if you need to fix a complete upper or lower set of teeth. During this procedure, 4 to 6 implants are placed into your jawbone as a base to attach and stabilize your denture.
What is an all on 4?
An all on 4 is a full arch rehabilitation with only 4 implants that consist of 2 regular implants and 2 tilted implants to a 45-degree inclination.
