Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth – and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.
Millions of people experience tooth loss — often attributed to tooth erosion, periodontal disorder, or injury. For several years, bridges and dentures were the only dental treatment choices accessible for those with damaged teeth.
Dental implant surgery is an operation that substitutes broken or absent teeth with porcelain teeth that appear and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants in Los Algodones Mexico are inserted in the jawbone where they act as the origins of lost teeth. The implants do not slip, create harm, or trigger pain since the titanium in the implants fuses with your jawbone.
Because of the tremendous benefits they provide, dental implants in Mexico are gaining popularity. Dental implants provide:
- Improved appearance
- Enhanced speech
- Adjusted comfort
- Easier eating
- Improved self-esteem
- Improved oral health
What is a Dental Implant?
Three million people in the United States have implants, a number that is growing by 500,000 annually.
Types of Dental Implants
Endosteal, subperiosteal, and zygomatic are three popular types of dental implants in Mexico you may choose.
1. Endosteal Metabolism
The most prevalent dental implant are endosteal implants. Patients need a robust and stable jawbone to attach to the base. The implants are posts with a placeholder that are formed like screws. They bring the fake teeth into the jaw on which they are placed.
It needs a little longer to recover after the treatment is completed. It takes time to fuse to establish a fortress together. If it is cured, it is possible to put the fake teeth on the post to blend in with the existing teeth.
2. Subperiosteal Implants
Subperiosteal implants sit on the bone’s edge and beneath the gum rather than locked into the jawbone.
With a post fixed to it, a metal brace is mounted under the gum. The gum grows along with the frame for adjustment. The fake teeth that emerge from the jaw are fixed to the poles.
This technique is only used where the patient may not have adequate jawbone to place an implant or if the person in question clearly may not want to undergo extensive dental surgery to restore the bone to the region.
3. Zygomatic Implants
The least popular form of a dental implant at your discretion is a zygomatic implant. It is the most complex treatment that can only be undertaken if the endosteal implant’s jawbone is not adequate. Instead of the jawbone, the device is inserted into the cheekbone of the recipient.
Dental Implant Materials
LUX only uses FDA-approved Titanium dental implants and porcelain bridges. We do not use Acrylic implants for several reasons. Acrylic does not have the aesthetics of other products, they tend not to last as long, can wear down, and require additional costs and maintenance over their lifetime.
Titanium implants are a tried and true type of implant and are strong and resistant to cracks and fractures. With titanium implants, your dental surgeon will place the base (the implant) and once stable and secure in the jaw structure, will add the tooth restoration, with more flexibility in placement for a very natural-looking placement.
Below are the explanations why titanium, as the most effective dental implant content in history, stays stronger than zirconia.
- In a two-piece scheme, titanium implant placement products and their models can be created. Independent abutments lie and attach to the replacement tooth.
- It is correct and suits the human anatomy exactly.
Endosteal implant’s jawbone materials incorporate all post and abutment into having one device. This eliminates the fear that bacteria will hide and damage the gum.
Dental Implant Procedure
Your implant dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth, including taking X-rays or 3D images, discuss the various implant options and develop a plan for your implant surgery. If you have previously had dental work, our team in Mexico will review the x-rays.
Dental implants in Mexico takes 2-3 visits. At your first scheduled appointment, your implant dentist will place the dental implant in your jawbone where your tooth is missing. Although each patient’s experience is unique, most people find they experience less pain and discomfort than they expect, and typically return to work the next day. Local anesthesia or IV sedation can be used to keep you comfortable, depending on the procedure.
Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. During your second appointment, when you have a sturdy base, we will place a connector — known as an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. We then place the crowns to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.
It takes several months to finish obtaining dental implants in Mexico, and it includes two to three stages. Post-implant surgery discomfort is similar to that of any other dental surgery. It may include swelling, bruising, minor bleeding and/or pain, but most patients usually manage any pain with over-the-counter medications.
Depending on the health of your jawbone and your specific needs, your dental implant dentist may suggest some alternative treatment options in addition to the traditional multi-step dental implant procedure.
All-on-4 Dental Implants Mexico
All-on-4 dental implants is an alternative to placing a top or bottom set of replacement teeth, called a full arch. Four dental implants are placed in available bone, avoiding the need for bone grafting. Special abutments are used so that a temporary set of replacement teeth can be placed the same day. You follow a modified diet while the gum tissues heal and the implants bond with your natural bone. After about four months, the permanent replacement teeth will be placed and you can resume a regular diet.
All-on-6 Dental Implants Mexico
The All-on-6 dental implants procedure is used to replace the entire upper or lower set of teeth. This dental procedure is used to restructure a patient’s mouth, generally done when the patients have lost a significant number of teeth. The All-on-6 dental implant procedure creates a permanent prosthesis by using six dental implants. It acts as an anchor for a bridge or over-denture. Six implants are positioned in the lower or upper jawbone to anchor prosthetic teeth in place permanently.
Recover from Dental Implant Surgery
Following a dental implant operation, you can require pain relief or antibiotics. Ask the oral surgeon if pain, irritation, or other conditions worsen in the days following surgery. You can continue to consume soft foods following each step of surgery as the surgical site recovers. Your surgeon would usually use stitches that dissolve on their own. Your doctor eliminates them if your staples do not dissolve on their own.
How Many Years Do Dental Implants Last?
A long-term investment in your oral health is dental implants, but dental crowns do not last indefinitely. Your dental implants will last 25 years if you continue to see a dentist and keep acceptable practices.
The implant screw alone will last a lifespan with regular cleaning, assuming the person gets frequent health assessments every six months. Conversely, the crown typically lasts for around 10 or 25 years until it may need a replacement because of wear and tear.
Cost of Dental Implants in Mexico vs. the USA
Depending on the area and who is doing the operation, the value of a single dental implant can differ.
- For a single dental implant in the USA, it can cost between $3,000-$6,500. This expense covers the insertion surgery with an implant, all parts, and the implant’s crown.
