If you are missing teeth, you should consider dental implants, the best option for treating tooth loss.

Let’s cover the basics of dental implants and why you should come to Tijuana, MX, for affordable, high-quality dental work.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically embedded into the jawbone where a person is missing a tooth or multiple teeth. The implant fuses with the jawbone for stability, a process known as osseointegration.

Once the implant is in place, it can support an individual dental crown, a dental bridge, or even a full set of dentures. It’s an excellent option for treating varying degrees of tooth loss.

Materials Used for Dental Implants

Different types of materials can be used for dental implants. The main three are:

  • Titanium
  • Zirconium
  • Ceramic

All three implant materials above are biocompatible, which allows the osseointegration process to occur. We can discuss the right implant for you as part of the consultation process.

The Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure involves the following steps:

  1. The Initial Consultation - Your initial consultation with our Tijuana dentist will involve an evaluation of your oral health and overall candidacy for dental implants. This is also an opportunity to ask questions and get the answers you’re looking for.
  2. Implant Placement Surgery - During the oral surgery to place the implant, an incision is made on the gum tissue and the implant is anchored into the jawbone. We take all precautions to ensure patients are comfortable and pain-free.
  3. The Initial Healing Period - After the implant is placed, patients will have a healing period that lasts a few months. This allows the implant to fuse with the jawbone and ensure a stable and durable hold.
  4. Placing the Abutment - After the healing period, we then place an abutment on the implant. This abutment connects the implant to the final crown, bridge, or denture.
  5. Placing the Final Restoration - When the patient is ready, the final implant restoration is placed. We take care to ensure the restoration looks natural.

How Much Can I Save by Getting Dental Implants in Mexico?

Dental implant patients at Tijuana Bariatrics can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars on their dental work. We can provide a full price breakdown during a consultation.

Savings like this without a dip in quality are why so many Americans and Canadians are considering medical and dental tourism to Tijuana, Mexico.

Tijuana Bariatrics can meet many of your dental care needs. We offer a wide range of comprehensive dental services, including:

  • Dental Exams and Cleanings: Regular dental checkups and cleanings are essential to improving your overall dental health and wellness.
  • Treatment for Tooth Decay: When treating cavities and tooth decay, we can use fillings, inlays, onlays, or crowns based on the extent of the cavity.
  • Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics): This procedure treats teeth that have been infected, preventing the need for extraction. It consists of removing the infected pulp from the tooth, sterilizing the root canal, and sealing the treated tooth.
  • Tooth Extractions: When a tooth is too damaged to be saved, it may need to be removed. We also perform wisdom teeth extractions for third molars.
  • Orthodontics: Orthodontic treatments correct the alignment of the teeth and jaw. This can be achieved with traditional braces or clear aligners like Invisalign®.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry: Tijuana Bariatrics is proud to offer cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of patients’ smiles. These procedures include teeth whitening, veneers, and tooth-colored dental crowns.
