Dental implants are ideal for people with good general oral health. There great for situations where a person has lost a tooth due to periodontal disease, an injury or many other reasons.
What is a Dental Implant?
A Dental Implant is an artificial “Root” like device that is put into place by a periodontitis; it is made of titanium and is used to support restorations that resemble a tooth or a group of missing teeth. They can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including Crowns, Implant supported bridges, or Dentures.
The Dental Implant procedure
Dental Implants are not a quick fix and will take several months to complete. First the small titanium device is placed in the Jawbone. It will take about 3 to 4 months for the dental implant device to become integrated with the Jawbone. During these 3 to 4 months of healing time the bone will grow around and attach its self the dental implant device.
After this healing process you will return to Dr. Mexico – Tijuana Dentist Center in Tijuana Mexico, and your dentist will attach a permanent prosthetic tooth to the Dental Implant device, leaving you with a beautiful restored smile.
Depending on your individual situation, you may need more than one Implant. Multiple Dental Implants can be placed in one office visit.
What’s the Cost?
Dental Implants can be a spendy procedure, especially in the United States. The average cost for one Dental Implant in the United States is $3,600 to $4,600 per tooth. In Tijuana Mexico one Dental Implant will only cost about $1,200 per tooth. This price does include the placement of the Dental Implant device as well as the Abutment placement. The Abutment is used to connect the prosthetic tooth to the Dental Implant.
