Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants in Mexico are inserted into the areas in the gum where a tooth is missing. The implant itself will act as a natural tooth root.

The procedure chosen at one of our locations in Mexico depends on several factors, such as your dental health, the number of teeth involved and which teeth are replaced. These factors will also determine the total number of visits to the dentist throughout the treatment period.

Securing the Implant

High-tech guided surgical techniques are convenient alternatives to place dental implants in Mexico. This allows you to have the dental implant placed in a single session using keyhole surgery. This new method has significantly simplified the procedure, for both patients and dentists.

This significantly reduces the healing time and the discomfort normally associated with traditional dental implant surgical techniques.

With a traditional process it can take from three to six months. First, the dentist places the dental implant, and it is left to heal and integrate with the jawbone. During the healing period, a temporary prosthesis is placed until the permanent crown is put in place.

Traditional Implant Procedure

To secure the implant in the jaw, dentists pull back the gum to expose the jawbone. After the jawbone is exposed, small holes are created using a dental drill. The titanium implant is inserted into the holes and the gum is closed around the implant using dissolvable stitches.

Gradually as the incisions heal the gum tissue grows around the implant and holds it in place.

The implant is secured into the jawbone and will fuse to the bone within a couple of months, making the implant feel like a natural tooth root.
