Information about Dental Implants
When considering traveling for dental implants in US-Mexico border areas, you may want to familiarize yourself with what dental implants are. Some information you should know is:
- Dental implants are long-term tooth replacements composed of titanium metal screws that are inserted in the jawbone to replace natural tooth roots.
- Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants do not decay or slip, allowing you to talk, smile, and eat comfortably.
- Dental implants can replace multiple teeth without affecting the teeth that they border, unlike other dental bridges
How to Get Dental Implants in Algodones
Reaching Algodones from the US
Los Algodones does not have an airport but is a 20 – 30 minute drive from Yuma International Airport, AZ. Alternatively, you can also reach here from Mexicali International Airport, Mexico or San Diego International Airport, CA.
- Many retail outlets accept the US dollar, but it is still recommended to carry Mexican currency, Mexican peso.
- If you’re driving across the border, be aware that only auto insurance purchased through businesses in Mexico is accepted. You can purchase short-term coverage from businesses along the road on the way into Mexico if you’d like.
Dental Implant Procedure and Duration
Dental implant surgery is completed in 1 – 3 visits.
Visit 1: 5 to 12 days
- The dentist will examine your oral cavity and identify the dental implants that are ideal for your case.
- If you are eligible for dental implants, the surgery will be done right away.
- A denture or dental crowns are fitted atop dental implants, giving you fully functional teeth.
- You can begin eating as soon as the anesthesia wears off. Follow the diet recommended by your dentist for uneventful healing of implants.
Visit 2: Up to 5 days
- Visit 2 is scheduled after the implant site is completely healed.
- Porcelain denture is fitted on implants. This denture is aesthetically more pleasing and can also withstand stronger biting forces.
When are 3 visits needed? If your bone quality is poor, you may need another visit for a bone graft surgery before implants are planted. The bone graft surgery will assist bone formation. It may take 4 – 6 months for the bone to form and be ready for supporting dental implants.
