Another satisfied client explains the benefits of getting dental implant surgery done in Cancun, Mexico.
A dental implant procedure involves implanting a small titanium post surgically into the jawbone.
An abutment (connecting element) is attached to the implant either at the same time of implant placement or after healing.
Then, the dentist mounts the replacement tooth on the implant.
Standard dental implants are placed in two stages:
The implant is placed in the upper/lower jaw as per the requirement. It is normal to experience swelling or tenderness after the procedure.
During this time, a temporary prosthesis can be worn over the implant site.
Over the next two to six months, the implant and the bone are allowed to bond together to form an anchor for your artificial tooth.
After the implant is fully integrated into the jaw, a crown or a denture is attached on top of the implant.
Types of Implants
i. Single Tooth Replacement: A single dental implant replaces the tooth that has been lost. It functions like a natural tooth and usually has a dental crown on top.
In the long term, a single implant can be more aesthetic and easier to keep clean than a bridge.
ii. Fixed Multiple Tooth Replacement: Multiple teeth are replaced through various implant procedures. Options for fixed multiple tooth replacement include:
|Dental Condition||Implant Solution|
|Toothlessness||All on 4, All on 6, All on 8 full mouth implants|
|Only a few teeth missing in a quadrant||Implants topped with a bridge between real teeth|
|One or two teeth missing||Single implant(s)|
iii. Snap-on Dentures: There are denture options that ‘snaps onto’ your dental implants to offer a more comfortable fit.
The biggest advantage of snap-on overdentures is that they make cleaning easier. You should remove implant-support dentures daily to clean the denture and gum area.
Advantages of Dental Implants
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, dental implants are a better alternative to traditional methods because they do not decay and preserve the jawbone.
Here is a video in which our Cancun dental surgeon explains how same day implants work:
According to Dr. Joaquin Berron, our dental surgeon:
Dental implants generally offer ‘survival rates’ comparable or better than other teeth replacement options. The success rate of dental implants is quite high.
According to a study by J Kern and colleagues, the estimated success rate of dental implants was 97.9% in the upper jaw and 98.9% in the lower jaw after 5 years.1
Although risks of dental implants are low it is better to be aware of them:
No, this is done free of charge.
Anesthesia is given to the patient so that they do not feel the pain during the procedure.
If one maintains proper oral hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Regular dental checkups and adequate home care will determine how long will they last.
Healing may take up to 3-6 months. In general, healing time for implant depends on the quality of the patient’s bone.
A graft may be needed if your dentist determines that there is insufficient bone.
They require exactly the same care as natural teeth: daily brushing and flossing, along with regular dental checkups and cleanings.
