Here we will answer some of the most questions you have asked us about Dental Implants in Cancun.
How long does it take to place a dental implant?
The placing of a dental implant doesn’t take long in itself, it could be around 30 minutes, give or take, per implant. There are some factors that can affect the overall time of the procedure like the place of the implant, doing dental extractions, bone grafting or additional work on the gums. Also, if you opt in for dentistry sedation at extra cost then you will require more time to wake up.
How long does it take before the dental crown can be placed on the implant?
The bone requires some time for it to bond with the surface of the titanium dental implant and ensure it will not fall because of the pressure from chewing. The approximate healing time before placing the implant crown varies from person to person and their type of bone. A weak bone might require more time, and, ironically, a thick bone might also require more time to heal for lack of blood irrigation. Age and gender also come into play. The most common time for healing is around 3 to 6 months. The doctor will tell you how long would it be during the clinical evaluation.
Can people tell I have a dental implant? Are they noticeable?
People should not be able to tell you have a dental implant because only the crown should be visible. The crown is carefully made to match the looks and color of the contiguous real teeth so there is no problem there. They feel and look like natural teeth.
I just lost a tooth. Should I get a dental implant right away?
Yes! If you just lost a tooth this is the best time for the doctors to make an evaluation of your bone before you start showing signs of bone resorption! Bone resorption means bone loss because there is a lack of stimulation from the tooth that used to be there. If you have gum disease this will also ensure to address it as soon as possible to make it a good place for a dental implant.
