Not all people have heard about dental implants in general, let alone about dental implants in sunny Cancun. As we are about to start 2016 we would like to share the basics for people who want to learn about affordable dental implants while doing dental tourism in Cancun.
The other day I was explaining to my acquaintances about dental implants and at first they thought I was talking about root canals and crowns. Implants are not same as those. Dental implants are screws that are set into the jawbone or maxilla that act as a root of a tooth that had been lost or extracted. The dental implants we use at our dentists in Cancun use are made by the same best brands used by dentists in USA and Canada, like Nobel Biocare, Zimmerman, and others. The quality is THE SAME, but the cost is much MUCH more affordable here in Cancun. The implants are made of Grade 5 Titanium, the best biocompatible material.
Biocompatibility means it is much easier for the human bone and tissue to bond itself to the dental implant and the rate of rejection is low. There are some factors that can affect the rejection rate from our bodies like smoking, heavy drinking, inadequate oral hygiene and untreated periodontal diseases. It is very important that you follow all of the doctor’s indications to ensure the best possible outcome for this implant, just like you would with another surgical procedure.
The dental implants are placed by drilling into an empty space where the missing tooth/teeth will be replaced, and then they will be screwed in. Afterwards, you would have to wait for the healing process to finish (a few months) before placing the porcelain crown. This stage of the treatment is called implant rehabilitation.
