Спасибо что вы есть!!!
I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

Thanksfull to bookimed for help me for my surgery in my brain they support me by one of best doctor in that section and he advised me many choices of surgery and hospital offers . I hope see them in top always they deserve 5 Stars. 😊
После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.
I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.
Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.
My experience with bookimad was great; the thing that I appreciate is the high sense of humanity of the staff, especially Dr Farruk Ahmed. He answer all my questions in time, he read my poor English and make me feel comfortable, such thing is so important for someone that suffer. I know they do their best to help. Thank you Dr.

Hospital de la Familia

Carlo was amazing! He made sure I knew exactly what to expect every step of the way. There was always someone at the hospital who spoke English, and everyone there made my stay comfortable. Carlo even checked up on me once I was home through my recover several times. I will admit I was scared at first about leaving the US to have the surgery but I’m so glad I did it!

FAQ about Dental Implant in Mexico

Dental Implants: Brief Overview

Tooth implants are units made of metal or titanium studs inserted directly into lower or upper jawbones. When a dental implant fixture is inside the bone, a dentist can place an abutment (a kind of support) and aesthetic permanent teeth. Commonly a dental implant procedure is born on to patients with missing or damaged teeth.

Tooth implants solve such patient issues as single or multiple teeth absence plus dental malfunctions infeasible to correct with an ordinary treatment. Implants are customarily used instead of dentures, but they resume teeth functionality and have no difference from natural teeth. Due to this, a patient can chew any food they like without worrying about damaging a dental implant.

How to Get Low-Cost Dental Implants in Mexico?

Mexico can be the benchmark for people whose priority is to find cost-effective and qualitative dental implants. It is the major cause why foreign dental patients opt for Mexican dental tourism. The cost per a single tooth implant in Mexico falls between $680-$980, depending on its brand and how many units you want to install at a time. For contrast, you will pay $1,500-$3,000 per 1 implant in the USA. When you install more than one unit, the difference is significant.

So, if you opt for low-cost teeth implants in Mexico or another country, you can look over the best deals and clinics on this page. You can book one of the most attractive offers straight away, attain the info on each Mexico’s and global dental clinic, and read verified reviews on dental implant procedures. When you have taken a choice, just submit a request, and Bookimed medical coordinator will provide all the info needed about dental implants.

Why Acquire Dental Implants in Mexico?

Mexico keeps top positions regarding plastic surgery and dental tourism globally. The major causes for international approval are:

  • Cheap dental implants. Dental implant procedure processed in Mexico are indeed 3-4 times low-prices than in the neighboring USA or Canada. Dental implants cost in Mexico falls between $670-$800, while the single implant costs $2,000-$3,000 in the USA. So a profit for an American or Canadian is apparent.
  • High quality dental work. Licensed and accredited dental clinics in Mexico value their reputation, so they utilize implants produced by the top global manufacturers. However, the keywords are “licensed” and “accredited”. Otherwise, you can face lack-experienced dentists and unsatisfied dental work quality eventually. So it is crucial not only to book a dental implants clinic offering the lowest price but also a facility holding proper international certification or, at least, a local one.
  • Convenient location. For Americans, it is pretty simple to cross the border and turn out to be in Mexico for an implant procedure. You can easily do it by plane or car. You start going through dental implant procedures in Mexico in just several hours after leaving your home.

Suppose you think that the above-listed reasons are not enough to get dental implants in Mexico. In that case, you also should know that teeth implants clinics in Mexico frequently provide discounts to make deals even more attractive for international customers. They decrease expenses because of strong competition among local dental clinics, and Mexico’s medical centers fight for each client. It is a simple explanation of such low-priced dental implants in Mexico against the USA’s background.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

A dental implant procedure solves such issues:

  • missing single or multiple teeth
  • crooked teeth impossible to be restored with ordinary dental treatment.

Mouth dental teeth are a top alternative to dentures that deliver discomfort in everyday life. Implant dentures act like natural teeth:

  • They do not require specific dental care.
  • Dental implants are well-fixated.
  • A patient can chew any solid food without worrying.

However, a patient must go through a time-consuming implant installation period that may last 2-9 months. A single tooth implant is usually cut in time compared to full mouth implants placement.

So, by picking an option of placing dental implants in Mexico, be ready to visit this country several times to complete a procedure.

Implant Treatment Planning

When a patient lands in Mexico, then they get to a dental clinic. A Mexico dentist meets a customer and starts a dental assessment to check:

  • teeth conditions and decide whether dental treatments needed
  • gum conditions to assess whether they are healthy enough to keep implants fixated
  • how many mouth implants are needed to restore/replace damaged or missing teeth during dental procedures.

According to this, a surgeon can estimate the length of treatment and ultimate dental implant cost.

Preparation Stage

During a comprehensive examination to get dental implants in Mexico, a dentist takes an X-ray, and then they assess when your implant surgery will be scheduled or whether you need some extra dental treatment in case of caries and some inflammatory conditions.

Before dental implant placement and anesthesia administration, implant dentists can prescribe antibiotics to prevent implant failure and increase dental implants survival rate. Also, specialists often recommend limiting smoking because it can slow down the implant healing process.

Once your implant placement procedure is appointed at a dental office, you come, and intervention starts with an anesthetic infusion to make the procedure comfortable and well-tolerated.

Dental Implants in Mexico Processing

After anesthesia administration, the process of implant installation starts:

  1. A doctor dissects gum tissue to access the jaw bone and then carefully drills out the holes where dental implants will be placed.
  2. The depth of the channel is determined with a special instrument.
  3. Then the hole is gradually extended to the required diameter.
  4. A specific electric device fixates a dental implant.
  5. Then a fixture (support) is screwed into the prepared opening for a dental implant.

Then a doctor sutures the gum and lets an implant settle in. This process usually takes 2-9 months, depending on the gum and bone condition. If a patient experiences full mouth dental implants, the recovery may take longer and additional visits to implant dentists.

When implantation is over, a temporary abutment or/and temporary removable denture are placed. Then, an orthodontist makes a record of producing a properly sized and shaped crowns to make dental implants look aesthetic.

Healing Process

After the implant basis placement, it is crucial to wait until a jaw bone, and gum gets healed. The entire recovery period after having dental implants in Mexico takes 2-6 months and can be prolonged up to 9 months in some cases.

Just after implant surgery, a patient should maintain hygiene. Especially the first 24 post-op hours. You have to rinse your mouth with an antibacterial solution. After that, you can brush your teeth gently and slowly.

How many visits are needed for dental implants?

You have to visit a dental office 2-5 times, depending on the case, to finish your dental implants procedure. For patients who experience up to 3 tooth implants placement with sufficient bone strength and healthy gums, 2-3 visits are usually enough. You will need to come to a good dentist more often in other cases.

Types of Dental Implants in Mexico

Best dental clinics in Mexico offer different types of implant procedures. The most common are:

  • Single-tooth implant surgery. It is an operation when only one implant is placed to restore a tooth and its functionality.
  • Full mouth restoration. This option allows you to completely makeover your smile. It can be done by placing single implants or to use more cost-effective alternatives such as All-on-4 or All-on-6.
  • All-on-4. It is an implant surgery to place permanent dentures for the whole jaw on 4 implants. This procedure costs less compared to the intervention when more implants are required. It completely solves such a dental problems as missing teeth and attracts patients with a reduced recovery period.
  • All-on-6. It is a restoration of the whole dental arch with dentures placed on 6 dental implants.

Only a local dentist can recommend what option will be okay for you according to preferences and budget limitations.

Does an implant feel like a natural tooth?

Dental implants feel almost the same as your own teeth. Probably, you will not notice any difference. However, dental implants do not have nerves, so an artificial tooth will not react to the temperature changes. During biting or chewing food, dental implants function like natural teeth.

When can I go to work after implant surgery?

Taking 1-3 days off after placing dental implants in Mexico is recommended. Actually, you will feel well, but some patients can experience pain, swelling, and tooth tenderness. So it is better to cope with these sensations at home. But if you cannot postpone your work, you can normally attend your workplace. Typically, a doctors placed temporary teeth or temporary dentures to preserve an aesthetic look of your smile until a healing process completed.

Risks related to dental implants

Teeth replacement with implants is the best solution for patients who have lost teeth or received significant damage making them impossible to be restored. Patients do not need to wear fixed bridges or dentures that require extra care and are often uncomfortable to use.

Despite these advantages, still, there is the possibility to face some risks related to post-op implant denture procedure, as American Dental Association sorts out:

  • Dental implant failure. It happens that after tooth implant installation, the implantation process fails. It happens due to a lack of stability of dental implants caused by insufficient stability of the bones or gums. Due to this, doctors usually manage bone grafting before surgery to provide proper implant fixation.
  • Infections. Infection may complicate a dental implant placement as any other surgery. So, warn your doctor if you observe inflammation or fluid collection around the implant.
  • Nerve affection. While inserting an implant, a doctor can affect the nerve. As a result, a patient will feel pain occurring occasionally. Contact your dental surgeon to manage this condition if you notice some pain or discomfort after your dental implants placement.

The above-listed issue may be easily prevented by picking a well-qualified dental implant doctor with dental practice.

Dental Implants: Top Patient Benefits

Tooth implantation is one of the most sought-after procedures globally. And there are some unconditional explanations for this:

  • High-quality substitute for natural teeth. Dental implant units feel and look like natural teeth. If they have been installed properly, you will notice no difference between artificial and natural teeth. An implant dentist accurately picks a color of your future dental units in accordance to the rest of the tooth's shade. You can chew and bite any type of food, even solid products like nuts, apples, and meat.
  • Your speech becomes clear and improved. In contrast to poorly-fitted dentures, with implants that are stable and well-fixated, a person will pronounce words clearly and without difficulty. Dental implants will not slip away like common dentures can do.
  • Better comfort in everyday life. Teeth implants are not units existing separately. They are a kind of part of you. So you can leave in the past such issues caused by dentures like loosening or their absence in a critical moment.
  • Comfortable ingestion. Such unpleasant situations like sliding dentures while you are eating, especially when you are visiting someone, are in the past. With dental implants you can just relax, feel confident, and enjoy the food you like.
  • Resume your self-esteem. Implants are not only about functionality but also about appearance. You can smile with perfect natural-looking teeth. No empty spaces are visible now while you are smiling wide.
  • Rest of the teeth remain intact during installation. Dental implant installation is an autonomous procedure. Only damaged teeth needed to be replaced are affected during the procedure. Other teeth remain untouchable. In some cases, a doctor can make teeth whitening to correct the entire smile color. With implants, it is extremely easy to maintain oral hygiene. No specific approaches are not required: brushing and flossing are enough.
  • Lifetime result. An implant fixture produced by world-renowned manufacturers has a lifespan. As for dental crowns, they usually should be changed every 10-15 years. So the high cost of dental implants compared to dentures is compensated by their durability.
  • Advanced comfort. The details are in names: dentures are removable, but implants are stable. So you do not need to waste money on tons of adhesive to keep dentures stable. Dental implants solve this issue forever.

How long will dental implants last?

Actually, the implant screw can last a lifetime if it has been placed properly. However, the dental crown is recommended to be replaced in 10-15 years after its placement. To prolong a lifespan of the dental crown, regularly brush and floss your teeth and implants, undergo dental check-ups every 6 months. The dental clinics in Mexico and dental implant manufacturers typically provide a warranty on their dental work.

How long will the implant procedure take?

The implant surgery itself lasts about 1.5-2 hours. A doctor wastes this period of time installing each implant instead of missing or damaged teeth. The more units you need, the more time it takes. When a placement operation is over, a patient needs to pass up to 6-month healing period to finish a procedure to insert dental implants in Mexico.

What pre-op procedures are performed before the implant surgery?

There are no specific procedures needed before the dental implant procedure. An implant dentistry doctor provides a teeth assessment, takes an X-ray, and develops a treatment plan if needed. A doctor can detect gum weakness or insufficient bone strength during an investigation. Due to this, a patient can receive a conservative dental treatment with a combination of bone grafting before placing dental implants in Mexico.

Will I require bone grafting?

Bone grafting is not prescribed for everyone. Typically, it can be recommended after tooth extraction or other dental treatment, when bone tissue starts “melting”. So, if a patient plans to have a dental implant, it is better to get a bone grafting procedure to make the bone provide a strong and stable basis for an artificial tooth. With an insufficient amount of the bone tissue and its weakness, a dental implant procedure can fail. Typically, you can have bone grafting before dental implants in Mexico.

Can I smoke before and after the dental implant oral surgery?

It is strongly recommended to stop smoking prior to and after implant surgery because this habit can dramatically impact the outcome. The deal is that every time you inhale during smoking, you receive a nicotine dose restricting blood flow to your gums. It weakens the immune system, so any injury and wounds hardly get healed. To get dental implants in Mexico successfully, give up smoking, at least temporarily.

Is there a warranty on dental implants in Mexico?

The best dental clinic in Mexico always assures patients with their high dental work quality with a warranty. Also, you will get a guarantee from a dental implant manufacturer. If a dental clinic refuses to give you a warranty, advise you to pick another medical facility.

Does it hurt to get dental implants?

Dental implants in Mexico are inserted while a patient is under anesthesia. So you will feel no pain during surgery. However, you may get some painful sensation or discomfort that disappears the next several days when you are out of anesthetic. No specific dental treatment is needed in this case.

Who is a good candidate for dental implant surgery?

Before opting for dental implants in Mexico, it is crucial to consider whether you are a good candidate for this procedure. Check the outline below to get an answer:

  • Gum health. To get implants kept well in the gum, they have to be healthy. In case you suffer some oral diseases, it doesn't mean that you have failed your chance for getting dental implant procedure. You just should appeal to a doctor to manage gum malfunctions, undergo proper therapy, and then start dental implantation surgery planning.
  • Sufficient strength and amount of bone structures. It is unfeasible to diagnose this issue on your own. You need to visit a dentist primarily. If a specialist will approve your concerns regarding weakened bone structure, a bone grafting can be recommended. This procedure strengthens the bone tissue, so an implant will be well-fixated and stabilized. That guarantees its durability.
  • Age restrictions. Dental implants are well-tolerated by patients at any age. Even in your 90th, you can get implants and improve your smile. However, there are still some age limitations: teeth implants are not recommended and even forbidden to install for patients younger than 18. The deal is that the bone structures are growing till 18 years old. So, if a teenager has got some missing or extremely damaged teeth, it is necessary to wait until they are 18.

Such conditions may be contraindications for dental implantation:

  • Pregnancy. It is essential to postpone implant surgery until a child’s birth. During a dental implant procedure, a patient takes an X-ray, an anesthetic solution is administered plus a woman can experience additional stress. So to avoid a negative impact on a baby’s health, it is better to plan your implant journey after delivery.
  • Smoking. Nicotine delivered to the blood with smoking drastically slows down the healing process. So, to have a successful outcome with implants, a patient should at least temporarily give up smoking.
  • Diabetes. People suffering from diabetes can be refused dental implant procedures in Mexico. The healing process goes very difficult with this condition. A preliminary consultation with a doctor is an obligatory step prior to dental implant operation.

How is an implant better than a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is an outdated but cheaper option to restore teeth. It looks esthetically well, but it will never feel like natural teeth. A bridge requires extra hygiene care to serve longer. It may cause some discomfort to the gums. Many patients wear it off at night.

Dental implants really solve problems with missing teeth or their functionality loss. They feel and look the same as natural teeth. You can bite, chew, and eat any food whenever you want.

Dental implants are lifetime solutions, while dental bridges can break or get loosened over time.

What is dental implantation?

Teeth implantation is a type of dental prosthetics when doctors completely restore a missing tooth or teeth. Both roots and dental crowns are restored. Dental implantation is especially useful for adentia (tooth loss) treatment.

What techniques of dental implantation are available?

  • One-stage surgery — the method is applied to place an abutment during an operation. An abutment attached to the gum tissues connects the implant and the bone into the mouth. The procedure is carried out only once and does not require much effort.
  • Two-stage surgery — this is a classic method of tooth restoration. A procedure is applied to replace teeth if there is no immediate need for a cosmetic solution. A surgeon puts the implant into the jawbone for healing. After this process, the surgeon performs the second surgery to place the abutment and a crown.
  • Implantation after tooth removal — this is the easiest method used after the root was removed. A surgeon places the implant and augments a supragingival part of the tooth.

What are the additional surgeries for dental implants?

  • Bone augmentation — the technique restores the bone in the patient’s jaw. A surgeon adds the material around the implant to support it.
  • Ridge expansion — a doctor performs this surgery when the jaw is not wide enough to support implants. Depending on the case, simultaneous dental implants may be preferred during ridge expansion.
  • All-on-4/6/8 — such a procedure helps to install 4-8 implants per 1 toothless jaw. All-on-four service restores teeth in 1 day only with 4 implants (6 or 8). It does not require any additional interventions.

How do specialists implant the teeth?

  1. During the first visit, a dentist assesses the condition of the patient's gums, jawbone, remaining teeth and develops a treatment plan. Therefore, it is necessary to take a panoramic x-ray that shows all dental issues. If there are ambiguities, the doctor may recommend a jaw study on a CT scan.
  1. Dentists fix the dental implant, like the natural root, in the bone.
  1. The patient is under local anesthesia. The specialist makes an incision in the gum where the tooth is missed to expose the bone.
  1. The dentist makes a hole in the bone with a special sterile drill. After that, the doctor screws and fixes the artificial root in the bone and suturing the incision.
  1. A week after the procedure, the patient undergoes the examination. The dentist removes the stitches.
  1. Depending on the initial state of the bone, in 3-6 months after the tooth implantation, the expert creates a dental crown of individual shape and color.
  1. The tooth can be attached to the implant with a special cement or screw. Screw fixation is most often used so that, if necessary, the prosthesis can be easily removed and repaired.

Who needs dental implants?

Teeth implantation is the most effective option for people with:

  • one or more teeth loss
  • the several teeth in a row absence
  • no extreme teeth in the row
  • complete adentia (when all teeth are missing).

For some people, dental implants are the most comfortable way to restore lost teeth; for others — this way is the only one possible. Conventional dentures and bridges are not suitable for those who suffer from diseases of the oral mucosa, have weak alveolar processes, and suffer from nausea while wearing conventional prostheses.

What are the results after the procedure?

In 95-97% of cases, the dental implant is accepted. However, implant rejection is the most significant risk. Rejection may happen because of:

  • systemic diseases (AIDS, HIV, diabetes, hypertension)
  • installation of low-quality implants
  • non-compliance with doctor's recommendations after implantation (excessive load of the implant, poor oral hygiene, smoking)
  • medical error.

Throughout the entire period of implant engraftment, the patient should regularly visit a dentist.

How long is the dental implant recovery process?

An average period of recovery after teeth implantation procedure lasts about 1-2 months. However, that depends on each patient’s case. In general, the duration of recovery depends on:

  • number of implants installed
  • sinus lifting performing
  • bone grafting conducting.

What are the complications after the dental implant?

During the first days after the procedure, the following complications can occur:

  • implant rejection
  • pain
  • swelling
  • bleeding.

To avoid severe complications after the procedure, follow the doctor’s recommendations. Eat soft food, do not smoke or drink alcohol. Get painkillers if the pain is unbearable. In several days the discomfort will go away.
