Are Alzheimer and Gum disease related? Study says YES.

 

That’s right, the possibility that Alzheimer and gum disease might be linked has been studied for years and there is a huge relationship between both conditions. Patients who used not to take care of their oral hygiene have suffered or suffer from Alzheimer.

First, it starts as gingivitis, which is a disease of the gums. It occurs when there is no brushing, flossing or mouthwash. Subsequently, dental plaque appears, that is, solidified food remains between the teeth and also under the gums. This produces irritation, the gums swell and turn red.

Gingivitis that is not treated will become periodontitis; which is an extreme case of dental disease. The gums bleed, become inflamed, and the teeth move. Finally, it ends in tooth loss.

But periodontitis has many side effects in addition to losing teeth because it appears that when the gum and bone get infected that bacteria might easily travel to the brain through the blood.

 

Are Alzheimer and Gum disease related? Study says YES.

Get All-on-4 dental implants in parts in Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry!

 

One of the best dental treatments we offer is All-on-4 dental implants but many patients are not sure to get it because of the price. A full set of All-on-4 fixed teeth in the USA can cost over $60,000 USD and even if you can literally save thousands of dollars by doing it with us many still think they can’t afford it. What they don’t know is that you might be able to do one side of your all-on-4 denture first… and then save for the other part! Depending on your case maybe even a smile makeover with crowns or mini implant dentures might be enough. You will never know until you get an evaluation with our doctors. We will work with you to find what’s the best solution for your smile, taking into account your budget.

Look at William for example, he came a few years ago to get the upper part done and then returned to finish the rest. You can do the same. Even if we can’t accept your insurance directly, we will give you all the receipts and papers necessary for your claims back home.  Check out how we worked with Bill:

 

All-on-4, 3 years ago, doing the upper first.

Yes.

And then I had to come back to do lower.

But you first wanted to see how uppers were gonna be.

Correct.

Yes, and this is a very interesting story because he was so precise on everything on what he asks, what he want because that how you are in life.

Correct.

What can you say?

I like perfection or is close to perfection, as you can get, and I say 9.9.

We have been honored to have you here this time because we did adjustments, he even had a broken tooth, because he’s a strong guy, tough guy, he even had a broken tooth, we fixed up, you came in, back. There was an issue with one of the implants. We fixed that, right now you are ready. You have a combination of All-on-4 uppers, All-on-6 lowers.

Correct.

And… see, look at that smile.

And even with the problem, you come back to Cancun, everything is taking care of. And everything was also under warranty. No issues, whatsoever.

This is my fifth visit to Cancun.

To Cancun.

Thank you, thank you.

You must come to Cancun. If you need dental work, you must come to Cancun. Is the best place. Dentist, dentist office, like a second family.

Oh, of course you are.

Oh, just absolutely fantastic.

One hundred percent the same as real teeth. And, the other thing that happens a lot is when I tell people…

Ah yeah, you told me that yesterday.

They don’t believe, they don’t think I have implants until I tell them. I have implants. And they go… are you kidding me, we just thought you had perfect teeth.

Of course you do, well actually that the magic of what you can do right now. So if someone is watching and they suffer with their teeth is only because they wanted to. Because even if it’s too expensive back home on the States, Canada. They travel here, we have a lot of patients that they travel here for this.

And…

It’s more affordable.

It’s a lot more affordable and the other benefit that some people might not know. I still can claim for my insurance in America.

That’s good thing.

But did I asked those questions from before I came and they said, get all the receipts, and then, when I got back home, I had to apply. Not the dentist.

That’s a different thing.

But the insurance still took on my… still took it.

Of course.

Look around, people don’t smile, they don’t smile, they don’t show their teeth. Is like why is that? Well is because I don’t like my teeth. Well, imagine that those two front teeth, they come out when you were seven or eight years old. How old are you?

Now 52.

Good, same as me, good, lucky us. And… those teeth have been working for a long time, so many years, eating, chewing, grinding. Well, probably they look bad, they look ugly, they look like gray, grayish or something like that. Well, you can certainly change that. With crowns, with bridges, with implants, with All-on-4. There is so many techniques that you can do if is not here, anywhere in the world, buts that the magic about dentistry right now.

This is a great case of beautiful restorative work with All-on-4, All-on-6, on an amazing patient, Bill, it’s my privilege. You are part of the family.

I agree one hundred percent.

And an amigo. I have a golf amigo.

But we will be doing again next time

Of course, will do.

I’ll be okay. That was for racquetball and then with the golf, but here we are working, Thanks for watching, I’m Dr Arzate here in sunny Cancun and on behalf of me and all my staff, thank you, thank you here we are, bye.

Can I be allergic to dental implants? - Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry

 

Only a small percent of the human population is allergic to the metal of dental implants, titanium. So when they tell us: “Am I going to be allergic to dental implants?” it’s difficult to tell right away through phone. We will look at your medical history and review your case to make sure you are a candidate for procedures with mini implants and dental implants. Just remember that titanium is the most compatible with the human body. It’s the same material used for screws when you break a bone or need a hip replacement, etc.

Normally, implants don’t fail and what patients might experience is the bone is rejecting the implant. This doesn’t mean the implant is wrong or that the patient it’s allergic, just that the body simply didn’t want this external object on inside the tissue. It can happen with any type of medical procedure, there’s always a chance.

The only way to know for sure if you are allergic to dental implants it’s to do a lab-test, but even end, each patient might react so different.  So if you are thinking you are allergic to, let’s check out your story, and you can send us more information and we can certainly find out a solution. And if at the end you are allergic to dental implants, there are other ways to work that out!

Doctor German Arzate talks about this issue here. If you want to talk to our staff we are always open to questions.

Affordable dental care with the best team in Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry!

 

Affordable dental care is extremely difficult to find in the USA. Thousands of patients have quickly realized many treatments are completely out of their budget and feel like they won’t ever get the dental solution they need. Luckily for many of them, they have found affordable alternatives by doing dental tourism to Cancun. We are the experts on implant dentistry and have the most professional staff ready to give you the best service. You have never experienced this kind of dental experience. Many of our patients return every year to Cancun to visit their dentist and to have a great time. Patients like Tony, who was looking for affordable implant denture alternatives. Here’s what she had to say with Doctor Krishna.

 

Hello, I am Doctor Krishna Dueñas from Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry, here we are with Tony and she is one of our patient and she’s been here for a lot of time, a long long time and she is going to tell us a little bit about her experience.

Hello, so nice to meet you this time, cause I didn’t get the chance to meet you before. How many years ago did you come?

About was eight, eight and half

Eight and half years

Yeah

Why did you get done, the first time you were here?

I had on my teeth extracted, I had some implants from before, and then, when my dentist in the States told me how much it would cost to do it, I just cried. And I said I can’t, I can’t do that. I already paid off second second caps, it was in fifty thousand dollars and I can’t approach them, another 30 thousand just for the top and I said that is absolutely ridiculous and then my husband did some research on the internet and found Cancun Dentistry.

As years, you know, your jaw just grows, goes different ways and I had it break it again in a major spot, I just told my husband I just want to get a whole new set, you know and improve my smile and which, she’s awesome. I am very satisfied.

Everything is very sterile, very clean. Everyone is so nice. You can’t ask for a better group people, your team is awesome and I feel you’re more personable helping us out with our issue which is trying to getting rid of. And I think it’s a horrible problem in United States.
I am recommending you for many friends to come here.

What do you think about this clinic in particular? What happened to you?

It’s huge, it’s expanded quite a bit! Nice rooms, very nice rooms, very comfortable, very clean and everyone is just awesome, just it’s so awesome, it’s like my second family.

Thank you so much. It’s been a pleasure to work with you and I’m really happy that the outcome it’s good to you and you’re feel really happy and you’re feel more secure and everything is great and we’ll for sure look forward to see you some time soon so we can keep just the maintenance, if you want to be great, it’s been over take eight years and everything is perfect so I expect to see you for regular checkups and it just to have everything perfect, ok?

Perfect.

Thank you so much for everything.

Thank you, you’re awesome.

Thank you.

I am doctor Krishna from Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry.

Can I get All-on-4 implants just in one side?

 

All-on-4 dental implants are some of the most advanced dental implant protocols available for full mouth restoration, but many patients don’t even attempt to check to see if they are candidates because they are afraid of the cost of a full treatment. We highly recommend anyone interest to get one of our free online evaluations with our doctors because if you are worried about the cost it might turn out you can do a combined dental treatment of one side with all-on-4 (upper or bottom) and the other might only require crowns or perhaps also our other available mini implant treatment Snap in Dentures. Don’t wait on your dental care!

Here are the results of a combined treatment like we mention above with a patient we had recently.

 

I am so happy today because I have here with me today Tameka from Cleveland. How are you?

Great!

Great! And we want to share her story, she came in, how many days ago?

Nine.

Nine days ago! She came in “Doctor can you do something? My teeth! I saw you on the internet. I saw all the videos!”. How many videos you saw?

Oh my God!

Oh my God!

Like over fifty? I had been watching the videos, and what it was so great is I felt like I knew you before I even met you!

Thank you! Well, let’s get to the point. She came in, she wanted a big beautiful change of her smile, confidence, lots of things. And I am going to explain you first the technical stuff, let’s get to look at it! We did an All-On-4 on uppers, me and all my team, they are fantastic!

The dream team!

The dream team! I have the dream team here, we are part of this big dream team. Thank you! Thank you. And we did a big surgery, we extracted teeth, we placed 4 implants, look at the size of the implants, this is a real All-On-4, if someone tells you that the All-On-4 are straight, they don’t know how to do it. They need to be expert doctors to do this type of technique. We placed 4 implants and look at the size of them, and then afterwards we did a screw-retained bar. We worked on the lower teeth, because by the way, they needed a lot of work.

No pain

No pain, root canals, from my crowns.

Yes, exactly! We are the ones.

But you told me no pain?

No, no pain at all

Good! So we did root canals we prepared for crowns, we prepared all the lower area, we did some extractions of the teeth that were not good, and this is the result!

Nine days ago she came in and she is ready to go! She’s ready to go!

Go home!

Go home! Go home! To Cleveland. And that’s what many patients do. Thank you for being part of the family. And you are so happy, what are you saying? Like right now you are Miss Cleveland?

Hola!

Hola! That’s the point

I just wanna say I don’t wanna see you guys again, no I am just- I love each you and everyone! I am gonna dance cha-cha all the way.

So this is…

I learned the cha-cha

Cha-cha good! You need to come to Cancun every year at least to say hi and for a check up.

A year?

And just for a check up, is that ok?

Yeah, and for a cleaning?

Good, good! That’s a good excuse.

Yes.

Ok, so this is another great story of All-On-4, what we do here it’s not magic, it’s just working with three good things: Amazing patients like you as I told you, also excellent materials, remember that we use materials FDA approved, which are the same as they use back home, and obviously the doctors expertise. And behalf of me and all my staff and all my team, the dream team as you said!

The dream team!

The dream team! Exactly thank you so much for everyone!

Muy bien!

Muy bien! Everyone! We wanna thank you. We wanna thank you. Enjoy your smile.

And I will…

Start this big change, and she looks fantastic.

Here we are. I am Dr. Arzate. Thanks for giving us your likes and following us! Here we are in Sunny Cancun. Thank you.

Yey! Me!

Yey! Thank you! Bye!

What are teeth made of?

Maybe you would have thought that teeth are some sort of bone, but the truth is way more interesting. Teeth are way stronger than any other human bones, which might be the reason why archeologist find more teeth than any other part of the body in ancient excavations. Healthy teeth can be just that durable!

Each part of the tooth is made of different substances. For example, the outer layer is called Enamel, the hardest of all layers and is composed mostly of a white and rock-hard mineral called calcium phosphate. The enamel is supposed to withstand the pressure of chewing for your entire life, but this doesn’t mean it is impervious. The enamel can be cracked by blunt trauma or can be breakdown by the bacteria’s acid from eating food debris on the tooth surface (caries and cavities!). The enamel cannot regenerate itself like bones, so it requires the intervention of a dentist.

The second layer of the tooth is the dentin. The dentin is made out of a combination of living cells that secrete a hard mineral substance. The dentin is not as hard as the enamel and even the color can go from cream to light yellow. Is very important that you get in immediate contact with your dentist if you start to notice a marked difference in color on your teeth, specially on molars and premolars (white edges with a yellow softer center). There are ways for the dentine to partially regenerate itself, but you need to address bacterial infections and other protection first with the help of a dentist.

The inner most layer of the tooth is called the pulp, which consist of nerves and blood vessels that connect to the jaw bone. This is the most delicate of all part of the tooth. If anything starts reaching the pulp, the pain will let you know.

Here at our dental clinic in Cancun, we usually specialize on advanced implant and denture treatments, but we can also handle general dentistry procedures without a problem. Give us a call for more information about affordable fillings, cleanings and whitening. You could make your appointment during your vacation in Cancun or Riviera Maya.  Call toll free from USA & Canada 1-800-565-1424.

How to get the best All-on-4 and smile again?

 

Whether you’ve planned to get All-on-4 in Cancun or someplace else, you should follow certain guidelines before you make the ultimate decision for your dental care. One of the main things to bear in mind is the fact that sometimes low ethic dental practitioners will give you a treatment called «All-on-4», however in truth this is merely a knock off. We will tell about this below, but first we should begin with the most important factor:

  • Experience: A dental practitioner who works with All-on-4 will need to have great experience under his arm. And we mean many years of experience with a myriad of dental implants. For instance, Doctor German Arzate has twenty years of experience using all types of dental implants for complete smile makeovers.
  • Qualifications: Any dental professional seeking to perform this All-on-4 protocol must have a Nobel Biocare recognition. You would like to know, Doctor German Arzate has received training from the creator of All-on-4, at Malo Clinic. There are incredibly few dental practitioners that count themselves among this group.
  • Implants: The implants for All on 4 treatment must be Nobel Biocare. There is absolutely no question about any of it. Before you agree to doing the treatment, ask for confirmation that the dentists you have chosen are using Nobel Biocare original implants. All-on-4 has one of the best success rates, but only when using Nobel Biocare dental implants. Some dentists try to cut edges with cheaper brands so be careful! We use original titanium Nobel Biocare implants when doing All-on-4 in Cancun.
  • Price: Because of the required expertise of the doctor, the advanced induction and the use of the best materials for All on 4, this treatment can be extremely expensive in USA and Canada. The usual costs range around $25,000 to $30,000 just for ONE arch (upper or lower teeth replacement)… so you could be easily having to pay $60,000 USD in USA. Luckily for you, you can get All-on-4 in Cancun for a fraction of that price. Check here for our current prices.

Water flosser? This is the best way to clean your teeth and dental prosthetics!

 

Why should you get a water flosser or water irrigator like Waterpik? Well, we can do the best dental care but it won’t really matter if the patient doesn’t take care of that dental work after their vacation in Cancun. It’s important to remember that we provide a solution but afterward the ball is in the other side of the courtyard. We highly suggest all our patients to get a water flosser for this. This device uses pressured water to clean hard to reach places for the toothbrush and the regular dental floss from food debris and dental plaque. It is essential to use it if you have crowns, implants or even braces to prevent caries and your implants failing. Here’s Doctor German Arzate talking about the details of using it:

 

 

 

After any procedure with dental implants is very important the maintenance but the maintenance that our patients do.

What I wanna show you today is one of the many things that you need to do to have that area clean. You need to brush your teeth but you also need to have a good health of the gums.

With your floss, with your toothbrush and also with things like this, the water flosser from water pick is one of the things that I can really recommend you. Remember that the implant is now placed on the bone but is surround it by gum,  there’s always a small space that need to be clean always, always that gap, that micro-gap that we have we don’t want food to be trap there, that’s very important.

So how does this water flosser water big works? I’m gonna show you.

It comes likes this, it has a container for the water, you have this that is a motor with you plug in, and here where you can put all the points that come, different types of points. This machine should last a long time this is very important and it has the on and off button and also it has ten levels. I recommended to be in the middle, depends on how sore so you are the after the implant restorative work of after you place implants, there are so many techniques, and this cord attaches to the attachment that moves here so you gonna put the point here and you gonna feel that click.

This machine is intendent to throw water, we fill this container with water, place it here and it works like a pump, absolutely is a pump, the water is gonna go through this hole that you see here, this hole that you see here and is gonna throw water through here, like those machines where they clean those a streets, which throwing water, well this is specially to dentistry.

This is the way that this machine works and I think is a great invention and it works very good for doctors.

What’s the problem? They probably the doctor has an amazing result with the implant, with restorative work but the aftercare instructions sometimes they are not given. I wanted to do this video because many many patients that I’ve seen, I really recommend this product because it works really really good for them and is part of our continued education with patients. So if you have any questions or doubts don’t hesitate to call us, email us or get in contact with us to our websites and our call centers, but anyway this type of products is gonna be another thing to help you out to have that healthy implants to work.

I’m Doctor Arzate and I’m happy to assist you and whatever you need please don’t hesitate to contact me, thank you.

How to fix big gaps between your teeth?

For a lot of people teeth crowding is a problem but also the opposite can be a real aesthetic issue. Some of the reasons why we have gaps between the teeth can be the following:

  • Suction or thrust of the tongue against the teeth: When the tongue is interposed or pushed against the teeth for a long period of time can end up shifting and separating them. This may be due to having a larger than normal tongue (macroglossia) or a nervous habit that certain people have.
  • Disproportion between the size of the maxillary bone and the teeth: When the maxilla has developed in excess, resulting in area too large for them, they can’t simply occupy all the given space.

Veneers (and sometimes crowns) can be the solution of choice when we find a disproportion between the size of the maxillary bone and the teeth. It is also used when the diastema (space between teeth) is due to the suction or thrust of the tongue against them. The function of the veneers in these cases is to fill and disguise the empty spaces. We also have the advantage that the veneers not only correct the separation of them, but also can end with aesthetic problems such as position, shape or color.
The other option it to get a treatments with orthodontics to relocate them on the correct position. This process obviously takes more time because the dentist needs to make adjustments slowly while your teeth move from the bone every month or so. You will also be required to wear a retainer after your braces are taken off.

Dental RestorationPermanently Fitted on Top of the Tooth

c1478f02-b2eb-48ae-9d35-37814d6e37f7

Reasons a crown may be indicated are as follows:

  • Once a root canal has been performed, the tooth tends to become brittle and fragile like glass, which means it is more likely to crack or fracture. A crown placed on top of the tooth will offer protection and make this less likely to happen.
  • A tooth that has been filled and now has more filling material than the tooth itself is no longer viable. There is just not enough tooth left to contain the filling so a crown would be recommended.
  • A tooth that has suffered extreme damage due to decay would need a crown.
  • Crowns are often used to cover discolored teeth as well as to improve aesthetics.
  • If a tooth is chipped or fractured a crown can fix this.
  • A crown may be indicated to strengthen the adjacent teeth supporting a bridge placed to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A crown may also be recommended for supporting the replacement teeth.
  • Crowns are indicated to improve the appearance of malformed teeth caused by genetic disorders such as Dentinogenesis Imperfecta or Amelorenesis Imperfecta.
  • Crowns are indicated when teeth are severely worn down and in cases of extreme sensitivity or abrasion.
  • When teeth are out of place, misaligned, crowded or have large spaces between them crowns can offer a solution.
  • Crowns are used as the super structure on a Dental Implant.

A Dental Crown is basically used to strengthen and offer protection to the tooth structure remaining and can certainly improve the function and appearance of teeth.

Porcelain crowns, bridge (dentistry), dental plate

Dental Crowns are made of different kinds of materials:

  • All metal
  • All porcelain
  • Porcelain fused to metal

In the recent past several developments have been made regarding the type of ceramics used for creating crowns.

The type of ceramics usedto make crowns fall into six different classifications:

  1. The traditional porcelain fused to metal (PFM)
  2. Cast ceramic
  3. Pressed ceramic
  4. Ceramic resin bonded
  5. Reinforced
  6. Milled ceramic

After examining your teeth your dentist will be able to recommend the type of crown that will work best. It will all depend on the aesthetics and the extent to which the tooth needs to be strengthened. You will need to meet with your dentist at least twice in order to properly fit your crown. On the first visit your tooth is readied for the crown, an impression is made of your tooth, and you will receive a temporary crown is fitted over the tooth being repaired. During your next visit your temporary crown will come off and the permanent crown will be adjusted to fit properly and cemented in place.

Once your crown has been cemented in place you will be responsible for taking care of your prosthesis. You must follow good oral hygiene and visit your dentist every six months for a check-up. Your dentist will examine your crown around the edges to make sure it’s maintaining its integrity and that the surrounding peridontium is healthy. Your adjacent teeth will also be examined as well as all your other teeth.

As with anything else in life, complications can arise. The earlier a problem is recognized the better the resolution. Some of the more common complications are:

  • Artificial crown fractures
  • Fracture or cracking of supporting crown
  • Decay of adjacent tooth
  • Gingival margin recedes
  • Root canal treatment fails

Patient happy to come back! Returning patient visits dentist in Cancun!

What’s the deal with people coming to Cancun for dental tourism? You will have a dentist in Cancun ready to attend you during your vacation… does that sound weird? Maybe. But you will end up saving hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars compared to getting the same dental treatments in the USA.

Andriana is a patient that came from Los Angeles and she has a radioshow there! She came a few years ago to get snap in dentures and she returns for check ups and to enjoy the beach. Here’s what she talked about with Doctor German Arzate.

 

 

After three years, guess who’s back!? Andriana! Thank you!

 

It’s a pleasure, I am so happy to be back!

 

It’s a pleasure! Andriana it’s from L.A. And tell me a little bit more about you before we started this story! This story from three years now, that I saw you for the first time.

 

My name is Andriana, I am from Los Angeles, Helenic Radio. It came a point in my life just like many many people that I needed a dental work, to make a long story short, I checked up my options, I was to various places in Los Angeles to get price quotes. I was quoted twenty six thousand dollars just to fix my upper teeth with something like Snap-In-Dentures, and even in my country where doing dental work is much less expensive than the United States I was quoted fifteen thousand dollars, it was cheaper than the L.A., no doubt, but then I started to do some research, and then I came across a lovely June, and I followed her.

 

Hi June!

 

Hi June! I am here again! So I followed her journey and all the work she did with you, I looked into it, I looked into it about I would say like four or five months, I must have seen each video for about twenty to thirty time. And then I said: “No! This is the place that I have to go!”. I contacted the doctor, I sent them photographs of my teeth, of my mouth, various problems I was having. He sent me a video, he told me what solutions he could have for me. We went along, we did it, I booked my hotel, I came here and it was done in one week, at the best place, at the best care, and three years later, “Ding, ding, ding!” the doorbell rang again, and I have to take care of my lower teeth.

 

This product called Snap-In-Dentures, how hard it was for you to get used to it? Because it was a big compromise, she told me “I have speak to many people” so imagine when she came the first time it was like “Oops!”.

 

So, obviously again, I would like to thank June Penny because she helped me out a lot, she answered millions of questions I asking to her, about her experience, so I felt much more comfortable. So it was the same, this time around, I was completed today, here I am talking, and I am making plans on going to dinner and having food and having drinks, cause I have stopped my antibiotics.

 

You deserve it!

 

And I can’t wait!

 

Well, you don’t wanna see the surgery, we did a big surgery, I placed eight implants in lowers, and see, I was concerned about “Wow! She is going to bruise a lot!” but no, none of that.

 

No, I took Arnica. You take Arnica for one week, a full week of before you come to the doctor to have your procedure, and here I am! No makeup, no swelling!

 

And making videos!

 

Nothing!

 

In seven days ago you were in surgery? Well that’s one of the cases with Snap-In-Dentures, we do lots of procedures, but with Snap-In-Dentures this is what you can have, I mean like if you still have some remaining teeth, if they look bad or they are rotten or you don’t like those teeth anymore and you don’t know what to do, this is great option.

 

It is great, and I have to say I wasn’t one of those patients, because there are people that never had good teeth to begin with. I had beautiful teeth, I had very very beautiful teeth.

 

Do all you listeners in the radio have told you what have you done to your voice or something?

 

Not my voice, but my teeth I have had tons of compliments. When I had my first procedure had my first procedure done three years ago and I went back, because I do public speaking at events they were saying: “Wow! Did you do something to your teeth? To your smile?”. And I said: “Yep, I went to Cancun, I had a smile makeover on the upper and everybody was extremely impressed and that’s why many people came over, because they wanted to get the same thing”.

 

Why should I got there? They say on the news say that it’s not safe and all that. Have you seen anything on the times that you have been coming to Mexico, to Cancun, like three years ago and all that. Have you seen anything?

 

No, and been honest I have seen nothing, no problem, no fuss, nothing, I have gone out to dinner with my friend, you know, you have to be careful no matter where you go! Even in California and Irvine. Where I live, which is considered the safest city in America, you still have to be careful, there is nothing happening whatsoever, I haven’t seen a thing. This is my seventh time in Mexico, and my third time in Cancun, so I have nothing to say but the best.

sinus lift process with dental implants in cancun
One of the most common ways our patients contact us is by sending us their mouth photos, showing the decay or missing teeth and asking us if they are candidates for dental implants. Our doctor can give you a pre-evaluation depending on what they see, and it helps a lot when patients send us panoramic x-rays to start looking at the options available. In the end, we must remind all our patients that a clinical evaluation needs to be performed on site by our doctors to confirm the treatment plan. This is important because there might be one or two complications the photos or x-rays didn’t show at first glance. On the case of patients with missing teeth or advanced age, there is one particular problem that can happen and its the need of a sinus lift.

 

What is a sinus lift?

Sinus lift and Dental Implants in Cancun

A sinus lift is a procedure where the doctor fills up part of the cavity under the sinus membrane with bone material to reinforce the are for the placing of dental implants. This happens because when there is no stimulation in the bone it loses density on a process called bone resorption. It starts «eroding» and expanding the sinus area. Implants should not be placed in an area that is trespassing the bone all the way to the sinus. For this reason, a sinus lift might be necessary. The doctor will make an incision to get to the sinus membrane, lift it a little like a blanket and fill the space with bone material that will fuse with the rest of the bone around it and allow the dental implant to be set. There are several factors that can exacerbate the expansion of the sinus area, like age and osteoporosis.
