Last month we had the visit of one of our dear patients to get his dental implant rehabilitated. Hershel from Texas was ready to get his new dental crown and complete his smile again. He had come to us months ago looking for cheap dental implants in Cancun as was happy with our services. We placed the dental implant and gave him instructions to come back later for the last part of his implant treatment. Hershel is pictured above with our Mexican dentist, Doctor Alejandra Lujan, and he would also like to thank Doctor Cesar Ibañez for all his help.
Individual dental implants can be placed in any area that has a missing tooth. The size can be wide, regular or narrow, depending on the tooth that is going to be replaced. The treatment is very simple and fast and only requires a minor invasive surgery where the doctor will open the gum and screw the implant into the bone, after it’s placed, the healing cap and gum will be sutured. This is not a painful procedure as it’s done with local anesthesia and it takes approximately one hour, also we offer sedation done by an anesthesiologist when needed. After inserting the implant, there will be a healing time to let the dental implant be Osseointegrated.
Osseointegration means that the bone will have grown and healed, binding itself to the structure of the titanium implant. The dental implants have a porous surface that will help bone cells to take hold. Titanium is used on these dental implants because of its high compatibility rate, unlike other metals that can oxidize and release elements into the body that will provoke a rejection from the immune system. Titanium implants have a very low rejection rate as long as the patient follows the hygiene directions established by the doctor.
