Researching dental implants is the most important step to make an informed decision for your health. Implant dentistry has advanced at incredible leaps for the last few years, providing a good solution for people to restore look and functionality to their mouths with regular dental implants.
Dental implants are made of titanium, one of the most durable materials that is bio-compatible with the human body. These implants can last for decades with the proper care and maintenance. You should definitely follow the cleaning instructions given by your dentist to keep them clean. Always brush after a meal and use water irrigators when possible to get rid of any food debris trapped in hard to reach places. You must avoid plaque build up or the integrity of the implant might get compromised.
One of the questions we get the most is if dental implants hurt. The placing procedure might leave you a bit sore but otherwise, dental implants feel and look like natural teeth once the rehabilitation of the screw with the crown is over. You shouldn’t have any pain and you will be able to eat normally again. All implant procedures are performed with local anesthesia to numb the area. You might only require some over the counter pain-killers the first couple of days after placing the implants and those can be obtained easily in any local drug store pharmacy. The dentists will give you a prescription for what you might need.
Dental Implants in Mexico are cheaper not because they are done with different materials, as in fact all implants are imported and FDA approved. The biggest factor for more affordable prices is that the clinics don’t have to pay exorbitant rents. Cost of life in Mexico is lower which helps offset salaries and services. The materials are the same!

To get regular implants placed you only need a few days to do any extractions, place the implants and get a follow up to make sure everything is fine.
Usually all implants are placed in the same appointment. The surgery takes approximately about 30 minutes per implant. This does not count patient prep and anesthesia.
Everyone’s pain threshold is different. Some people only have mild discomfort in their gums and some will require more than a couple of days of pain killers.
It’s recommended to rest and relax for the next 24 hours after the dental implant surgery to give time for your body to recuperate. After that you might feel ready to do some light activity. We suggest to use a cap or a hat to avoid sunstroke and take a lot of liquids afterward.
No, you shouldn’t drink alcohol after your surgery because you will l get antibiotics to prevent infection and alcohol can affect the healing tissue in your mouth.
Usually you can get implants placed the same day. The doctor can tell you if you will be able to get the implant the same day after extractions or cleaning the bone if there was already an infection.
It depends in the type bone and the health of the patient. The doctor will check your x-rays and bone during surgery to make the estimate.
You need to take panoramic x-rays of your mouth, as well as photos of your teeth from different angles so the doctor can make an accurate diagnosis.
As long as you follow the doctor’s instructions in how to clean your gums and stitches, the risk of infection should be very low.
Every medical surgery carries a risk of failure. Dental implants are no different. We use medical grade titanium implants which are the most bio-compatible material with the human body, the same used in hip replacements and screws. The chance of success is close to 96% on healthy patients but there are factors that could lower that percentage, like previous smoking, drinking, drug abuse, history of bad oral hygiene, bone disease, etc.
You should be able to relax and have a good time after resting when you get your dental implants. We would recommend avoiding extreme sports like skydiving, bungee jump, and the like. Most tours, swimming and visiting Mayan archeological sites should be ok. Ask your doctor if you have any question.
Depending on how well you take care of them, implants can last up to a couple of decades.
