Dental Implants in Mexico
How is the procedure of dental implants in Mexico?
Dental implants are the best solution to replace missing teeth. The dental implant treatment usually requires at least 2 visits separated by several weeks. It works with a principle called osseointegration, which refers to the natural fusion of the dental implant with the jawbone.
It’s because of osseointegration that the dental implant receives the same stability and strength of a natural tooth.
To receive dental implants it is necessary to take several steps to prepare for them.
These may include a complete dental evaluation, x-rays, a medical history evaluation, stopping or changing medications you are taking for other purposes, and the cessation of smoking for a specific amount of time before and after the process.
After qualifying for the procedure, a date for the first surgery is set. On this day, the dental surgeon will remove any remains of the destroyed tooth that may still exist, to then insert the dental implant in the place of the lost tooth and closed the wound.
The second surgery takes place when the dental implant has successfully osseointegrated with the jawbone, a process that usually takes from 3 to 6 months. The patient will then come back for a second surgery, during which the surgeon will insert an abutment on top of the implant.
The final step of the dental implant process involves inserting a crown or another type of artificial implant on the abutment.
In a few cases, the jawbone might not have enough bone to support the implant, and additional grafting procedures will be required. After the procedure is finished, a dental implant will have the same strength and stability as a natural tooth. It will also look and feel like a natural tooth.
Similar to a regular dental bridge but supported by dental implants instead of natural teeth. In most cases, when an implant-supported bridge is applied, one implant is placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth. Then, the crowns are connected to form one piece.
An implant-supported bridge reduces the pressure on the individual implants in the bone and spreads it across the entire bridge.
Implants supported dentures
Recommended for those who have enough bone in the jaw to support implants.
Patients can receive an implant-supported denture in either the upper or lower jaw, Its special attachments snap onto the implants.
The implants are usually placed in the jawbone at the front of the mouth because there tends to be more bone in the front of the jaw than in the back. Also, the front jaw doesn't have many nerves or bone structures that could interfere with the placement of implants. Some people prefer this procedure because it is a more permanent solution as the crown and bridgework in their mouths can't be removed.
