Dental Implants in Tijuana, Mexico
A dental implant is a small, titanium screw that is placed in the upper or lower bone jaw where a tooth is missing.
Dental implants are an excellent solution for most patients who are missing one or more teeth. Most of the time, only local anesthesia is needed and the procedure, done by a highly skilled dentist, can take but less than an hour from start to finish to be placed.
We work exclusively with Straumann dental implants and BioHorizon dental implants, both top of the line worldwide.
COST: $1800 dollars
*Includes dental implant, abutment and zirconia crown.
How many visits do I need to get a dental implant?
Dental implants are placed in as little as one hour from start to finish, and one or more can be done in a single visit. However, sometimes, depending on the case, they might require an average of 3 dental visits to complete the procedure; once the implant or implants are placed, bone has to “grow” around the dental implant before the abutment and porcelain crown can be placed, and this can take about 4 months. On the second visit, a post like screw called “abutment” is placed. On the third visit, a few days later, the crown, which holds on to the abutment is cemented. On the first appointment, when the actual dental implant is placed, the total amount to be paid is usually $850 dollars.
On the second appointment, four months after the implant is placed, $300 dollars are to be paid. And on the final and third visit, when the crown is placed, the final payment of $450 dollars are then paid.
