Full denture supported by implants.

This article is for those in a deeper investigation about dental implants in Mexico. In past articles, we have discussed the concept of Dental Tourism and the types of implants and their benefits. These two might help patients who are learning about their diagnosis and options for dental work in Mexico, and we recommend you to visit them.

We will try to answer questions like “how much do dental implants cost?” and “what time do I need for this treatment?”. It would be hard to think of a unique budget and plan since every patient has their needs and every case is different. 

We know from our patients that they save up to 30% in the treatment than the United States and Canada. When you might end investing more because of traveling fees, you would have the chance to discover a new destination, getting more value for your money and spending half than the cost of just the treatment back home.

Dental implants procedure

Let’s review the steps for a single dental implant:

  1. The implant is placed in the jawbone
  2. The abutment is connected
  3. Fabrication of a custom-made crown
  4. Restoration placement

The first stage is the surgery when a maxillofacial surgeon and implantologist place the implant in the bone. This stage has an initial cost of $18,000 MXN.*

The second stage involves connecting the abutment to support the prosthesis (a screwed dental crown). Usually, placing a crown on the implant needs from 3 to 6 months. Still, the implant can be loaded with a temporary tooth immediately in some cases.

Q: How many visits would you need to have this work done?
A: The single implant placement requires 3 visitations: the first consultation, the surgery appointment, and the revision appointment.
Q: How long would you need in town?
A: We perform the surgical phase in a week for treatments that require single implants. (Even if you need 2,3,4 or 5, we will rehabilitate them individually.)

For the prosthetic phase, we require from 7 to 10 days.

All-on-4 treatment procedure

Let’s review the process to anchor a full denture to the jaw:

  1. Extraction of remaining teeth
  2. Position of bone grafts if needed
  3. Placing of a temporary denture (includes all the abutments)
  4. Permanent denture. 

Your surgeon will prepare four implants to support the denture. The first stage starts from $105,000.00 MXN*, and it includes the cost of the immediate denture to anchor on the implants (if it’s possible for your specific case).

A few months later (3-6), your surgeon will be able to perform the permanent denture with the choice of fixed or removable.

Q: How many visits would you need to have this work done?
A: In the All-On-Four process, we require more than 4 visitations to make all the records and revisions.
Q: How long would you need in town?
A: For each of the phases we need from 10 to 15 days, both surgical and prosthetic stages.
