Dental Implants in Mexico: everything you need to know

This article is for those in a deeper investigation of 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 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 needs and every case is different. 

We know from our patients that they save up to 30% in treatment than in the United States and Canada. When you might end up 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 of 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.

The second stage involves connecting the abutment to support the prosthesis (a screwed dental crown). Usually, placing a crown on the implant takes 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 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.

Important notice

Estimated costs for the surgical stage in our dental clinic. For single implants, the cost includes the positioning of bone grafts and does not include sinus lifts. The prosthetic phase would be 3 to 6 months later. Procedures pricing is based on March 2024 costs and shown for example purposes.
The costs may change depending on the case and are subject to change without prior notice. It will be agreed upon with the patient before starting treatment. The prices are in Mexican pesos. For a different currency, we’ll use the exchange value.

We based the lodging prices on research for dates in September. Dental Solutions Puerto Vallarta is not responsible for the example price, which only pretends to give an idea of the expense. We encourage you to do your research and explore various travel agencies and hotels.
