Dental Implants In Tijuana

    What are dental implants?

    A dental implant is an artificial piece shaped like a small screw, designed to act as the root of the tooth. They are permanently fixed in the jaw, so they can support different types of dental restorations (crowns, bridges or special prostheses), which replace missing teeth.

    Unlike dentures, which rest on bone, implants are built into the jawbone so that gum tissue grows around the replacement tooth just like natural teeth. This is because the implants fuse with the bone in a process known as osseointegration.

    Dental implants are the definitive solution to tooth loss due to trauma, injury or periodontal disease. In addition, they reduce the risk of bone loss in the upper or lower jaw, related to the loss of a tooth.

      How is the process?

      1. Complete examination of the patient’s mouth

      In the initial visit, the state of the patient’s mouth is assessed.

      Imaging studies such as X-rays or MRI are analyzed to assess the quality and quantity of bone.

      Models of the natural teeth and mouth are taken for a natural appearance.

      1. Preparation

      If the patient has any dental disease, it is necessary to correct it before placing the implants.

      A deep dental cleaning is performed to ensure that the patient’s mouth will be in the best condition.

      If necessary, the extraction of teeth badly damaged by caries should be practiced.

      In case the patient has lost the tooth and does not have enough supporting bone, a bone graft is performed.

      1. Implantation

      Implantation is performed through a surgical process. In some cases, provisional prostheses are placed prior to the crown or fixed denture.

      The implantation procedure only takes 10-20 minutes.

      1. Withdrawal of sutures

      After one or two weeks, the patient should go to the clinic to have the stitches removed.

      1. Healing

      After the procedure there is a period of 2 to 3 months for bone formation and integration with the implant.

      1. Final tooth placement

      The patient must return about two weeks after the intervention for the final crown placement.

      The entire process may take 2 to 3 months, but it is the solution to healthy teeth.

      Frequent questions

      Does an implant feel like a natural tooth?

      Yes. Dental implants feel and function just like natural teeth as they are embedded in the gums. On the other hand, with a prosthesis the patient has a foreign body to which he must get used.

      How long do Dental Implants take to heal?

      Dental implants can take three to several months to integrate into place. The bone around a new implant needs time to heal so it can secure the implant into place. Jaw augmentation procedures (or bone grafting) require additional healing time, too, meaning the whole process could take several months to be completed.

      How long will dental implants last?

      With proper hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime. That is, from 30 to 50 years. In addition to hygiene, it is important to visit the dentist regularly for check ups and professional cleaning.

      Does it hurt to get dental implants?

      For the implant´s placement, a local anesthetic is applied, so the patient feels minimal discomfort. During the postoperative period, analgesics and antibiotics are recommended to combat inflammation and pain, so that the discomfort will be tolerable.

      How is an implant better than a dental bridge?

      Dental bridges are a cheaper solution than implants, but they are usually removable so food debris can get underneath and cause bad breath and bacteria buildup. In addition, they can move when chewing and cause discomfort to the patient.

      The implants are fixed, they integrate with the maxillary bone and act in a similar way to the bone. The sensation when speaking and chewing is similar to that of natural teeth. In addition, they do not move, they do not cause discomfort, they provide a good aesthetic appearance and allow more independence by not having to overload the adjacent teeth as in the case of bridges.
