Dental implants are our most sophisticated option for rehabilitating one’s smile. Designed to replace missing teeth or teeth damaged beyond repair, each dental implant can look and function just like a natural tooth. While traditional dentures sometimes involve discomfort, irritation, or slippage along the gums, dental implants are fused to the jawbone for a permanent solution to missing teeth. With dental implants, Dr. Íñiguez and Dr. Martinez can restore both the look and function of your teeth, often providing his patients a boost in confidence while improving their smiles.
What is a Dental Implant?
Each dental implant replaces a single tooth, and this restorative dentistry technique is frequently used as an alternative to traditional dentures. Dental implants are composed of a titanium post that mimics a tooth’s natural root, as well as a porcelain replacement tooth that is handcrafted to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. Dental implants require zero special maintenance, allowing you to eat, brush, floss, and rinse as if you had never had any dental work done.
High-Quality Dental Implant Restorations
At our practice, we can provide dental implant restorations that are made from the most advanced materials available, including zirconia and other innovative ceramics. Our zirconia implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures offer superior esthetics, durability, biocompatibility, and longevity. In all cases, the restorations we provide are customized to suit the unique needs of each patient and fabricated in reputable dental labs that deliver only the finest finished products. The exceptional treatment and results you receive from Dr. Iñiguez and his team are on par with what you could expect from top cosmetic dentistry practices in the United States, but at a fraction of the price.
Candidates for Dental Implants
Your dental implant consultation begins with an oral exam as well as a review of your medical history. Ideal candidates for dental implants will have an adequate jawbone density to support the titanium post and be in good overall health. To determine sufficient jawbone structure, a 3D x-ray and panoramic x-ray will be needed. Patients of virtually all ages have successfully replaced missing teeth with dental implants. Once Dr. Martinez determines you are a good candidate for dental implants, we can schedule a day for you to begin the treatment.
Dental Implants Procedure and Results
On the day of your procedure, the titanium post or posts will be placed in the jawbone. Over the following three to six months, the post should fuse to the jawbone, creating a secure root for the replacement tooth. A temporary crown can be affixed to the post during this period. Once the healing process is complete, you will return to our office, have the porcelain replacement tooth attached to the post, and your restoration will be complete.
Dental implants are intended to last a lifetime. However, should the permanent crown ever become worn or damaged, it can be replaced. With dental implants, the integrity of your bite and your smile can be restored for natural-looking, beautiful results.
Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of your dental implants will vary based on the amount of preparatory treatments required before implantation (tooth extractions, periodontal treatments, bone graft, and or sinus lifts), the number of implants you have placed, and the type of restoration (crown, bridge, or overdenture) you receive. During your consultation with Dr. Íñiguez, he can discuss the details of your proposed treatment plan and explain the exact price. It is important to note that tooth replacement with dental implants at our practice in Mexico typically costs significantly less than it would in the United States. Because Dr. Íñiguez has reached the same level of education, experience, and accreditation as many of the leading restorative and cosmetic dentists in the United States, you do not have to sacrifice quality for a low price. He is the only accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry who has a private practice in Mexico, and he is dedicated to delivering the highest-quality care and results to all of his patients.
