The best thing about getting dental implants in Mexico is that, at such a low price, you do not have to sacrifice quality. We are not going to lie and say that all dental clinics in the country are excellent. Of course, not all clinics offer a high standard of care and not all dentists use the same quality of dental materials. Due to the popularity of dental tourism in Mexico, there are a lot of “dentists” who are not qualified to practice dentistry and are only in it to gain money. However, if you do your research well and choose a licensed dentist, you are guaranteed to receive top-quality care.


Many implant specialists in the country are internationally acclaimed and use the same quality materials as US dentists. You will also find clean and professional dental clinics that are equipped with modern technology. Some dental clinics and hospitals, such as San Jose Tecnologico de Monterrey, are accredited by the prestigious Joint Commission International (JCI). In addition, you do not have to worry about the language barrier because many dentists in the country can speak fluent English. Many clinics in the country offer various facility services as well. For example, Dentalia Cancun offers interpreter and translation services, free Wi-Fi, online doctor consultation, and medical records transfer.


As a bonus, you can enjoy the local attractions and restaurants while you are there for your dental implant.

How long do dental implants in Mexico take?

Two trips are generally required to complete dental implant procedures in Mexico. The first part of treatment usually includes consultation, planning, and impressions. During this time, your doctor may also need to remove any damaged teeth. If your jawbone is not thick enough or too soft, your dentist will perform bone grafting as well. Bone grafting is done to provide a more solid base for the implant. The implant placement will take place in the first part of the treatment as well.


Your next trip will involve the placement of abutment and crown (the tooth-looking part). This second part of the treatment takes place between two to three months after the first part because your bone and the implant need to fuse together (a process called osseointegration) before your doctor can place the abutment and crown.
