Dental Implants at Affordable Prices
For most people, dental implants are by far the best solution for replacing missing teeth. They have the same look as natural teeth, so nobody will notice a difference. They have the full support and strength of your jawbone, which makes them as strong and stable as natural teeth. Moreover, they feel like natural teeth, so after a small period of adjustment, you’ll forget they’re there.
Because dental implants are extremely expensive in the United States, more and more people are driving or flying to Los Algodones to get high-quality dental implants at affordable prices. For those who can drive, the trip is easy. However, people who must fly are sometimes discouraged because for a long time, getting a dental implant required at least two visits separated by a few weeks. That meant two different trips.
Today it is possible to get an implant in just one visit! This is extremely good news for people who cannot afford to travel to Mexico twice.
Traditional dental implants required some time because of how the process works. In the first stage, an implant is inserted in the jawbone. The dentist then waits a few months for the implant to integrate with the structure of the bone. After this process is done, the patient comes again, and the dentist opens the wounds to reveal the top of the implant, and inserts the crown that will serve as the tooth replacement.
However, the advance of technology now allows dentists to perform the entire procedure in a few hours. Using computerized equipment, a dentist can obtain an extremely accurate plotting or display of the jaw and the teeth of the patient. With this information, the dentist can plan the complete procedure and prepare for it. The dentist decides where to insert the implant for maximum stability, foresees any problems and prepares the crown ahead of time. Once everything is ready, the patient receives the implant in just one visit.
As with any dental procedure, a dentist must evaluate each case and decide if the patient qualifies for same day dental implants. Some conditions might disqualify a patient from the procedure, such as blood circulation and bleeding problems, certain types of cancer, etc. Some habits, such as smoking might also disqualify permanently or temporally from getting dental implants.
