Let’s Take a Look at Dental Implants! What is an implant Who is a candidate What to expect What are the savings What are the alternatives
What is a Dental Implant?A dental implant is a metal post that is surgicallypositioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Oncein place, replacement teeth, or even bridges ordentures, can be securely mounted onto them.Dental implants provide secure fit with a natural feel.Dentures and bridges mounted to implants wont slipor shift in your mouth. Before and After dental implants
What to Expect When Getting a Dental Implant Implants consists of 3 parts: • the implant/screw- inserted in the jaw, normally made from titanium • the abutment- a small metal post on which the new tooth is placed • The crow- the new tooth structure, made from a variety of materials such as zirconium or porcelain. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease or an injury. To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants? Dental implants are an ideal option for people… in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease or an injury have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant
Dental Implants - The $avings Dental Implants with Dental Travel Guides start at $1750 per tooth and includes all 3 parts of the implant. A single implant in the U.S. averages between $3,000-$4,000.Be wary if you see pricing much cheaper-American dental offices usually don’troll the pricing of all three required elements into their advertised price!
Dental Implants – Comparing Prices Keep in mind: Often there is additional work that needs to be done before an implant can be placed, such as extractions, bone grafting, and other prep work. When getting your comparative US quote, make sure to ask for ALL the costs associated with the work you need to ensure that you are getting a a true apples-to-apples comparison of prices!
The Implant Option: Overdenture About half of patients that inquire about implants actually decide on an overdenture. An overdenture is a denture that uses precision dental attachments to hold the denture down.
What is an Overdenture? The overdenture attachment can be placed in tooth roots that have been saved, or placed into dental implants which have been placed to receive them. In the U.S., the common marketing term is “snap-on denture”.
OverdentureOverdentures are offered through Dental TravelGuides on full dental implants only (not onmini-implants, which only last 3-5 years).
OverdentureStudies demonstrate that, because anoverdenture preservers the root of the tooth,patients report sensory input sensationssimilar to those experienced with teeth.
Why Overdenture? As an option to implants, overdentures require less invasive work (you’ll have fewer or no implants)…. ….and the cost is about ¼ the cost of a full set of implants.
OverdentureIn other words, overdenture patients still feellike they have teeth.

Dental Travelers Share Stories My Dental Travel Guides Case Manager was exceptional to work with. She helped me with information about the upcoming trip, places to stay, border crossing, and the information about the doctor and his dental office. Then she stayed in touch with me through out my 4-day stay and the return trip to the dental office to finish the Bridge and Crown work I was having done. -Bill L., California, Restorative work
Dental Travelers Share Stories I was very impressed with Dr Landeros and his staff. Everything went off without a hitch. I was in Mexico for less than a week. I am so happy that I went ahead and had Dr Landeros do the work. The entire process met my expectations and the best part: no more jaw pain and I look younger! I love that part! I am recommending Dr Landeros to everyone I know. -Kathy F., Texas, Restorative work
Dental Travelers Share Stories The procedure itself took a little more than two hours, was painless, and Dr. Lorenzana did an excellent job of talking me through every step – in his perfect English. After the procedure, the only pain killer required was some ibuprofen for two days. I would certainly go back to Dr. Lorenzana. - Herb S., San Francisco, Dental Implants
Dental Travelers Share Stories My work consisted of two appointments. I needed a filling on one tooth and a three surface inlay on another tooth. So the first day I had my filling done and a mold taken for my inlays and then capped with temporary material. The next day I went back and had my inlays adhered, and my teeth were as good as new. The entire process was painless. My U.S. dentist had estimated my co-pay at about $1,200. My full cost in Mexico, around $300. - Debbie ., San Francisco, Dental Implants
Will I Like the Dentist? Most of our dental offices, especially those located near the U.S. –Mexico border, offer a free consultation appointment, so there is no risk to visiting the office, having a free exam with digital X-RAYS, and getting a dental treatment plan recommendation.
