Dentists Doing Implants in PV Area

Can't Post | Private Reply
Will be spending the winter in Bucerias and need a couple of dental implants. Does anyone know of a recommended dentist and approximately what it would cost for an implant. I have a really good general dentist but she doesn't do implants.

Thanks

I can't advise you about that area, but I don't believe a winter will be a long enough period to have any implants properly done.


My Canadian educated Dentista here in Cuernavaca is a specialist in dental implants and Esthetic orthodontist. She has told me that it takes at least 18 months to do an implant properly. First an examination must be done to determine if you need a bone transplant so your jaw will support the implant base, if a bone graft is needed sufficient time must pass to determine if the graft is living, and has bonded to your own jaw. After the base is implanted in your jaw, enough time must pass to see if your body is going to reject it as a foreign object. If the base bonds to your jaw properly, only then may a tooth safely be attached to it.


She also said it will cost approximately $21000 Pesos per implant, maybe a little more, and maybe a little less But $21000 Pesos is the average here in Morelos. $21000 Pesos is approximately $1,684 US Dlls. Not cheap, but much lower than US fees.


You are considering some serious oral surgery don't rush into it. Find a dentist that has the education and training to do the procedure, not all of them are qualified, consult with him/her to decide whether to proceed.
