Dental Implants for tooth replacement
Samaritan dental in Tijuana, specializes in dental implants. When you have lost one or more teeth, a dental implant is a great option to replace your ability to chew, or to smile. A dental implant is surgically placed into your jawbone. after a period of healing, called osseointegration, the implant is fused to the bone. Next, during stage two, the dentist will attach an abutment onto the implant, and then have the dental lab make a prosthetic tooth or crown. The new crown is cemented onto the abutment.
Up to three teeth can be placed onto two implants, in the form a bridge. Or, if a patient has lost all of the teeth on an arch, a fixed bridge can be made, called an all on six, that can replace all 14 teeth with the use od six dental implants.
The cost of dental implants at Samaritan dental is much less than in the USA. A single implant with abutment and crown will run about $1650. In the US it will be more than double that price. Our Tijuana dentists guarantee the dental implants, and will replace them, should they fail.
