Replace Missing Teeth | Implant Placement | Cost of Dental Implants | Affordable Tooth Implants
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jaw bone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
The longevity of Dental Implants
When comparing the cost of dental implants in Tijuana to other tooth-replacement methods such as dentures and bridges, it is important to take into consideration the longevity offered by dental implants that are not always afforded by other, more traditional methods.
While dentures and bridges are initially less expensive, their affordability can be short-lived. Because these older methods require repair and replacement every 5-10 years, they are often more expensive over time. By contrast, dental implants, when properly placed and cared for, can last a lifetime.
Quality of Life
Dental implants can be seen as a long-term investment not only in terms of money but also in terms of quality of life. A dental implant is the closest thing to a natural tooth. In addition to allowing the patient to eat the same healthy foods he or she has always enjoyed, it also eliminates the day-to-day hassles and possible embarrassment that is frequently caused by dentures.

Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are metal anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jaw bone. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrudes through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jaw bone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jaw bone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist designs the final bridgework or denture, which will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.
After the implant has bonded to the jaw bone, the second phase begins. The surgeon will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. Our dental team can then start making your new teeth. An impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The replacement teeth are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.

I had such an amazing experience. As a single mom and teacher I could never have afforded to have this work done at home and the quality was so much better than work I’ve had done in the US. Thank you so much for my brand new smile!! Everyone keeps commenting that I just can’t stop smiling and it’s true!!

I am thrilled with the service and skills of Dr. Leon and his staff dentists and front and back office professionals. They use up-to-date techniques and equipment and have their own lab for things like crowns, abutments, night guards. If they don't have an in-house specialist for "extras" such as for root canals, sinus lifts, orthodontia, they bring in an experienced affiliated team dentist to perform these. I was able to send them my X-rays taken from my own dentist in CA and we had a "plan" together before I even arrived. I knew I needed several extractions and 6 implants (mostly molars) but I also needed additional support work like two sinus lifts and bone grafts to strengthen the gums for the new implants. They took their own X-rays using a surround X-Ray machine to make sure they had the most updated, sophisticated and clear X-rays. Everything went like clockwork, very efficient. Even with the 3 trips by air over 9 months (some folks may need only two) I still saved thousands of dollars. The cost here is about ¼ - 1/3 the cost of implants in the US. I flew to/from San Diego airport and their wonderful driver, Fernando, picked me up at the airport/curbside and drove the 20 minutes across the border to their clinic and then to/from my hotel. I would leave my city in the Bay Area at 8am and was in the chair by 10am. Easy peasy! And I have six new functional teeth and can chew properly again!! I have to add that Tijuana is a bustling, thriving modern city, and, as a woman traveling alone, I never felt threatened and walked everywhere unescorted. Everyone I met was friendly and nice. The whole experience is wonderful.
Please read this if you’re scared to leave the states and seek care in Tijuana Mexico , I promise you won’t regret it! I did my research and wavered between which clinic to go to in MX, the most hospitable and accommodating was Dental Brush by far. Full professional English speaking staff, they saved me a ton of $ , booked my hotel, which was perfect, with restaurant, bar, gym, and most of all safe. The Dental office has security as well. I was provided from rides from airport across the boarder. Believe me, I’ve been threw a plethora of dental care her in the stated& it doesnt compare to the care that Dental brush provides to make you comfortable, safe and I’m thrilled with my I’m plants that have a warrentee for life!
