Dental Implants Tijuana
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 which 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 the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.

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 is 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 are frequently caused by dentures.
Evaluation for Dental Implants
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Leon, Dr. Vega, Dr. Mapula, Dr. Obeso, Dr. Garcia or Dr. Luna or by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.
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 protrude 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. Dr. Leon, Dr. Vega, Dr. Mapula, Dr. Obeso, Dr. Garcia, Dr. Luna or Dr. Borboa 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.

The initial response time on phone inquiries is extremely prompt and the receptionist has a great command of the English language. We were greeted warmly at the meeting place near the phone booths after we walked across the border. The office was very clean and sterile and the furnishings were first class and the office felt like it could have been in Beverly Hills. Their equipment is state of the art technology and each step is explained thoroughly.

I am not only getting great care but I left with some new friends everyone was very genuine. Very professional. They listened listen to my concerns and address and answered all my questions. Went over everything so I felt very comfortable that what I wanted was the procedure that would be performed I liked all the staff the doctor was great. I recommend that you just give him a call and I'm sure you will choose them for your dental needs

I am very pleased with the services performed by Dr. Leone and all staff doctors. Every member of his staff has been very helpful and kind. They have assisted me by filling out medical forms required for my employer, and made sure I was able to understand aftercare instructions to obtain the best dental results. The facility was very clean, comfortable, warm and safe.

Overall I am very satisfied and happy I found Dental Brush! Antonio earned my trust over the phone and emails, I asked him a lot of questions and he was very professional and patiently answered each one of my questions. He gets a full 5 stars all by himself! This was my first visit out of 3. I flown in the morning from the Portland, OR. to San Diego, Itzhak, the driver was there waiting for me and within 20 minutes I was across the boarder in the clinic! What an amazing service! Upon my arrival I got all the x-rays and pictures needed and a full evaluation and a dental treatment plan by Dr Samuel which was very good, caring and professional. Then I got 2 root canal re-treated, by the root canal specialist, Dr. Maveli Luna, which was very good as well, but I did not think it was appropriate nor professional for her assistant to continually, over an hour, chit chat with the doctor while the doctor was working on my mouth. The Dr. did not stop this chit chat and I should have mentioned it while I was there, but didn't. But with that, the dr. seem good and knowledgeable. I was able to save 2 teeth because of her evaluation and I thank her for that. Lastly, I got 3 dental implants including 2 oral surgeries and extraction by Dr. E. Leon, who was very professional, confident, quick (which I am still recovering from). I have had bad teeth all my life and been to too many dentists around the world. My first impression of Dr. Leon is very high, He is confident, knowledgeable, quick, caring and very professional. I am happy I found me a new dentist that I can trust and afford. I am very appreciative of his work and everyone else at Dental Brush, you each get a 5 stars review from me. Thank you for accommodating me and I appreciate each of you for helping me to get so much done in one day! I flown out of Portland, OR in the morning and got back home in the same day, at night. and looking forward to complete my dental treatment program within the coming months.

I live in San Francisco and I had done all the prep work here on the work I needed done - bone graph, implants, root canal, and caps. At first i thought medical tourism was crazy, but I found 5 dentists, and talked to all the offices. I found my Dental Brush to be the most organized, educated, and clear of any of the offices I talked to. I took the plane from SF to San Diego and My Dental Brush picked me up, I spent 5 hours in the dental chair and then, they drove me across the boarder back to the San Diego airport. I had two dentists, the oral surgeon and the root canal specialist. I think the care was as good as I would have gotten in the US. They made sure I was pain free for the operation and understood, I was anxious. I will need to go back two more times, but that is fine. Even better, they take my dental insurance.

For something that is so painful as the operation I had, because of the staff, the doctor, and their positive vibes which was in every sense of the doctor's office environment, the pain wasn't truly that bad and I found myself truly relaxed and excited to start this process of dental implants. I look forward to when I return !
