Dental Implants in Tijuana
Dental implants are the most common solution to replace the loss of one or more teeth. They are usually made of titanium, since this metal is very resistant and lightweight, in addition to being highly biocompatible.
This favors its integration into the bone and prevents the body from rejecting the implant.
Our Mexican dentist Dr. Ricardo Alvarez is our specialist when it comes to dental implants, having taken several courses that include a mini-residence from Harvard. A 36 month dental implant certificate program from Loma Linda University Adventist Health Sciences Center.
At Dental Alvarez we specialize in “digital guided dental implants”. We are pioneer in Tijuana, with the most advance technology that involves highly sophisticated computer system which places the implants so securely into the bone that there is zero mobility.

Digital Guided Dental Implants in Mexico
Digital Guided dental implants are a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in one single procedure that improves the healing process.
We use vanguard software solutions together with Strumann Brand System for dental implants treatment planning, matched with our image processing technology and software development tools to provide dental professionals an integrated advanced image-guided dental implant treatment plan.
This to provide the best 1 on 1 planning, procedure and aftercare treatment plan available in the world.
Evaluation & Digital Diagnosis
We do a panoramic radiography, complemented with targeted x-rays of the area to be treated.
We also recommend our patients to do a 3D CBCT scan, this allows an un-match accuracy and precision planning of the procedure.
Dental Implant Surgery
We will make a small incision in the gum to access the bone.
A channel is created in which the implant is inserted, once the implant is placed, the incision is closed with stitches.
Healing Abutment Placement
After 3 to 4 months of healing and integration has elapsed, it´s necessary for the patient to return for scarring.
The healing abutment will prepare the gum giving it adequate shape for the abutment and crown.
Once the healing abutment is in the mouth for a period of one to two weeks and its purpose was met, it is necessary for the patient to return for impressions.
With these impressions, the laboratory will elaborate a personalized abutment and crown. This process is very fast, simple and without any discomfort since it is done with an intraoral digital scanner.
Thanks to this advance equipment you get an immediate three-dimensional view of the area to work without having to deal with uncomfortable and messy impressions but the best of all is the precision in the final results and the reduction of error margins.
Abutment and Crown
Once the impressions are taken, the patient must return a week later to place the crown and the abutment that hold from implant.
This last appointment usually lasts 40 minutes or less.
It is essential that the patient makes periodic maintenance visits with our dentist for the proper functioning of the implant or dental prosthesis, as well as to help prolong the life of these.
We have the latest technology, with our flow and digital system optimize the time for the development of dental rehabilitations up to 40%.
We are the only dental lab in Tijuana with the complete digital system of Straumann CAD-CAM, for oral rehabilitations on Straumann Original implants.

The Cost of Dental Implants in Mexico
When people are looking for costs of dental implants, they often think that the final price includes the abutment and the porcelain crown.
Which can be included when our dentist makes a package for you. If not, the costs will be given individually. This means that dental implant has a single price and abutments and crowns have a separate cost.
Plus, take into account that probably you will pay for X-rays and scans because before any surgical procedure our Tijuana dentist must find out if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

FAQs About Dental Implants
Is there pain or discomfort during and after the implant procedure?
The surgical procedures are very well protocolized and usually do not cause much or no discomfort. The vast majority of cases are done with local anesthesia.
Only the noise of the instruments and sensations of pressure or palpitation in the area is perceived. In case the patient wishes, it can be done under conscious sedation.
During the post-operative period, when the effect of anesthesia ceases, the patient may present discomfort and inflammation. To prevent this, the dentist will give him/her/to the patient a prescription that is very important to follow and follow it to the letter.
It´s possible to place an implant on the day of extraction or is it necessary to wait?
Everything depends on whether the extraction (s) performed, had an infection. If there is no infection and a healthy or unaltered bone bed, it is possible.
In case of infection or alterations in bone quality or quantity, it is advisable to wait a while. Otherwise, the success or aesthetics of the treatment can be compromised. The length of the waiting period will depend on each patient, your dentist will let you know before the extraction.
Can I smoke after an implant surgery?
Tobacco can negatively influence the results of treatments with dental implants, even in those cases in which there is no other additional risk factor.
Among the negative effects of smoking we can mention: Disminution of the blood supply to the bone, the gum and the mucosa that surrounds it; alters the characteristics of the soft tissues of the mouth and other factors.
Can dental implants be placed in a diabetic patient?
Diabetes is a metabolic disease that alters certain functions of the organism; for example, the ability to respond to infections. It is not advisable to place dental implants in patients with uncontrolled disease.
Now, when diabetes is controlled, the patient can respond normally, with good results and without complications.
Even so, in these cases it is advisable that the evaluation protocol prior to treatment and subsequent control be more exhaustive.
What Patients Say
Had a great experience. Went in to have 3rd molars extracted. Had them both out in about 10 minutes! Felt very comfortable there. They have underground parking, so you don’t have to leave your car on the street. The price was great (compared to U.S. costs). They were very professional. I’ll be back soon for the other side!
Again I have to say the best place for dental work. Amazing staff, dentists, and assistants. I’m a huge chicken when it come to dental work. Not once did I feel uneasy or even pain. I had 8 lower teeth pulled. Go back in November for implants.
