Where do most of your patients come from?
Most of my patients are from Puebla, Veracruz, Mexico D.F, Pachuca, Tlaxcala, Oaxaca, Italy and the United States. – Mostly for implants.
Most of the foreign patients see our web site on Internet. And local patients have recommended me to their friends or relatives.
What procedures do you typically recommend and perform?
We recommend what is suitable for each patient and I can perform all of the following: metallic ceramic or zirconium ceramic crowns, full ceramic crowns (E-Max), dental veneers, periodontal treatments, dental implants, metallic ceramic or zirconium ceramic crowns on implants, bone grafting, sinus lifting surgery, etc. If necessary another specialist will see the patient for other procedures like root canal procedures, orthodontics also within our dental clinic.
What type of implants does your clinic use?
We work with BTI, NOBEL, STROUMMAN, MIS, ZIMMER I believe they fully cover all types of patients, thinking of the best ratio quality/cost these types of implants offer. All of them are compatible with North American Equipment and supplies.
Please give me a summary of the steps in the process of getting an implant at your clinic.
To start the procedure of getting an implant at our clinic, we need some studies to diagnose each case and create a treatment plan that we present to the patient, like X-Ray, photography, tomography. The dental treatment plan will include every aspect about the cost, time needed to be spent in Puebla, Mexico or other important details every patients needs to know.
Can you please provide a quick description of the surgical procedure at your clinic?
Review of record and studies, blood pressure, it is necessary we can use sedation it not we can work with local anesthesia. After the anesthesia, the gum is separated and the implant is inserted and then covered by the gum. The abutment is attached at a later date. The implant must be left for 3 to 6 months. This time is called the osseointegration phase, when the patient will have some type of temporary replacement teeth, so that the patient never has to be without teeth during treatment.
When the abutment is in place, a new impression is made. This is almost the final stage of the tooth implant procedure. Based on this final impression, our dental technician partner will carefully craft the dental crown for the implant. The crown is the artificial tooth that will be attached to the implant abutment. We require special attention and communication with the patient, to ensure the right color and shape so that the new tooth looks like the surrounding natural teeth.
When the crown is ready, we simply attach it to the dental implant. That is all there is to it.
How much do your procedures cost?
Our total cost for dental implants:
1) $1000 USD implant – the price includes post and abutment and surgery
2) Separate, there are two options for crowns on implants:
- metallic-ceramic crown on implant $255 USD
- zirconium – ceramic crown on implant $355 USD
What payment methods do you accept?
Cash, Credit card and debit card. Visa, Master card and American Express
How many trips to Mexico are required?
It is required two visits. First is for the implant placement and this stage will require a 3-5 days, to assure the after surgery check-up. The second visit is for prosthetics stage – dental crown on implant, after 4-6 months from first visit and will require a 7-10 days visit for one or two implants.
How long is the healing time like for patients who get dental implants?
The patient needs one surgery and then the process to put the crow on implant. In total, we are talking about 6 months to get everything ready.
What do advise your patients to do if they have a problem with their implant?
We pay the greatest attention possible to the initial phase, starting from request a very recent X-Ray as accurate as possible, followed by the right type of implant suitable for the patient. If these steps are fully completed correct, I trust there should be no problem for any patient.
In case of problem with the implant, the company who provided us the implant gives us a guarantee. If the patient is not in Mexico, the implant is compatible with most of the equipment and supplies.
We offer great value to communication with all our patients all the time, starting from the first contact and even after the treatment is completed. We also request all our patients to visit a local dentist every 6 months for simple checkup and prophylaxis in order for the dental implants life to be extended to maximum.
We have had no patient travelling back to Bucharest except the two regular visits yet and we are keen to keep that number to same level.
What other costs would there be for someone travelling to your clinic from North America?
The roundtrip air ticket from US to Mexico usually starts from $400 up to $700 depending on the time of booking and season of travelling. Very decent 4-5 star hotels close to our clinic in Holyday in and city express $60-80/night.
Where do your patients stay while they are getting an implant done?
We have a list of hotels nearby our clinic we suggest to our patients.
