But First, What is a Dental Implant? A dental implant is a restorative procedure to replace teeth, this implant is fixed on the bone below the gum to act as a tooth root. A dental implant usually has 3 components: The implant (root), the abutment and the crown (dental piece) some new implants usually made from zirconia include the abutment as they are made from a single piece.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Having Dental Implants is for anyone who is missing one or several teeth and has enough healthy bone density to proceed with the treatment.

There are several benefits from having dental implants aesthetically and functionally speaking, restoring your jaw bone due to the absence of teeth roots for example.

Comprehensive Dental Evaluation with state of the art technology

For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. 

The first step in our dental implants treatment process involves x-rays, and a 3D CBCT scan as well as a clinical examination. There’s an important reason to do it all: we need to assess the health of your jaw bone to check for bone loss or other issues and decide whether the dental implant is a good option for you.

If getting a dental implant is a viable option, then all those scans will help us make a 3D Printed Surgical guide to ensure the correct inclination and placing of your dental implant especially for teeth that are difficult to access like placing molar implants of helping Dr. Zamora and Dr. Javier Paz ensure your treatment is a success.

    Different types of Dental Implants

    When we are talking about dental implants there are a lot of ways to classify them

    By Type

    Mini Implants: This are the smallest type of dental implants they are commonly used to place snap on dentures and not recommended for single teeth pieces because of their reduced diameter may not be strong enough to absorb the regular impact of a bite. Although there are used sometimes on front and canine teeth when space is minimal.

    Short Implants: Bicon Short implants are smaller than a regular implant and are used in places where bone grafting might not get the best results. Thanks to their smaller size is a good graft less implant option for single teeth. 

    Regular Dental Implants: This type of implants are the best option because they have the perfect size and diameter to safely absorb teeth constant impact. Sometimes bone grafting is needed to achieve a better quality of bone density. On healthy patients this is the most recommended dental implant option.

    All on 4 Implants: They are almost identical to regular implants the difference is they have special abutments that allows them to be placed tilted inside the jawbone at a max. of 45° this type of dental implants are used to fix a full arch denture instead of single teeth.

    Zygomatic Implants: These are the longest types of dental implants and contrary to all the other types of implants this is placed on the zygoma bone (cheek) as a solution for patients who have an advanced deterioration of the upper jaw bone to get an other dental implant fixed. This might be as well the last resort for edentulous patients and is never used on bridges or single implants.

    The Best Dental Implant Materials

    By Material

    Titanium Implants: This is the most common material used on implantology they have the best and most advanced dental implant technology.


    Ceramic Dental Implants: Also known as Zirconia Implants are a newer non-metal material that has higher biocompatibility with the bone and is gaining popularity especially on the holistic dentistry field.

    The Best Dental Implant Brands

    By Brand

    There are a lot of high-quality dental implant brands but like in a lot of industries, there are two companies that rise to the top we might name them as the giants of the dental implant industry thanks to their constant improvement in technologies and dental implant solutions. 

    Straumann Neodent: One of the first dental implants companies known for their Swiss gold standard and gained a lot of market share thanks to NeoDent recently fusion.

    Nobel Biocare: Known for the patented All on 4 Treatment and of course their All on 4 Dental Implants

    Dental Implants for Seniors

    Having Dental Implants at an advanced age isn't a contradiction for the Implant Procedure although certain conditions that come with aging may contribute to the risk of a dental implant failure such as bone regeneration, bone density and, deterioration of the bone 

    Dr. Hugo Zamora from Cancun Dental Design evaluating a patient

    What type of Dental Implant is the best for you?

    Single Tooth Dental Implants: This is placed to replace a missing tooth in order to help the other teeth preserve their natural position and stop bone loss.

    Implant Fixed Dental Bridge: An implant-supported bridge is needed when two or more teeth are missing in an area. It also may be used when your dentist is concerned that you might put too much pressure on individual implants that are not connected to each other. The implants will be placed next to natural teeth, the natural teeth and surrounding gums must be in good health. If you don’t have enough bone to place and support the dental implants, the supporting bone can be built up using bone augmentation or grafting before the actual implant procedure begins. The “all-on-four” technique is used when all teeth are missing in an arch either upper or lower.

    Implant Fixed Dentures: This is a full arch solution for edentulous patients and can be classified according to the missing alveolar bone density

    High Alveolar Bone Density

    Using straight regular implants or All-on-4 tilted implants to maximize stability

    All on 4 Cancun Process

    Mid Alveolar Bone Density

    Using mini implants with ball abutments where the denture snaps with pressure.

    Bone Graft In Mexico

    Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute.

    A successful bone graft allows your jaw bone to be strong enough to support your dental implant.

    Most dental bone grafting procedures are done to restore your bone to its previous form following tooth loss, gum disease or trauma. Bone grafting may also be used to maintain bone structure after tooth extraction.

    Restoring and maintaining facial bone structure is important for several reasons. Many dental procedures, such as dental implant placement, require that the bone be as close to its original dimension and position as possible for optimal results. Also, the jaw and other facial bones support the skin and muscles that are responsible for our outward cosmetic appearance. Without the support of the underlying bone, our faces can look prematurely aged.

    The bone graft procedure

    The surgeon will use a special bone grafting material and graft it onto your jaw bone.

    You will then have to wait, most likely several months, while the graft creates enough new, strong bone to make sure that the implant will be stable and secure.

    It is possible if you only need a minor graft that the procedure might be able to be done at the same time as the implant surgery.
