Dental implants are a wonderful advancement in dental restoration. When teeth have been removed or need to be removed, there is now an option other than dentures. Implants reinvent teeth that could have been gone for years. You must have sufficient bone to stabilize the implant. In the absence of bone stability, bone grafts are used to stimulate bone regrowth. Implants require a time commitment of at least 6 months with the exception of mini implants. The bone must accept the implant post, heal and develop strength before the tooth above the gum line can be attached.  Implants are extremely expensive in the USA and Canada and for that reason are often not an option for many.  As with all dental services in Mexico and the Dominican Republic you'll be pleased with the savings that await, and rest assure you will not compromise quality or care.
