So you’re considering dental implants in Mexico? Our patients come from all over the US and Canada and they have a few things in common…they want to improve their smile and their ability to eat! Yes, dental implants are not just for cosmetic reasons! Dental implants have been around for thousands of years and have an extremely good track record. Whether you are wanting to replace a missing tooth or use them to support a bridge or dentures, we can help!
"I was very pleased with the service and the prices quoted. There would be no reason to not consider Brio Dental Clinic as a serious solution. I received three implants and one crown. Very satisfied customer."
-Fred Weston, Colorado
"I made a good decision to go! I live in Boston and was trying to take care of my teeth, but after bad genes and a lifetime of good and bad dentists, (mostly bad), I was facing a 31,000 dollar bill for implants and crowns. I went to Brio Dental with high hopes and I was not disappointed at all! It has been a few weeks since I had several teeth pulled, an implant, and 5 crowns. It took 2 days and I was really impressed with the pace of the work. I never felt rushed and everything went really well. I also got crowns that were better than I would have gotten at home, the next day. I am looking forward to having the next crown and implant done when I heal in 6 months. I know I am going to be treated well and I do not have to take a loan out! P.S. Thank you to all the staff."
"I phoned Brio and quickly received a email which outlined what I needed to provide in order to receive a quote for the work that I want done. An appointment was made and everything went just as they said it would. The clinic is clean, the Doctor and her staff all very professional and friendly. I have just returned from my visit and have three implants underway. I left the clinic with no pain whatsoever, however I do have some pain and soreness which is managed by Tylenol, but nothing that would prevent me from having this procedure again. My next appt. is in 6 months (late april, 2012) and will repost then as to the final outcome."

• Implant screw
• Implant crown or some people call it the restoration
Once the implant screw has been placed, you will wait 4 to 6 months for the implant to heal or in dental language…osseointegrate. That’s just a fancy word for when the implant integrates and becomes one with the bone. Once that occurs, you’ll be ready for the abutment and implant crown. The abutment attaches to the implant. The dentist then takes an impression and the implant crown is placed on top. Viola! The implant process is complete.
Absolutely! Say you are missing your molars in the back of your mouth and you hate wearing a partial. An implant can be used to replace the missing molar and then a bridge can be made to connect with the next nearest tooth.
What about the pain?
A lot of patients are concerned about the pain involved in placing a dental implant or they’ve spent a lot of time fixated on YouTube videos of dental implants being placed. We get it! So why not read what some of our patients have said about the pain or lack of it…
…I have just returned from my visit and have three implants underway. I left the clinic with no pain whatsoever, however I do have some pain and soreness which is managed by Tylenol, but nothing that would prevent me from having this procedure again…Chuck, Texas.
…The dentist installed my one implant with NO pain…Anne, US.
Our dentist does a great job of making sure our patients are comfortable and free from pain. We want you to return again and again to our dental clinic in Juarez, Mexico.
You need to be in good general health. Your oral health needs to be good as well. Our dentist will take a panoramic x-ray to determine if there is adequate bone for an implant, as well as perform an oral examination. In certain situations, we will need to augment the bone or perform sinus lifts prior to placing the implants. Every patient’s situation is unique and our dentist can discuss this process with you.
Did you know the first dental implant patient was treated in 1965 and died in 2006 with all of his implants intact? Implants can last a lifetime! Your jaw doesn’t know the difference between the root of a tooth or a titanium implant screw.
It takes about an hour to place one implant. Our trained dentist will help you determine the number of implants you need, but it is not uncommon for patients to have multiple implants.
It depends. We recommend prospective patients call their insurance and find out first. Even if they do not…our dental implant prices are a fraction of what they cost in the US. Most US dentist charge in the neighborhood of $3,000-$5,000 for implants. We charge in the neighborhood of $1,000 for dental implants in Mexico! And, we buy our implants from a company in Calabasas, California!
A lot of prospective patients ask us this question and we don’t mind. Not only is it a giant leap to take the first step of deciding to see a dentist, but it’s another to travel to Mexico to have dental work done! We’ve been in business in Mexico for more than ten years and have never experienced a problem or safety issue with having patients come to our clinic. And, this type of dental tourism has been in existence for years and years. If this is something new for you, you’ll be in good company because Americans and Canadians have been traveling to Mexico for years to get dental and medical care. We’d like to say it’s a new phenomenon, but it’s not!
