Are you unhappy with your abominable smile caused by the absence of teeth?
Do you hate the idea of having partial dentures to replace your teeth?
Worried about your face continually sagging by your missing teeth?
Dissatisfied with the unaffordable costs of implants and crowns following a visit to the dentist?
One of the best possible options to replace your missing teeth in order to improve the functioning of your mouth or regain a lovely smile is to choose dental implants, as this option comes closest to restoring natural teeth.
However, this solution is not always realistic in Canada, as implants and crowns added to them can be extremely expensive, putting them out of reach for many people.
Fortunately, it is entirely possible to have dental implants at really affordable prices while still having the benefit of high quality dental care when traveling to Cartagena in Colombia .
But there is still more ! You are not alone in going to Colombia, because twice a year and for a period of two months, we go to Cartagena in order to organize and accompany you in all your visits to the dentist and without any additional costs.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root surgically inserted into the jawbone of the mouth. It forms the basis on which attachments can be created for different purposes.
The implant looks like a screw and is placed in the jawbone where the roots of the missing tooth were.
Over time, the bone grows around the implant, which helps keep it in place. The principle is that the implant acts in the same way as your natural tooth root.
The term implant is often used to describe the complete replacement tooth, when it is simply the part inserted into the jawbone.
A replacement tooth, retained by an implant, is made up of three parts; implant, abutment and crown.
You should be advised that a period of 3 to 6 months for osseointegration is required before placing the permanent crown.
Remember that a 3D cone beam x-ray (tomography) is required before placing a dental implant.
This allows the dentist to guide himself through this surgery as well as to determine if you have enough bone and space for the implant. If you have insufficient bone volume, then a bone graft will be necessary.
If you have lost one or more teeth due to health problems, genetic problems or an accident, then you can either live your life without your teeth or you can replace them with dental implants with crowns.
Dental implants are a potential option for anyone 18 years of age or older, but this dental treatment is not applicable or suitable for everyone. Here are the criteria if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants:
Dental implants are generally more expensive than more traditional solutions such as dental bridges or removable dentures and before accepting any dental implant work you should make sure you understand what is involved in this complete procedure as well as the costs.
During the initial consultation, the dentist needs to know the volume of the bone that will receive the implant, so a 3D tomography will be required at a cost of US $ 250 in Canada. If you don’t have enough bone volume, a bone graft is necessary and costs around US $ 700 in Canada.
The material used for a dental implant is titanium, because it is a noble material where most people have no allergy, therefore biocompatible. In addition, you have to pay for the permanent crown and it is expensive in Canada. From $ 1300 to $ 2000 us.
Here is a table regarding the prices of a dental implant in Canada, the United States, Mexico and Colombia. Note that the price of the plane ticket to Cartagena is the same as Mexico, around US $ 450. Modest accommodation in Cartagena is priced at us $ 300 per week.
On the other hand, it is not advantageous for you to go abroad for a single implant, because you have to return there a second time after 3 months, therefore after the period of osseointegration and therefore your expenses. travel are double.
Our second table shows the costs to pay for the complete procedure, therefore including tomography, bone grafting (it is quite often required), implant, abutment and zirconia crown.
