All on 8 Dental Implants in Mexico- Cost and Packages
The All-on-8 dental implants system is a variant of the all-on-four system based on the same concept. The only difference is that 8 front implants are used instead of 4. Also, most of the All-on-4 technique use acrylic dentures while the All-on-8 use dental bridges with crowns, which provides more natural-looking teeth.
The all on 8 dental implants system in Mexico gives a perfect and bright smile without the hassle of dentures that don’t stay in place.
The all-on-8 dental implant system uses a series of high-tech dental implants to support dentures or crowns.
The All-on-eight procedure:
Your gums or jaw structure are first assessed by your implantologist, to see if your jaw can withstand the all-on-8 dental implants system. Usually, there are two stages involved in the placement of the all-on-8 dental implants:
- 2-4 days stay for the dental implant procedure
- 2-4 days stay for the bridge placement and final touches
Common Dental Implants All on 8 Types
There are many materials used for dental implants, from which derive different types of all-on-8 dental implants. There are two main groups: ceramic dental implants and metallic dental implants.
Ceramic dental implants are absolutely metal free and very resistant to acids and bases, offering an excellent alternative to Titan implants. Also ceramic implants are biocompatible and biologically neutral. This means that the compatibility with bone and gum tissue is excellent and therefore does not cause allergic reactions. The big plus on full ceramic implants is the aesthetic and very natural look. The abutment of the ceramic dental implant is made from ceramic and the crown from the same material. The one-piece ceramic, also known as zirconium implant has no connections, where bacteria can develop, thus ensuring a better gum health.
Titanium dental implants are also incredibly durable and long-lasting. The big advantage is that although it is a meal, it allows patients with titanium implants to be safely examined with MRIs. Besides titanium is one of the only metals that allows your body’s natural bone and tissue actually bond to the artificial implant. Other advantages for titanium implants are the strength, but lightweight aspect. It is also corrosion resistant, non-toxic, and therefore cost-efficient. The abutment of the titanium dental implant is made from titanium and the crown from porcelain. Porcelain-fused-to-titanium crowns with an all porcelain collar won’t expose the titanium margin at the gum line as gums recede over time.
Porcelain dental implants make an excellent choice for restoring front teeth. Porcelain resist stains better and because it better mimics the light reflecting properties of natural teeth is the most cosmetically pleasing of all of the different types. Even though porcelain crowns are made from ceramic material, they are quite strong and sturdy, allowing patients to bite and chew as they normally would. The abutment of the porcelain dental implant is made from titanium or zirconium and the crown from porcelain. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns with an all porcelain collar can cover perfectly the hidden metal margin at the gum line as gums retracts over time.
Gold dental implants are still preffered by patients because they are durable, resistant and safe. Depending on the colour preference of the patient, either a white or yellow gold alloy can be used. Gold material is mostly used for molar restorations because it can withstand excessive changes in oral temperature that happen when a person takes hot and cold drinks. Also, its surfaces can endure a high polish that can prevent plaque formation and reduce tooth abrasion. The drawbacks for this choice are the costs and the aesthetic aspect. The abutment and the crown of the gold dental implant are made from the same noble metal. Patients with strong bites and those with habits such as grinding or clenching might be better go with a gold crown. For aesthetic purpose, porcelain-fused-to-gold crowns with an all porcelain collar can eliminate the hidden gold margin at the gum line as gums retracts over time.
Note: If your jaw bone structure does not allow you to get dental implants or dental implants systems you can benefit from sinus lifting or box technique.
