Age 47 Female: 4 implants for 6 teeth and bridge for 2 teeth - Cancun, Mexico
Tired of wearing partial (which comes with so many...
A little more information….
I had 4 upper front implants which will accommodate 6 teeth. The six teeth were extracted years ago and I'd worn a partial for some time and needed a bit of bone graft as well due to bone loss. I am still using my "modified" partial while the implants are healing. Dr. Gavaldon made some changes to my own existing partial in order to accommodate the surgical site while healing. The bridge is for 2 missing teeth in the back bottom left - teeth pulled from when I was a child. I considered implants here as well but due to severe bone loss it would have meant a third trip and I didn't want to commit to that - who knows - maybe I'll change my mind when I go back end of October!! lol The implants are healing very well - no issues at all. Soft food diet for a while but no pain. In fact - after the 2nd day, I didn't need anything for pain at all but everyone is different. Once the final phase is complete - I will post before and after pics.
Sharing the joy :)
I have completed phase one (implant placement) and will return in November for the final phase... I would, without hesitation or reservation, recommend Cancun Ocean Dental. I will be honest - the whole idea of getting this done outside Canada was extremely daunting - and right up until I actually sat in their chair, I was ready to bolt with fear!!! It was so much (for lack of a better term) less traumatic than I thought it would be - provided you follow the instructions of the doctor, of course! The staff certainly make it easy for you... if you go there expecting the palatial offices that you get here at home then you will be sorely disappointed - that being said - here at home you are also paying an exorbitant amount of money for that palatial atmosphere along with the services they provide - while at Cancun Ocean Dental these "same services" are provided at a fraction of the price!!! Seriously - A FRACTION!!! They are a VERY BUSY clinic so expect your appointments to run off schedule and to be sitting for a while as wait times can be rather long - I didn't mind that so much as I found out later, when it was my turn, that they are VERY THOUROUGH and determined to make sure everything is perfect for you - they will not be rushed! You can't get any better than that, can you!? All of that and an awesome vacation destination -- cannot wait to return... What a paradise!
