Ocean Dental Cancun - Dental Clinic in MexicoFeatured

Ocean Dental Cancun

(805) 465-6061 Cancun, Mexico
Rating from 115 Reviews Such a beautiful place to venture while getting your teeth professionally doneAlejandra, Canada, 29 07 18

I got into a motorcycle accident a year ago and came in with an implant on my lateral tooth and 2 semi-failed gum surgeries in that area. The implant was not one they were familiar with but they successfully managed to make it work. They were able to fix the majority of my gums with another gum graft. Will probably need one more gum surgery from them to perfect the job. I came in with a lot of bone missing. I also got 5 crowns that were made in the clinic within 2 days, which I got to edit a bunch of times waiting 15 minutes in between with perfect work each time. Great place. Highly recommend if you are planning to save money and go overseas for any type of dental work. Such a beautiful place to venture while getting your teeth professionally done as if it were in Canada/USA. The periodontist was great, very knowledgeable and the rest of the doctors were as well. Very welcoming and enjoyable environment, especially from the drivers, receptionists and assistants. Dr Irma Gavaldon was always there to double and triple check that the best possible solution was carried out. Definitely returning to finish and will always go back to them for future larger work. (Unless they suddenly disappear or perform faulty work) A+

Dental Implants Are The Conservative Approach To A Bridge. Dental Implants Has Its Pros & Cons Just Like Any Other Procedure. With A Dental Implant You Can Avoid To Shave Down Two Healthy Anchoring Teeth & Go With A Single Crown, The Fact Is That With An Implant In Most Cases You Have To Wait From A 4 Month To 6 Month Period While The Dental Implant Aosseointegrates To Your Bone Before It Can Be Rehabilitated & Restored. Once The Healing Process Takes Place After Placing The Implant, You Can Return To The Clinic Where They Will Slightly Open Up Again, Remove The Healing Cap, Screw In The Abutment, Take An Impression, Have The Final Crown Made & Placed. One Of The Pros Of Having A Dental Implant Rather Than A Bridge Is That If For Whatever Reason The Crown On The Implant Were To Break, Chip, Etc... It Would Be A Whole Lot More Affordable To Replace That One Crown As Opposed To Replacing Lets Say, A 3-Unit Bridge (A Bridge Has To Consist Of At Least 2 to 3 Units, A Bridge Can Consist of As Many As 12 to 14 Teeth As Well). In Some Case There Are Other Treatments Required Before Being Able To Place A Dental Implant, Such As A Sinus Lift, Bone Graft, Membrane, Extraction, Etc... Please Keep In Mind That These Procedures Are Not Included. A Dental Implant Has A Starting Cost Of $900 USD For The Surgical Phase (Which Is The Placing Of The Implant) After 4 to 6 Months When You Come Back To Get The Implant Rehabilitated You Will Responsible For Covering The Cost Of The Abutment Which Has A Starting Cost Of $100 USD to $250 USD In Some Cases, Also You Will Be Responsible For The Cost Of The Crown Which Has A Starting Cost Of $350 USD Depending On The Material You Choose.

Dr.Motiwala Dental Clinic and Implant Center - Dental Implant OperatoryFeatured

Dr.Motiwala Dental Clinic and Implant Center

(888) 848-7639 ext: 67940 Hyderabad, India
Rating from 43 Reviews He did all the work personally and is very attentive to detailAdriano, US, 23 02 19

It’s been a year exactly since seeing Dr. Motiwala and having just had teeth checked I realised I wasted airfare returning as they are perfect. I can eat chicken ribs, corn, apples and probably tow a trailer with them. I almost went with all on four that dentists everywhere seem to push, glad I didn’t as after consultations from America to Thailand and then seeing Dr. Motiwala ’s technique which is unconventional yet much stronger in the method he anchors teeth into both sides of jaw versus just a one side anchor. He did all the work personally and is very attentive to detail, the pain was very minimal and he’s a very tenacious dentist. I know some may be doubtful of dentistry in India but the medical facilities in India are very clean. In fact, the facilities here make the hospitals in Los Angeles look like dumpsters. In truth, much if not most of the dental methods used in America are actually pioneered in India. So my advice is to take a vacation and save possibly USD $40,000 like I did come to India and go with Dr. Motiwala. Trust me you’ll be glad you did. His staff are all very nice, professional and helpful and they will provide you with a driver to show you the sites at a very reasonable price. Basically, get here and you need not do anything really, they will help you with everything. English is widely spoken in India. India is a fascinating destination, I received full mouth single piece basal implants with zirconia bridges for less than 15000 dollars and airfare was from Los Angeles around 650 dollars, less if you go with one of the Chinese airlines.

Basal Implant from $400
Dental Implants $400 - $500
Immediate Implant Placement $400 - $500
Lifetime Warranty  With the technique Permanent teeth in 3 days practiced by Dr. Motiwala,all patients can enjoy the benefits of permanent fixed bridges on implants within 3 days. The improvised technique is more reliable than traditional techniques. Having placed over 2,000 immediate loaded implants, Dr. Motiwala gives a lifetime warranty on this technique. Difficult or hopeless cases are also easily done as the technique is based on basal implants and immediate loading implants developed by Ihde Dental, a Swiss dental implant company. With the help of this technology, we have also treated diabetic patients, smokers and patients with severe gum disease with equal success. Bone buildup procedures are not at all necessary when this technique is applied. With the help of this technology, we are able to treat 98% of the cases in a procedure which has "fixed teeth", as a result within three days. Our technique does not need any bone augmentation, sinus surgery and bone grafts which anyway nobody wants. By avoiding these procedures, the patients get fixed teeth faster and at lower costs. Our steady collaboration with Ihde Dental, leaders in immediate implants has helped us in focusing on immediate loadable implants and techniques. With their advanced swiss technology and our years of clinical experience we have almost standardized rehabilitation of edentulous jaws at our center. The Permanent teeth in 3 days! method can often be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or a full mouth of teeth, upper or lower, with remarkable comfort, predictability and aesthetics. Other procedures like extractions can also be accomplished at the same time as well. As Dr. Motiwala reports, “It is possible to walk into our dental implant center with missing teeth and go back with a new set of fixed permanent teeth that are firmly anchored-not dentures or temporary teeth in 3 days.”

I have known Dr Venkat Nag for over 10 years now when he used to work at Mahavir Hospital. Ever since then, I only know of someone who is extremely hardworking. Genuine guy, kind-hearted and very skilful. He has done some brilliant work at Mahavir and here too at THE DENTAL SPECIALISTS, Hyderabad, India. The clinic is very well maintained and very hygienic. I got my full mouth implants done by him followed by dental crowns. lt feels nothing short of my natural teeth. These feel fantastic. I was always sceptical as to how it would be to have prostheses installed in your mouth but I am lucky I got to meet Dr Venkat who explained everything to me step by step so that I was aware what was happening. Credit where it's due, thank you Dr Ruthika and other staff for putting it all together for me and making me feel better again. I strongly recommend this practice for dental work.

Bordon Clinic

(202) 750-4625 Madrid, Spain
Rating from 23 Reviews Their work was very well planned and executed in every detailMarek, Nashville, 12 04 19

My initial intention was to find the best possible Dentist that would be able to perform extensive work at a reasonable price. After having everything done at the Bordon Clinic I am ready to attest that the quality of dental work I had done would warrant much higher prices! I had a near full mouth restoration including extractions, sinus floor lift surgery, several implants and porcelain crowns. Due to the complexity of work all procedures were done over time on 3 separate visits. Being a physician, I can greatly appreciate the meticulous technique, attention to the details and enormous patience of Dr Javier de la Cruz. One of the treatment session was nearly 7 hrs long and yet, from the beginning to the end, all was done with the same precision and attentiveness. All the sessions were comfortable and performed under very effective local anaesthesia. Undergoing numerous previous dental treatments in my own country the level of my apprehension was, understandably, quite substantial prior to my first appointment at the Bordon Clinic. To my greatest surprise the experience at the clinic was so remarkably positive that, for the very first time in my life, I was looking forward to each visit! Dr Javier de la Cruz, his wonderful nurse and the entire staff performed at unknown to me previously a combination of professionalism, patience, kindness. Their work was very well planned and executed in every detail. More surprisingly, every single session, regardless of its complexity, was completed only when the anticipated goal was achieved to Dr. de la Cruz' satisfaction without imposed time restriction. At this point, after completing all of the planned treatments, I am extremely happy with the results. I can not imagine having any further dental work, if ever necessary, to be done anywhere else! "

Dental Aria was the first clinic that came up in my search. The work done was good, but I’m not sure the orthodontic retainer was worth the price. I’m not sure what the average cost of a retainer is. It’s a very nice clinic - clean and stylish. I think the price I saw on the website or advert was for a different type of procedure than what I actually wanted. It was a relatively scary treatment for me, but they were really helpful in making me feel comfortable.

DENTAL IMPLANT: WHY IT MAY BE THE BEST OPTION FOR YOUTooth loss can greatly impact a person’s sense of self-esteem and self-worth; this can have a profound effect on their social and family life, and can even affect productivity at work. Losing your tooth can gradually affect the shape of your face, as the bone of your jaw begins to move inward where the root once was. When an individual tooth is lost, there are several different options. However the one that makes most sense is getting a dental implant. WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTSA dental implant is an artificial tooth root ,usualy made of titanium and lately of zirconium,used to support restorations that resemble a single tooth or a number of teeth. Dental implants can be used to support crowns, implant-supported bridges, dentures and other dental prostheses.The most common reason for hesitation is fear of pain or discomfort during surgery, and concerns that a dental implant procedure are prohibitively expensive. The pain can be addressed either local or general anesthetic which will significantly reduce the pain. In terms of cost dental implants can be a preventive of any further damage so the reward does outweigh the expense long term. REWARD VS. RISKSuccess rates of dental implant procedures are around 97%, and are considered one of the most effective tooth loss repair measures available. Your teeth can be fully restored, with the replacements having no negative effects on the surrounding teeth or gums.
