Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry, helping men and women regain both function and confidence following tooth loss.
Unfortunately, the cost of dental implants can be steep – and most dental insurance plans simply don’t cover the costs of the procedure.
Just across the US/Mexico border, Tijuana is well-known as an “insider’s secret” for excellent – and affordable – medical care, enabling visitors from the U.S. and other countries to have access to top-quality dental care promptly and for a fraction of what it would cost in their home countries.
Undeniably, the most popular type of medical care being sought in Tijuana is dental care – and more specifically, affordable, state-of-the-art dental implants.
Bio Implant Center helps patients experience all of the benefits of dental implants, using only the highest-quality materials and world-class technology – but at a cost that’s affordable for nearly everyone.
Common Dental Health Issues
We have experience working with a wide range of dental issues, and we’re here to help! Whether you’re suffering from gum disease, teeth damaged in an accident, avoided the dentist for years, or simply have weak teeth, our dental team will help you decide if dental implants are right for you.
Unhealthy or missing teeth can happen for a variety of reasons. They might be the result of a lifetime of wear and tear. Or maybe it's genetics. Regardless of the reason, dental implants provide a long-term tooth replacement solution.
Dental Implant Treatments
One of the reasons why dental implants are becoming the new standard in tooth replacement is their versatility. Whether you’re looking to replace a complete row of upper or lower teeth, multiple teeth, or a single tooth, dental implants can address a wide range of tooth replacement needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Dental Implant FAQ
Dental Implants are replacement tooth roots. Looking a little like a screw, an implant is surgically positioned in the jaw bone. A crown is then attached to the top of the implant to fill the gap of the missing tooth. Depending on where in the jaw implants are placed, implants have a success rate of up to 98% and with proper care they can last a lifetime.
In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold an implant. They also have to be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders such as diabetes or heart disease, or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis.
In general dental implants are not covered by dental insurance which is why millions of people travel to Tijuana from all over the globe for affordable dental implant treatments. We accept the following US dental insurance andÂ will work hand-in-hand with you to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures. If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. They are well informed and up-to-date.

At Bio Implant Center we offer Titanium and Zirconia Dental Implants. Both Titanium and Zirconia ceramic implants have advantages and disadvantages that you should be aware of before choosing your implant material. The question of which dental implant material is right for you requires an in depth conversation with our implant specialist Dr. Edgar Montano DDS. Book a complimentary phone consultation to discuss what’s right for you.
The first step in a dental implant process is the development of an individualized treatment plan. You will need to schedule a phone consultation at a time convenient for you so that we can address your specific needs and provide coordinated dental care on an implant option that’s best for you.
Next, the tooth root implant. This process depends on which type of implant you decide to go with. In the case of titanium implants, a small post made from titanium is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As your jawbone heals, it will grow around the implanted post, anchoring it securely in the jaw. The healing process can take 6-12 weeks.
Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post called an abutment is attached to the post securely to hold the new tooth. To make the new tooth (or teeth), we will make impressions of your teeth and create a model of your bite, basing the new tooth (or teeth) on this model.
A replacement tooth, or crown, is then attached to the abutment. We will also match the color of the new tooth (or teeth) to your natural teeth. Because the implant is secured within the jawbone, the replacement teeth will look, feel and work just like your own natural teeth.
With titanium implants the bone needs to grow and bond with the titanium implant (osseointegration) and could take up to two stages. In some cases if a patient is already suffering bone loss and is in need of bone grafting before implantation, treatment will take 3 stages with a much longer healing process (3-6 months). Once complete, the healing time will take 3 months for lower jaw implants, and 4 months for upper jaw implants. Only once the implants are healed and are solidly in place will we do the final stage of placing the abutment and crown.
With ceramic implants the overall treatment is determined on the day of surgery, and healing can take 3-6 months depending on the condition of the bone.
Treatment time will vary depending on your dental situation. A disadvantage of dental implants is the time needed to finish the treatment. You need to be patient and be willing to come to Tijuana for two or three trips to finish dental implant treatments. If time is an issue for you, an alternative may be fixed bridges or partial dentures. Talk to us about your specific needs so we can help you achieve the best outcome for your dental health.
If you decide on titanium implants, for both bone grafting and implantation we will need you in our clinic for one visit. A second visit the next day may be needed if you are having temporary teeth made. The final stage can take 2 or 3 visits over 3-5 days, depending on the type of crowns, and number of crowns.
With ceramic implants we will need at least 2 days if we have already had a phone consultation and an x-ray. Otherwise, if we need to do an initial consultation, x-ray and order the implants, we will need at least 4 days.
Travelling to Mexico for Dental Implants FAQ
There’s alot of misinformation when it comes to the safety of Mexican dental tourism. There are parts of Mexico that aren’t recommended for tourists, but border towns such as Tijuana and popular cities are safe and cater to travelling dental patients.
YES. Dr. Edgar Montano DDS is a top-ranked Tijuana biological dentist and implant specialist, and for good reason. With two decades of experience and training, Dr. Montano is a certified CeraRoot specialist, helping patients replace missing teeth using the most advanced technology and state-of-the-art dental implants for results you can count on.
Buyer beware, not just in Mexico but any country, including the U.S. Comparing prices is important but be sure you understand what you’re paying for. Not all dentists use the same quality dental materials and not all doctors are equal. Regardless of what treatment or procedure you compare, be sure you’re comparing apples to apples. At Bio Implant Center you pay 40-60% LESS for top quality dental treatments than US dental care.
Yes, our dental team speak English and Spanish.
Bio Implant Center uses only the most advanced technologies, modern equipment and high quality biocompatible materials.
Absolutely. The safety and health of our patients is our top priority. When you book your appointment, ask us!
From porcelain crowns to titanium posts and dentures, our dental clinic uses the same exact materials in your mouth as you would if you received dental care in the U.S.A.
If you’re worried about getting sick from drinking water in Mexico, you’ll be happy to know that our water is filtered through systems to keep it safe.
Yes you can. Our dental implants are less costly than U.S. dental care because there’s less bureaucracy, “red tape” and expense involved in providing healthcare in Mexico. And that means we can pass those savings on to our patients, with no reduction in quality of care or implant design. Compare costs here.
In the USA, we’re taught that higher costs equal higher quality. This just isn’t the case with dental care in Mexico. Several factors contribute to the price difference like a lower cost of living, rent and salaries.
Absolutely. If something is not right, you can come back to Bio Implant Center and have it corrected at no additional cost.
