Dental Implant Process in 5 simple steps:

Benefits of Removing Your Wisdom Teeth

Prevent Infection

When your teeth only partially erupt through the gum, bacteria can enter around your tooth and cause infection or swelling.

Avoid Damaging Other Teeth

Wisdom teeth overcrowd your neighboring teeth and put pressure on their roots. Removing them reduces the risk of misaligned teeth or the need for braces down the line.

Reduce Pain in Your Face

Wisdom teeth can cause pain in the temporomandibular joint connected to your jaw and skull. This leads to pain in your jaw and face area leading to persistent headaches.

Improve Taste

Removing your wisdom teeth can lead to a 10% improvement in your tasting ability after the affected area has fully healed.

Decrease Risks of Oral Disease or Inflammation

Untreated wisdom teeth can lead to gum disease & long-term inflammation, two conditions that are difficult to treat in the long term.

Avoid Future Orthodontic problems.

An untreated wisdom tooth could damage your other teeth and may lead to the need for a root canal, dental crowns, or extractions of neighboring teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most popular techniques to replace missing or damaged teeth. Here are the top benefits of getting a tooth…

They last a lifetime.

Crowns typically last 5-10 years, & dental bridges usually last around ten years. Bio-compatible titanium implants (meaning your body won’t reject them) can last a lifetime.

Prevent bone loss

Within the first year after a tooth extraction, the bone area under the tooth loses 25% of its volume. An implant replaces the root of your tooth & the tooth itself, so the natural bone growth process is restored.

Improve oral health

Dental implants improve chewing & biting functions, putting less pressure on the teeth around your extraction. They also help you avoid gum disease because the gap created by a missing tooth attracts food & bacteria.

Improve speech

Missing multiple teeth can alter speech patterns over time. Similarly, patients often report that loose or slipping dentures can negatively affect their speaking ability. Dental implants make it possible for patients to maintain standard speech patterns.

Boost your confidence

Dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Boost your self-esteem with a tooth implant that will last a lifetime. Stop worrying about missing teeth and restore your confident smile with a dental implant today in Tijuana, Mexico.

Won't get cavities

Although you will need to brush your artificial teeth just as you would your natural teeth, the material your tooth implant is made of will not decay over time.
With an artificial tooth, you never again need to worry about a cavity.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I prepare for wisdom teeth removal?

Preparations for wisdom teeth removal in Mexico may feel like a daunting process, but it helps to know what to expect. Here are some tips to prepare for your procedure:

  • Talk to your dentist about any questions or concerns before scheduling your surgical procedure. The first appointment is the best time to learn more about the extraction type you need and what you can expect from the recovery process.
  • Find out what anesthesia and sedation are used during wisdom teeth removal in Mexico. If heavier sedation is used, you may need to ask a friend or a family member to pick you up and transport you home or to your hotel following the procedure.
  • Obtain all the necessary tests to prepare before the procedure, including bloodwork or dental x-rays. These are often performed to ensure the dentist knows where the wisdom teeth are and whether or not you are a good candidate for certain anesthetics and sedation often used during these procedures.
  • Obtain all necessary medications to be taken after the surgery, if any. This includes any prescription pain medications the doctor may recommend after your procedure. You should pick up medications at a local pharmacy before the extraction so that they are on hand the day of the procedure.
  • Arrange for someone to transport you to and from your appointment if you are having heavier sedation during your treatment. A friend or family member can take you back to your hotel room or home after extractions and monitor you afterward.
Is wisdom teeth removal a major surgery?

No, wisdom teeth removal in Mexico is generally considered minor surgery. Most people who have their wisdom teeth removed can go home the same day and quickly recover. Depending on the number of teeth removed and the difficulty of the procedure, recovery time varies.  Typically, however, it takes just one to two weeks. In cases where patients have simple extractions performed, recovery often takes just a few days compared to more extended healing periods needed for surgical extractions. Understanding the type of extraction completed and the subsequent postoperative care is vital to fully comprehending the extent of your procedure and recovery process.

How long does it take to recover from wisdom teeth removal?

Two types of extractions are considered for wisdom teeth removal in Tijuana, Mexico, including simple and surgical. A simple extraction is performed when the tooth is visible and can be removed without cutting into the gums.  This procedure requires just a few days of recovery. A surgical extraction is performed when the dentist needs to cut into the gums to access the tooth.  Recovery from this type of procedure may require one to two weeks.

Is it ok to sleep right after wisdom teeth removal?

Many patients who leave our office after wisdom teeth removal in Mexico return home or to a local hotel to rest and recover following the procedure. When our dental team uses sedation, it is perfectly normal for patients to nap afterward. This is why many may need transportation after their appointment.

How long does the mouth bleed after wisdom tooth extraction?

The bleeding that occurs after wisdom tooth extraction depends on the complexity of the procedure and how much tissue is removed. Generally, bleeding should subside within 12-24 hours after surgery. Keep gauze firmly pressed against the treatment area for at least 30 minutes following the extraction to minimize bleeding. Avoid vigorous physical activity, drinking from a straw, and rinsing your mouth for at least 24 hours following the procedure, as these can cause increased bleeding. If bleeding persists, contact your dentist or oral surgeon for further instructions on how to address the problem.

How do I speed up the healing process after a wisdom tooth extraction?

You must closely follow post-operative instructions from your dental team to ensure proper healing and minimal discomfort during recovery while reducing the risk of complications such as excessive bleeding or infection. Rest and adequate smile care during recovery are critical to a fast and effective healing.

What should you avoid after wisdom teeth removal?
After wisdom teeth removal in Mexico, you should be careful to avoid the following:
  • Chewing on the surgical site. For a few days after surgery, avoid chewing on or around the area where wisdom teeth were removed. This can disrupt healing and increase your risk of infection at the extraction site.
  • Drinking through a straw. Avoid drinking through a straw for several days after wisdom teeth removal. The suction the straw creates can disrupt the healing process and result in dry socket, a common complication following wisdom teeth removal in Mexico.
  • Eating hard or crunchy foods. For the first few days, consider sticking with soft foods that require little chewing, such as soup, yogurt, applesauce, etc. Eating hard or crunchy foods can cause discomfort and even bleeding.
  • Smoking and alcohol consumption. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption for at least 72 hours after wisdom teeth removal, as it can slow the healing and recovery process while increasing your risk of developing an infection.
  • Participating in strenuous activities. Exercise, sports, and other strenuous activities should be avoided for at least 24 hours after wisdom teeth removal in Mexico to ensure proper healing. You should resume them only when cleared by your doctor.
  • Returning to work. If you have a job requiring extensive manual labor, you may need more time before returning to work than someone with a desk job. Keep this in mind when planning your recovery.
Does salt water help stop bleeding after tooth extraction?

Yes, saltwater can help stop bleeding after tooth extraction. Salt has antiseptic and astringent properties, which help to constrict blood vessels and reduce inflammation, thus aiding the clotting process. Mix one teaspoon of salt and warm water to use it, and swish the mixture around the mouth for a few minutes before spitting it out. Repeat this process several times daily to help reduce bleeding and speed up healing. However, avoid vigorous rinsing or spitting for at least 24 hours after your extraction, as this could dislodge any already formed clots and result in other complications.

Can I work the next day after the wisdom tooth extraction?

The answer to this question depends heavily on the type of extraction you had and how your body is healing. Generally speaking, most people can resume their normal activities the day after having a wisdom tooth extracted. However, it is essential to take things slow and be mindful of any pain or discomfort you may experience. Your job requirements may also make it harder to return to work, primarily if you work in a career where vigorous activity is required each day. Those with desk jobs may be able to return to work sooner than those who participate in occupations requiring manual labor.
