What are dental implants?

Implants aim to replace lost teeth in the best way possible:

✔︎ Functionally

✔︎ Aesthetically

An implant is a screw-shaped titanium fixture. It   is placed inside the gum in the mandibular or maxillary jaw, where the roots of the lost teeth used to be.

When you have lost:

✔︎ ONE TOOTH If you are missing a single  tooth, a single-unit crown  placed over an implant is the simplest, most comfortable and safest way to restore your chewing ability and the natural appearance of your teeth

✔︎ SEVERAL TEETH  If you have lost several teeth, a fixed prosthesis or crowns supported by implants can restore the functionality and appearance of your mouth.

✔︎ ALL YOUR TEETH  Today, there are also solutions for patients that have lost all of their teeth. The procedure works by placing sevral implants that anchor and support a fixed prosthesis, without the use of a palate, braces, or adhesive. Alternatively, you can use a removable prosthesis, which will be secure and stable while in use.

Comfort, well-being, and naturalness.

The most important challenge in modern dentistry is to ensure that patients who use implants and dental prostheses feel that these prostheses are part of their body, that they can eat safely and comfortably, and that these prostheses have a natural and esthetic appearance. 

 8 Years of Schooling in Europe.

Doctor José Bermúdez studied in Spain, at the University of Barcelona and at the International University of Cataluña. Spain is one of the European countries with the highest number of dental implants. Doctor Pepe finished his studies in Einsiedeln, Switzerland.


17 Years of Experience

Even when placing a dental implant seemed to be a science fiction procedure, and there was no specialty in dental implants anywhere in the country, Dr. José Bermúdez was already placing dental implants in Chiapas, Mexico.


What are the advantages of changing my old prostheses for implants?

✔︎ No Metallic claps.

✔︎ No Palate.

✔︎ No Dental Adhesive.

Dental implants are a revolutionary dental treatment that has made the inconveniences and significant restrictions caused by conventional prostheses a thing of the past. 

Given that the implants are inserted under a local anesthetic, you will feel comfortable during the procedure. Only in some cases does the treated zone present a slight inflammation during the first few days. 

✔︎ In most cases, an anti-inflammatory analgesic is enough to get rid of any lingering pains

"An implant is an investment in future which will improve your quality of life for many years to come."

Having new teeth that look and feel like your own is a priceless experience. Implants are an accessible treatment that will in fact save you money over the long term.  The cost of the procedure depends on the magnitude of the treatment.

At Salud Oral, most implant treatments can be paid in installments, over the course of 3 or more months.

What is the difference between an implant and a conventional prosthesis?

Teeth that are supported by implantas

✔︎ Perform, look and feel like natural teeth.

✔︎ Allow you to smile, talk and eat with total confidence. 

✔︎ Are comfortable and stay in place.

✔︎ Do not need the support of other teeth. 

Yes! As far as what you can eat, there is absolutely no difference between natural teeth and teeth that are supported by implants.  

50% of a treatment´s success is due to the recovery. 

Selecting a destination with a climate favorable to healing and recovery processes during dental treatments is key to a successful result. As you can imagine, climates that are too hot for example the beach are unfavorable to healing as they provoke more and longer-lasting swelling, and they oblige the patient to stay in their room, it not being recommended to go out in order to avoid being exposed to the sun and  high temperatures. 

Our clinic is located in a valley surrounded by mountains and evergreen forests, which allows us to enjoy an average temperature of 15 degrees centigrade, ideal for good healing processes. Being the most attractive colonial city in Mexico, full of pedestrian zones, magical hidden corners and cobbled streets, San Cristóbal de las Casas invites you to go on tours and walks not only in the city but also in the surroundings during the days of your dental treatment.  The food on offer is varied and delicious, and the concentration of cafes, design stores and proposals that mix modern and traditional will complete your journey and experience. 

Benefits of COLD weather

Placing a dental implant is a procedure that is easier in a cool climate than a hot one.

Heat can produce inflammation, which slows healing, and can make you, the patient, feel less comfortable in a hotter climate than you would be in a colder one. 

Colonial jewel + agreeable weather

“The most magical of the pueblos mágicos of Mexico”

Almost all year round, the climate is temperate, allowing you to spend pleasant days and nights appreciating the artistic, cultural, and culinary life of what we consider to be the Colonial Jewel of Mexico.
