Gaps in your smile can cause you to feel self-conscious and make normal activities, such as eating and speaking, more difficult.
Dr. Jose Valenzuela Jr. can place and restore dental implants, the most stable and secure tooth replacement option available.
So why should you choose implants at our practice in Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico?
Dental implants are threaded titanium posts that are used to attach dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures directly to the jawbone. They are substitutes for tooth roots and like tooth roots, they transfer regenerative energy to the jawbone each time you eat or speak. When dental implants successfully fuse with your jawbone, they can prevent bone recession and help you maintain a full facial structure.
Because they are the only dentistry treatment designed to stop additional bone recession, dental implants are considered by our Los Algodones office–and dentists worldwide–to be the best way to replace a missing tooth.
While implant-supported restorations do cost more than other tooth replacement options, they are an investment in your long-term oral health.
With implants placed at our Los Algodones office, you can enjoy unparalleled stability as well as a healthier jawbone and an overall stronger smile.
If you wear traditional dentures, you know the discomfort they can cause when they slip or click. Because removable dentures are held in place by suction and dental adhesive, they don't always look or feel like natural teeth.
Patients who have dentures that are in good condition can come to our Los Algodones, Mexico, office to explore the possibility of converting their dentures into implant-supported restorations. After placing your titanium implants and abutments, Dr. Gonzalez can retrofit your existing dentures to fit securely onto your implants, giving you a newfound sense of security and comfort.
At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center in Los Algodones, we use advanced dental technology to perform all stages of dental implant treatment. We first take a computer tomography (CT) scan, which is uploaded into our specialized design software. Using this information, Dr. Valenzuela can design a precise surgical guide before your procedure and print a 3-D model in the office.
We offer a range of other state-of-the-art treatments, including immediate implant placement and PRGF® (Plasma Rich in Growth Factor), a technology which promotes faster healing after dental surgeries.
But do I qualify for dental implants?
Most patients who are missing one or more teeth qualify for dental implants. However, certain conditions can impact your candidacy for the treatment. Dr. Valenzuela can assess your oral health during an initial consultation at our office and recommend procedures to restore your candidacy for dental implants.
Some factors which can affect your implant candidacy include:
When you visit our Los Algodones dental office, you receive high-level care and attention at an affordable price. Because the overhead costs are lower for dentists in Mexico than they are for providers in the United States, we are able to provide exceptional dental implant care at a significantly lower cost.
Our dental office has been established in Los Algodones for over 20 years, and we have earned an impressive reputation for advanced, affordable dentistry with patients throughout North America.
Dr. V and his team are amazing! They care about the patient, & they show it! And With a price tag that is 1/2 of the cost of that in the States, it’s no wonder so many folks from all over travel to see him.
In order to undergo dental implant treatment at our Los Algodones, Mexico, dental office, you will need to be in good oral and overall health. In the months leading up to your visit, maintain your health and abstain from unhealthy habits like smoking, which increases your risk of complications.
If you are lacking sufficient jawbone tissue, Dr. Valenzuela can perform a bone graft several months prior to your procedure. Once you are healed, you will come back to our office for the next phases of your treatment.

Take a look at the treatment timeline...
You will be advised to rest for the remainder of the day following your surgery. Plan to lie down with your head elevated by pillows in order to minimize swelling. You will be provided with pain meds at this time to help maintain your comfort.
Consume only liquids and very soft foods (such as gelatin and pudding) for the first two days after surgery. Firmer foods such as mashed potatoes and pancakes can be resumed after three days. You can resume a normal diet after a week.
Some light physical activity can be resumed a few days after your surgery, but take care to avoid any strenuous activity or bending until at least a week after your procedure.
Dr. Valenzuela discusses implant candidacy as well as the treatment process.
Once everything is finished, how will my smile look?
Although you will receive some healing and aftercare instructions upon leaving our Los Algodones office, you will be ready to enjoy your new smile almost immediately.
Replacing a missing tooth can not only improve your health; treatment can also improve your confidence and quality of life.
Because they are custom-made to your needs, every implant-supported restoration will look, feel, and fit just like a natural tooth. You can eat your favorite foods once again without worrying about dentures shifting out of place. And with proper care, you can enjoy the benefits of dental implants for several decades or even a lifetime.
Dr. Valenzuela believes that implant dentistry should be available to everyone, regardless of their budget. We provide many of the same services as dentists in the U.S. at a fraction of the price.
The exact cost of treatment with dental implants can vary widely based on a range of factors, such as:
There are more affordable ways to replace lost teeth, but none of them provide the unique benefits of dental implants. For example, if you wear traditional dentures, or if you know anyone who does, you know that regular adjustments are a necessity. These adjustments cost you both time and money. Because dental implants stop the bone atrophy that causes the jaw to change shape after tooth loss, you can expect to need far fewer adjustments.
It also pays to consider the exceptional functionality implants can provide. Implants allow you to tell a joke, smile for a picture, and indulge in all your favorite foods without having to worry about your restoration shifting out of place. As many dental implant patients can tell you, it's difficult to put a price on the improved quality of life this solution puts within your reach.
Every surgical procedure involves a degree of risk, but you can expect that Dr. Valenzuela will take advanced measures to make certain that your treatment will be as safe as possible and that the results last for many years.
Risks associated with this procedure include:
