Clinically proven, long-term solution
Save Money

Short Bicon Dental Implants can lower treatment costs by reducing or eliminating the need for surgical bone augmentation procedures (Bone Grafting).

Save Time

Short Implants can reduce dental appointments and overall treatment time since bone augmentation procedures typically require 6-9 months of healing before beginning implant treatment.

Clinically proven, long-term solution

Bicon Short Implants are scientifically explained and clinically proven to provide a reliable and long-term solution. Unlike other short implants, Bicon Short Implants have stood the test of time. They have been in continuous clinical use since 1985 — over three decades. Bicon Short Implants can often be placed in areas where longer implants cannot be placed at all, due to minimal bone height.

QUALITY MATERIAL
Bicon Short Dental Implants

Bicon’s unique plateau design follows sound bioengineering principles which allow for the use of Short Implants. Its unique bacteriallysealed, locking taper, implant to abutment connection provides for 360˚ of universal abutment positioning — offering restorative flexibility unmatched by other implant systems.

The sloping shoulder of the Bicon implant consistently provides for gingivally aesthetic restorations. These restorations are easily achieved because the bone that is maintained over the shoulder of the implant provides support for the interdental papillae.

Stop Smoking

history 3 weeks before surgery

Smoking and Dental Implants don’t go together. Why did you lose your teeth / tooth in the first place. We know smoking can be difficult to quit but we insist that patients stop smoking at least 3 weeks prior to their Dental Implants. In rare cases we might ask you to quit sooner. Smoking can interfere with healing by constricting and decreasing blood flow all over the body which may prevent the wound from healing properly. Do not resume smoking after surgery until you are given permission by our dental surgeon.

Stop Drinking

history 3 weeks before surgery

We know you will be on vacation and the all-inclusive bar might be tempting. Please try and stay away from alcohol consumption for a minimum of 5 days prior to your procedure. Alcohol causes increased bleeding, increases the chances of infection, depresses immune functions and may interfere with wound healing.

Make a list of all medications

(over-the-counter and prescribed)

Please check with your Physician about suspending any medication prior to arrival.

You will be instructed by our surgeon or patient counselor to temporarily discontinue certain medications in the weeks ahead.

Check your Refrigerator

history 3 weeks before surgery

It is important that you maintain a healthy diet. You will be on a soft mechanical diet or some form of a modified diet tailored to your surgery. It is important that you follow these instructions! It is a good idea to stock up on protein supplements like BOOST or Ensure. Various softer foods like well cooked pastas, eggs, soup / broths, and yogurt are also good ideas. We will provide you with a list of dietary suggestions in your post-op packet as well.

Stop 2 weeks before until 2 weeks after surgery

  • Take a Multivitamin tablet daily. Most multivitamins contain some form of vitamin E, however this is acceptable to take prior to surgery. We do ask that you refrain from taking additional vitamin E.
  • Take Vitamin A – 8,000-10,000 units, twice a day. This has well-documented beneficial effects on surgical healing and will also fuel your immune system.
  • Take Vitamin C – 1,000 mg., twice a day. This is essential for collagen synthesis, which is part of normal wound healing. Your need for Vitamin C will increase after surgery.
  • Take Pineapple enzyme (from a health food store), twice a day, this helps to relieve the swelling associated with surgery. This anti-inflammatory promotes healing.
Get proper nutrition and rest

Additional Information
Oral Hygiene

Standards of good oral hygiene are critical for the success and functionality of the implants and restoration. The best way to prevent infection and ensure healing is to keep your mouth clean. Clean your mouth thoroughly after each meal beginning the day after surgery. Use a soft bristle toothbrush and toothpaste after meals and at bedtime. Use of a dental waterpik is highly recommended to irrigate underneath the denture to flush out debris.

Bleeding

Minimal bleeding is expected after this implant procedure. The best way to stop bleeding is to place a damp piece of gauze in the mouth and gently bite for 30 minutes. Rest quietly with your head elevated. If bleeding continues, use gauze for an additional 30 minutes. Pink or blood-tinged saliva may be seen for 2-3 days following the surgery and does not indicate a problem. Suture material may last 2 to 3 weeks and should be left alone. Do not pull or cut the sutures yourself.

Swelling

Swelling is the body’s normal reaction to surgery and healing. The swelling will not become apparent until 24 hours after surgery and will not reach its peak for 2-3 days. After this time, the swelling should decrease but may persist for 7-10 days. Swelling may be minimized by the immediate use of ice packs. Apply the ice packs to the outside of the face 20 minutes on and then 20 minutes off while awake for the first 24 hours.

Medication / Pain

Unfortunately, most oral surgery is accompanied by some degree of discomfort. If you do not have an allergy to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications we recommend taking this prior to the local anesthetic wearing off. More severe pain may require a narcotic pain medication. Narcotic pain medication will make you drowsy, do not drive or operate mechanical machinery while taking the prescription. You may also be prescribed an antibacterial mouth rinse which should be used twice daily in the first two weeks following implant surgery. Post-operative antibiotics should be taken as directed and always take entire course of the prescription. All medications should not exceed the recommended dosage.

Diet

After General anesthetic or I.V. sedation, start with liquids. While numb, patients should avoid hot liquids or foods. Your food intake will be limited for the first few days, compensate for this by increasing your fluid intake. We recommend high protein shakes/smoothies (Ensure, Special K, etc.) as meal replacement supplements. Patients are restricted to a SOFT CHEW diet for the first 6 weeks… if food cannot be easily cut with a fork… DO NOT eat it!

Activity

history 48 hours after surgery

For the first 48 hours you should rest and relax with no physical activity. After 48 hours, you may resume activity as tolerated.

Food suggestions for first 6 weeks

Eat:

  • Jell-O
  • Pudding
  • Yogurt
  • Ice Cream
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Cream of Wheat / Oatmeal
  • Soups
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Fish
  • Pasta
  • Pancakes
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Applesauce

Drink:

  • Water
  • Juice
  • Ice Chips
  • Popsicles
  • Smoothies / Protein Shakes
  • Milkshakes
Additional Information

Add soft foods when numbness is gone / Increase diet as tolerated

  • If the corners of your mouth are stretched, they may dry and crack. Your lips should be kept moist with an ointment such as Vaseline.
  • Sore throats and pain when swallowing are not uncommon. The muscles get swollen and the normal act of swallowing can become painful. This will subside in 2 to 3 days.
  • Stiffness of the jaw muscles may cause difficulty in opening your mouth for a few days. Do not force your mouth open. Massage the muscles and apply moist heat.
  • With upper jaw implant treatment, you may develop bleeding from the nose. This is usually a temporary finding and will not persist past 2 to 3 days. Avoid blowing your nose for several days.
  • An appointment with your general dentist may be needed within a few days of surgery to make any adjustments to your temporary denture.
  • Your case is individual as no two mouths are alike. Discuss all questions or concerns with your oral surgeon or implant coordinator.

Why Dental Implants in Mexico?

We ask for a minimum of 5-7 days but the more time you can give us the better (for complicated cases including extractions, Full Mouth cases, or upper and/or lower Dentures needed 7 days minimum).

Can the work be done sooner?

The actual implant process is done in 1 day, but we like to have a few extra days so that we can check on your progress before you go home. We like to factor in a small margin of error in case you need your denture adjusted or to fix a loose stich, whatever the case may be.

We are not the type of clinic to get you in and out of the door as soon as possible, The doctors want to make sure that your healing correctly before you return home.

Can I put implant, abutment and crown at the same time?

This is called immediate load and it is possible for people who are candidates. You must have very good bone quality but even then, we cannot tell if you are eligible for an immediate load until the actual surgery.

If it is possible and this is what you want then we will do so, but if the risk of failure is too high we will not risk it. We want the nest outcome for your case.

Do I have to come back a second time?

Yes, the implant needs time to integrate with the bone before we can rehabilitate it. This usually takes about 4-6 months.

If you cannot come back what we can do is send you home with the corresponding abutment so you can have it placed at home when you are ready.

Does Dr. Gavaldon do all the work?

Our clinic is a specialty clinic, so you will be dealing with our Maxillofacial surgeon and implant specialist Dr. Javier Paz.

Dr. Gavaldon is our restorative specialist and the one who will be restoring your implants.

Dr. Javier Paz has many years of experience in oral surgeries and has had great results in the time he has been with us.

What are Dr. Paz’s Credentials?

I will send them to you in an email so that you can verify for yourself. He places implants with us on a weekly basis with great results if you like I can send you a few references.

What Guarantee do you have?

We Guarantee our work for 5 years. If there is a problem that arises due to a fault on our end we will give you free accommodations on your return and replace the implant at no cost.

We are very responsible in each case we handle. This is why we work only with trained specialists, to make sure that your work is done correctly and to avoid any hassles in the future.

What type of implants do you use?

We work with Zirconia Implants (ceramic implants) by Z-SYSTEMS that is the global leader in ceramic implants.

Can you place my implants after extracting my teeth?

Yes this is possible, but it would depend on your remaining bone structure after extraction. In a lot of cases we will place the bone graft and implant after extracting the tooth.

We would have to see an x-ray in order to determine this for certain. In these cases some bone grafting and membrane is usually required.

Can you give me a better price on the implants?

We use good quality material, so unlike some other clinics we cannot slash our prices.

What we can do is offer you a 10% discount on cash payments and a 5% discount on payments via Wiretransfer.

We also provide all of your transportation once you arrive here in Cancun so that you do not have to spend extra cash on taxi’s and buses.

Also keep in mind that our prices are all inclusive, so we do not charge you for periapical x-rays, consultation, dental related tests, specialist fees, taxes, etc.
