Predictability is the Keynote in Oral Surgery!

Many patients seek dental care in Mexico because the advanced restorative dentistry they need – crown-and-bridge work or, more recently, dental implant restorations – is prohibitively expensive at home.

But every patient’s jaw anatomy is different, and many have lost bone since losing teeth.
