There is the Museo Casa Juarez, a nineteenth-century building which briefly housed the government in the 1860s. It is now a museum with an exhibition on the history of Mexico and the state of Chihuahua.
Further afield, across the U.S. border, patients often choose to visit the Franklin Mountains State Park, 16 km away, which is home to cacti and desert wildlife such as coyotes and golden eagles.

A bone graft or bone augmentation may be required for patients who have a soft or thin jaw bone and are having dental implants.
Patients may need to stay longer if they are having a bone graft from the hip bone. A longer stay may also be required for cases where the sinus is affected.
A crown can be used to save a damaged tooth by completely encircling it. In order to attach a crown, the tooth is reduced to a stump which the crown can be cemented onto. Many clinics specialize in natural looking, tooth-colored materials, and patients can choose from a range of materials to suit their budget.
The time required depends on how long is needed to create the crown or crowns in the laboratory. Clinics with an in-house lab are usually quicker.
A dental implant is a small screw-like device that is placed into the jawbone, to replace a natural tooth. The implant acts like a tooth's roots, and over time the dental implant becomes fused to the natural bone, making it stable.
The first trip usually takes a few days. The second trip may take longer, depending on how long it takes for the crown(s) or bridge to be created.
Anesthesia is administered to patients to numb a specific area or to make a patient unconscious while performing a procedure. The main types of anesthesia are local, regional, and general anesthetic. They are sometimes given in combination with one another, as well as in combination with oral or intravenous (IV) sedation.
Patients can travel immediately after local anesthetic. After a general anesthetic, patients can travel as soon as the effects have worn off and their condition is stable.

I have spent my whole life trying to have straight,white, healthy,teeth. I've also spent well over $30,000 on braces, root canals, bridges,and crowns. At 41 years old, I was losing the battle and resigned to the fact that I needed dentures. I cried all the way to the oral surgeon office and had all my teeth pulled. The worst part was the dentures they gave me. The fit was terrible, they did not care about the anesthetics or even the functionality. I was quoted from 5 different dental offices here in the U.S. from $30,000 to $80,000 for eight implants and snap on dentures. I found Rio Grande Dental, called and spoke with Lori. She answered ALL of my questions, helped me with travel arrangements, and I traveled there and had the implants placed. The driver, Ozzy, picked us up, drove us to and from the hotel and helped us at the pharmacy. He was amazing. Dr. Jessica Nitardy was highly skilled, and I immediately trusted that she understood my needs in wanting something better than dentures, being a 40 yr old woman. I have been healing for over 4 months and have my return appointment at the end of this month (January), I am so excited to get my porcelain implants! I cannot tell you how long I've waited for that day. I have so many people who know what all I've been through and I'm so excited to show them my perfect teeth. Do not hesitate to call Rio Grande Dental, there is no reason In the world to pay outrageous prices and still get dentures in the U.S. I am so glad I found Rio Grande Dental. Much love from Oklahoma!
Dr. Nitardy’s office is small, intimate and provides great service. I have nothing but positive things to say. She was very thorough, both in her exam and in her discussion of treatment plans with me. I hate to go to the dentist but Dr. Jessica Nitardy makes it more than bearable. I highly recommend her.
I think myself so fortunate to have Dr. Nitardy and her staff for my dental care. I know it is only through their professionalism and care that at 70+ years I have never lost a tooth and thanks to their cosmetic artistry they look great! Everything is state of the art and her staff is knowledgable, professional and friendly.
Awesome Experience Dr. Nitardy! Her staff is very friendly and outgoing each time I communicate with them. She is very knowledgeable and even takes the time to actually listen to her patients. Rarely do you get a doctor that actually treats you like they care and is 100% genuine. Since my first visit I’ve referred several of my co-workers as well as family members to her. Keep up the great work!
