At ConfiDental, we try to preserve the natural health of your teeth as much as possible. However, this is not always achieved for different reasons. When a tooth cannot be saved, we aim for the best solution taking into account your dental needs and your budget as well.
That is why it would be a great idea if you learn everything about them, including how much these Dental Implants are going to cost.
Dental Implants are currently one of the most common, effective alternatives when restoring or replacing one or more missing teeth. They consist of a dental screw that is put in the maxillary bones or in the jawbone by means of dental surgery as to create a new, artificial root for the tooth. Then, a crown is placed over this implant to emulate the shape and color of a person’s natural teeth.
Advantages of Dental Implants
They look and feel like natural teeth.
They are much more comfortable and aesthetic than regular removable dentures and unlike fixed bridges, it is not necessary to wear away the layer of the other adjacent teeth.
They are as strong and stable as natural teeth.
They can last years and even decades. Today implants are a solution for a lifetime.
They require the same care as natural teeth.
Is the placing of implants painful?
Placing an implant is not a painful process due to the use of local anesthesia. However, there could be some minor inconveniences after the surgery. The specialist will probably prescript some analgesics to alleviate the pain and some antibiotics to prevent any infections.
Dental Implants are made of both Titanium and Zirconium which at the same time are biocompatible materials with the human body, hence, it is very unlikely that an allergic reaction could appear.
The Dental Implant treatment is composed of two phases and it is very likely that you would have to visit Costa Riva twice. However, you are going to be impressed of how their benefits are going to last a lifetime. Who would not love a second visit to tropical Costa Rica anyway?
Once the Dental Implant is placed, it needs to osseointegrate to the bone so it does not lose strength, durability, or stability for the final phase. The amount of time for this healing and osseointegration part can vary from person to person and it also depends where the implant is placed; be it in the maxillary or in the jaw area, but it usually takes from 3 to 6 months to be in a perfect state.
As mentioned before, this process lasts from 3 to 6 months, but you will be amazed of the results. You will be able to eat whatever you want, smile without any fear, and proudly look at yourself in the mirror with a fresh, younger look.
Are dental implants your best option?
Everybody with a good, healthy lifestyle or with controlled chronic diseases can be a candidate for Dental Implants.
The first thing to do will be to evaluate the quality and density of the bone and gums by having a 3D dental scan. If dental implants are recommended, your dental surgery can be scheduled right away.
Additionally, ConfiDental Costa Rica specializes in treating international patients. The staff is a %100 bilingual so speaking the language will not be an issue. Also, we have some special treatment packages which include both the treatment and a chance for travelling and experiencing the local culture.
