Why Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a peaceful small country in Central America, known throughout the world for its high quality, low cost dental care. Politically stable, and with no army...


"I was living in Portland, OR and needed several crowns and other procedures. My ODS Plan P+ dental insurance (one of the best at that time) covered just part of the treatment and the annual maximum covered was $2000."

What is the procedure involved in dental implant treatment?

The treatment consists of two stages: A surgical phase and a prosthetic phase.

The surgical phase consists of the placement of the artificial roots or implants inside the jawbone. It is performed with local anesthesia and is painless. Sedation and general anesthesia are options for nervous patients. The duration of the intervention is from one to two hours, depending on the number of implants, which will remain covered for two to six months (depending on the area of the mouth where they were placed). In some cases a second very minor surgical procedure is needed afterwards to uncover the tip of the implants, especially in aesthetically important areas.
