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."

Will dental implants last a lifetime?

In medicine it is complex to say that a treatment will last a lifetime, especially in this case because of the fact that teeth are a tool that we use constantly, every day, subjecting them to a lot of pressures and forces while being placed in a humid and very septic environment (the mouth). There are multiple studies, some over 35 years old, that show very high long-term success rates for dental implants. The most recent studies indicate that 90% of the implants placed 10 years ago, are still working properly today. This is much higher than the 50% ten-year success rate described for tooth-supported bridges or dentures.
