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."

Is dental implant treatment expensive?

Dental implant treatment is sophisticated and demands a very complex armamentarium. More than one experienced professional (specialist) is required. The components used have to be very precise, and precious metal alloys (gold, silver, palladium) have to be used in the prosthetic phase. The implants and the prosthetic components have to be from a recognized brand. All of this makes dental implant treatment more expensive than tooth supported treatment, at first. But over time, since implant treatments last longer, require less maintenance and lead to less additional procedures, like the redoing of tooth-supported bridges or dentures (which sometimes implies root canals, extraction of supporting teeth, longer bridges, etc.); implant treatment becomes actually less expensive, and will prevent the loss of more natural teeth.
