The loss of a tooth is a setback that has strong repercussions in the personal and social sphere.
To fill the empty space, traditionally dental bridges and prostheses have been used that do not replace the natural tooth, fully, neither aesthetically nor functionally.
Instead, dental implant surgery has been positioned as a replacement procedure for missing teeth, right from the roots.
It consists of the use of metal pins (similar to screws) that replace the base of the damaged tooth, on which an artificial tooth is placed that shows and fulfills all the characteristics of a natural tooth.
The implant (s) do not make noise, do not cause damage to the bone and have the additional advantage that they are not pitted, as is the case with natural teeth.
The implant process
This solution, which seems to be the work of magic, is explained by the fact that the titanium used in the implants fuses with the jaw and the materials used to make each tooth are of the highest quality.
But not everything is happiness. The dental implant has a couple of drawbacks that make it prohibitive for the low and middle income citizen. One is the long period (several or many months) that the implant process demands and, the other, the cost of each stage of the process.
The price of dental implants and the successful achievement of the goal are determined by various factors, such as:
- Extraction of the damaged tooth.
- Preparation of the jaw (graft), when necessary.
- Placement of dental implant.
- Bone growth and healing.
- Placement of the abutment.
- Placement of the artificial tooth.
- The quality of the materials used.
We are all aware that Costa Rica is one of the best destinations for medical tourism in the world, due to the high quality of the medical and dental services it provides. But let’s see, just as an example, the minimum cost of some of the stages that a dental implant process demands, established by the College of Physicians and Dental Surgeons:
|Dental Implant Placement Surgery||₡504.000|
|Second Phase Implant Surgery||₡27.000|
|Computerized Surgical Guide for implant placement||₡211.000|
