Costa Rica Dental Implant Treatment

If you experience consistent and severe dental pain, a doctor may advise you to undergo a root canal procedure in order to restore a damaged tooth that is the source of your pain. This treatment involves your doctor removing inflamed or infected pulp from within the affected tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal, and placing a filling in the tooth to safely seal the space and prevent future decay and infection. Signs that you may be in need of a root canal treatment include tooth discoloration, localized tooth pain, and swelling around a tooth. This treatment can be safely completed at Dental Coto in Costa Rica, and the reputable healthcare professionals within the clinic will carefully complete the procedure utilizing modern materials made with the highest standards in the United States or Europe.

What motivates a patient to receive dental implants?

Implants are an appealing dental addition for a variety of reasons, which can serve to both cosmetically improve the appearance of your smile and to restore the structure of your teeth. For many years, the most common option for resolving the issue of a missing tooth was to obtain bridges or dentures, but the rising popularity and availability of implants has allowed many patients to resolve problems with tooth decay, damage and disease in a new manner. Implants are permanent restorative pieces to your tooth that aesthetically appear the way that your teeth do naturally and do not feel different from your own teeth. While dentures are still an option for replacing teeth that have been lost, they often do not fit within your mouth perfectly and can cause further problems with your speech as a result. However, implants are fashioned specifically for you to fit inside your mouth comfortably and as an exact match to your teeth. While receiving a dental bridge requires removing a part of the neighboring teeth that it sits between, implants do not need the support of surrounding teeth and do not impact them. Since these teeth are left intact, the overall quality of their health will not be compromised. Implants are also highly durable and can last for your lifetime with the proper care.

What is the procedure for receiving dental implants in Costa Rica?

Once you have decided that you would like to consider implants for your dental needs, your doctor will develop a treatment plan specifically for you and your teeth. At the time of receiving the implants, the first step is for the highly-skilled team of professionals to take impressions of the teeth and a model of your bite, and an individualized tooth unique to you will be created and placed during your second appointment. Next, the team will utilize a local anesthetic or numbing agent and anchor the tooth root implant into the bone socket of the area missing a tooth. The process for the jawbone to heal from here involves the bone growing around the root implant, which is comprised of a titanium post, and becoming anchored tightly into the jaw. This process continues after your first appointment and can take around six weeks to completely heal. After this bonding has fully taken place, an abutment, which is a smaller post, will be attached to the titanium post to take hold of the new tooth that was carefully formed from your initial impressions. Typically, a crown is then secured to the abutment, but some patients opt for attachments that allow for a removable denture instead of one or more crowns. Now that the tooth has been anchored into your jawbone, your implant will look and operate as a natural tooth, and you’ll be on your way to a beautiful, healthy smile.
