Dental Implants in Costa Rica - Procedure

A dental implant is an artificial metal tooth root placed in the jawbone. It can be supported with a dental bridge, thus providing a high survival rate.[1]

The steps of the dental implant process consist of:

  • The dentist examines your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine if the implant is right for you.
  • Your oral surgeon places an implant by making small incisions in your gums.
