The dental tourism industry in Costa Rica is a long established one. It has helped hundreds of thousands of individuals from developed countries say goodbye to their dental issues.
Hence, even if it’s a single dental implant that you need, Costa Rica is the ideal destination. Before we come to that, let’s see how same day implants score over traditional dental implants.
The same day implant system traces its history back to Dr. Per-Ingvar Brånemark’s pioneering work on dental implants.
The process of placing same day dental implants is as follows:
Traditional implants are time-consuming and inconvenient. Furthermore:
A dental implant is a false tooth root. Its shape is the same as that of a screw. When the dentist places this implant into your jaw, it cements with your bone.
A dental crown is then placed on top of the implant. When the dentist carries out this entire process within a day, it is the same day dental implant procedure.
You will need to have good oral health. This means that you will need to have an adequate amount of bone tissue that will have to take on the implants.
The doctor will utilize state-of-the-art dental technology to find out whether you have a strong bone structure. You may not be able to get immediate load implants very soon in case of the following:
