Within a few seconds of meeting someone, we conclude a number of things about that person and one of the first things we look at is a person’s smile. A smile tells people you are happy, intelligent, and social. However, if you have missing teeth you may feel you can’t or shouldn’t smile. Dental implants from the Costa Rica Dental Team can improve first impressions.
According to the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) and National Center of Health Statistics (NCHS), more than 36 million Americans don’t have any teeth, and approximately 120 million are missing at least one tooth. Missing teeth can lower a person’s health,self-esteem, happiness, and overall quality of life. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/products/databriefs/db197.htm
Whether you were born without a tooth or have had teeth removed due to injury, infection, or decay, dental implants at Costa Rica Dental Team provide a number of advantages to both your oral health and overall health.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a post that is surgically positioned into the jawbone, maxillary or mandibular, beneath the gum line, where it integrates with your natural bone. The post becomes a sturdy base for the replacement teeth. A dental implant is the closest thing to natural teeth. It will feel, look, and function naturally.
Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper or lower set of teeth. When performed by the dental experts at Costa Rica Dental Team, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures.
