Have you lost permanent teeth? There are two main reasons for losing your teeth.

The first reason people lose their teeth is due to accidents (trauma).

However, many people aren’t aware that tooth loss due to trauma can happen months or years after the accident because the damage happened to the root of the tooth, where it may go undetected until it’s too late.

The second reason people lose their teeth is due to dental diseases. Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is the most common cause of dental loss.

Dental implants are a good alternative for people who have lost teeth. However, the price of such procedures can be out of reach for many people. To make matters worse, dental implants are rarely covered by medical insurance, since they are considered a dental problem, not a medical one.

Why a Dental Implant is Worth It

Sometimes people who have lost teeth usually don’t worry about it since it’s not a life threatening condition. However, implants provide several long-term benefits that

make them a valuable investment.

a) Permanency. Dental implants last for a lifetime in most cases.

b) Better Speech. Dental loss affects the movements of your tongue and the way air moves through your mouth, which may affect your speechstrong

c) Better chewing. It can be difficult or even impossible to eat certain types of food when one tooth or more is missingstrong

d) Further Tooth Loss Preventiostrong. Because you can’t eat with one side of your mouth, the other side has to do all the chewing. Consequently, one side of your mouth tends to be overworked and stressed. This may result in fractures or disease from the extra workload, which in turn can make you lose even more teeth.

e) Improved Self-Image. Dental loss may affect the way you feel about yourself and lower your self-esteem. Many people who suffer dental loss are too self-conscious and can’t talk, eat or laugh in front of others with ease.

Costa Rica is an Excellent Option

Dental implant prices in the United States vary greatly, depending on where you live and the type of implant you need. At the very least, expect to pay $2,500 to $4,000 per implant. If you live in a zone where prices are in the high range, you may end up paying $8,000 dollars or more. If you have more than one tooth missing, that price is multiplied by each implant.

Costa Rica Dental Team offers the same level or high quality implants as found in the US, but the lower local cost of living allows us to offer prices that are 50% to 70% less. This makes dental implants in Costa Rica an affordable alternative to high priced dental implants in the US and Canada.

The dental pros at Costa Rica Dental Team are highly qualified dentists and oral hygiene specialists.

Our dentists and dental techs have trained in the best dentistry schools in the US, Europe and Latin America and are constantly receiving additional training in order to keep their skills and techniques up to date with the latest developments, yet at lower cost, because the cost of living here is lower.

In addition, Costa Rica is a safe and beautiful place for a tropical vacation – an ideal place to recover from your dental work. You can relax at the beautiful beaches of Nicoya and Playa Dominical. If you arrive a few days before your dental work, you can visit the national parks, practice surfing or just enjoy a game of golf. In the capital, there are casinos, museums and shopping centers for you to visit.
