The most common treatments are the ones that are more costly and where people look to save the most money. That is why many patients consider Costa Rica for dental implants abroad as well as for other dental procedures.
Patients typically travel to Costa Rica for implants, veneers, crowns and bridges, and other cosmetic dentistry treatments that are up to 70% less expensive than having them on their country of origin.
It is safe to say that patients don’t fly to Costa Rica for a filling, cleanings or bleaching treatments, but other treatments such as dental implants, veneers, crowns and bridges, cosmetic dentistry are worth having the trip. Especially because these procedures are highly costly in the U.S. and most insurance do not cover the expenses.
Implants are one of the most expensive alternatives to get replacement teeth, however, theyare easily the best long-lasting option.
Even if you just need one implant you could save money by traveling to Costa Rica, but if you need several or ever a full mouth restoration, the savings become even more significant.
For reference, in Florida, you can spend up to $55,000 for dental implants. On the other hand, you can have the same high-quality dental implants in Costa Rica for around $22,000 including flights and costs at your stay.
Remember that it takes two or three visits over several months to have implants fitted. Even then, with all the flights and costs at each stay, you can save tens of thousands of dollars having your dentalimplants abroad.
If you are getting dental implants in Costa Rica, ensure you approach a certified and qualified clinic such as Dr. Arnoldo Anglada Dental Care.
All-on-4 are a quicker alternative to traditional implants because an all-on-4 procedurereplaces all your upper or lower teeth. Which means it replaces a full arch ofteeth using just four or six implants supporting a set of dentures.
Temporary dentures can be placed on the first visit, and then you can return on the the second visit for your permanent teeth after a few months.
If your teeth are healthy but you are not satisfied and/or comfortable with the way your teeth look, veneers might be the best choice. These thin covers are placedinto existing teeth to improve their aesthetic appearance.
We highly recommend porcelain veneers because this material is high durance and it lasts longer than composite.
There are many other dental treatments you can find in Costa Rica like dental crowns, which are a popular treatment for dental tourists that can save them hundreds of dollars per crown. A crown is recommended after root canal treatment to preserve the tooth as long as possible
Other types of cosmetic dentistry offered in Costa Rica include laser-bleaching treatments and smile makeovers.
