Dental implants treatment in Costa Rica? Looking for information about it? You´ve come to the right place. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. This procedure is considered a form of prosthetic dentistry but also cosmetic dentistry.
Crowns, bridges or dentures are not your only options when replacing missing teeth. Dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture. They provide a longer-term solution, slow down bone loss preserving healthy tooth tissue.
Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Larger spaces created by two, three or more missing teeth do not necessarily need one implant per tooth, however the exact number of implants will depend upon the quality and volume of bone at each potential implant site.

Reduced loss: A dental implant placed in an area where your tooth root used to be, can actually stimulate bone growth and production, preventing loss of valuable bone structure. A boss loss can also make a person look older.
Improved function: The function of a regular dental implant is just as well as your own natural teeth. You can eat whatever you want and also speak fluently. Your bone jaw will work normally.
Dental hygiene: Just like a natural teeth, dental implants need regular brushing and dental hygiene appointments.
Better aesthetics: a dental implant provide a much better cosmetic. It should be indistinguishable from your surrounding natural teeth.
No need to remove any healthy tooth structure: That’s true. Your natural teeth do not need to be prepared or altered in any way for an implant procedure.
Don´t worry if you don’t have enough bone for dental implants. A Sinus augmentation (new bone in the sinus is created) procedure or a Onlay grafting (bone replacement) can be applied to solve that problem.
