Dental Work in Costa Rica: High-Quality Services at Affordable Prices

Good oral and dental hygiene can prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. It can also help you retain your original teeth as you get older. Unfortunately, many people avoid the dentist due to an inability to pay.

According to research published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 40% of adults age 18-64 failed to see a dentist in 2013. To obtain high-quality and affordable services, many people are opting to travel out of the country to obtain their dental work in Costa Rica.

The Central American country has quickly become a popular destination for trusted dental care in a comfortable environment and the savings compared to the U.S. and Canada can be substantial.

In fact, visiting a quality Costa Rican dentist routinely saves travelers 50% - 70% on dental procedures including implants, root canals, veneers, crowns and bridges, among many others.

Best of all, these patients usually receive higher quality dental work in Costa Rica that they would experience back home.

For example, receiving dental implants in Costa Rica is especially popular for those seeking a safe, quality and affordable solution to tooth loss. Unfortunately, many U.S. dental insurance plans won't cover the procedure.

As you may know, dental implants act as replacement tooth roots, providing a strong, stable foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth, made to look and function like your natural teeth. They can improve the appearance of your smile, slow bone loss and help many patients regain proper eating habits.

A crown (tooth) is attached to the implant usually 3-6 months later after the bone has integrated with the implant.

The cost for full restoration (implant, abutment and crown) in Costa Rica averages $1,500 while in the U.S., the same restoration using the very same trusted dental brands utilized in North America, will typically cost $3,500 or more.

With a qualified Costa Rican provider, you can finally achieve oral health and transform your smile without breaking the bank.

Proven and high quality certified specialists in implants, prosthodontics, endodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgeons are on hand to cater to the various dental needs of each individual patient.

Furthermore, dental care in Costa Rica can be experienced in many internationally accredited clinics, relieving any anxiety patients may have about standards outside their own country.

Traveling to Costa Rica is easy and just 1 to 5 hours by airplane from most major cities in the U.S., making it an excellent choice for people in need of dental procedures ranging from cosmetic to full mouth restoration.

There's no denying that a healthy smile can improve your appearance, boost your confidence, and enhance your professional and personal life. Your smile is often the first thing someone notices when they look at you, and if you're feeling self-conscious about the look of your teeth, it shows.

According the Health Policy Institute of the ADA, dental care utilization in 2012 was at its lowest level among working age adults since the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey tracked dental care use in 1996. Adults who did not plan on visiting the dentist in the upcoming year, cited cost as one of the primary reasons for not seeking care.

Fortunately, quality, inexpensive dental care is in reach and thousands are taking advantage of first class dentistry provided by a professionally trained and certified Costa Rica dentist.

While the lower prices associated with dental work in Costa Rica is what draws many tourists in, it's the quality services, high-grade materials, and friendly and comfortable atmosphere that keeps them coming back again and again.
