Dental Implants Costa Rica New Look
A Dental Implant is a titanium screw placed into the jawbone to anchor a false tooth or teeth. It functions just the same as the root of a tooth to hold it in place. They are a safe and well-established dental tool to replace teeth lost by mouth shrinkage, other gum and bone issues or trauma.
Dental Implant Treatment
A consultant will make a detailed examination of the gums and bone to ensure they can support the dental implant which will be bespoke fitted for each patient’s needs.
The screws are drilled into the jaw bone to precision measurement so they can support a crown, bridge or denture that fits perfectly. The procedure is normally carried out under local anesthesia.
The bone fuses with the implants over the next few months during the healing period with the area covered by a protective dental cap. Once that action has settled, the dentures can be fitted into place.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants, like natural teeth, stimulate the jaw and stop bone loss and also have a profound impact by restoring appearance, speech, oral health and self-esteem.
The placement of dental implants is an important element of the process with consultants designing them to precise measurements to ensure maximum function while employing an aesthetical imperative on how the mouth and smile will appear following treatment.
The operation can take around 30 minutes for a single implant but extend to several hours – and possibly over a number of visits – if it involves complex bone work and multiple implants.
Advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment are a feature of dental procedures at Costa Rica New Look and our consultants are highly experienced and skilled and at all dental implants procedures.

Implants are typically made of titanium. Similarly, this material is used in the making of artificial heart valves and joints. Important advantages of titanium:
- Compatibility with the human body.
- Bone tissue can “grow” into the body of the implant (the process is known as “Osseo integration”).
- It does not cause allergic reactions.
- Creates a sense of “own” teeth.
