The soaring cost of dental care in the US and Canada compels many people to look for an alternative outside their home country. However, Americans and Canadians are also concerned with the quality of dental care abroad. Costa Rica fits the bill because it has a number of clinics offering world-class service at a reasonable price.

What is the All-on-4® treatment concept?

Offered exclusively by Nobel Biocare, implants replace the whole arch of teeth with just four implants. The implants are placed at an angle, which provides maximum support. A dental bridge or denture is attached on top. The new teeth look, feel, and function like your own pearly whites. This treatment is an option for people who lost their teeth due to gum disease, injury or other reasons.

This technique offers many benefits: it cuts down your dental expenses, shortens treatment time, and saves you from discomfort. Since the treatment may eliminate the need for additional procedures like bone graft, it reduces the cost of your dental expenses and shortens the treatment time.

What is the cost in Costa Rica?

Surprisingly, the cost of oral care in Costa Rica is lower compared to the US, Canada, and other countries. Prices of dental treatment vary, depending on the type of material you choose, the number of teeth involved, and other factors. To give you an idea, here’s the estimated price  in Costa Rica compared to other countries:
