Karen´s Real Case

Karen came to the Clinic with no upper teeth. She was wearing a full upper removable denture supported by 2 implants; however, the acrylic covering her palate was affecting her speech and proper digestion of foods.
Once the patient was clinically evaluated by our doctors, it was determined that her teeth could be restored with dental implants and fixed bridges.

Beverly´s Real Case

Beverly came with no teeth due to some periodontal disease caused by years of smoking habits. After carefully evaluating his case through a 3D dental tomography (Scanora 3D by Soredex), the doctor suggested her immediate attention of his dental needs in order to avoid further bone loss, which would be time consuming.
Bev was previously estimated by a dental clinic in the US for about US$60,000 and monthly follow up visits for the next 12 months.

Our doctors recommended the placement of 6 to 8 “one piece-immediate load dental implants” on each dental arch (upper and lower jaw) manufactured by OCO Biomedical which required a flap-less and minimal invasive surgery.
Once the implants were placed, some impressions and molds were taken in order to build the final bridges in our On Site Laboratory. About 2 days later, the patient came back for a try-in and 3 days after that, the final bridges were cemented to the implants, so the patient replaced his missing natural teeth in only one trip of 11 calendar days to Costa Rica.

Tom´s Real Case

Tom had about 10 years wearing a full upper and lower removable denture. For this reason, he presented some bone loss and gum reabsorption which did not allow his denture to fit properly.
Tom had a throughout oral evaluation with the doctor including 3D dental tomography and panoramic x-rays, where was determined that he was a good candidate for implants and fixed upper and lower bridges.

Our doctors placed 8 top and 8 bottom “one piece immediate load dental implants” in Tom´s mouth. The implants were the supports for the fixed bridges which included 12 units on each dental arch. The bridges were made in porcelain-noble metal.
Time Elapsed: 11 calendar days.
Final treatment savings: 70%.


Gerald´s Real Case

Gerald had few years dealing with the involuntary habit called bruxism, which made his teeth look smaller and generally worn down. Also, he had lost some posterior upper right teeth affecting the masticatory process.

Gerald´s teeth were reduced in size and shape in order to make impressions for individual porcelain-noble metal crowns. Also, two dental implants were added in the upper right side in order to replace the missing molars. After 5 days, the final crowns were permanently cemented and the overall aesthetic condition was restored.
Time Elapsed: 11 calendar days.

Sherry´s Real Case

Sherry came to the Clinic with a loose bridge which involved the upper right side of her mouth. She was also missing 4 upper teeth in the left side and had no molars in the lower jaw. For this reason, a 3D dental tomography and a panoramic x-rays were taken in order to evaluate her bone condition for implants restoration.

Our doctors removed the existing damaged bridge and make a full upper structure of 12 units which was supported by the remaining natural teeth.
In the lower jaw the doctor placed 2 dental implants on each side and another bridge was cemented over the existing front teeth and the implants placed. In both bridges, pink acrylic was added in the edge for aesthetic reasons.
Time Elapsed: 11 calendar days.
Final treatment savings: 60%.
