Dental implants have become the most important dentistry procedure of the 21st century. Dental implants are the number one reason Costa Rica odontology has become highly sought after by dental tourists from the United States, Canada and Europe.
Essentially, dental implants are replacements for teeth that have either been lost or that have become so decayed that they need to be removed. When dentists mention the possibility of removing a tooth, they are almost always implying that implants should follow.
The Flikier Institute of Dental Rehabilitation is often mentioned in the best dentist reviews of Costa Rica, and this is due to the experience and extensive training of its implantology specialists.
When teeth become weakened through decay, trauma or due to abnormal wear and tear, dental crowns can help to restore the dentition in a manner that goes beyond cosmetics. Costa Rica crowns are legendary among dental tourists who have learned about the quality of care and the affordable cost of this restoration.
Costa Rica porcelain crowns are often requested by dental tourists who contact the Flikier Institute of Dental Rehabilitation. It is important to note that the choice of dental procedure and the material to be used are determinations that can only be made after a thorough evaluation.
After dental implants, full mouth restorations and reconstructions are the most requested procedures by dental tourists. The Costa Rica dental prices for full mouth restorations are very affordable when compared to the United States, and they are ideal for dental tourists who wish to spend a few more days getting to know the country.
A full mouth restoration involves the reconstruction of the dentition of the upper and low jaws. There are several conditions that call for full mouth reconstructions, and most of them are not solely related to cosmetic appearance; these procedures are often performed to improve overall health.
In Costa Rica, All on 4 procedures are highly sought after by dental tourists who prefer the idea of implants to dentures. The All-On-Four technique (sometimes called “Teeth in a Day”) was originally developed by a specialist in Portugal, and it was quickly adopted by dental tourism clinics around the world.
Essentially, the All-on-Four technique eliminates the need for bone grafting in patients that have already lost significant bone structure. The premise of this procedure is to place the implanted roots in the anterior aspect of the jaw, deep in the mouth, to provide a firm base of solid support for the new teeth.
The All-On-Four specialists at the Flikier Institute of Dental Rehabilitation have successfully performed these procedure on many dental tourists in Costa Rica; however, it is important to note that this technique may not be recommended for all cases.

In Costa Rica, the All on 8 restorative procedure is gaining favor among dental tourists. All-On-Eight dental implants were developed after the success of All-On-Four; in essence, the All on 8 technique (which is sometimes called All-On-6 in Costa Rica) features porcelain teeth set on a dental bridge that is fully arched and permanently anchored.
There are several advantages for dental tourists who choose All-On-Eight procedures in Costa Rica. First of all, the Flikier Institute of Dental Rehabilitation can perform this procedure in just one or two days. Second, the staff is so proficient in this technique that the implants look and feel very natural. Third, the rate of success is very high for this implantation technique.
In the 21st century, the Costa Rica cosmetic dentistry field has become a veritable industry of its own thanks to the deep interest from dental tourists. Just about any treatment that improves the appearance of visible teeth can be classified as a cosmetic dentistry t procedure; however, it is important to remember that not all clinics have dentists who have been formally certified as specialists in this field.
As as comprehensive oral health clinic in Costa Rica, the Flikier Dental Institute of Dental Rehabilitation keeps active members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry on staff. When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, the Flikier Institute adheres to its ethical foundation by first addressing underlying oral health before setting out to perform aesthetic procedures.
In Costa Rica, dental tourism has grown tremendously over the last two decades, and this growth can be explained by the esteemed tradition of dentistry in this Central American nation.
Dentistry has always been considered as a noble and prestigious profession in Costa Rica. Although full dental treatments are not normally available from the public health service, the basics of oral hygiene and preventive health education start from a very early age. The national universities are affiliated with various dentistry schools in the United States, and thus many dental health professionals in Costa Rica complete their education in that country, hence the high level of bilingual dentists.
Dental tourism in Costa Rica got started when surfers and backpackers who enjoyed prolonged vacations would visit local dentists and were surprised by the quality of care performed by English-speaking dentists and the affordability of the procedures.
