When it comes to dental tourism in Costa Rica, the philosophy of the Flikier Dental Institute of Dental Rehabilitation includes the following aspect: Patients who arrive in Costa Rica from other countries for the purpose of getting dental work done have very high expectations about the level of care, the expertise, the equipment, and the materials used in every procedure.
Since Costa Rica has become synonymous with high-quality dental care in the Americas, the specialists at the Flikier Institute feel duty-bound to uphold this reputation, and one way of doing so is by using Zimmer implants in restoration procedures.
The Zimmer Dental – BIOMET 3I is an international dental consortium based in Spain. This conglomerate has a combined 62 years of experience as a provider of advanced dental solutions such as the Costa Rica all on eight implants.
In many of the restoration procedures performed by the Flikier Institute, Zimmer implants are preferred, particularly those in the tapered screw-vent family. These implants feature a proprietary hex connection stored internally, and they enjoy a very high rate of implant survival rate, up to 98.7 percent across 120 months.
One of the most attractive features of Zimmer implants is that their smart design allows for immediate placement, which means that they are ideal in dental tourism situations. Furthermore, the internal hex connection and the friction-fit abutments are known to shield maxillary bone from the pressure caused by occlusion, what this means for qualified patients is that their implants are more likely to hold even as they are exposed to the forces of strong bites and other forceful actions of the jaws.
Costa Rica all on eight implants are simple restorations iideal for dental tourists who are short on vacation time.
The Zimmer One-Piece implant is usually indicated for patients who need work done on their small incisors, and the time that can be saved in significant since there is no need to fit an abutment. The single-stage protocol to implant this piece lessens the potential trauma to soft tissue, which is something that dental tourists can certainly appreciate as they recover from oral surgery.
Of all implants available for modern dental practices, the Zimmer brand is the one that most resembles the natural roots of the dentition, and the different versions offered through its implant catalog mean that they can be placed in just about any locations around the patient’s mouth.
The Flikier Institute is proud to be one of the few dental practices in Costa Rica that offer Zimmer implants, which we think are among the finest in restorative and regenerative products for dental tourists.
