Removable Dentures in Costa Rica
Edentulous patients that are in need of replacing missing teeth areas in their mouth can opt for implant procedures. The patient can either go with replacing missing teeth with implants and restoring them with crowns or, if the patient has no remaining teeth at all, with custom prosthesis made to fit an initial placement of implants.
The amount of implants placed in this initial phase is determined by the condition of the bone, however, usually the Hybrid denture is recommended with six implants.
There will be a waiting period of 6 to 8 months, where the patient will have a temporary denture, before the implants oseointegrate with the bone and an implant supported denture can be performed.
