San Jose is the capital city of Costa Rica, as well as the largest urban center in the country, with the metropolitan area comprising over a third of Costa Rica's population.

All-on-4

+ More
  • The All-on-4 dental implant treatment was designed by Nobel Biocare, and is used to replace an entire upper or lower set of teeth. The procedure creates a permanent prosthesis by using four dental implants that act as an anchor for a bridge or overdenture of 12-to-14 teeth.

    The dentist performs or examines diagnostic tests (such as panoramic X-rays and a CT scan) to assess the patient's jaw bone density. These scans are then often followed up by computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (known as CAD/CAM) processes that plan the All-on-4 procedure and allow the dentist to precisely insert the dental implants into the jaw.

    I'm not sure how to rate them. Their offices were clean enough end Dr Mora was great. However I have lost some earrings which were left there by accident during the X-ray where I was asked to take them off. I followed up the same evening but alas someone has stolen them. Also, I'm suffering from a huge infection (inflammation of the left side of my face) from the dental implant (which Dr Fernandez put in) site which 10 days of antibiotics have not cured. I have an appt with my regular dentist today to see what they say.
