Overview

Overview

Costa Rica Bluezone Guanacaste is the leading implantology specialist dental clinic in the region, and its dental surgeries are performed in a JCI-accredited hospital. Its primary offering for international patients is immediate loading All-on-4 and All-on-6 procedures, meaning patients can have the treatment performed in a single trip.

The Costa Rica Bluezone team has decades of experience and consists of dentists who have memberships in leading industry organizations, and who make use of the newest technologies available to dentistry. Aside from the clinic's reputation for excellence in mouth restoration and in implantology, the team also offers dental treatments that include teeth whitening, dental implants, oral surgery, gum disease treatment, and root canals.

Location

This clinic is a 15-minute drive from the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport and is located in a "Blue Zone" - a geographic region where measurably longer lifespans have been observed.

Costa Rica is famous for its biodiversity. It has more than 500,000 unique animal and plant species, about 5% of the world's biodiversity. Almost half of the country is covered in forest, and more than a quarter is a protected wildlife area. The Guanacaste National park is home to a population of collared peccaries and birds and contains dry, wet, and cloud forests. Guided nature walks, bird watching, and recreational diving are among the activities available visitors to the region.

Accommodations are available year-round and can be found either in-land or closer to the beaches in the Guanacaste province. Many locals speak both English and Spanish.

from $ 8,500

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.

    Massimo is a huge asset to your company. He made my experience a very good one with no issues. Dr. Seinz was a great Dr. And I would recommend your company to everyone. The only thing I'm having a hard time with is wondering if I'm healing normally? Thank you, Derick Erickson.

Costa Rica Bluezone Guanacaste is located close to the Hospital CIMA – about 30 minutes driving from the International Airport and very close to several beach resorts. The staff were really friendly and welcoming!
