Full mouth dental implants is terribly expensive in the United States, forcing many people to seek inferior solutions like removable bridges or acrylic dentures. Many patients cannot afford any care at all, and so they simply do their best to get along with teeth, restricting their social lives and the kinds of food that they can eat. Not being able to enjoy food is no way to live.
That’s why more and more U.S citizens (and even some Canadians!) are traveling to Costa Rica (which is ranked higher in quality and with better prices than Mexico), where they can get affordable Full mouth dental implants, and other dental procedures like crowns, veneers, root canals and dental implants at prices that are often 50-70% percent less than in the United States.
If you have lost a significant number of teeth, you may have researched for a full mouth dental implants procedure.
If you’ve received a quote for this procedure in the United States, from Clear Choice or other dental clinics, your price generally starts at $50,000 or more. The nationwide average cost for full-mouth dental implants is around $37,000.
At New Smile Dental Group in Costa Rica, you can receive this same treatment for 50% – 70% less.

Full mouth dental implants is the most modern solution to restore the functionality and aesthetic look of those patients who have lost (or need to remove) more than 80% of their natural teeth.
If your teeth are loose, fractured under the gum line or deeply decayed and infected, the full mouth dental implants is the solution you have been looking for.
If you have not had your teeth extracted then, the process will start with the removal of your teeth.
Teeth extractions should be considered only when the teeth are loose, fractured below the gums or deeply decayed and infected, other than that, if your teeth are not moving even if they do not look cosmetically acceptable then, we would suggest you crowns and/or fixed bridges. The dental implants replace the part of our teeth that is inserted into the jawbone. For this reason, if your teeth are strong inside the bone, we could keep them and restore their cosmetic look. However, if you have decided to extract your teeth (all or some of them) despite their restorable conditon then, we will proceed accordingly.
This procedure takes place along with any required extraction (if necessary) and usually heals in about 3 to 4 months.
What is sinus lift surgery? A sinus lift, also called a sinus augmentation, is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the space between your molars and premolars, which is also the space between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses on either side of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or “lifted,” which gives the surgery its name.
When is the sinus surgery required? When you do not have enough bone height in this section of your upper jaw, or your sinuses are too close to the jaw. This will be determined through the evaluation of a 3D dental tomography (CT Scan).
As many as 6 to 8 dental implants on upper jaw and 6 to 8 dental implants for lower jaw: The dental implants are titanium screws that are inserted/screwed into the jawbone to replace the missing roots of our natural teeth. These number of implants recommended is the maximum suggested to place on each dental arch and will be the anchors where permanent teeth will be cemented.
We understand how important it is for you to leave after any procedure wearing teeth not only for cosmetic but also for functionality. For this reason, during each stage we will give you a set of temporary teeth for the upper and lower jaw. This temporary prosthesis is built in acrylic and our Lab artists make magic to give you beautiful teeth to wear during the healing process that you will not believe they are only temporaries. Most of the times, our doctors place them “non removable”, but it depends on each case.
Upper & Lower fixed bridge of 12 to 14 units: The fixed and permanent bridges, are commonly used to cover a space if you are missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants in this case surrounding the space where the tooth/teeth once were located.
We should have 12 to 14 teeth per each dental arch; for this reason, the bridge of 12 to 14 teeth will replace every single natural tooth and it will be cemented over the implants screws, which will work as anchors or supports for the bridge.
