Planning your dental care in Costa Rica

November 22, 2019

This article is about two things that we seldom combine or anticipate with pleasure: planning and dental care.

Costa Rica is a popular dental tourism destination. Some of the best dental clinics in the world are located here and can make that smile brighter and more beautiful — with a little planning, of course.  Are you thinking about a trip to Costa Rica for some much-needed dental care? Many dental procedures require planning. Here’s why:

Step-by-step procedures

Dental treatment often requires multiple steps taken in a logical order. Some procedures, such as dental x-rays, are required before other steps are taken. Other procedures — for example, dental implants — typically require two steps or more with some time in between some steps. In the first step, the implants are inserted into the jawbone, followed by a period of osteointegration where the bone grows into the implant giving it strength and stability before abutments and ultimately crowns or other devices are affixed.

Logistics count

Logistics are always part of the plan. When will you have time away from work? When will the kids be visiting their cousins in another city? What will the weather be like at that time of the year? How much time will your procedure require? Will you be able to include a few days of rest and relaxation? How do you book your tickets? Where will you stay? How will you get around once you arrive in Costa Rica? There are many important elements that need to be planned for a successful dental travel experience.

Sailing over the money hurdles

Budgeting considerations are part of the plan. Higher-ticket procedures, including those that may require numerous steps over a relatively long period of time — for example, a full mouth restoration or All on 4 dental implants — should be planned within your budgetary means.

Whether you are using savings or paying using credit or current earnings, GETAWAY DENTAL has demonstrated that they will work with you to make sure everything works.
