COSTA RICA - BRAND OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Most dental clinics in Costa Rica use Zimmer dental implants or Biomet 3i dental implants.
Dental Clinics In Costa Rica Use Many Different Types of Dental Implants
In 2014, Zimmer bought out Biomet 3i and is in the process of integrating the two companies.
Zimmer and 3i are Used By Many Dental Clinics in Costa Rica
A few dental clinics in Costa Rica offer OCO Biomedical dental implants and/or Tatum dental implants.
Tatum Implants are Quality US Dental Implants Used in Costa Rica
Zimmer and 3i dental implants have been around in Costa Rica longer than OCO dental implants or Tatum dental implants. However, used correctly there is nothing inferior about OCO or Tatum. OCO and Tatum are newer types of implant systems and are not as well known at some dental clinics in Costa Rica.
Zirconium Implants used in Costa Rica Z-Look from Z - Systems
Recently, a few dental clinics in Costa Rica started offering zirconium dental implants from Z- Systems / Z – look.
The claimed “cadillac” of dental implants – Noble Biocare – is not offered in Costa Rica.
Dental Clinics in Costa Rica Do Not Carry Nobel Biocare
This has something to do with distribution rights within Costa Rica. However, there is nothing inherently superior about Noble Biocare implants. Noble Biocare spends a lot on marketing and provides excellent customer support to the dentists who use their product but dental implants from Noble Biocare are also the most expensive. While well respected, Noble Biocare is not a better dental implant than Zimmer, Biomet 3i, OCO, Tatum, or Z-Systems.
There is a wide variety of dental implants in Costa Rica that can be used to replace a missing tooth with confidence. There is not one best dental implant.
