Cost-Effective Dental Implants in Lima Lloyd|dental implants, dentistry in lima, English Speaking Dentist, lima dentist, teeth implants
Dental implants in Lima, Peru are a cost-effective way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant in North America can top US$2000 or more, each! …and that’s before you get the abutment and crown on stage two.
Dental implants cost less in Lima because utilities and services are less costly, but that does not mean you are getting an inferior product. Quite the opposite, actually. High-quality dental implants that would cost a fortune in the USA are reasonably priced and very accessible in Lima.
Dental Implants: Stage 1
The placement of dental implants is much simpler than most people think. However, this is a two-stage procedure.
Ideally, you should plan a trip to Lima for a minimum period of three or four days for this initial stage of treatment. Consultation, treatment planning, and dental implant placement all happen on the same appointment. If you choose sedation, this helps you to feel more relaxed and some people even sleep through the process.
However, before the placing the dental implant, the first step is our consultation which includes 3D diagnosis and planning. Our advanced 3D planning allows the surgeon to select the best areas of bone and decide if additional bone would be beneficial with bone grafting. At the same time, he will select the size, angle (positioning), and type of dental implant to be used.
In-clinic 3D imaging allows for immeidate diagnosis and treatment planning.
Placement takes about 30 minutes per implant with the aid of a 3D printed surgical guide.
A surgical guide is a special tool that allows the surgeon to follow the correct trajectory in the placement protocol. Thus, achieving a perfectly precise implant placement as planned by three-dimensional software during the consultation.
Once the implants are placed, you can leave to rest and relax. However, following our post-care instructions and taking the prescribed medication is imperative. Finally, our specialist implantologist will see you a few days later for a check-up and discharge.

Dental Implants: Stage 2
Healing normally takes 3 months for the bone to integrate grow around the threads of each dental implant. This is when it becomes strong and stable. The second stage includes a crown and an abutment. The abutment is used to connect the implant to the crown and hold everything safely in place.
You’ll need to stay just one or two days for this part of the treatment. The abutment and crown are custom designed and made by CEREC 3D CAD-CAM system. This is great because it takes just one appointment and we have full control over the process. We will use reinforced E.Max ceramic or Zirconium to ensure the restoration is very strong and superbly aesthetic.
We’ll give you full post-care instructions and a prescription for medication to make sure your treatment is a success. We will also be on call and available for any questions or concerns you might have in the following days.
While all surgical procedures involve some risk, dental implants have an extremely high success rate. This is because integration is a very natural process. Studies show that failures happen in only about 2% of cases, normally due to non-integration and in patients with other health conditions such as diabetes. In the unlikely event that one of your dental implants fail, you have our warranty and we will replace it.
