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 but you will need to make 2 trips to Lima because this is a two-stage procedure.
Ideally, you should plan a trip to Lima for a minimum period of three 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 placement of the dental implant, the first stage is the 3D diagnosis and planning. This 3D planning allows the surgeon to select the best areas of bone, decide if additional bone would be beneficial with bone grafting, as well as selecting the size, angle (positioning), and type of dental implant to be used.
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 previously planned by three-dimensional software during the consultation.
Once the implants are placed, you can leave to rest and relax. However, always following our post-care instructions and taking the prescribed medication. The 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 grow around the threads of the dental implants and integrate. This is when it becomes strong and stable. Later, the second stage includes a crown and an abutment. The abutment is used to connect the implant to the crown and hold everything 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 the Cerec 3D CAD-CAM system, meaning it takes just one appointment. We use reinforced E.Max or Zirconium ceramic to make sure 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 a 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. In the unlikely event that one of your dental implants fail, you have our warranty and we will replace it.
