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.
Before the placement of the dental implant, the first stage is to do the 3D diagnosis and planning. Placement takes about one hour and we will offer sedation to keep you comfortable and relaxed. Once complete, our doctor will see you a few days later for check-up and discharge.

In the meantime, you should plan a trip to Lima for a minimum period of 4 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 this process.
Dental Implants: Stage 2
Healing normally takes 3 months for the bone to grow around the threads of the dental implants and integrate, becoming strong and ready for the final phase. This includes a crown and an abutment. The abutment is used to connect the implant to the crown and hold everything in place.
This final phase of the dental implants procedure should be planned with a minimum stay of just one or two days. The abutment and crown can be custom designed and made by Cerec 3D CAD CAM system, meaning it takes just one appointment in most cases. This option uses 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 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 as 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, our doctor has a warranty and will replace it.
