      At any rate, this question came up early in December...check messages around 38893, 38682, 38245, etc.
      There are several recommendations.
      Happy New Year all,

        I have read comments by different people and appreciate their view points and experiences. It is important that each patient be offered all treatment plans available. There are various solutions that can restore a patient to proper function and dental health. Please remember everyone may have different conditions and needs. There are benefits and problems with every treatment.

          Thank you for your comments. The Colegio is not a 'commercial' source. It has a professional and ethical responsibility to the public to provide a list of all recognized specialists in good standing, including their qualifications that may or not be reflected in advertisements or web pages.

          For example, if someone states that Dentist A is one of five implantologists in CR, that statement may be misleading. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and Periodontists receive training in their postgraduate programs that includes implant placement and related procedures. They are more than qualified to place implants, do bone grafts and perform sinus lifts. Opinion of patients is very important, but so is 'factual knowledge' of procedures, type and quality of implants, the benefits and risks of immediate loading, and other important factors, especially if you are considering this type of treatment plan.

          Dr. Peter S. Aborn

            I have a friend who has property here and lives in the U.S. at the moment. When she comes to C.R. she does not have a whole lot of time. Does anyone know of a dentist/periodontist who does implants and who does it all in one day? A lot of dentists prefer the 2-step method but I have heard that there are dentists who do the whole thing all at once.

              Hello,

              I had an implant done by Dr Munoz Cavallini back in 2009, the process was completed in 6 days.
              I was impressed by the care provided this father & son team.
              He returned my calls in Canada promptly on several occasions after the procedure when I had questions about other procedures.
              I have included the link to their website below.
              I hope this helps.

                      You get a few implant posts and then you get dentures that snap onto them and they don't move.� My cousin has that and he loves them.

                        I sent this place a email with some questions and I live in Canada. Well they called me and answered all my questions and gave me some advice about what I should do to make it easier to get a good estimate.
                        The dentist that called spoke perfect english with no accent at all and told me if I had any questions to call any back and gave me a 1-800 number!


                        Now all I need is about $15,000 for the implants and the trip!! But at least I would have teeth I could wear for the first time in 15 years!!!


                        AND I could eat!

                        That sounds like an awful lot of money for implants - how many are you having done. I realize that the price includes air fare and possibly a hotel. Paula
