Today I have a full mouth of beautiful teethDavid, US, 28 01 20

After doing extensive research I decided to have my dental work done at Dr. Cavallini’s office in San Jose Costa Rica. My teeth were in terrible shape! I had many cavities, broken, chipped, three missing teeth and impounded wisdom teeth. My thoughts had been I would need all teeth pulled and either implants or false. After flying to their office from Cincinnati, Oh I received a full assessment of my problems and my case was assigned to Dr Mora. Dr Mora assured me he could give me a full-mouth restoration. I was there my first trip for a week. My wisdom teeth were pulled plus two others. Three implants were put in and all my remaining teeth were ground to receive crowns at a later date. Temporary uppers and lowers were put in place until I would return in around 4 months. On my return for the completion of the restoration, I would have 26 zirconium crowns fitted and placed. Only 2 original teeth were kept in place as they were. Please understand this! When my original teeth were ground to receive crowns at a later date I was left with nerve sensation. Today I have a full mouth of beautiful teeth. I can sense pressure when chewing, my tongue touching my teeth, a finger touching them and when I use my water pic I feel the water hitting them. Dr Mora and his assistant Laura were simply amazing. The whole experience was beyond words. In my words, I must say my teeth are an absolute miracle. I want to express my greatest of gratitude for for my results! Please don’t be afraid to change your life. All my work was done with local anaesthesia and my pain was very limited. My restoration has now been completed for 1 year. They function as if they were my original teeth. Before I end this I need to complement the whole staff and office. They are kind, caring and very professional. Trust me if you are going to Costa Rica for dental your choice should start and end with Dr Cavallini’s office! PS My dental was done for a fraction of US prices!
