I couldn't be happierIvan, US, 17 09 19

I'm a retired Law Enforcement Commander and I can tell you that if you are thinking of utilizing Dr Gadea's services, you have made an excellent choice. I researched and researched before selecting Dr Gadea. Frankly, it took me just over a year before I decided to take the risk For me, it was a huge risk. No dental insurance at all and certainly not the money to have the work done that I knew I needed. I corresponded with Dr Gadea and his office coordinator Gaby numerous times before making my decision. I sent emails to former patients and even spoke with some on the phone about the services they received. Each time, Dr Gadea came out on top. So, what did I have done? How about 6 root canals redone, two new surgical root canals, a five tooth bridge, three crowns and my bottom teeth received several bondings and cosmetic improvements. I must add that Dr Hernandez (Endodontist) at the clinic did all of my root canals including the surgical root canals. Dr Gadea and Hernandez are perfectionists, the best Dentists I have ever had and frankly, much better than any I have had in the USA. Dr Gadea also offers a warranty on his work and his word is his bond. I couldn't be happier.

Gum Surgery  
Sometimes gums are stain or are not well proportionate and it’s becomes difficult to show them in public. Having big gums, small or even too large teeth are aesthetic problems that some people face all the time and even having them healthy doesn’t mean they can show them how they would like to. The esthetic gums surgery allows you to correct pigmentation problems, get the right level to your gums and get even the space between teeth, providing your mouth a healthiest look and a better function.

Dental Implants  
Dental implants are artificial roots that can be place in the maxilla or in the mandible creating a solid base where it can be perform either individual or a whole mouth restoration. The implants will allow you to chew, smile and talk secure and comfortable. This is the most natural, new and healthy way to replace lost teeth.The dental implants are made of titanium because it doesn’t reject tissues and fits perfectly with the bone. At Costa Rica Dental Services we use only the best implants on the market such as ZIMMER, 3i or MIS.
