Advanced Dentistry Costa Rica
A well known dental practice in Costa Rica that is starting to get international recognition. When we started this project we were looking to build a dental clinic based on excellence and high quality treatments. When a patient starts searching for full mouth reconstruction, dental implants, or cosmetic dental treatments, we want him or her to find a comprehensive dental care clinic that can answer two important questions. How? and Where? Today's dentistry can give a patient many options, including different materials, different brands, as well as treatment options. Patients have the right to find a place that gives them the best dental implants brands and the best restorative materials in cosmetic dentistry. But most important is that our specialists are capable of performing the most current treatments. In Advanced Dentistry Costa Rica every doctor is trained in different areas of dentistry specialties. Our professionals were trained in Foreign Universities, including Latin America and North America.Dr. Eloy Mora Agüero D.D.S

Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy refers to the treatment of the inner aspects of a tooth, specifically the area inside a tooth originally occupied by the tooth's "pulp tissue". Most people would probably refer to a tooth's pulp tissue as its "nerve". While a tooth's pulp tissue does contain nerve fibers it is also composed of arteries, veins, lymph vessels, and connective tissue. We will use the terms "nerve" and "nerve tissue" to refer to a tooth's pulp tissue.
Tooth Inlays & Onlays
To repair larger areas of tooth damage or decay, inlays and onlays are sometimes preferred over dental fillings because they will increase the strength of the tooth. Inlays fit inside of the tooth, while onlays cover more of the tooth's outer surface. Inlays and onlays can be made of gold, porcelain or resin. They are custom made in our laboratory, as a crown, but involve less removal of tooth structure. Inlays and onlays are becoming a very popular procedure to restore teeth to their natural state.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain which are bonded onto the front side of teeth to make a cosmetic improvement in their appearance. Porcelain veneers are routinely used to correct teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Two advantages that porcelain veneers have over bonding are:
- Porcelain veneers create a very life-like tooth appearance
- Porcelain veneers resist staining
Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
Porcelain crowns completely cover and protect teeth that have had extensive damage. They restore and improve the appearance of your teeth by hiding misalignment, cracks, discoloration, or other imperfections. Porcelain crowns look completely natural and offer extra support to teeth that are weak or damaged. They can also vastly improve the overall appearance of your smile and make your teeth much more durable.
Oral & Maxilofacial Surgery
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the surgical specialists of the dental profession. Their surgical expertise and thorough understanding of both the aesthetics and function uniquely qualify them to diagnose, treat and manage the conditions, defects, injuries, and the aesthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaw and face. We specialize in all aspects of Oral, Maxillo-facial, and Facial Cosmetic Surgery including the extraction of teeth, TMJ disorders, correction of cleft lip and palate deformities, correction of jaw and facial deformities, dental implant surgery, facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, treatment of facial trauma and oral surgery.
Metal Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
If you are missing one or more teeth and there is at least one serviceable tooth on either side of the space where the teeth are missing, then you may opt for a fixed bridge to replace those missing teeth; the abutment teeth are prepared by "shaving" them down so that they are smaller, and their sides are slightly tapered and reasonably parallel to each other. This makes it possible to create a casting which will fit over the prepared abutment teeth. Usually the casting is a metal substructure which will eventually be covered with tooth-colored porcelain.
Laser Teeth Whitening
Laser teeth whitening is the latest in tooth whitening technology and is by far the most popular method of whitening teeth, providing instant, dramatic results. This is an in-office procedure and usually takes less than an hour to complete. A special protective coating is applied to the patient's gum tissue and a retraction device is fitted and worn by the patient during the entire procedure..
Full Gum Treatment
Periodontal disease affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth. You may have it and not even know it. There are no early warning signs, except for occasional bleeding and redness around the gums when brushing, and mouth odor. However, as the disease progresses, the symptoms become more obvious. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to loosing of teeth, receding gums, and gum discomfort.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth typically made out of an acrylic resin which at times incorporate porcelain or metal for additional structural support. There are two main types of dentures - partial and complete. Both are finely crafted and custom-fitted. If properly maintained, your dentures will appear natural and provide a perfect smile. Additionally, dentures help strengthen the muscles which control your expressions, correct pronunciation problems caused by missing teeth, and aid with chewing.
Dental implants are substitute teeth roots, resembling screws. These screws are usually made of titanium or its alloy. The implants are bonded to the living bone structure of the jaw. Prosthetic crowns fastened with machined screws are placed on top of the implant to replicate the missing teeth. Prosthetic options include single crowns (caps), bridgework or an implant retained over denture. The new tooth looks, feels, and performs just like your natural teeth.
A composite resin is a tooth-colored plastic mixture filled with glass (silicon dioxide). Composites are not only used for restoring decay, but are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
Bruxism can result in occlusal trauma, the abnormal wear patterns of the occlusal surface, abfractions and fractures in the teeth. Over time, dental damage increases. Bruxism is the leading cause of occlusal trauma and a significant cause of tooth loss and gum recession. Bruxism can be loud enough to wake a sleeping partner. Some individuals clench without significant lateral movements.
