Costa Rica dental history

Costa Rica dental history is probably comming from the Mayans, who lived in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, the Mexican states of Campeche, Chiapas, Quintana Roo and Tabasco, in addition to some parts of Central America from around 250 CE to 900 CE. Also the Incas and the Aztecs took the Mayan methods for the reconstruction of dental pieces.

The Mayans.

For the Maya, their teeth and smile were of great importance and denoted social status and beauty.

It is believed that his dental practices had a religious and social character, but above all aesthetic and his technology was remarkable by observing the preparation of the dental cavity of the pieces to be treated.

Inlays of jade and turquoise made in Mayan’s teeth, tell that que ortodoncy began many years before Jesus Christ.

The cavity was made with a rudimentary drill, used quartz as an abrasive for its hardness. The incrustation could be of jade, amethyst, hematite, turquoise, quartz, cinnabar and iron pyrite. Finally, the incrustation was fixed with a perfect fit to the cavity by means of a calcium phosphate cement.

First dental steps.

The science of dentistry exist since ancient times, there were experts in dental problems, especially in the extraction of teeth, whose pathologies have affected humanity since its inception.

Until that moment the mouth was not very importan to take care. In fact the normal care was to rub the teeth daily with a rag, but if the pain appeared and the potions did not calm it, the solution was to extract the problematic part.

Dental extraction before the consolidation of dentistry was a form of public entertainment, as were executions. Of this one of the most well-known characters in Paris in the 18th century was Le gran Thomas.

The beginnings of ortodoncy

Dentistry began in 300 BC with Egyptian doctors who embedded precious stones in their teeth and three centuries later in China, acupuncture was used to treat the pain associated with tooth decay. And what about the Ancient Rome where oral care was always very important. But dentists as we know them today appeared in eighteenth-century France.

Between 800 and 2500 BC, the Etruscans and Phoenicians used gold bands and wires for the construction of dental prostheses. In the bands, extracted teeth were placed in the place of missing teeth and with the wires were retained in the mouth.

In 700 BC the Etruscans were the first to use material for implants, such as ivory and sea shells.
The Mayans used inlays of gold, precious stones or minerals for the restoration of dental pieces not only for aesthetics but also for ornamentation.

It was until the nineteenth century with the intervention of the principles of the amalgam was when he began to have scientific basis on the materials mainly emerged information about porcelain and gold.

It was not until the nineteenth century with the intervention of the principles of amalgam that Costa Rica dental began to have a scientific basis on the materials, mainly information about porcelain and gold.

In 1895 the Faculty of Medicine, Surgery and Pharmacy was created, to which the dental surgeons of the time were assigned.

To avoid mistakes, the Faculty of Dental Surgery in Costa Rica created in 1915 changes its name, and will be called from 1941 as College of Dental Surgeons.
The following year, the Costa Rican Social Security Fund was founded and Dr. Mateo Fournier Quirós was named as the first dentist to work with that institution.

Costa Rica people

Costa Rica people has held its place at the top of the list of happiest countries in the world. The small
Central American country was ranked highest in 2009, 2012, and 2016, by the Happy Planet Index.
Costa Rica is also home to one of just five Blue Zones in the world, the Nicoya Peninsula, which
provides a great window into why the Costa Rica people are the happiest in the world.

What is a blue zone?

A blue zone is a place where people live longer and remain healthier and happier than anywhere
else in the world. The Nicoya Peninsula on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica is such a place. Journalist
Dan Buettner conducted a five-year investigation of these special places to gain insight into why
people are living so much longer, while maintaining optimal health and happiness. What he found
was similar in all of the blue zones and a good indications of key factors of happiness.

Family and community

In general in Costa Rica people, family and community are very important and an integral part of daily life.
Oftentimes, and as seen in the Nicoya Peninsula, multiple generations live within close proximity,
if not in the same house, to one another and are actively involved in each other lives. Neighbors
treat one another more like extended family. There is a great sense of connectivity between those
living in the same community. It is this connection that contributes to the overall happiness and
health of those residing in Costa Rica.
Sunshine and work
Agriculture is a major component of the Costa Rica people economy. Many spend their days working
with their hands outside, whether farming, fishing, raising cattle, pigs, and chickens, or working to
care for and cultivate the land. Remaining active, even in old age, is a key component to staying
healthy, strong, and happy. When the body is active happy hormones are released. Spending time
outdoors also helps to supply the body with vitamin D, which plays a major role in both physical
and mental health. A lack of vitamin D has been linked to osteoporosis, heart disease, and

Diet and sense of purpose

Families and communities, like those in the Nicoya Peninsula, typically eat home cooked and farm
fresh meals three times a day. The traditional Costa Rican diet consists of homemade corn
tortillas, rice, beans, plantains, cabbage and carrot salad, and a protein such as chicken, pork chop,
steak, or fish. Oftentimes, the women in the family prepare these meals daily for their families.
Sometimes, extra tortillas, empanadas, or even entire meals are prepared and sold within the
community. Costa Rica people take great pride and joy in taking care of their families and friends.

No army

65 years ago, President Jose Figueres abolished the military in Costa Rica. He literally took a
hammer to the wall around the national military headquarters. These headquarters were later
transformed into a national art museum. Figueres announced that funds once spent on the
military would now be allocated for education, healthcare, and environmental protection. Since
Costa Rica has been demilitarized, Costa Rica has had no conflict either civil or with neighbors that
would require staunch military action.

Peace for all

Good healthcare, education, and employment opportunities
Even though the GDP of Costa Rica is less than $8,000, there are few people who are unemployed,
uneducated, hungry, or homeless. In fact, Costa Rica has a literacy rate of 97.8%, an average life
expectancy of 78.6 years old, and an employment rate of 91.5%. While there is no perfect country,
Costa Rica does for the most part have its priorities straight when it comes to caring for its people.
Just imagine if other countries spent more money on health and education than on the military.
Costa is a great example of this policy.

The big picture

The Nicoya Peninsula is a prime example of how, when these components are present the people
tend to lead healthier, happier, and longer lives than those living elsewhere. It also indicates a lack
of materialism has a positive impact on a country’s happiness index. In Costa Rica there is an
emphasis on family and community, as well as leading an active and purpose filled lifestyle. Also
the fact that Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful and bio diverse countries in the world is an
excellent bonus.

Costa Rica dental business and the medical tourism.

Savings are what make Costa Rica one of the best countries for medical tourism in the world — Costa Rica dental medical tourism primary procedures are dentistry and cosmetic surgery, but also orthopedic, bariatric and eye surgery and a growing number of other procedures. Research and clinical initiatives are also enhancing Costa Rica’s capacity to treat patients with heart-related conditions, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s diseases, multiple sclerosis, pain management, and diabetes. Besides the savings, the warm weather and Costa Rica beauty is also a major contributor for medical tourism in Costa Rica.

Medical Tourism Costa Rica statistics from the Costa Rican Health Chamber, PROMED:

  • In 2016 Costa Rica welcomed some 70,000 medical tourists — up from 25,000 in 2008, 30,000 in 2009, 36,000 in 2010 and 48,000 in 2011.
  • Spending by medical tourists in 2016 amounted to $485 million.

  • The medical tourism sector supports some 20,000 jobs.
  • 42% of procedures are dental, 10% cosmetic, 22% other surgeries, 16% preventive medicine and
    other medical spending 10%.

Medical tourism growth in dental Costa Rica

Bill Nichol came from Canada for medical tourism in Costa Rica, he wanted new teeth and went home with a new wife and new teeth. Now 64, Nichol first came here nine years ago for 10 implants and 24 crowns, taking advantage of Costa Rica’s excellence as a destination for medical tourism. He met a Costa Rica woman whom he eventually married, and they live in New Brunswick now.

“Originally when I had my first work done, I think it was $65,000 in Canada for the restoration work, and in Costa Rica at that time it was $11,300,” he said.

“First of all, Costa Rica is already a well-known tourist destination, and then you have the proximity to the U.S., there’s lots of direct flights, and there’s warm weather all year long,” said Brad Cook, director of Medical Tours Costa Rica, which works with large North American companies like Ashley Furniture to save money on medical costs by sending patients here.

“And if people begin to research, they find Costa Rica medical tourism has a high standard in medical care,” he said. “In fact, the World Health Organization has Costa Rica ranked ahead of the U.S. in life expectancy. Here you get high quality at a more affordable price. It’s half to two-thirds less for dental treatments.”

Curry Willix, founder of the Dallas-based Medical Travel Option, said medical tourism in Costa Rica is also more personalized and not so rushed.

Costa Rica Dental Tourism delivers high quality at a more affordable price.

“Speaking as a U.S. resident, our healthcare system is a good one, but the way we care for patients here is decidedly hurried, it’s not ‘pura vida’ at all,” she said. “In the course of my lifetime, the experience of going to see the family doctor has changed so much, you are pretty much a number and you’ve got about 20 minutes or less to get in and out of the doctor’s office, if he’s running on time. So that’s a real distinction.”

Costa Rica’s popularity as a place for foreigners to seek treatment has also spawned a cottage industry that provides lodging, meals and transportation for these patients.

Private accommodations in Costa Rica

Che Tica Ranch is a full-service rehab center near Braulio Carrillo National Park run by a man from
Argentina, Ruben Martin, and his Tica wife Lorena.

“We’ve been here 18 years, we’re the pioneers here in Costa Rica,” Lorena said. “We pick patients up at the airport, take them to the hotel, then we install them here and take them to the appointment, usually the next day. With surgeries, depending on the surgery the patient spends a night in the hospital or if not comes here.

“We offer transportation to the airport, doctors, appointments. We have a nurse, we help with medications, we help with bathing, and we serve all three meals — breakfast, lunch, dinner and a coffee break.”

The facility has wheelchairs, walkers and hospital beds that go up and down with the touch of a button. Lorena said one man came from South Africa to get $20,000 worth of dental implants that would have cost him $60,000 in his home country.

5 Secrets For A Long And Happy Life, From Costa Rica’s Blue Zone

Premier Peque

The secret to living past 100 years old may lie in the gorgeous, sunny shores of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, one of five known Blue Zones in the world. Nicoya’s centennial residents are happy, healthy, and apparently immortal — and we think we’ve figured out why. Read on to learn the ultimate five secrets Asuaire Travel compiled to a long and happy life, from Costa Rica’s Blue Zone in:


1. They get the good kind of sun.

The dangers of sun damage have been well-documented, but it’s important to remember that some exposure to sunlight, in moderation, is crucial for acquiring essential Vitamin D, which helps prevent illnesses from certain cancers to depression — not to mention gives you an enviable glow.

2. They involve themselves in their community.

In this day and age it’s become increasingly easy to isolate ourselves from others, living our lives through our computer screens and Instagram posts. Nicoya’s centennials are proof of how vital it is to have daily, genuine, face-to-face interaction with people in our social circles. Don’t you agree?

3. They eat well, but conservatively.

A good tip for extending your lifespan is to eat a small, healthy dinner in the early evening. Nicoyans practice a diet of rice, beans, corn, greens and a small amount of meat in their daily meals, and they’re all the better for it.
It is algo a delicious and traditional meal in Costa Rica!

4. They make sure to reduce stress.

Stress: one of the modern world’s greatest antagonists. Some stress in life is inevitable, but Nicoya’s elderly citizens believe that those who take active steps to reduce unnecessary emotional and psychological turmoil have the potential to live longer and healthier lives, with illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and heart disease posing less of a threat. We definitely suggest a relaxing trip to Costa Rica to make your first step towards reducing stress!

5. They have a sense of purpose.

It’s common in later life for people to lose the sense that they’re needed and valuable to their families, friends and communities. By staying involved and active in caregiving and mentorship roles, enjoying hobbies, getting involved in their community, etc.; you can wake up every day with goals and ambition to continue to do your part. The people of Nicoya call this their “plan de vida” – life plan.

Beyond that, it’s good to remember the basics. So: drink lots of water, exercise, plan for the future… perhaps a trip to Costa Rica!
And you will morethen welcome to come to PREMIER DENTAL CARE to have the best experience on your dental care.

The family oral education

The Family Manual for Oral Health of the Directorate of Development of Health Services of the Costa Rican Social Security Fund is a basic guide for the community, trained volunteers, technicians and professionals, to take oral health education as part of the approach to the family nuclei.

The World Health Organization states: “Health is a fact that is determined by the effective functioning of the family as a biosocial unit in the context of a given society” This aspect is applicable in oral health education actions that they must begin in the families that constitute the central axis of the social nucleus of society.

The process of education for oral health should be given before birth in the family to build the foundations of the future; it is there where healthy societies are built. The family oral education is not only directed to prevent cavities and other oral diseases, but to generate healthy habits and lifestyles, reinforce the principles of each family and promote healthy family relationships.

It is necessary to work in a process of sensitization of the family scenario to involve all members, assigning responsibilities to each person within the family scheme to promote basic habits for good health such as healthy eating, hygiene, harmonious intrafamilial relationships, periodic dental consultation and environments healthy protected from harmful customs.

Oral health origin.

Oral health has its origin from pregnancy, with good physical and mental health of the mother and the care of pregnancy. The child requires careful attention from the first days of his birth being breastfeeding essential for growth and development.

Approximately six months of age, the eruption of the deciduous teeth begins, a period that can last up to three years. In some children there may be various discomforts such as irritability, inflammation, loss of appetite, sleep disturbances, among others, which must be monitored.

Parents or caregivers must provide special attention from the first days to teach correct habits of food, hygiene and tooth brushing. From three years on, a stage of greater socialization and autonomy begins, generally they attend maternity centers and educational centers, being these places suitable to reinforce habits of healthy eating and oral hygiene correct. The motto that should be taught to children from small is: “The teeth come out healthy and must remain healthy.

Oral health for adolescents.

The boy and girl at school and then in adolescence to ensure healthy teeth in the adult stage, must maintain good oral habits. In these periods, changes in height, weight, texture continue, the increase in psychomotor skills and abilities being relevant; psychological changes arise and social interaction increases, aspects that can be influenced by the adoption of harmful habits that affect their integral health with harmful repercussions in the oral condition.

Oral health in the adult stage.

In the adult stage, self-care practices must continue, applying the correct techniques of oral hygiene, strengthening healthy lifestyles with nutritious food, exercises that preserve physical health and striving to build a harmonious intrafamilial life that protects the adoption of harmful customs that affect the members of the family nucleus.

Older adults form an important collective; An important group will require support for causes or conditions of physical, mental or economic dependence. In this age, they generate changes in their oral structures so it is necessary to spare no effort in monitoring their hygiene habits. In this stage there is a high percentage of people who use dental prostheses that require special attention for their hygiene and daily use, due to functional and psychomotor restrictions of age.

As expressed in this manual: “The role of parents, grandparents, brothers, caregivers and repeated contact, are the main tools available to the family for education and based on them they will act and promote learning in the school, in the community and in the different programs carried out in the health centers “.
