"What I can say about this technology done by Dr. Sanmartín, is that it is excellent, very comfortable and fast. Despite my doubts in the use of a dental implant and in the implementation of new implant technologies, I cannot deny that the outcome of this system is the best. The effects afterwards are practically none, to the point where I almost did not feel any type of ache. The results after having the implant placed, are satisfactory, so much in regard to my oral health, as to my personal being, since I consider of great importance the fact that a person's smile and more even so that of a professional, because is part of this presentation card. I want to thank Dr. Sanmartín, his office and all his staff for all the details, the cordiality and the fine manners and above all, for the work done, and which exceeded the expectations that I had about this type of technology." —Luis A.

"My name is Víctor Saavedra, and by means of this note I give testimony that the 4 Immediate Function Implants – OnePiece placed by Dr. Sanmartín has been something really wonderful. The implants were done with no pain, I have no discomfort. I feel good, can eat well and I can floss and use the toothbrush normally." —Víctor Saavedra

"I am an Engineer and live in the city of David, Province of Chiriquí in the Republic of Panama. During 7 years I suffered the loss of one of my upper front tooth, in a car accident. Seeing myself in the mirror and noticing that my smile was not the same as before and when comparing the pictures previous to the accident and the ones after, that was very painful to me; only then, I came to value those things that oftentimes we take for granted."

"Everything changed, I did not have a natural smile, eating and and attending social events was all a big trauma for me; in conclusion my self-esteem was very low. Until one day I heard about the Implants of Clinica Dental Sanmartín; I decided to give myself an opportunity. The truth is that I DO NOT REGRET IT, I recoved my smile, my self-esteem; it was one of the best investments. Besides recovering my smile, I have learned the importance of Oral Hygiene. I would like to praise the Professionalism and the excellent customer service that Clinica Dental Sanmartín has. I feel extremely happy, I recuperated my smile." —Karol Lineth Pitty

"One day while taking my daughters to school, I heard the ad of Clinica Sanmartín, who presented me the option of a Intraoral Device. I was well treated and they answered all my questions. I had braces for many years, so to have an appliance in my mouth will not be new to me. I decided to have the appliance made, and have been using it daily for 6 months. My sleep is back to being restful and I got use to wearing it very quickly. I have accustomed so much to sleeping with the appliance, that the night that I fall asleep without the device, I wake up when I hear I am snoring and gusping for air. Based on my experience, the Intraoral Device has been the best option and the path to be able to recover resting at night. I strongly recommend it as an option to consider for Sleep Apnea and Snoring." Read the rest of Jaime C. GarcĂ­a A’s testimonial.
