Are you aware of the news?! Know that the Unified Health System (SUS) is making dental implants available to anyone! That's right, anyone can go to SUS and have their smile renewed with beautiful and super natural teeth.
What is a Dental Implant?
The dental implant is a surgery that is performed by a qualified professional where a fixed base is implanted in the jaw and replaces the old dentures, giving more beauty and comfort to the patient.
After all, what can I do for free at the dentist through Sus?
Do you want to know what you can do for free 100% at the dentist through SUS? Come with us and learn more! Through SUS you can do much more than basic things like cleaning and evaluations, the Brasil Sorridente program offers things like:
- wisdom tooth extraction;
- installation of appliances;
- osseointegrated dental implant;
- remove tartar;
- orthognathic surgery;
- dentures on implants
- and many other procedures.
However, although it is the right of every Brazilian to go to the dentist and have a dental implant or another procedure, it is necessary that the municipality where you live allocate the funds for this. However, if your city does not have infrastructure or a qualified professional, you will be referred to another city in your region and will enter a queue that follows the same criteria as a conventional SUS queue.

Although the Brazilian people have the good habit of always taking good care of their teeth since childhood, unfortunately they are also subject to a series of oral diseases that can lead to serious oral problems.
In addition, the Associação Brasileira de Odontologia recommends that everyone go to the dentist at least every 6 months on a regular basis, however not everyone has the financial conditions to go to the dentist and pay the costs of dental treatment, especially as in dental implant cases. In this sense, the SUS created the Brasil Sorridente program, which gives patients the right to undergo a wide range of dental procedures free of charge.
Thus, now, every Brazilian can go to the dentist and have their oral health taken care of by a professional.
After all, am I entitled to a dental implant?
Although having a dentist in the SUS is a right for everyone, wanting to have a dental implant is not enough to be able to do so. This way, you must go to your health center or also known as ESF or PSF and take your personal documents and proof of address to schedule an evaluation with the responsible dentist.
Then, the dentist will evaluate your mouth and decide, based on SUS criteria, if you join the queue to have the dental implant you've dreamed of.
Once approved, you enter the queue and have to wait until you are called.
