All On Four Dental Implant Procedure Step by Step
Thank you for reading the All On four dental Implants step-by-step guide. If you plan to get a permanent bridge at our clinic in Cancun, please read the following page. The purpose of this page is to explain to you all the steps taken during the treatment. You can also call us anytime for any question you may have; just dial 1-888-818-6328
Take into consideration,
The All On Four dental implant procedure is divided into two stages for best results. You need to come down to Cancun two times to complete the treatment.
The first stage is the implant setting, and the second is the prosthetics trip.
* Remember there is a four to six months gap between each trip. Keep reading to learn why.
Step 1 - Make the First Contact
If you send us your X-rays or diagnosis, we will prepare a FREE pre-diagnose and an estimate based on your needs. Any extra information will help us to know your case better.
Step 2 - Plan Your Dental Vacations and Come Down to Cancun
Your dental coordinator will guide you through the entire process. You are under our care as soon as we pick you up from the airport.
We offer complimentary private transportation to and from the airport. Our clinic is in the heart of Cancun´s Cumbres area, downtown.
- We can also help you plan your trip.
- The first consultation will depend on the time you arrive in Cancun. If you land early, we can go to the clinic right after we pick you up from the airport. If you come late, the initial evaluation will be the following day.
We are just a few hours away from the United States. Some people look for All On 4 in Thailand or India, but those locations take long-hour flights. Cancun is closer; coming here is fast and easy.
Step 3 - First Consultation. Evaluation Day (X-Rays With 3D CT Scan)
The initial step of any full-mouth dental implant treatment is your first computerized evaluation with 3D technology. Of all the steps of the treatment, this is the most important.
We use CBCT (Cone beam computed tomography) for your initial evaluation and 3D X-ray CT Scan.
With the aid of digital CAD/CAM technology combined with Cone beam CT, our staff of dental specialists will perform a complete diagnosis. After the diagnosis, we will provide a dental plan. The 3D CT SCAN results are most important for your treatment. We will analyze and examine your bone density or any other problems you may have in the mouth.
We will also create surgical guides for implant surgery.
All the studies we perform in your initial evaluation are already included in any dental procedure. The digital diagnosis has no additional cost for you.
Step 4 - Surgery Day
We use the latest benefits in digital technology.
Our Maxillofacial surgeon will set the implants. You can have IV sedation or general anesthesia during surgery.
We address pain with local anesthesia and oral medications. IV Sedation is also available if you need to sleep during the procedure. If you need any extractions, we can perform them in the same session. We can also do any bone grafts or sinus lifts in case you need them.
You can expect some swelling and mild discomfort after the surgery. You will need a round of antibiotics and painkillers. We will provide the prescriptions. If you need something more potent such as codeine, please bring it from home.
We use the best brands, such as 3i or Nobel Biocare implants. For single posts, we may use Zimmer. Your dentist uses the same brands too. We will give you the serial number of your implants as well. In case you decide to do the prosthetic work back home. We import all the materials we use in the clinic.
We own the latest technology and equipment in the clinic and our in-house laboratory. We serve with the same technology as any premier All On four clinic in the United States.
Step 5 - Temporary Dentures
We will make temporary teeth or partial dentures one day after the surgery.
It depends on your case, but the common is to place temporal teeth over your gums 24 to 48 hours after the surgery. You will return home with temporary teeth to chew well and look normal.
Are permanent dentures thinner than temporary ones?
Yes, temporary teeth are acrylic; they will look fine and help you eat while your dental implants bond to the bone and heal.
A few months later, you will return to Cancun to get the Prettau Bridge, the most delicate restoration you can get for your All-On-4.

Step 6 - Second Trip / Full-arch Prettau Zirconia Bridge
After a few months, you will be ready for the second stage of the process. You will need to return to Cancun for 10-12 days for the prosthetic process.
We will check your oral and bone condition once again. We will perform a minimal surgery where we uncover the head of the implants through your gums.
We make wax tests, and we take impressions and molds. We manufacture your Zirconia Prettau Bridge at our in-house laboratory.
We supervise the preplanning and provisional and final restorations of all our patients.
We are the only dental clinic in Cancun with an all-inclusive digital laboratory and milling center. Please contact us anytime, and we will prepare a free quote for you.
