What is All-On-4 Dental Implants?
The All-On-4 is a treatment where four dental implants are set into your jawbone or maxilla to load a fixed bridge on top of it.
For the upper maxilla or lower maxilla, two of the dental implants will be set straight and the other two are set angled.
The setting of the implants is the foundation for the hybrid denture we load and screw on top of them.
Once screwed to the posts, the fixed bridge (porcelain or zirconium/titanium) will stay still in your mouth. As it goes screwed to the implants, it will not slip or move.
The All On Four provides stability and a strong bite. You will be able to chew hard foods!
FIXED DENTURES THAT DON`T SLIP
Common dentures require dental glue in a try to keep them in place. Using these adhesives on a regular basis can also bring stomach problems.
With implant supported dentures, you get a hybrid fixed bridge. This bridge is secured to the implants set into your jawbone before.
You will get immediate stability. You will be able to bite, chew, speak or laugh with confidence as soon as you complete the treatment.
PALATE LESS DENTURE TO TASTE YOUR FOOD AND FEEL THE TEMPERATURE OF IT
With regular dentures and overdentures, you have a covered palate.
With a covered palate, you can not taste the flavors or feel the food's temperature. Plus the bulky device is always felt!
With the fixed hybrid denture, you get rid of the palate. This is a fixed bridge that is secured over your implants. You will be able to chew and taste your foods just like when you had your regular teeth in optimal shape.
Why should you invest in permanent teeth?
If your teeth are in bad shape or missing you probably know that at some point, you might need a permanent solution.
The most straight-forward treatment is the All On Four. The benefits are immediate as soon as you finish the procedure,
How stable is the All On Four treatment?
In the end of the 90's, a Portuguese doctor called Paulo Maló, designed a new concept for a fixed denture.
By 2004, Dr. Maló teamed up with Nobel Biocare and they followed over 2,000 cases. Today, there are over 100,000 patients worldwide that have received this treatment.
The design of the treatment has developed over time. Nowadays, it is the top notch solution for people that need full mouth implants.
First, four implants will be surgically set per arch (or six for the case of the All-On-6 treatment). The implants are set into a jawbone in an angled position or where you have a better bone density.
The denture, or bridge, is screwed onto the top of these implants providing a secure grip. Also, being a palateless denture, these implants would feel like real teeth!
The fixed bridge will not move or slip. There is also no need for any dental adhesives.
You will be able to eat again all the foods you could chew before you lost your teeth. Chewy foods, hard foods, or anything you can not eat now with your common dentures.
The key of the All-On-4 is the stability you have when you chew or bite.
What happens during and after the dental implants surgery?
After your clinical evaluation with 3D imagery - CT Scan, we will create surgical guides to set your implant. All the technology we use at our clinic is computerized.
The setting of the tooth implants is a quick and minor surgery that lasts about 90 minutes per arch. Four implants will be set per arch (or six, in the case of an All-On-6 treatment).
During the surgery, we use local anesthesia. Or you can choose sedation at an extra cost.
Right after the surgery, you could feel mild discomfort and swelling that will be addressed with analgesics and antibiotics. Depending on each case, but usually, after a couple of days after the
Depending on each case, but usually, after a couple of days after the surgery, we are able to provide you temporary teeth.
They will help you eat and look normal for the next four to six months. We also have available "Teeth In A Day" at an extra cost.
After four to six months, you will return to Cancun for the second stage of the treatment. Through a minimal surgery, we will uncover the head of those implants and we will prepare them to be load after wax tests.
Eight to ten days later, we deliver a hybrid bridge, titanium/porcelain or zirconium. The fixed bridge is secured to the head of the implants set months earlier.
How to know if I am a candidate for the All-on-4?
Some patients have bigger jawbones or have a larger jawbone structure. In those cases, we will suggest the All-On-6. That means placing six implants, instead of four. The All On Six can provide extra stability, in special for those patients with low bone density.
If you are missing one or several teeth, then this is the right choice for you. The All On Four is good option in the next scenarios:
The All On 4 in Mexico is the same as the treatment in the United States?
Yes, the All On 4 in Mexico has the same quality as any dental clinic in the United States. We use 3D CAD/CAM computerized technology to create surgical guides for your implant palcement. Which is necessary to provide an exact fit over the implants.
