All About All On 4 Dental Implants
What is All-On-4 Dental Implants?
The All On 4 dental implants is a treatment where four dental implants are set into your jawbone or maxilla to load a fixed, Zirconia Bridge (full-arch Prettau bridge) on top of it.
For the upper maxilla, two of the dental implants will be set straight and the other two are set in an angled position. Or anywhere where you have best bone availability.
- The implants surgery is the foundation for the Zirconia Bridge.
The palateless denture will be fitted and screwed to the head of the All On Four implants.
- Once screwed to the head of the implants (the abutments), the Prettau bridge will stay still in place.
It will not slip or move.
- The All On Four Implants provides stability and a strong bite.
You will be able to chew hard foods and speak with confidence!
The All On Four is load with a palateless denture That Doesn't Slip Or Move
Common dentures require dental glue in a try to keep them in place. Using these adhesives on a regular basis can also cause stomach problems. The implant supported dentures are the Prettau Zirconia full-arch bridge.
These palateless dentures are 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.
A palateless denture will make you able to taste your food`s temperature and taste. With regular dentures and overdentures, you have a covered palate that is used to apply the messy adhesive. With a covered palate, you can not taste the flavors or feel the food's temperature.
With the All On Four, you get rid of the covered palate. This is a fixed denture that is secured to 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 on permanent teeth?
If your teeth are in bad shape or missing you probably know that at some point, you might need a permanent solution. You will save thousands because you will not have to spend thousands on temporal fixtures and patches. With the All On Four, you can address the problem once and for all because you will only have to visit your dentist every six months to clean them.
*Your dentist back home will unscrew the locked dentures just for a cleaning and a checkup on your gums and tissue.
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 implant-supported dentures is the stability you will get when you want to 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:

Which are the most common All On Four dental implants problems?
The most common problem would be losing your implants due to an infection or a bone rejection.
After the implants surgery, it takes four to six months until the implant bonds with the bone. The process is the Osseointegration; it is a natural response from your body.
During the waiting period, your oral hygiene plays a crucial role. Your daily habits must improve as well. You need to brush three times a day, use mouthwash and water floss like Waterpik, and keep a rigorous hygiene control.
If your hygiene after the surgery is weak, you can develop bacteria around the stitches, and it can cause an infection. The round of antibiotics is also essential, and to follow the dentist instructions.
The most common dental implants problems are when the bond fails to bond with the titanium screw. It has a more significant rejection incidence in people who smoke. The nicotine and the heat don't help on the dental implant recovery or healing.
With huge savings, you can have "dental vacations" and enjoy the Cancun while you restore your smile with dental implants. The estimated All on 4 cost in the United States can be expensive and unaffordable for many. It can cost up to $50K per arch in clinics such as Clear Choice or Affordable Dentures!
