All on 4

The All on 4 implant is an innovative technique that provides the option to replace the upper and lower teeth functionality with the help of titanium implants screwed into the bone from different angles and then attaching a retainer bar to them. These can be surgically inserted into both your upper maxilla and lower jawbone. This is a procedure that can be done in a few days during your vacation in sunny Cancun.

 

image-all-on-4-dental-implantsFirst, the remaining teeth on the upper maxilla or lower jaw are extracted under local anesthesia. With a specific type of surgery taking approximately 2 hours the dentist will place four regular size implants in your jawbone/maxilla. Once the implants are set, we take impressions to make a milled titanium bar that will then be screwed into a retainer to those implants. Having no teeth is a handicap for millions of people around the world. They have serious problems eating and chewing harder foods like apples, carrots and steaks etc. It’s time you stop suffering on a daily basis not being able to eat properly when what you want is to have a fulfilling, healthy life style, and thus have also a more comfortable social experience. The doctor will consider all factors involved, like age, strength and the thickness of your jaw or maxilla bone to know if you are a candidate for this treatment.

 

About 95% of cases can be rehabilitated with the All on 4 procedure. In the case you don’t have enough bone volume, your doctor will likely suggest you get mini implants and snap on dentures instead.  The only thing you will need to do for us to make a diagnostic is to send us your details and also a panoramic x-ray of your mouth or photos. In the case of photos it’s suggested you send an email with pictures of a front view of your smile, view of your maxilla, view of your jaw, and two profile photos showing your teeth on each side to have a clear image of your mouth.

 

Benefits

Once you have All On 4 on your arch, you will be able to recover functionality and proper strength in your mouth to eat all kinds of healthy foods. Many people neglect their nutrition when they have missing, decaying or loose teeth. Your quality of life will improve also socially as your smile will look natural again. You won’t have to hide your smile anymore or worry about loose dentures with your beautiful new teeth.
Additionally, having the All On 4 is more comfortable than regular dentures since the retainer bar does not rest over your gums, but over the implants. As the retainer bar is screwed on you will never have to take them off. You will only be required to visit your dentist once a year who will take them off to give them their normal maintenance service.

 

The cost of All On 4 at our clinic in Cancun is much lower than in other countries. We use the same materials and equipment that dentists use in the USA and Canada for a fraction of the cost.

Time

image-all-on-4-woman-dental-implants-vacationThe procedure usually takes 10 days to complete and you will be back home with beautiful teeth after just one trip to Cancun. The Doctor will evaluate on a case by case basis if you require additional time for healing before setting the retainer bar, but extracting any decaying teeth and placing the implants will take approximately just a few hours. The next step on your procedure would be taking an impression to make the milled titanium retainer bar. The doctor will screw the finished retainer bar to the implants, fixing it in its place. By the end of 10 days you will be flashing your brand new smile to everyone you know! This is known as “Immediate Load”.

 

During the first few days after fitting the retainer bar, you might experience some swelling, soreness and discomfort while your bone and gums heal and your mouth gets used to the implants. You will be required to take some medication like anti-inflammatories, antibiotics and perhaps a pain killer (optional). The doctor will provide you with the prescription to buy these here in Cancun.

We use Grade 5 Titanium for all our implants. The bio compatibility of titanium with the human body is EXCELLENT, especially when direct contact with tissue or bone is required, making it a perfect and obvious choice for dental implants. This grade of titanium has been in clinical use for over 30 years and is totally safe.

 

There is always a small chance that your body might reject any kind of foreign object (this is true for all medical surgeries). If one of your implants gets loose or falls out, the only thing you need to do is to save the clean implant in a plastic bag and bring it back to us and we will replace/fit it back at no additional cost. The initial warranty is applicable for 5 years, as long as you have taken proper hygiene care of the implants and retainer bar, following the indications that the doctor provided you with on your first visit. You should never neglect your new teeth.
