Dental Implants

Dental implants offer unrivaled stability for dentures, but they require a substantial investment in both time and cost.

Dr. Jose Valenzuela Jr. in Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico, offers the innovative All-on-4® treatment concept, a faster and more cost-efficient solution for patients who need to replace most or all of their teeth. 

So what makes All-on-4 dental implants a great choice?

Restoring Your Smile with All-on-4

Can Save You Time and Money

Lower Costs

With All-on-4, a full denture is supported by only four implants, saving you money.

Minimally Invasive

Placing fewer implants also means your surgery is shorter and less invasive.

Immediate Results

We can attach a temporary restoration so you can enjoy full function right away.

How Is All-On-4 Different

from Traditional Dental Implant Treatment?

All-on-4 is a dental implant placement technique developed by Nobel Biocare™—one of the leaders in implant dentistry

The treatment is designed to be a minimally invasive, cost-effective method for restoring an entire arch of teeth. For patients with bone loss at our Los Algodones office, All-on-4 can often eliminate the need for a bone graft. When performing All-on-4, dentists place the two posterior implants at a 45-degree angle to make contact with as much bone tissue as possible. All-on-4 also allows dentists to attach a temporary denture on the same day of surgery so that you never have to go without teeth.

Most Patients Who Are Missing Teeth

Will Qualify for All-on-4 Implants

Generally, if you qualify for traditional dental implants, you are also a candidate for All-on-4. In fact, some patients who cannot receive traditional implants, such as those who cannot undergo a bone graft, may still have access to treatment with All-on-4.

An ideal candidate for All-on-4 meets certain requirements, including:

Good Oral Health

Decay and other oral health issues can affect the success of your implants.

Good Overall Health

Health concerns, such as poorly controlled diabetes, can limit healing.

Healthy Gums

Issues with the health of your gums could affect the stability of your implants.

Sufficient Bone Density

While All-on-4 implants require less bone, you still need sufficient bone tissue.

Worried about Going to Mexico

for Dental Work?

Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center

Patients throughout the United States and Canada visit our Los Algodones dental office every day because our treatment is trusted, safe, and affordable. In Mexico, the price of dental care is much lower than that of American dentists, but we operate with the same high level of care and safety standards at all times. 

In addition, our entire personnel is fluent in English and can coordinate your stay from start to finish so that you can focus on yourself, your family, and your new smile.

Advanced Technology 

for More Precise Treatment

At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center, we have a range of state-of-the-art technologies that allow us to customize your treatment in the office. We use computed tomography (CT) scans to carefully map out your treatment, as well as intraoral scans and smile design software to design your restoration. Our team can also print a surgical guide on our in-office 3-D printer to ensure the precise placement of each of the four implants.

In addition, we use advanced techniques, such as platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF®), to speed the healing process after bone grafting and implant placement.

How to Prepare

for Your Dental Implant Procedure

The first step in starting dental implant treatment is contacting our Los Algodones dental practice. Our English-speaking personnel will coordinate your transportation, accommodations, and book your procedure.

To ensure the success and safety of your dental treatment, we recommend that you: 

  • Stop smoking: Smoking can result in poor healing and increase the risk of complications during your procedure.
  • Keep your blood sugar in check: If you are diabetic, you should maintain healthy glucose levels to help your body heal more efficiently. 
  • Prepare a list of medications: Bring a list of medications to your appointment so that our dentist can ensure that none of them counteract with the treatment.

Our team is always available to answer your questions about treatment, and will provide a full list of pre-operative instructions prior to surgery.

All-on-4 Treatment Takes Several Months

But You Can Have Full Function While You Heal

  1. First, we will administer anesthesia and sedation to ensure your comfort.
  2. Dr. Valenzuela will make small incisions into your gums. 
  3. He will place the two front implants vertically into your jaw and the two back posts at a slight angle.
  4. We usually place a temporary restoration so you can enjoy full function while you heal.
  5. It typically takes four to six months for the implants to fuse with your jawbone.
  6. Once you have fully healed, Dr. Valenzuela can design and place a custom restoration for a fully restored smile.

Does All-on-4 Cost More Than Other Options?

Replacing all the teeth in your upper or lower jaw can become expensive. While traditional dentures are less expensive than implant-supported, they typically require more maintenance costs in the long-term. In general, All-on-4 implants are a more cost-effective option for permanently restoring a full arch of teeth.

There are several factors which can affect the final cost of your treatment, including:

Preparatory Procedures

Bone grafts, extractions, or other preparatory treatments can raise your final cost.

Restoration Type

The materials used to make your restoration will affect the final price.

Sedation

While sedation will make treatment more comfortable, it does add to your total bill.

Advanced Techniques

Using advanced treatments, such as PGRF, can speed healing but also raise cost.

Great service, great prices. Cleaner than other dentists that I have been to in Arizona. Always on the cutting edge.
