All-on-4 Dental Implants

Traditional dental implants offer unrivaled stability for dentures, but require a substantial investment in terms of both time and cost.

We offer All-on-4® implants, which can support a denture immediately after placement, at a fraction of what you would pay in the U.S.

Dr. Jose Valenzuela, Jr. in Los Algodones, Mexico, places the vast benefits of All-on-4 within your reach. 

How All-on-4 Works Four Implants Can Support a Full Denture

All-on-4 is a dental implant placement technique developed by Nobel Biocare™, one of the leaders in implant dentistry. It uses just four dental implants to support a full arch denture.

All-on-4 dental implants treatment is designed to be a minimally invasive, cost-effective method for restoring a full arch of teeth.

Nobel Biocare provides this educational video about how All-on-4 dental implants work.

All-on-4 vs. Traditional Implants

Number of Implants

When performing All-on-4 at our dental office in Los Algodones, our dentists place the two posterior implants at a 45-degree angle to make contact with as much bone tissue as possible. Our dentists also place two implants toward the front of the dental arch. This can enable patients with bone loss to undergo All-on-4 treatment without the need for a bone graft.

With traditional implants, a greater number of implants are used to secure the restoration in place.

Number of Missing Teeth

Traditional dental implants can be a great option for patients who are missing a single tooth, several missing teeth, or an entire arch of teeth.

The All-on-4 dental implants technique is ideal for patients missing a full arch of upper or lower teeth.

A Patient Shares Her Story Our Office in Mexico Puts Your Needs First

"Dr. Valenzuela and his staff are one of the most professional teams I had the pleasure of working with. I’m not the best dental patient, nervous and jumpy normally. The staff took their time and help me feel comfortable. I would give them 5 stars for service. Thanks to them, I can smile with confidence again." Kathy Compton

The Cost of All-on-4 Factors That Affect Pricing

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

There are several factors that 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 of treatment at our Los Algodones practice.

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.

The All-on-4 Treatment Procedure

It typically takes about two hours per arch to place All-on-4 implants. Total treatment time, with healing, takes up to six months.

Anesthesia

When we begin your treatment process at our office in Los Algodones, Mexico, we will administer the anesthesia and sedation of your choice to ensure your comfort.

Incisions

Next, we will make small incisions in your gums through which we will place the four implant posts. 

Implant Placement

We will place the two front implants vertically in your jaw, and the two back posts are placed at a slight angle.

Temporary

We usually place a temporary denture within a day of your implant surgery so you can enjoy full dental function while you heal.

Osseointegration

It typically takes four to six months for the implants to fuse with your jawbone. This process is called osseointegration. It involves the surrounding bones and soft tissues growing around the implant posts, holding them securely in place and making them a part of your natural anatomy.

Custom Dentures

Once you have fully healed, we can design and place your custom denture for a fully restored smile. We will take digital impressions of your healthy dental arches, design a restoration that complements your features, and have it fabricated at a quality dental lab. As the last step of treatment, we will secure your new denture to your implants.

All-on-4 Recovery FAQ

What Side Effects Should I Expect?

If you were put under IV sedation, you may feel groggy in the hours after your surgery. Bleeding typically stops within a day, and can be reduced by biting on a piece of gauze. Discomfort is common after any type of surgery, and usually subsides within a week. Swelling is also expected after surgery, and may last for a week or two.

How Can I Reduce Pain after Surgery?

Pain is one of our patients' biggest concerns during and after surgery. That is why we use local anesthesia and sedation to keep you comfortable during the dental implant procedure. Before the effects of these sedatives wear off, patients should take pain medication to reduce discomfort after surgery. Taking pain medication on schedule for a few days after surgery is the best way to minimize discomfort. In addition, patients can change the way they eat for a few days.

What Foods Can I Eat after Surgery?

To reduce discomfort, we recommend that patients consume liquids or soft foods while healing. Some options include smoothies, soups, noodles, cooked cereals, yogurt, soft potatoes, and more. Plan meals and snacks ahead of time so you can feel satisfied after eating without experiencing any discomfort during the healing process. In most cases, patients should eat a diet of soft foods for up to one week after the dental implants are surgically placed.

How Long Do All-on-4 Implants Last?

With proper oral and periodontal care, the All-on-4 implants themselves can last a lifetime. Your dentures, on the other hand, may need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years if you properly care for them. While the high-quality materials we use to craft dentures are durable and resistant to stains and damage, they eventually begin to wear. In addition, the shape of the dental arch may change with time. That is why we will periodically recommend denture replacement to improve the appearance and fit of the prosthesis.

How Do I Care for My Implants and Dentures?

Although you no longer have any natural teeth after All-on-4 treatment, thereby preventing tooth decay from ever forming, the gums and underlying bone structures are still susceptible to dental damage. It is important to keep the gums and adjacent dentures as clean as possible. Clean your mouth at least twice a day with denture-approved toothpaste and a soft-bristled manual or electric toothbrush, in addition to other special tools. Proxy brushers, floss threaders, and Waterpiks can reach between the dentures and dental implants to thoroughly clean these areas and keep them free of harmful dental bacteria.

Experience Comfortable, Affordable Care Set Up a Consultation at Our Practice

Cost and fear of pain are two of the biggest factors holding patients back from seeking All-on-4 treatment. By undergoing treatment with our skilled dentists in Mexico, you can receive affordable care. In addition, we offer various sedation methods to keep you comfortable during treatment, and we can prescribe pain medication to reduce discomfort after the dental implant procedure.

Life-Changing Results Are Within Reach Another Success Story from Our Practice in Mexico

"My wife has just completed the implant procedures for both upper and lower teeth... Everybody on the team did a wonderful job! I cannot tell you how grateful we both are for the results. The prices were much, much lower than the U.S. and the care the staff took to help us was impeccable! I highly recommend Dr. Valenzuela and his team to anyone. You will NOT be disappointed." Andrej Sodoma

Alternative Treatments

Traditional Dental Implants

Traditional dental implants are, in many cases, considered the best possible treatment option. In addition to full arch replacement, traditional dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. If a patient does not have sufficient jawbone density, a bone graft or sinus lift procedure will often be required to ensure the success of dental implant treatment.

Traditional Dentures
