These offer a relatively permanent and cost effective solution to dentures, are healthier and look and feel like normal teeth.
Costa Rica All on Four – complete teeth replacement
For a single tooth replacement, a dental implant is a better bet as you don’t have to remove the tooth. However, if you lose more teeth, then an all on four is a great option particularly if you already have
● Lost a number of adjacent teeth
● Have multiple cavities and your teeth cannot be saved
● Find difficulty chewing with your current teeth or dentures
● Don’t want to waste time getting multiple procedures done
● Want a full set of teeth quickly
Costa Rica all on 4 is a great solution to these dental problems and will enable you to have a full set of teeth.
What is All on Four?
All on four is a new method of teeth replacement. Four titanium implants are inserted into the gums and these can support an entire arch of teeth. These implants require minor surgery for insertion, but the procedure is pain free as you are under anesthesia.
Once the titanium posts are inserted, temporary crowns are put on so that they function as replacement teeth. After a few months, when the bone has grown over the titanium posts, the crowns are replaced with those that are permanent and match the color of your teeth.
The time gap is important as the bone growth results in permanent anchoring and natural feeling teeth. The normal bone growth also results in a natural looking jaw line and the implants also prevent further bone loss that can occur with dentures.
All on 4 Costa Rica can help you by applying a bridge of between 12 and 14 teeth. It is possible to get this done for the lower jaw or the upper jaw or even both, depending on your requirements and your dental health.
Benefits of All on Four
If you have lost a number of teeth, then all on 4 is better than a single dental implant. In any case it is not possible and unnecessary to have a mouthful of titanium posts inserted one after the other into your gums, when only four will do to support the entire arch of teeth. Among the benefits of all on four are:
● Shorter treatment time
● Fewer incisions
● Shorter healing time
● Cost effectiveness
● Reduces risk on bone atrophy
● Relatively permanent or long lasting
● Mouthful of teeth in one day
● Teeth feel natural
● Teeth can be taken care of in the normal way (brushing and flossing)

All these advantages make all on four a treatment of choice for teeth replacement, more so when compared to dentures.
