In the USA, the All-on-4® treatment concept, which is used to replace a whole arch of teeth, can really make a dent in your bank account. In Mexico, however, you can save thousands on the cost of dental care without having to compromise on quality. 

More people than ever are taking advantage of the lower prices south of the border every year. In Tijuana, you can get the dental treatments you need, all while kicking back on the beach, enjoying the nearby ocean breeze in your hair, and the sand between your toes.

What Is the All-on-4® treatment concept?

Provided by Nobel Biocare, the All-on-4® treatment concept involves the restoration of either arch of teeth using four implants and a fixed bridge. 

After creating a detailed treatment plan, the dentist will insert two implants into the upper jaw, and two more implants into the lower jaw, both supporting the arches in the mouth and acting as an anchor point for the installation of a new set of teeth.

The All-on-4® treatment concept is recommended for patients suffering from significant tooth loss, decay, facial trauma, or underlying medical condition affecting the functionality of the teeth.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

The first step is a consultation with a dentist. After a thorough examination, the dentist will determine if the treatment would be beneficial to you, as well as exactly which treatment to perform, as the technique can vary slightly. Once approved, you and your dentist will set a date for the procedure to be carried out.

On the day of the surgery, you will normally be given a local anesthetic with sedation to keep you comfortable and sedated throughout the operation. Generally, the dentist will install a set of temporary teeth that will allow your mouth to function until a permanent set can be installed once the mouth is fully healed.

Will I Need Time to Recover?

Recovery time depends on the patient and the extent of damage to the mouth. For most patients, the recovery time is up to 6 months. Once this period has passed, you will return to your dentist, where he/she will install a set of permanent teeth to the anchor points of the dental implants.

While the recovery time can take a while, what better place to enjoy the downtime than beautiful sunny Tijuana?

You can spend your days relaxing at the beach, enjoying a refreshing cocktail, soaking up the sun, or simply enjoying all of the delicious foods and rich culture that Tijuana has to offer.

Note: After surgery, the implants will take around three to four months to fuse with the jawbone (osseointegration), while the gums and fixed prosthesis should also be protected. Thus, patients are advised to follow a diet of semi-solid/soft food during this time.
