Read on to find out more with Dental Departures.

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

This full-arch restoration is a patented technique provided by Nobel Biocare that uses four dental implants (per jaw) to support a full arch of replacement teeth.

Once the implants have been surgically inserted, you'll head back home in order to allow them to fuse with the jawbone (a process called osseointegration). During this time, you will be giving a lightweight denture to wear - but this is only the first step of the treatment.

After around four to six months, you'll return to the dentist in Los Algodones for the "restoration phases". Now securely integrated with the bone, each dental implant acts as a tooth root, providing a stable base to support a custom-made, permanently-fixed dental prosthesis holding a whole row of replacement teeth (crowns). 

The two rear implants tend to be longer than traditional implants, and are inserted into the jaw at 45-degree angles, thus negating the need for bone-grafting. This technique is a suitable solution for patients who previously could not have implants due to bone loss.

Why Travel to Los Algodones?

This Mexican town is a dentistry Mecca, attracting patients from all over North America. In fact, there is a dentist, or even two or three, on almost every corner.

The town is walking distance of the US-Mexico border crossing at Andrade, meaning you can drive south, leave your car at one of the secure parking lots on the US side and then walk into Mexico for your appointment. 

The quality of care in Los Algodones is also of an excellent standard. Many of our partner dentists have been trained in the US and are members of the American Dental Association or accredited by one of the leading US accreditation agencies.
