Dental treatment is an expensive undertaking, especially if you look at an all on 4 cost. Canberra dentists will charge upwards of AUD $30,000 for an all-on-4 procedure compared to less than AUD $15,000 for the same treatment in Asia. In general, you can save as much as 70% on the cost of your dental fees by choosing to undergo your treatment abroad.
Average Dental Fees Abroad
All-on-4’s is one of the most expensive dental treatments currently available on the market. Considered to be a cosmetic procedure, it can be difficult for most patients to be able to afford the $30,000 plus dollars that domestic dentists in Australia are currently charging.
However, help is at hand, and by undergoing the treatment abroad you can save literally thousands of dollars without compromising on the quality of your treatment. Dentists in Bali , and also Thai dentists , are renowned for the quality of their workmanship, with most providing superior treatments for significantly less than the fees being charged by Australian dentists.

What’s Involved in an All-on-4 Procedure?
All-on-4’s are a set of four dental implants that are inserted directly into the jawbone that support a full bridge of false teeth. The process usually entails 3 stages, and can take up to 12 months to successfully complete.
The first visit to your dentist will usually involve a complete examination of the mouth and jaw to ascertain the exact condition of your bone structure and identify your individual surgical requirements. This process will probably involve a number of 3D scans and/or x-rays, and will also include a series of impressions that will be used to fabricate your replacement teeth.
During your second visit, you will have four implants inserted directly into your jawbone, two near the back and two at the front. Your dentist will need to make four incisions into your gum to allow four small holes to be drilled into your jawbone to allow the implants to be inserted.
Once the implants have been put in place, your jawbone needs time to integrate the implants securely through a process known as osseointegration. This, essentially, is the natural process of the titanium implants fusing with your jawbone to form a secure foundation for your artificial bridge to be affixed.
