All on 4 in Croatia

The Ultimate Guide to All on 4 in Croatia

Last fact-checked: 2 April 2020

Look forward to saving thousands on an All-on-4® in Croatia . This innovative (and normally very costly) procedure replaces full dentures with fixed, permanent teeth so that you don’t have to feel self-conscious about your smile anymore. These specialist implants also give you back the full function of your teeth, allowing you to eat whatever you like.

What Are All-on-4s?

All-on-4s are simply a complete arch of replacement teeth attached permanently to four dental implants. They are for people with no teeth, or who have lost most of them. While a great alternative to dentures, the price is something many people just can’t afford.

In Croatia, these dental restorations cost considerably less than at dentists in the UK and other European countries, making them a possibility for those who have previously dismissed them due to the high price.

Am I Suitable for an All-on-4 Procedure?

Your health, rather than your age, is more of a determining factor for the procedure, but smoking is considered incompatible with dental implants. Cigarette smoking reduces the blood flow in the mouth, decreasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients your cells receive. This means healing and fighting infection will be compromised, which is a problem throughout the life of your dental implants, but particularly after they have first been placed and the healing process is of the utmost importance.

Your general health is also an important consideration in achieving a successful treatment outcome for All-on-4s. Diagnostic assessments, such as CT scanning, will help your dentist determine the viability of your jaw bone for holding the implants.

Even if you have been told in the past that you are not suitable for dental implants without a prior bone graft procedure  because you have bone loss, this does not necessarily mean you are not suitable for All-on-4 implants. This procedure has some important distinctions from the traditional implant procedure, which means they can still be successfully placed even in a patient with some degree of bone loss. This is because the rear implants are longer than traditional implants, placed at a tilted 45-degree angle, rather than 90 degrees. This provides greater stability and a larger surface area for bone-to-implant contact.

Is an All-on-4 a Good Procedure to Have in Croatia as a Dental Tourist?

  1. All-on-4 treatment is a major procedure; however, thanks to its warm climate, attractive scenery and generally slower pace of life, Croatia makes for an ideal place to rest up following your surgery. All of the major cities and coastal towns are home to spas and wellness retreats, while organised bus or boat tours (where not much walking is involved) could be a good way of seeing some of the sights after a few days of recuperation. Our best advice is to take it easy in comfortable surroundings, like on the beach or by the pool, and schedule any vigorous activity before the day of your surgery.
  1. The All-on-4 procedure was pioneered by Portuguese implantologist Dr Paulo Malo. His specific technique is now taught worldwide and is carried out to his specifications with a very high success rate. There is no need to worry about having the treatment carried out in Croatia; booking through Dental Departures ensures your chosen dentist has undergone the same training with similar expertise as your dentist back home.
  1. Croatia may be full of historic, old cities that charm its visitors, but that doesn’t mean it’s short of modern, up-to-date facilities, amenities and services. The dental clinics in Croatia are easily a match for any dental clinic at home with state-of-the-art technologies, including CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture), digital x-rays and 3D CT scanning. Dentists are well-trained, highly skilled and internationally-renowned hygiene and safety protocols are adhered to.
  1. Croatia is blessed with alluring destinations throughout the country. From Split’s UNESCO heritage city within a city on the Dalmatian Coast through to the capital, Zagreb’s 18th and 19th-century architecture to great beaches in locations like Rovinj, there is something to enthrall everyone.

Can You Recommend Good Clinics for All-on-4s in Croatia?

Absolutely. The clinics that Dental Departures partners with have already been background checked by us. We know how important it is to find a trustworthy facility, and this becomes all the more difficult in a foreign country (especially given that you may not have recommendations from family, friends or neighbours to rely on).

We personally check out legal/criminal records and visit clinics, as well as collect real patient reviews, verify dentist qualifications and confirm professional memberships—you can see details under each clinic listing on our website. We also publish clinic photos, maps and prices to make it easier for our patients to choose a dentist in Croatia. All the relevant information is at your fingertips.

Some of our most popular clinics in Croatia to consider for your All-on-4 procedure include:

What Is the Procedure for an All-on-4? How Long Will I Need to Stay in Croatia?

Your dentist will be able to give you further information on how long you should stick around in Croatia for your All-on-4 procedure. Although the actual All-on-4 procedure is carried out in one session (and that includes removal of any existing teeth, insertion of implants and attachment of new teeth), the success of the procedure is largely down to the meticulous planning beforehand. Thus, the All-on-4 procedure is summarised as:

1: Initial Consultation & Assessment: Prior to visiting a dentist in Croatia, you will already have sent digital x-rays through to your chosen who will have made a preliminary assessment that you are a suitable candidate. This is, of course, subject to further examination and appropriate tests, such as 3D/CT scans, once you are in Croatia. If you are deemed to be a suitable candidate, the planning stage of your treatment commences using the 3D/CT scans to accurately pinpoint where in the jaw your implants are to be placed. Impressions are also taken of your mouth so that your new arch of teeth can be made and ready for attachment on the same day of your procedure.

2: Treatment Day: Each jaw takes around two hours for the All-on-4 treatment to conclude. Either local anaesthetic or conscious sedation is used to carry out the procedure. The treatment commences with the extraction of any remaining teeth. Then, the gum is opened at the four points where the implants are to be inserted into the jaw—two in the front and two in the back. A small hole is drilled into the jaw at these points, and the implants placed. Once the new crowns are attached, the procedure is complete.

3: Permanent Restoration: If you have had extractions (either on the day of treatment or less than three months’ before then) you will be fitted with a temporary, healing set of teeth. These are lighter than your permanent teeth, allowing the gums to heal after your extractions. This means you will need to return after three months to get your permanent teeth—and is something to bear in mind if you would like your permanent teeth fitted at the same time as your implants are inserted. If that’s the case, you can have your teeth extracted at home at least three months prior to your All-on-4 procedure.
