Visiting Guadalajara as a Dental Tourist

Guadalajara packs in a lot to see and do for tourists; while the city certainly has a historic façade, this belies the fact that it is very much a modern city with all 21st-century amenities and services available.

Top activities include:

  • Exploring the city by walking or riding in a bus, subway, taxi, or calandria (horse-drawn carriage).
  • Roaming around the area and seeing various plazas, colonial architecture, and other interesting places.
  • Shopping for cheap items from Tianguis (street markets) or branded goods from big shopping malls.
  • Trying local specialties like birria, tortas ahogadas, or chilaquiles. 

Several accommodation options are available including budget, mid-range to high-end hotels.

What Is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a procedure that replaces all the upper or lower teeth with four implants.

The implants are usually made from titanium that has the ability to fuse to the bone. This healing process is called osseointegration. During this time, patients are advised to only eat soft and semi-solid foods, as a lighter "immediate denture" will be worn so as to protect the newly-implanted implants and gums. 

The posterior implants are placed at an angle, which increases bone-to-implant contact. It’s great for people who lost their precious teeth due to gum problems, injury or other reasons.

What Are the advantages of the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?

The All-on-4® treatment concept has many benefits, such as improving patients' quality of life, with a shorter treatment time (compared to other implant procedures).

Because this procedure uses a unique technique, a bone graft is not always necessary.

The technique differs in that:

  • The implants placed in the rear of the jaw are longer than most other implants
  • The rear implants are inserted at a 45-degree angle, rather than the 90-degree angle at which traditional implants are placed.

This increases the stability of the implants while creating a larger surface area for bone-to-implant contact, which also enhances stability.

Am I a Good Candidate for this Treatment?

Your dentist will determine if this procedure is suitable for you. Sit down for a consultation with your specialist and undergo a complete examination. Diagnostic tests, like cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) will be taken.

The dentist will evaluate your dental health as well as your medical condition and recommend where this is the best option for you.

How Much Can I Save on the All-on-4® Treatment Concept in Guadalajara?
