This dental implant procedure, as the name suggests, replaces all your upper or lower teeth with just four implants, with a custom-made prosthesis (fixed bridge) loaded on.
It’s a popular treatment option for edentulous (toothless) patients who lost their precious teeth due to gum disease, injury, or other reasons, as well as those with failing teeth.
The All-on-4® treatment concept was pioneered by Dr. Paulo Malo, a renowned implantologist from Lisbon in Portugal, and the procedure is now carried out throughout the world.
This procedure provides many advantages:
The immediate set of teeth loaded onto the implants are lighter, and designed to be replaced at a later stage. You will be given instructions on how to care for this and your implants; for instance, no brushing for the two weeks immediately following surgery (mouthwash only), and you'll need to stick to a diet of soft and semi-soft foods for around four months before the final fixed bridge is attached.
After that, just keep up with your daily oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash. Remember to get regular checkups and professional teeth cleaning.
The dentist in the Philippines will check if you’re a good candidate for this treatment and a comprehensive examination will be undertaken. This involves a review of your medical and oral health, including diagnostic tests like cone beam computed tomography or CBCT.
We can also help you email your digital x-rays (taken at home) to the specialist in the Philippines before you go, allowing you to get a preliminary assessment as to your suitability.
In order to give the best patient care, clinics in the Philippines utilize state-of-the-art technology and advanced treatments. As members of organizations like the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and even the American Dental Association, our listed dentists comply with the same industry standards as those in the US, Australia and Europe.
Feel free to ask questions and discuss your concerns as a personalized treatment plan can be created to suit your needs and budget.
The cost of the treatment depends on the materials used, the specialisation of the dentist, and other factors, such as whether multiple teeth need to be extracted during surgery (making way for the implants).
Price for the All-on-4® treatment concept in the Philippines start at around USD $8,308 (CAD $10,905; AUD $11,121; NZD $11,877; UK £6,259; EUROS 7,200), compared to $26,000 (CAD $34,300; AUD $34,300; NZD $36,300; UK £20,000; EUROS 23,200) in the US.
