Where Is Cebu?

The city is situated on Cebu Island, which is part of the vast Philippines archipelago. The rich culture, historical sites, and beautiful scenery attract tourists from around the globe. It’s also becoming increasingly popular with medical and dental tourists thanks to the low prices on offer coupled with high standards of care.

Flying here also gives dental tourists the chance to enjoy a tropical break in the sun, with plenty of beaches and islands to explore just off the coast

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

Dental implants are used as replacement tooth roots that are embedded into the jawbone to hold a crown or bridge.

The All-on-4® treatment concept, instead of replacing a single tooth (with a crown), restores an entire arch of teeth in the upper or lower jaw with just four implants. It’s a good option for edentulous (toothless) patients who have lost their teeth, a well as those with failing teeth. 

The procedure involves an initial consultation with your dentist where he’ll review and check your medical and dental health. Diagnostic tests like CT scans will be taken. After a careful evaluation, the dentist will be able to create a personalised treatment plan and discuss the details with you.

Implant Surgery:

  • The surgery, which is carried out in just one session under conscious sedation with a local anaesthetic, takes approximately two hours per jaw.
  • If you do have any teeth remaining, these will be removed to make way for the implants.
  • Then, the gums will be opened up at the four predetermined points so that a small hole can be made in the jaw bone for the implants to be placed.
  • Using abutments and coping cylinders, an immediate loading denture is attached immediately to complete the procedure.
  • After around six months, you will need to return to Cebu to have your final fixed bridge attached.

With proper care, the replacement teeth can last for many years. Your dentist will give you instructions on how to maintain your new teeth.

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

This implant treatment may eliminate the need for bone grafts, which saves you time and money. Aside from this, it provides you with the following benefits:

  • Restores your facial features
  • Prevents bone deterioration
  • Looks and feels like your natural teeth, with function increased to 90%
  • Can be brushed like your natural teeth (after the final restoration is completed)
  • Only requires one session of surgery
  • Avoids the need for high-maintenance dentures

How Will I Know Whether this Procedure Is Right for Me?

Your dentist in Cebu City will check whether this implant-based restoration is best for you. Upon arrival, you'll sit down for a consultation with a specialist so they can evaluate your condition. 

Our Customer Care Team can also help you send digital x-rays to the Philippines so that the dentist can make a preliminary assessment (before you fly). 

How Much Can I Save on this Treatment in Cebu City?

The cost of the All-on-4® treatment concept in Cebu City depends on a number of factors, such as whether multiple teeth need to be extracted, and whether you are having both arches of teeth treated (dual arch surgery).
