All on 4 in Singapore

The Ultimate Guide to All on 4 in Singapore

Last fact-checked: 5 April 2020

If you’re looking to transform your smile with an All-on-4® in Singapore, booking with Dental Departures guarantees that you’ll undergo this innovative procedure at a quality-checked clinic and potentially save money at the same time.

What Are All-on-4s?

The All-on-4 procedure is a full replacement for a complete arch of teeth secured onto just four dental implants. If you have lost most (or all) of your teeth, they are a much more secure and permanent alternative to dentures.

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

Cigarette Smokers: While being in good general health is an important factor for the All-on-4 procedure, being  a smoker is considered incompatible with dental implants. This is because cigarette smoking has a number of detrimental effects on the body, besides everything we know about its cancer-inducing properties. Cigarette smoke decreases blood blow in the mouth, which reduces the oxygen and nutrients that cells receive. This is particularly important for healing and fighting infection, which means that the placement of your dental implants could be severely compromised if you are smoking cigarettes, particularly just after surgery.

Bone Loss: Bone loss in the jaw makes it difficult, if not impossible, for traditional implants to be placed unless you undergo a bone graft procedure. However, bone loss will not necessarily preclude you from an All-on-4 procedure—and this is without having to undergo a bone graft. All-on-4’s are longer than traditional implants, and are placed at the rear of the mouth at a 45-degree, rather than a 90-degree angle. This creates a greater surface area for bone-to-implant contact, providing better stability.

What Is the Price of All-on-4s in Singapore?

It’s well-known that Singapore offers some of the world’s highest quality medical treatment. This applies to dentistry as well. While Singapore’s pricing is more expensive than other countries in the region, you will discover in Singapore unparalleled clinical care and patient experience.

Is an All-on-4 a Good Procedure to have in Singapore as a Dental Tourist?

Yes, most definitely. Almost all dental procedures can be undertaken without experiencing any difficulties as dental tourist, and the All-on-4 is no exception.

Other reasons to choose Singapore:

  1. The All-on-4 procedure was pioneered by Portuguese implantologist Dr. Paulo Malo and it is carried out to his exact protocol across the world with a high success rate. There is no need to worry that your All-on-4 treatment in Singapore won’t be carried out to the same high-standard specifications by a dentist in Singapore.
  1. The best dental Clinics in Singapore are ultra-modern, with up-to-date technologies, including 3D/CT scanning and CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture) to carry out while-you-wait prosthodontics (eg. crowns, veneers)—a bonus for international visitors who may be pressed for time.
  1. Although the All-on-4 is a major procedure, many people experience little in the way of after-effects—at least not enough to stop them from enjoying life in the Lion City. While you may experience some swelling or bruising post-treatment, there is no reason why you can’t get back to making the most of your time in Singapore and seeing all there is to see. You should take things a lot easier than you normally would, particularly if you are feeling tired (fortunately, Singapore is effortless to get around, either on the modern MRT system or in affordable taxis.)

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

Dental Departures only works with clinics that we have full confidence in. Before we partner with any of our dental clinics, we carry out a number of background checks. These include searching legal/criminal records, performing onsite visits, verifying doctor qualifications and confirming professional memberships.

We also collect real patient reviews, which are published on our website, with clinic photos, prices, location maps and more—giving you everything you need to make an informed decision on what dental facility is right for you.

Three highly-rated clinics in Singapore that carry out All-on-4s include:

Pure NZ Dental

Specialist Dental Group Mount Elizabeth Orchard

Specialist Dental Group Gleneagles Hospital

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

An All-on-4 is a surprisingly quick procedure, carried out in one day—and that includes remaining teeth extractions, implant placement and attachment of new teeth. However, meticulous planning is key to this procedure’s success, and so you will probably need to be in Singapore a few days before your procedure. Prior to your appoinment, your dentist will let you know more details.

The treatment is broken down into:

1: Initial Consultation & Assessment: Your dentist in Singapore will have already checked your digital x-rays that are emailed in order to make a preliminary assessment as to whether your jaw bone is able to hold the implants. However, once you arrive in Singapore, the dentist will need to do a thorough examination of your mouth and organise tests, such as 3D/CT scans, which are used to give the dentist a good look at the structures in your mouth, and to pinpoint the exact place where the implants will be inserted.

You will also need to have impressions of your mouth taken; these are sent to an external laboratory where your new replacement teeth will be made. These will need to be with your dentist on the date of your procedure so that they can be fitted once your implants have been placed.

2: Treatment Day: It typically takes around two hours per jaw for the All-on-4 procedure. Local anaesthetic or conscious sedation is administered and any remaining teeth are extracted before the gum is opened up at the four points your dentist identified from the CT scans. The dentist then makes small holes in the jaw at these points and places the implants. The gum is stitched back up and the new teeth are attached.

3: Permanent Restoration: If you have had teeth extractions within three months of the All-on-4, you will be given a temporary set of teeth. These are lighter than the permanent ones, allowing the soft tissues in your mouth time to heal. You will return in three months to receive your permanent teeth. However, if this is likely to be an issue, you could always have your teeth extracted by a dentist at home three months (or longer) before you travel to Singapore.
