All on 4 in Almeria

The Ultimate Guide to All on 4 in Almeria

Last fact-checked: 18 February 2020

Value-for-money All-on-4®s in Almeria offers a real alternative to the unaffordable prices charged at home. Take a look at the options with Dental Departures’ quality-checked dentists in this stunning part of Spain and receive a new set of permanent teeth that look and function just like your old ones.

What Exactly Is an All-on-4?

An All-on-4 is a procedure that replaces a complete arch of teeth on just four dental implants. The procedure was pioneered by Portuguese implantologist Dr Paulo Malo —and his technique is now replicated across the world.

If you are already a wearer of dentures and either don’t really get on with them or feel you would like a more secure option, then an All-on-4 could be exactly what you are looking for.

How Does the Procedure Differ from Traditional Implants?

There are a number of differences in the All-on-4 implant procedure compared to traditional implants:

  1. The All-on-4 procedure replaces all of the teeth in one jaw, whereas traditional implants tend to replace one tooth (although they may be used in a bridge to replace several teeth).
  2. The All-on-4 procedure is completed in one day (teeth extractions, implant placement and crown attachment), unlike traditional implants which are carried out in two stages, generally three months apart.
  3. The rear implants used in the All-on-4 are longer than traditional implants and placed at a 45-degree angle rather than a 90-degree angle.
  4. The All-on-4 procedure may be suitable for patients with bone loss without the necessity of a bone graft.

The upshot of all this is that the All-on-4 procedure can actually work out to be a more convenient and amenable treatment than a traditional implant. It may also be a viable and beneficial treatment for patients who have bone loss in their jaw.

What Does the All-on-4 Treatment Entail?

The actual procedure takes around a couple of hours to complete per jaw. However, the treatment requires a high degree of accuracy and meticulous attention to detail both in the planning stages and while the surgery is carried out. The treatment entails:

1: Initial Consultation & Assessment: The dentist in Almeria can first provide an initial assessment as to your suitability for the procedure by examining up-to-date digital x-rays (you actually can email these over before getting on the plane). If you are deemed to be suitable, the dentist will undertake a thorough examination, consultation and assessment at your first appointment to ensure that everything is fine to proceed.

Appropriate diagnostic tests and scans, such as 3D/CT scans are taken, are used to give a detailed picture of the structures of your mouth and jaw, and also pinpoint the exact location for the placement of your implants. You will have impressions taken of your mouth that are sent to a laboratory where your new teeth will be made. These will be ready for your dentist to attach to your newly-fitted implants on the day of your procedure.

2: Treatment Day: The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic or sedation. Once your anaesthetic has taken effect, the dentist will first remove any remaining teeth in your jaw. After extraction, the sites will be cleaned and stitched (usually with dissolving stitches). Next, the dentist will open up the gum line at the most suitable points identified from the CT scans.

The procedure takes around two hours for each jaw. It may be performed under local anaesthetic or sedation. If you have remaining teeth, these will be extracted and the sites cleansed before the implants – two at the back and two in the front are placed. Your new permanent arch of teeth is placed immediately, or a lighter, temporary bridge if you’ve had extractions.

It is worth noting that after extractions, your gums and jaw bone will need time to heal—typically for a minimum of three months. So, if you have remaining teeth taken out during the All-on-4 procedure, you will be given a lighter, temporary set of teeth rather than permanent crowns. These will allow the tissues in your mouth to heal, but it does mean you will need to return to have your permanent teeth fitted at a later date. If this is going to be problematic, then it is worth having your remaining teeth extracted at home, several months before your appointment at the dentist in Almeria.

Why Should I Have All-on-4 implants in Almeria?

You’ll save money: All-on-4 prices in Almeria are 50% lower than they are at home. This represents an enormous saving. Even with the cost of accommodation and flights factored in, it is possible to save thousands.

Good quality: Spain's dentists are regulated and must be registered with the General Council of Colleges of Dentistry in Madrid. Specialist dentists undertake additional training to provide expertise in areas such as implantology.

Lots of competition among clinics: Dentists provide services on a private practice basis. Essentially, this means that dentists are in competition with each other for your custom, which is good news for patients. Competition keeps standards high and prices low because patients can easily take their custom elsewhere if they receive the care they are not happy with, or if reviews and recommendations about providers are not satisfactory.

Contemporary, high-tech clinics: The dental clinics throughout Spain that cater to international patients tend to be modern and equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, such as 3D/CT scanning, digital x-rays and CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture). In addition, the same world-renowned brands and materials are also available in dental clinics in Spain, so there is no need to worry that your treatment in Almeria will be substandard whatsoever.

Are All-on-4s a Good Procedure to Have in Almeria as a Dental Tourist?

Yes. Not only will you save significant money but you can also rely on quality care while enjoying a pleasant break in the sun. While the All-on-4 downtime is minimal , you may experience a little swelling and bruising after the surgery, so it’s always advisable to keep things relatively low-key afterward.

The good news is that Almeria is the perfect destination for your post-surgery recovery. You will discover impressive historic buildings in town to explore at a slow pace, lovely beaches and some fascinating desert terrains to check out, like the Sorbas Caves —a subterranean world of stalactites, stalagmites and gypsum crystals.
