All on 4 in Dubai

The Ultimate Guide to All on 4 in Dubai

Last fact-checked: 18 December 2019

Replace missing teeth with an All-on-4® in Dubai . A luxury destination for travellers who loves those little extras, Dental Departures can help you to discover top-quality dentists for all your needs in a prime Middle Eastern location.

What Is An All-on-4?

An All-on-4 is a dental implant procedure that replaces all of your teeth on just four implants, hence the name... This can include the top row of teeth, the bottom or both.

Regular dental implants take the place of a tooth root. They are placed into the jaw, where over a period of a few months they integrate with the jaw bone to form a strong and stable base on which to attach a false tooth.

The All-on-4 procedure uses this innovation, but by using four implants placed in strategic points along the jaw, a complete arch of teeth can be fitted instead of just individual false teeth. The arch is secure, natural-looking and acts exactly like your own teeth—with no fear of it slipping or falling out, like dentures.

Pioneered by world-renowned implantologist, Dr Paulo Malo, from Lisbon , Portugal, the technique is now taught around the world following his exact protocol.

Am I A Suitable Candidate for an All-on-4?

The All-on-4 procedure is suitable for many patients—even those who’ve suffered bone loss in their jaw and been that they aren’t good candidates for traditional dental implants. Bone loss is usually caused by periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease . If gum disease is not treated, it progresses from the gums and soft tissues of the mouth to the jaw bone, eroding all the supporting structures around the tooth, which eventually leads to loss of the tooth.

For traditional dental implants, bone loss often means that dental implants aren’t a viable option (unless a prior, successful bone graft procedure is performed first). As well as having to have an additional procedure, this also means that the implant procedure cannot be finalised until the bone graft has been given sufficient time to heal, which could be up to a year.

Due to the specific positioning of the implants in an All-on-4, plus the fact that the rear implants are longer than traditional ones, the All-on-4 is may be suitable for patients with bone loss. If you send up-to-date scans/x-rays to the dentist in Dubai, you will be able to get a preliminary assessment as to your suitability.

Other factors regarding your suitability to the All-on-4 are that you must be in good general health and don’t smoke. Smoking is bad for dental implants because it hinders blood flow to the mouth, reducing essential nutrients and oxygen needed for healing and fighting infection, which ultimately could lead to your implants failing.

Why Should I Have an All-on-4 in Dubai as a Dental Tourist?

● Private dental facilities in Dubai are, as you would expect, excellent. They are modern with contemporary décor and are equipped with the latest diagnostic and therapeutic technologies, such as 3D/CT scanning, digital x-rays and the latest innovations, such as CAD/CAM dentistry that allows the clinic to design and manufacture prosthodontics (eg, crowns and veneers) on-site, while you wait.

● Dentists in Dubai are well-trained, with many having trained abroad in the US and Europe. There are also many international dentists working in the emirate, attracted by the lifestyle and low-tax or even tax-free salaries. As you would imagine, it is highly competitive, and so only the crème de la crème practice in Dubai. The All-on-4 procedure has a high success rate , and is carried out by expert implantologists as per the Malo protocol.

● Although the All-on-4 is considered a major procedure, many patients experience little in the way of pain or discomfort after their surgery. You may experience some swelling and slight bruising, but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t feel well enough to carry out everyday, low-key activities after a day or two. Be kind to yourself and don’t wear yourself out too much, as your body needs time and energy to heal.

● Dubai has more than enough in the way of gentle attractions and pastimes for a relaxing stay (heading up to the observation deck of the iconic Burj Khalifa tower being one of them).

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

Although the actual All-on-4 surgery is carried out in one session, you will generally need to be in Dubai for around three weeks. The All-on-4 does need meticulous planning, which may take a number of visits to the dentist before the day of your procedure. The treatment plan is summarised as follows:

1: Initial Consultation & Assessment

When you arrive in Dubai, you will visit your dentist for a thorough consultation and detailed assessments of your dental health, mouth and jaws. The dentist will want to know your medical history and carry out appropriate diagnostic tests and scans of your mouth. If all is fine and you are deemed a suitable candidate for the All-on-4, impressions of your mouth will also need to be taken, which will be sent to a laboratory where your new teeth are made. These will obviously need to be ready and available for your dentist to fit on the day of your surgery.

2: Treatment Day

The All-on-4 procedure generally takes around two hours per jaw and is carried out under local anaesthetic or conscious sedation.

[Note: The All-on-4 procedure is only carried out on edentulous (no teeth) patients. Thus, if you do have some teeth, they will need to be removed. This can be carried out by your dentist in Dubai, at the same time as the All-on-4. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that you will only be given temporary teeth following extractions, as the tissues in your mouth will need time to heal afterward. Furthermore, as the tissues heal, they often shrink, which means your teeth wouldn’t fit.

The upshot here is that you will need to return to Dubai 3 months after extractions to have your permanent teeth fitted. If this is going to be a problem, then you can always have your teeth extracted by a dentist at home, at least three months before you travel to Dubai. This will normally save you money when considering those airfares and travel expenses.]

On your treatment day, once your dentist has removed any remaining teeth, the next step for the All-n-4 is to open up the gum at the points where the implants are to be placed. This gives the dentist access to the jaw bone in which a small hole is made for the implants to be placed. To complete the procedure, the gum is stitched back in place and the new teeth are attached securely to the implants.
