Last fact-checked: 4 February 2021

Replace your missing teeth with the All-on-4® treatment concept in Vietnam to improve your smile, talk, and eat confidently once again - without restoring to dentures. 

Our verified clinics in Vietnam have experts in this full-mouth restoration technique, which is provided exclusively by Nobel Biocare®

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

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a tooth replacement treatment that uses four implants per jaw to support an entire arch (fixed bridge) or teeth. 

It was the brainchild of Dr. Paulo Malo, a renowned implantologist from Lisbon, Portugal who developed this innovative technique, with over 150,000 patients having been successfully treated worldwide

While the All-on-4® treatment concept is still a specialist procedure, this treatment is now widely available—including in Southeast Asian countries, like Vietnam.

What Is the Process Involved in the Treatment?

The procedure involves consultation/treatment planning, insertion of implants, and placement of replacement teeth (bridge). During the consultation and treatment planning, the dentist will conduct a complete examination; review your medical and dental condition.

Once it is determined that this is a good option for you, any remaining teeth are extracted before the implants are surgically placed in the jawbone. Then, temporary replacement teeth are attached to the implants while waiting for the gums to heal and the implants to fuse with the bone (osseointegration).

After the healing process, which is around six months, the temporary teeth will be replaced with permanent ones upon a return visit to the dentist in Vietnam.

Your dentist will give you instructions on how to take care of your “new teeth.” Continue with your daily oral hygiene – brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash and don’t forget to get dental check-ups.

What Are the Advantages of this Dental Restoration?

If you have previously been informed that you are not a suitable candidate for dental implants, don’t despair: the All-on-4® treatment concept may still be a viable option without the need for a bone graft to augment the jaw bone.

This is thanks to the unique length and placement of the implants.

There is also evidence that dental implants are beneficial to patients with bone loss because they stimulate the jaw bone in the same way as a normal tooth root would.

How Much Is the Cost of the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?

The cost of the procedure depends on the type of material used and expertise of the dental practitioner.

On average, treatment costs around USD $7,800 (CAD $9,974.41; AUD $10,407.38; NZD $11,267.88; UK £5,377.40), which is around two-thirds less than average prices in the US. 

[Please note that these are estimated prices at the time of writing. See our individual clinic listings for latest prices.]

Why Should I Consider Treatment in Vietnam?

Clinics in Vietnam offer a comfortable and clean environment for patients. Dentists are well-trained with many specialists likely to be members of esteemed national organizations, such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI).

Obviously the cost is a major bonus, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a holiday and visit some of Vietnam’s attractions, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Ha Long Bay in Northern Vietnam, the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long in Hanoi, The Complex Hue of Monuments, and Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.
