Good news if you're in the market for a new set of teeth: with a trip to Malaysia, you can receive affordable All-on-4®s in Kuala Lumpur, enjoy a memorable holiday and head back home still having saved thousands on the cost of this specialist procedure.
Aside from business trips, the majority of international visitors fly to Kuala Lumpur to see its impressive attractions (both old and new), as well as indulge in cheap and varied shopping, exotic food and an exciting nightlife.
The country is home to the world’s tallest twin structures – the Petronas Towers and the world’s biggest covered bird park – the KL Bird Park. Tourists can also check out thousands of marine creatures in Aquaria KLCC. Shoppers will find branded items in Bukit Bintang District. For the food lovers, satisfy your cravings in Chinatown or choose from restaurants in Jalan Alor. Drive for less than an hour from KL and get adventurous at Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, Malaysia’s premier theme park. Food, commodities, and accommodations are reasonably priced which delights many tourists and Malaysia is also renowned for its biodiversity, which offers further appeal to visitors.
Over the last few years, however, the Malaysian capital has started to welcome people coming for an alternative reason: to obtain affordable, high-quality dental care.
An implant is an artificial tooth root that is embedded into the jawbone to hold a crown or a bridge. The All-on-4 implant treatment, as the name suggests, replaces all of the upper or lower teeth with just four implants. It’s an option for edentulous (toothless) patients who are looking for sturdy and natural-looking replacement teeth.
The procedure involves an examination, treatment planning and placement of implants. Diagnostic tests, like Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), are taken. After a thorough evaluation, the implantologist will create a treatment plan. Based on the plan, the implants will be inserted into the jawbone followed by the placement of temporary crowns. After the healing process (known technically as osseointegration - where the implants fuse with the bone), the permanent teeth will be attached to the implants. The length of treatment depends on a case-to-case basis, as the healing period for different patients can vary dramatically.
All-on-4 dental implants improve your appearance, eating habits and oral health. The procedure preserves the jawbone and prevents the deterioration of the facial structures associated with the loss of teeth. The replacement teeth allow you to eat anything you want because they are fixed to a sturdy foundation. With routine brushing and flossing, these innovative implants can improve your overall oral health and help reduce the risk of gum disease.
Kuala Lumpur dentists offer premium All-on-4 implants at a low price. With the use of state-of-the-art technology, dentists design and create replacement teeth. They use top-quality materials and, in order to deliver exceptional service, they adhere to international safety standards and comply with the requirements of the Malaysian Dental Association and Malaysian Dental Council.
All of our listed dentists in Kuala Lumpur have completed local and international courses, keeping abreast of currents trends in dentistry by pursuing additional training.
The price of All-on-4s in KL depends on certain factors, particularly the type of material used. All-on-4 treatment here starts at USD $5,482.25 (CAD $7,215.68; AUS $7,258.22; NZD $8,071.51; UK £3,884.72).
When compared to prices in Australia, New Zealand, Canada or the UK, that can equate to four-figure savings, even when factoring in the price of accommodation, flights and other travel expenses.
