Replace your missing teeth and save a fortune with All-on-4 treatment in Los Algodones, Mexico. This small Mexican town also known as Molar City is a popular tourist destination and known for inexpensive shopping, restaurants and low-priced dental care.
The growth of pharmacies, opticians, and dental clinics started in the 1980s. From then on, the dental clinics boomed. Today, tourists from Canada, USA and other places visit Los Algodones Molar City for dental treatments - its warm and dry climate attracting many snowbirds from the north looking for some winter sun.
The technique was developed by world-renowned implantologist Dr Paulo Malo. It replaces all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw on just four dental implants. The implants are placed strategically with the rear to at a 45-degree angle, rather than the traditional 90-degree angle. This provides a larger surface area for the bone to integrate with the implant, as well as increased stability. A bridge of false teeth is then attached. What is special about the All-on-4 is that teeth may be extracted, implants placed and new teeth attached all in one procedure. So, there is no need for multiple trips, unlike with traditional single dental implants.
Simply keep up with your daily oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash. See your dentist for a checkup and regular teeth cleaning.
All-on-4 provides many advantages:
They improve the patient’s quality life; talk, smile, and eat confidently without worrying about your teeth and facial appearance; the treatment may eliminate the need for a bone graft procedure, saving time and money and they can help to prevent further bone loss.
The dentist in Algodones will assess if an All-on-4 is best for you. A comprehensive examination will be taken. This includes a review of your medical and dental health condition and tests like cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). After the assessment, the dentist will confirm if this is the best option for you.
In case you have a dental phobia, don’t worry because the clinics offer sedation dentistry, which makes you relaxed during treatment. Feel free to discuss this to your dentist.
