Replace all of your missing teeth with an All-on-4 in Malaysia. It’s an effective and far superior solution than dentures if you’ve lost all your teeth—and the prices in Malaysia are a snip when compared to what you’d pay at home. If you’re contemplating this procedure, book with Dental Departures for guaranteed best prices and quality-checked dentists.
Malaysia is one of the top tourist destinations in southeast Asia, in part, because of its tropical climate, cultural and scenic attractions. It also offers superior, yet affordable dental treatment at dental clinics that have English-speaking staff and is a good option for a dental tourism holiday in an exotic location.
The country’s climate provides a perfect backdrop for outdoor activities like a River Safari on the Kinabatangan River. Visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites, check out the Petronas Twin Towers in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, or relax on a typical beach holiday in Langkawi or Penang. Malaysia is fascinating and diverse and is perfect for a fantastic holiday while you are receiving your new teeth.
The All-on-4 is a dental implant treatment developed by Dr Paulo Malo from Portugal that simply uses four dental implants to replace all the teeth in the jaw (either upper or lower). The implants are, essentially, replacement tooth roots that become embedded into the jaw bone. They are placed at a 45-degree angle, rather than at 90-degrees that traditional implants are inserted. The rear implants are also longer, so these two differences increase the contact of bone-to-implant making for a stable and secure base on which to place a complete arch of teeth. This technique provides for a quicker treatment time than traditional dental implants as the whole procedure, including insertion of implants and attachment of teeth is carried out in one session. The treatment may also be suitable for patients with bone loss without having to undergo a bone graft procedure.
The treatment is a suitable alternative for patients who have lost all (or most) of their teeth in their jaw. If there are some remaining teeth these will need to be taken out, which can also be carried out at the same time as the rest of the procedure. However, it is worth noting that the arch of teeth placed after extractions will be temporary as it will be lighter than a permanent set of teeth to enable the tissues in the mouth to heal. If you don’t plan on making two trips to Malaysia, you can always have your teeth taken out at home at least 3 months’ prior to your trip to Malaysia for the All-on-4.
Going to Malaysia for All-on-4 dental implants restores your teeth, saves on cash and allows you to enjoy a holiday.

The dentists are trained locally and internationally, and you'll find many implant specialists are members of international professional organizations, like the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
