Now it’s easier than ever to replace all your teeth with “teeth-in-a-day dental implants”—and if you head to Spain the cost is tens of thousands less than at home. Take a look at getting an All-on-4 in Marbella , the upmarket resort on the Costa del Sol, where the savings on your dental treatment will allow you to splash out on luxury accommodation and a well-deserved holiday.
All-on-4 is a dental implants procedure whereby a complete arch of teeth (upper or lower) is replaced on just four strategically placed dental implants.
Not everyone is suitable for All-on-4’s, so you will need a thorough consultation with an implantologist who has expertise of placing All-on-4’s. The dental implants need to be positioned in the jaw bone, which means you need enough viable bone there to hold the implant. For some patients who have advanced periodontal disease, bone loss may have occurred, making it difficult to place the implants. However, just because you some degree of bone loss doesn’t mean you aren’t suitable for All-on-4’s. This is because the posterior implants in the All-on-4 procedure are longer than traditional implants—placed at a 40-degree rather than 90-degree angle, providing greater stability.
Your dentist will take x-rays and CT scans to assess your jaws; if you are deemed suitable arrangements will be made for you to have the procedure.
The treatment is carried out in one session. That is, any remaining teeth are removed, the implants inserted and a temporary arch of teeth attached.
Implants are secure—no need to worry about them becoming loose or shifting.
Doesn’t require messy adhesives like dentures
Treatment usually involves only one surgery
Bone grafting is not usually required
They look, feel and act like your own teeth
The World Health Organization ranks private healthcare in Spain highly, and all dentists in Spain work privately. As dentists are in private practice they are in competition with each other, which is good news for patients as this means there is healthy competition, which keeps standards high and prices low.
As an EU member, Spain follows European-wide health and safety directives.
Dentists in Spain are well-trained and most clinics catering to international patients are high-tech, contemporary and equipped with the latest technologies, such as 3D/CT scanning.
Low-cost airlines offer daily flights from around the UK and Ireland to the Costa del Sol—so it’s easily accessible. You can often get a better deal on a return flight within the Continent than you can a train fare across Britain!

It is always wise to ask the question, rather than just choose a dentist randomly and with little thought or research. It’s true that while the standards of dentistry in Spain are generally good, we all know from experience that some people are just better at their jobs than others. Plus, it’s essential to know your clinic’s reputation and dentist’s qualifications, which is why Dental Departures lists this information on our website.
We run our own background checks, including legal/criminal records, confirmation of dentist certifications and professional qualifications. We also conduct onsite visits and publish patient reviews. You can check most of this information under each individual listing, as well as see maps, clinic photos and prices. This should make things clearer for you and help you to make an informed choice that’s right for you.

It is. Obviously, it’s a well-established tourist destination, so all the services and amenities you require as a visitor are available. By this we mean good ground transportation and accommodation options, shops and restaurants. Plus, of course, you will discover all the other cultural and aquatic attractions that make for a great holiday destination in a coastal resort.
Marbella is Spain’s glamour destination where the jet-set like to be seen on their luxury yachts around the Puerto Banus Marina. Dine out at Michelin-starred restaurants and hang-out at swanky cocktail bars. You don’t need to have a yacht to enjoy dining out and having a drink as the sun sets while you look out over the Marina, or the Med. In fact, there are plenty of enticing locations around town for some al-fresco eating and drinking, including the tree-lined nooks and crannies of the Old Town where you’re likely to stumble across a lovely little bijou restaurant.
If you want to go further afield, you can hire a car and take off into the mountains, or drive along the coast and see if you can find a secluded beach.
The good thing about getting your All-on-4’s as a dental tourist is that the procedure is over fairly quickly, and you shouldn’t have too many after-effects that will spoil your holiday. It’s the perfect scenario—save thousands on your dental care, get a new smile while relaxing and recovering in an exotic holiday setting.
