Can’t afford All-on-4® dental implants? All-on-4s in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico cost 50% less than prices at home and could be the solution you need to get the smile you deserve.
Combining dental treatment with a fantastic vacation is an option many are choosing— the subtropical weather makes Puerto Vallarta an ideal place to recuperate after your All-on-4 and enjoy its laidback, artsy vibe which has long been a draw since Liz Taylor and Richard Burton made a film here in the 1960s.
The All-on-4 is a dental implant treatment that replaces all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw bone on just four dental implants. For patients who have lost most or all of their teeth, it is a fixed solution that, unlike dentures, won’t embarrass you by slipping or falling out. The teeth look and act very much like your own and you’ll be able to bite, chew and eat any food you like with complete confidence.
Developed by world-renowned implantologist, Dr. Paulo Malo, this procedure is now carried out across the world with a very high success rate.
• You will need to have lost most of your teeth or be prepared to have any remaining teeth extracted.• Many people who are unsuitable for traditional dental implants are potential candidates for an All-on-4 treatment, without the prior need of a bone graft procedure.
The process involves an examination, treatment planning, and placement of the implants. During consultation and examination, your dentist will review your medical and dental health status. This includes a comprehensive examination of your teeth, mouth, and jaw. Diagnostic tests like Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) will be taken. After careful evaluation, a customized treatment plan is drawn up. Then, the implants will be placed at an angle with new teeth attached. To maintain your newly restored teeth, continue with your daily oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash.
There are many advantages to All-on-4s over other tooth replacement options:
• Stable and natural-looking.• The procedure is carried out in just one session (extractions, implant placement and attachment of teeth).• Bone graft not usually necessary.• Improves your appearance.• Implants help preserve the jawbone and prevent further deterioration.

Yes. The procedure takes around two hours per jaw to complete (if there are no extraction), and most patients experience little downtime, although you may have swelling and bruising afterward. There is extensive planning before the treatment with diagnostic tests, and impressions are taken of your mouth which will be sent to a laboratory where your new teeth are made. These will be available on the day of your All-on-4 procedure so your dentist can place them immediately after your implants have been inserted.
