All-on-4s (Non-Removeable) Permanent Dentures
TheÂ true All-on-4 dental implants procedure is actually a brand of permanent implant dentures developed by Nobel BioCare™ using four implants and a fixed denture called a hybrid. Our dental offices in Mexico only use true Nobel BioCare™ All-on-4 implant denture parts and material â€“ the same product imported from Switzerland. With All-on-4 dental implants in Mexico are customers can take advantage of the best prices without sacrificing quality in their permanent dentures.
To fully understand this remarkable technique for replacing teeth, you should first understand a dental implant. An implant is a small titanium screw that fits inside your jawbone and replaces the root section of a missing tooth. Minor surgery is required to insert the All-on-4 dental implants. Once the implant is in place, a crown is attached to give you a highly realistic-looking and functional prosthetic tooth.
Hereâ€™s where it gets fascinating â€“ you do not need a dental implant for every one of your missing teeth. All you need is four precisely placed implants on the top of your mouth and four on the bottom to restore your full smile. Thatâ€™s the beauty of the all-on-four. And because the implant is made of titanium, it has the unique ability to fuse to living bone and function as part of it. So eventually, the dental implant becomes part of the jawbone and serves as a strong, long-lasting foundation for your new teeth.
Besides ensuring that your All-on-4 dental implants are permanently fixed in place, this bone fusion has another important benefit â€“ it prevents future bone loss in the jaw. This helps to maintain a more youthful facial structure and better oral health. But perhaps the biggest surprise about the All-on-4 system is how quickly it can transform your life.
IMPORTANT: Problems with the All-on-4 procedure can be caused by an inexperienced provider. Properly placed implants are essential for a successful, long-term All-on-4 restoration. Be sure the doctor placing your implants has the skill and knowledge to ensure lasting benefits â€“ not just anyone can do this procedure and have the best outcome. If you’re considering getting All-on-4 or All-on-6’s, we recommend you read this blog,Â Important Considerations for Getting All-on-4 Permanent Dentures.
Does Beyond Borders Dental do “Same Day” Implant Dentures?
Yes and no. Thereâ€™s a popular trend to gain your business by advertising same-day teeth replacement with implant dentures.
However, same-day teeth are a half-truth because you will leave after surgery with temporary dentures. You can expect follow-up appointments to achieve a permanent denture. Our dental offices are focused on quality and long-term success. They do not take shortcuts or use misleading marketing ads. If any office assures you are receiving your permanent denture as a “one time only” visit, know this is a huge red flag.
Here’s an Example of Misleading Small Print to Look for:
“On the day of surgery, you will have your implants placed and a new set of permanent teeth placed. However, these are known as temporary teeth even though they look and feel great. This is because they will be replaced in a few months when the bone around the implant has properly healed. This is what is known as â€˜Teeth in 1 Dayâ€™. You can leave the surgery on the day of your implants with a perfect set of teeth.”

Is it Necessary for me to Visit my Dentist Before Scheduling an All-on-4 treatment with One of Your Vetted Dental Offices?
Dental Work in Mexico. Our offices are fully equipped with high-tech X-ray machines, CT scanners, and the latest equipment in the dental industry. Any evaluation and procedure can be done onsite. However, for invasive procedures such as the All-on-4, our dentists require patients to get a dental Cone-beam computed tomography system (CBCT) within three months before scheduling an appointment or taking it in their office. Itâ€™s important to get the whole picture and an accurate cost estimate.
This is a sophisticated scan that shows much more than a typical X-ray and can not only determine if you are a good candidate for All-on-4 implant dentures, but it will give our provider much of the information needed to plan your All-on-4 treatment in Mexico. Therefore, itâ€™s important to get the whole.
For the best results, the All-on-4 procedure requires a comprehensive evaluation by their Implantologist so they can plan and be well prepared in advance. Even if they discover something in the in-office exam, they’ll be ready for any unforeseen contingencies. We feel strongly that you should be well-informed, have all your questions answered, and know what to expect before you travel. Our implant dental offices have all the technology needed for a full consultation, including the necessary CT scan X-ray to analyze your bone for implant placement.
What are the Steps Involved and Schedule to Get the All-on-4 Procedure?
For most patients, going to our Playa del Carmen dental office requires two visits; for the first visit, we recommend no less than 5 days but recommend 7 days. For the second visit, we recommend 3 to 5 days. This allows ample time for adjustments if needed.
- On the first day of your appointment, the doctor does a comprehensive evaluation, including X-rays, a CT scan, impressions, and a treatment plan.
- On the next day, the doctor starts. It may involve removing any remaining teeth and surgically placing the All-on-4 dental implants.
- On the following day or two, the doctor will place a temporary set of dentures. This will allow you to eat and speak during the healing phase while the implants fuse to your jawbone. The fusion process generally takes three to six months. After a final check on your progress, you can return home.
- After three to six months, the All-for-4 dental implants should have healed and are securely fused to your jawbone. You must return so the doctor can place your permanent set of customized prosthetic teeth, restoring your smile to its full radiance.
