Now that you know why you should choose Mexico for dental care, it’s time to learn more about the implants themselves. 

All-on-4 Dental Implants in Mexico: What Are They?

Structure of All on 4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 Implants in Mexico

All-on-4 is a full mouth restoration procedure in which four dental implants or artificial root screws support the full-arch prosthesis/denture.

  • It consists of 2 front implants and 2 rear implants. While the dentists place the front ones vertically, they tilt the rear ones for better support.
  • Teeth implants mimic your natural tooth roots. Along with the jawbone, they form a strong foundation for artificial teeth.
  • Unlike dentures, all-on-4 implants won’t wobble or shift in your mouth, allowing you to speak and eat comfortably.

A dentist will examine your mouth to confirm your need for all-on-four implants.

All-On-Four Treatment Concept in Dental Implants: A Review Articles
“This concept uses 2 vertical anterior implants in conjunction with 2 distally tilted inclined implants with their apices positioned anterior to the sinus wall or mental foramen (Figure 1). It involves the use of straight and angled multiunit abutments, which support a provisional, fixed, and immediately loaded, full arch prosthesis.”

Afterward, the procedure will continue as below. 

Stepwise Procedure of All-on-Four Treatments in Mexico

Depending on the case and individual preference, the implant procedure can take 1 to 3 visits.

Step 1: Evaluation and Treatment Plan

  • The dentist will examine your oral cavity. They will take pictures, CT scans, and X-rays to plan the treatment.
  • In addition, they will take note of your pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, allergies, etc.

Step 2: Preparation

  • The dentist will perform optional or pre-requisite procedures that may increase the success of implants.
  • Treatments such as scaling, RCT, and filling reduce the chance of infection.

Step 3: Implant Placement

  • Your dentist will give you local anesthesia or conscious sedation as required.
  • They will use a dental drill to make space for implants.
  • They will place the implants in the bone and fit an artificial teeth arch (acrylic prosthesis/ denture) on top once the implants are healed.
  • You can start using your new teeth for eating after the dentist places the denture.

Healing Period

The implants will take 6-9 months to heal (depending on your case).

During these months, the implants and the jawbone integrate, a process known as osseointegration.

For candidates with average biting force, the acrylic denture may be the last step of this procedure.

If you have a powerful biting force or chew hard food, you may need a porcelain denture.

Step 4: Porcelain/Permanent Denture (Optional)

  • After your bone has healed, you can schedule another appointment for a porcelain prosthesis/permanent denture.
  • Porcelain prosthesis/denture is sturdier and recommended if your biting forces are strong.

Long-Term Problems

Breaking or Loosening of Artificial Teeth

    What problems can occur after dental implant surgery?
    “some people grind, or brux, their teeth while sleeping. People who are prone to this behavior may need to wear a mouthguard to prevent damage to the implant as well as their natural teeth.”

  • Your dentist may prescribe an occlusal night guard to prevent fracture due to tooth grinding.

Infection in Gums & Implants

  • Poor oral hygiene can result in infection around implants.
  • You should consult your dentist immediately if you experience bad breath, pus, fever, inflammation, bleeding, or pain in the gums.
  • Your dentist may recommend implant curettage (cleaning around the implant) with antibiotic treatment.

Implant Failure

  • Dental implants have a high success rate, and implant failure is rare.
  • It may occur due to peri-implant infection or failed osseointegration.[9]Medical News Today
    What problems can occur after dental implant surgery?
    “Peri-implantitis is a type of gum disease that causes loss of the bone supporting the implant. If the implant fails to fuse with the bone, the dental surgeon may remove it. A person may be able to reattempt the implant procedure once the area has healed.”

How Can I Keep My Mouth Clean After the Implant Surgery?

Follow an oral hygiene routine strictly to avoid infections:

  • Rinse your mouth twice a day with a non-alcohol mouthwash.
  • Brush your mouth softly after every meal, making sure your gums don’t get hurt. Hard brushing can be damaging for implants.
