 Why Medical Tourism for All-on-4 Implants?

Some of the reasons you might want to consider medical tourism for all-on-4 dental implants are:

High Costs

The cost of dental care in the USA has skyrocketed in the past few years. According to the Federal Reserve Board’s Report on the Well-Being of U.S. Households (2014), nearly 25% of the people reported inability to afford dental treatments due to its price.1

Long Waiting Times

Sometimes, long waiting time adds further to one’s dental woes. Therefore, visiting a dental clinic abroad can seem to be a good choice. According to a 2017 report by Carmen Chai, nearly 56% Canadians reported a wait time of more than four weeks to see a specialist or a doctor.2

Unavailability of Required Care in Home Country

Lack of advanced medical facilities and poor infrastructure in native place may drive some people out of the country looking for dental services.

Many countries such as Mexico, Costa Rica, India and Thailand are fast emerging as leading medical tourism centers which welcome patients from overseas. World-class clinics, quality care at par with western standards, and experienced and well trained doctors and staff make these countries an appropriate choice for dental procedures.

Things to Consider Before an All-on-Four Fixed Implants

The all-on-four solution is ideal for individuals whose gums cannot support a traditional set of dentures. Before a dentist advises the surgery, the following cases have to be ruled out:

  • Bruxism or teeth clenching
  • Gum disease or periodontal disease

Once all these factors are ruled out, the dentist gives a go-ahead for the surgery.

What are All-on-Four Dental Implants?

A study by Hong DGK and colleagues (2017) states the all-on-4 concept “rehabilitates the complete edentulism using four implants.4

  • It is a dental implant solution that replaces missing or decayed teeth with a new non-removable set of teeth. This technique enables total rehabilitation (of the entire arch) for the edentulous individuals.
  • An acrylic or a metal overdenture is suitably placed on dental implants.
  • For anyone who finds dentures too troublesome or wants to replace missing teeth, an all-on-four fixed dental implant surgery may suit them as it is safe and has successful clinical results. The entire procedure takes anywhere between 9-12 months.

Fixed Dental Implants Procedure

The following steps are involved in all-on-4 implants surgery:

  • Teeth extraction (if required)
  • Titanium metal post placement
  • A healing period of 2-4 months
  • Fabrication and fitting of abutments and overdentures on implants
Did You Know?
