What are All on 4 Dental Implants?
All on 4 Dental Implants is a procedure that consists of the permanent restoration of multiple damaged or missing teeth (or full-arch rehabilitation) with dental implants made out of titanium.
So, if this is your case, know that it is still possible for you to enjoy food, smile, and speak with confidence again.
For this procedure, 4 dental implants are installed directly into the bone of the lower or upper arches; over time, they fuse with the bone and create a strong foundation for the artificial denture on top that will perform just like the natural ones.

What Are the Benefits of All on 4 Implants?

Permanent results: unlike traditional dentures, the all on 4 system will allow a comfortable permanent denture. Frequent visits to the dentist for fitting will not be necessary since your new teeth will be properly and securely attached to your mouth with implants. This also means that there will be no deterioration in your gums, something traditional dentures cause, and that is why they become uncomfortable over time.
Enhanced esthetic: once you get the treatment all on 4 done, you will enjoy a full set of natural-looking teeth that will last a long time, be comfortable and allow you to enjoy food and drinks like you used to, without worrying about your teeth shifting or slipping. You can regain self-confidence because you will not have to be concerned about going through situations of awkwardness that loose dentures could cause.
Prevention of bone degradation: when you have missing teeth, the jaw bone begins to degrade. With the all on 4 procedure, the implants inserted in the mouth imitate natural teeth’ roots. As a result, they minimize the effect of bone loss and encourage the retention of bone mass, strengthening the area simultaneously.
Easy to maintain: caring for these implants is quite simple; you just have to follow the usual oral hygiene habits we all know. Brush, floss, and rinse with mouth wash. And, make sure to attend your dental checkups.
Affordability: the cost of dental implants in Tijuana, Mexico, allows you to get all on 4 dental implants with high-quality results and save up to 70% of what it can potentially cost in your local dental office.

What Are the Types of Dental Crowns?
When getting dental crowns, what is important is the materials that go into their fabrication. You will find multiple options from gold to resin. However, you must choose the one that suits your specific condition better (with the help of your dentist). We will explain to you the types of high-quality crowns we currently have available in Tijuana:
PFM (Porcelain fused to metal): this type of dental crown is a great choice for from or back teeth. Your dentist can match it to your other teeth’ color to give them a more natural look. It has metal on the interior and porcelain on the outside, which is the visible part. These crowns can also be very effective with long bridges that need the support of metal.
Zirconia crown: this crown has its name after the ceramic-like material (zirconia), which is by far the best option for artificial tooth due to its strength, durability, and realistic aesthetics. It does not harm the human body and does not require too much tooth preparation as other materials do.
E-Max crown: this type of crown imitates the look of natural teeth as no other. The material that goes into it is lithium disilicate glass (a combination of different elements like quartz, potassium oxide, etc.), making them a very durable and resistant option. However, they are usually better for front teeth because of their usual thin application.
Gold crowns: usually, these crowns are best for back teeth since the aesthetics are very different from natural teeth. Besides gold, they also have a combination of copper and metals like chromium, which allows them to be very strong and therefore last for a long time. They also do not require too much part of your teeth to be removed for their installation.
Endosteal implants: they are placed straight into the jawbone through a surgical process. Made out of titanium, the most commonly used type of implant. Once placed, the gum tissue must heal in order to perform a second surgery and place a post that will eventually attach the artificial tooth to the implant.
Subperiosteal implants: These implants can also be recognized as “mini dental implants”, they are used on patients that do not have a healthy natural bone or do not want to undergo an invasive surgical procedure. They are placed under the gum but above the jawbone. Made out of titanium and smaller than endosteal implants.
How Is the Procedure of All on 4 Dental Implants?
You might often see that crowns take a few visits to the dental clinic. That is because some dental offices do not have the necessary equipment to fasten the process. Getting dental crowns in Tijuana (and to be more precise, in our dental office) will take only one visit. This is thanks to our Sirona innovative technology, which makes it possible for us to create your dental crowns the same day, saving you time and money at the same time
It is essential to acknowledge that replacing your teeth’ arches will ultimately require a lengthy healing process and multiple visits to your dentist. But it is worth having well-functioning teeth that will endure for a long time and improve your life.
First consultation and exams. To see if you are a good candidate for all on 4 implants, we will make an oral evaluation, take a 3D CT Scan, and check health history. If we conclude that this procedure is the right solution for you, we will make the necessary impressions of your jaws so our lab technicians can create a custom-made prosthetic dental bridge that will work as your new set of teeth. This is also where we will most likely discuss your treatment plan, reviewing the whole procedure, so you know what to expect. In case you are not a good candidate to get all on 4 implants, we will discuss other possible alternatives that can suit you
Extractions. Your dentist will remove any remaining teeth so the implants can go in. Usually, once these extractions are done, you will have to wait until your mouth heals so we can continue with the procedure. It is also important to know how are the bone levels on your jaw and make sure they will be able to support the implants. There is the possibility you might need a bone graft (bone filling) in order to give some bone strength to it
Implant surgery. Once your mouth is completely healed and ready to receive the implants, we can go ahead with the surgery. We will apply local anesthesia and begin to install the four implants. Once the implants are in, we will put a small cap on top, which will help with the gums’ healing. You might need to wait up to six months until they are completely healed
New smile. Finally, after your mouth has healed and your implants have firmly fused with your jaw, we will attach connectors (abutments) that will serve as a base for the dentures, and that is it. You can walk out of the dental office with new beautiful teeth that will, of course, need the same hygiene care that natural teeth do
Overall, it can take up to a year to complete the whole process, depending on how your own experience goes. Be sure, though, that we will be there to guide you the entire time, so you feel safe and assured
