All-on-4 implants come as an option for edentulous patients or soon to become edentulous patients, who are looking for alternatives to regular dentures and want a more permanent, natural-looking and resisting solution.
The all-on-4 procedure is less invasive than regular dental implants since this only uses four points of contact per jaw; full arch replacement using this system is considerably cheaper and faster than with the use of regular implants.
As with most medical and dental procedures not everyone is a candidate for All-on-4, it is very important that the patient consults with the dentist and considers all available options.
In the United States a one day All-on-four procedure has a cost of between US$15,000.00 to US$24,000.00 depending on the materials used; which is why many patients prefer to look for dental clinics abroad that provide better prices and high quality levels. In Costa Rica the All-on-4 treatment in 1 day has a cost of between US$9,500.00 to $14,500.00 depending on the materials selected. The money you save in the dentist will pay for your traveling costs to this beautiful country and a much-deserved vacation.
If you have made up your mind and have chosen to travel to Costa Rica to get your All-on-4 treatment, consider the following advice to choose the best dentist for the procedure:
1) The All-on-4 procedure is relatively new, and therefore not all dentists have the necessary training and experience to carry out this treatment, it is important that you ask for your dentists background in this field, both in terms of education and preparation as well as experience.
2) Your dentist should give you a complete evaluation prior to recommending this treatment, and he/she has to provide you with all the available options and the pros and cons each of them entitle.
3) It is important that you get a detailed budget as well as complete information on what you should expect from this procedure. Inquire also about payment options.
4) Location, schedule and availability are always important, consider these factors when choosing a dentist for All-On-4 treatment in Costa Rica.
If you visiting a foreign country to undergo a dental treatment it is best to choose a dental clinic that can provide you with all the information necessary, the latest technology and materials and a safe and clean environment.
