Hi, I’m Doctor Arzate in sunny Cancun and I have a special visitor.

Seven days ago you came in and had a story, because even she is young she told me I want to make a big change in just of couple of days. Just started to do for some reasons, search about a change, like a quick change for your mouth and what did you found?

I found you guys. And I knew right away I wanted to come here.

Did you went to consult to different doctors, back home or something? No? You said I need to go

I knew in my heart that I needed to come here.

Thank you. We receive patients for more all over the world which they came here and they come looking for some solutions for this type of cases. Our personal suggestion was not why not braces? Why not fixing your teeth, your mouth and it was no.

No.

Braces was not an option. Ok, so it was complex because we have an underbite, we have underbite and how many years have you been like that?

Oh my god! It’s been since I was 12 or 11

That’s was a problem for your life? For your way of live? Smiling, and eating.

Yes, I never smiled.

You never smile? She requested for this prompt solution and I told her, well we can do this. We have a big decay under— with all the teeth uppers and lowers but we were more focus in your upper maxilla and we wanted to do something that can give a good layout.

We did a process called All-on-4.  That’s what I did. The All-on-4. This was her seven days ago, we have an open bite and underbite and we have the canines here.

This was the X-ray that we had, we had all the molars, touch, we had infections here, we had a couple of things. We had those canines which they were impacted there on uppers and without wanted to have braces and this is the result.

I placed two big implants. Here. We respected the sinus. We did extractions in all the uppers and we did a makeover on lowers and get rid of those infections that she had here and we did a screw retained bar—- here on this patient and at the end that was the result.

This is a beautiful case of All-on-4 and the result was amazing.

Ok, so thank you for trust, thank you for coming  and I wanna see her in one year, so she can come here for any adjustments but now you are ready for smile.

I’m ready

Ready for social media!

Ok

Thank you, Elexis.  Thank you so much, now you are part of the family.

Yes.

Thanks for watching, I’m Dr. Arzate, thanks for give us your likes in our social media and here we are in sunny Cancun.

 

Dr. Arzate, Diplomate of the ABOI, American Board of Oral Implantology. Bye!

Taking the first step for your All-on-4 in Cancun

We get a lot of patients asking how can they know if they are candidates for All-on-4 dental implants, so we are compelled to make a helpful explanation for you. The process to define if you are a good candidate for a full mouth restoration with Nobel Biocare All on 4 starts by sending us pictures of your smile and any mouth x-ray you may have. Our doctors need to analyze the x-ray to tell if there is enough bone in the area under your nose, which is the place where the All-on-4 dental implants are set.

Most people have enough bone present to go ahead with the procedure. It’s important that you remember our Doctors are doing a pre-evaluation with these photos to give you a good idea if you are a candidate, but the final clinical evaluation (face-to-face) is essential to confirm this. CT-scans can also help a lot to come up with a good diagnosis.

In the case of photos of your mouth, we will need at least 5 photos. First, we need a photo of your smile from the front; smile naturally so we can see how your teeth look everyday. We also need profile photos from each side. Finally we also require an inner upper and inner lower view of your teeth.  You might want to ask for someone’s help on taking these pictures to make sure they look good and clear.

This will also help us see if you might be candidate for some other dental procedure, like snap in dentures. We will get in touch with you as soon as our doctors have an answer and suggestions for you. If you want to know more about how to take photos for your All-on-4 Dental Implants pre-evaluation call toll free at 1-800-701-6039 to speak with one of our dental planners who will give you further instructions.

What do you need to get an All-on-4 dental implant treatment?

There are a few things you need to be very clear when looking for a dental implant treatment in the level of All-on-4. Here we will give you a run down of the most important factor to look at for when searching for the best all on 4 treatment option. It doesn’t matter if you are from USA, Canada or any other part of the world; you must take this points at heart to ensure the highest chance of success of your dental implant treatment.

 

  • Implants: One of the main things to bear in mind is the fact that sometimes low ethic dental practitioners will give you a treatment called “All-on-4”, but they are not really. The implants for All on 4 treatment must be specially tilted. Ask the dentist to send you photos of the implants they use for All on 4.  Remember that the two implants on the sides need to be tilted no matter what, otherwise you will not get the required anchoring to keep things in place.  There is absolutely no question about any of it. Before you agree to doing the treatment, ask for confirmation that the dentists you have chosen are using the right implants. Some dentists try to cut edges with regular implants so be careful!
  • Experience: The dentist performing your All-on-4 procedure must be experts in implant dentistry and have years of experience, as well as thousands of dental implants set in their record.  For instance, Doctor German Arzate has twenty years of experience using all types of dental implants for complete smile makeovers and has trained with the creators of this technique.
  • Qualifications: Any dental professional seeking to perform this All-on-4 protocol should have all their certifications. Doctor German Arzate has received training from the creator of All-on-4, at Malo Clinic. There are incredibly few dental practitioners that count themselves among this group.
  • Price: Obviously, the cost is also a huge factor for your final decision. You need to be aware that getting All on 4 dental implant treatment on only one arch (top or bottom) will cost you about $30,000 USD. This price doesn’t include anything else like bone grafts, extractions, anesthesia, etc. … so you could end up having to pay $60,000 USD in USA. Luckily for you, you can get All-on-4 in Cancun for a fraction of that price. Here’s our regular All-on-4 price, but you should contact us directly to check for our special All-on-4 discounts and deals available.
