All-on-4 Dental Implant costs can vary considerably. In the U.S, the average cost for the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure is $49,000 for a Full-mouth restoration, which consists of restoring both the Maxillary(upper) and Mandibular(lower) arches. In foreign countries the costs for the All-on-4 Implant procedure itself averages $25,000, but there are added expenses and risks involved, and often involves bait-and-switch.
One reason for the variance in All-on-4 Dental Implant Costs is that often the procedure you receive is not actually the All-on-4 Dental Implant procedure at all. Many practices incorrectly proclaim Snap-in Dentures, Implant Supported Dentures, or even Mini-Implants the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure. These procedures are not the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure.
Many All-on-4 Dental Implant providers may charge a separate fee for different phases of the Procedure. For instance you may be charged a separate fee for the consultative and diagnostic phase of the Procedure, a separate fee for the surgical phase of the Procedure, and yet another fee for the restorative phase of the Procedure. Many Providers also charge “hidden” incidental fees based on your particular situation. This can make the actual All-on-4 Dental Implant costs stated, different from your actual costs, when the procedure is completed months or years later.
Many Patients consider traveling abroad to countries such as Mexico or Costa Rica, in an effort to save on All-on-4 Dental Implant Costs. Patients need to be aware that they will have no protections or recourse under the laws of the United States. Any complication or malpractice that may occur during or after your procedure is assumed at your own risk. Many practices make false claims regarding their experience, facilities, procedures, and reviews. There is a reason their costs are lower, yet they are claiming to use the same materials, equipment, and procedures. The costs for these materials are no less in foreign countries, if they are available in these countries at all. It is easy to become a victim of “Bait-and Switch” when you are in a foreign land and vulnerable to their deception. If you are considering affordable All-on-4 Dental Implant Costs in a foreign country be aware that Dentists, Facilities and Dental Schools in these countries are not subject to, certified, or regulated by any governing board or consumer protection agency of the United States. These agencies DO NOT CERTIFY ANY FOREIGN ENTITIES OR DENTISTS.
The materials used in your All-on-4 Dental Implant procedure also varies. 99.9% of facilities in the world will make an acrylic denture that you will wear for months or even years. The costs to complete your procedure are dependent on outside laboratories to complete your “final” or “permanent” restoration. What makes a restoration “permanent” is that it must contain a metal substructure, usually made of titanium, or be made of a monolithic material such as Zirconia. Most facilities have an outside lab fabricate a titanium bar, wrap this bar in acrylic with denture teeth attached, or have an outside lab fabricate a Zirconia, or other material such as Crystal Ultra Ceramic Hybrid restoration after several months or years. These restoration are designed and fabricated in specialized 5-axis milling machines by experienced CAD/CAM personnel. If you are in a facility without this milling technology, you will be receiving acrylic/denture teeth restorations and possibly one of the “final” restorations months or years later. This is why All-on-4 Dental Implant costs vary, it has do with the capabilities of the facility, the costs for outside lab work, multiple visits, and experience. Studies Show it usually has nothing to do with the osseo-integration of the Dental Implants
All-on-4 Dental Implant costs can vary based on many factors. First and foremost you must determine if you are actually receiving the same procedure at every facility you evaluate. You must consider the experience of the personnel employed by the facility, the equipment and technology used by the facility, and see verifiable results in their Patients.
