An implant is a small titanium screw that fits inside the jawbone and replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. Minor surgery is required to insert the implants. Once the implant is in place, a crown is attached to give you a highly realistic-looking and functional prosthetic tooth

The patient does not need a dental implant for each and every one of the missing teeth. All they need is four precisely placed implants on the top of their mouth, and four on the bottom, to restore the full smile. That’s the beauty of the all-on-four. And because the implant is made of titanium, it has the unique ability to fuse to living bone and function as part of it. So eventually, the dental implant becomes part of the jawbone and serves as a strong, long-lasting foundation for new teeth

Besides ensuring that implants are permanently fixed in place, this bone fusion has another important benefit: it prevents future bone loss in the jaw. This helps to maintain a more youthful facial structure—and better oral health. But perhaps the biggest surprise about the all-on-four is how quickly it can transform the life.

Procedure

  • Step 1 - Dentist will give anesthesia, probably sedating patient
  • Step 2 - The dentist or surgeon will prepare the mouth for the implants, which involves removing the remaining teeth that are failing. Any diseased or infected tissue from the jaw and gums will be removed.
  • Step 3 - Dentist will insert the titanium screws through the gum tissue into the jawbone. Most likely, the doctor will place two implants toward the front of the mouth as that’s where the most bone tissue typically exists, and toward the back of the mouth so these anchors can evenly bare the force of the denture.
  • Step 4 - After the implants have been placed, the surgeon will thoroughly clean the surgical sites and suturing all the incisions. The patient will be taken to a recovery room where they can relax and take time to wake up from the anesthesia.

Healing time

One of the benefits of getting an All-On-4 dental replacement is the quick recovery time. The recovery time after getting traditional dentures can be 3 to 4 months, but after getting an All-On-4, the patient should be a few days to a week or so. The reason is that the implants fuse to your bone from the very first day.

Why India?


Medical tourism is a growing sector in India which is projected to grow to $7-8 billion by 2020.Advantages of medical treatment in India include reduced costs, the availability of latest medical technologies and a growing compliance on international quality standards, doctors trained in western countries including US and UK as well as English speaking personnel due to which foreigners are less likely to face language barrier in India.

With this in focus, Government of India have implemented visa-on-arrival scheme or e-Visa for tourists from select countries which allows foreign nationals to stay in India for 30 days for medical reasons.
