All-on-4

+ More
  • The All-on-4 dental implant treatment was designed by Nobel Biocare, and is used to replace an entire upper or lower set of teeth. The procedure creates a permanent prosthesis by using four dental implants that act as an anchor for a bridge or overdenture of 12-to-14 teeth.

    The dentist performs or examines diagnostic tests (such as panoramic X-rays and a CT scan) to assess the patient's jaw bone density. These scans are then often followed up by computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (known as CAD/CAM) processes that plan the All-on-4 procedure and allow the dentist to precisely insert the dental implants into the jaw.

    I’ll repeat that cost doubling was and is a huge disappointment. I would not recommend to my friends.

    Response from Sani Dental:
    "We’re very sorry about your experience Minette, the price sent to our patients it’s only an estimate, it does not mean that’s going to be the final price, because once the patient goes through diagnosis consultation with our dentists, the prices may vary because different conditions not detected by the x-rays or CT scan can be found during the procedure. But the changes made in your treatment were done with the purpose of giving you a long lasting smile. If you’re not happy with your treatment results, you can contact us so we can explain to you everything about our warranty plans. Greetings from the Sani Dental Group staff."

    I first want to express my gratitude for the Dental work that was done. I am very pleased with the Dental work and the enjoyable experiencee of having such a caring and competent Dentist as Dr. Gamacho. I would like to send a thanks to him and his assistant Antonio could you give me a mailing address for both of them.
    I would like to add that Tony at the Hacienda was really helpful and I had a good time sitting in the plaza of the Hotel at night and conversing with the other patients. My visit to Mexico was beyond my expectations, so thanks to you and everyone involved in my Dental work.

    I am quite pleased with all of my dental work. A suggestion would be that there could have been better medical communication about exact work I knew needed to be done, but I'm not sure exactly how to implement that suggestion.

    My summary about my dental tourism experience is that it is much like the rest of life: advocate for yourself where needed, listen to those around you, be nice to everyone, be quiet and considerate, believe the best of people and you will seldom be disappointed.

    I had an excellent experience! I was able to get the 2 root canals finished on Monday, then went back Tuesday morning to get the temporary caps. We are going back next Monday and Tuesday for finish the crown procedures. I feel SO much better. The procedures were completely pain free, the doctors and staff were all wonderful, and professional. I am so happy I was able to get in, I truly feel like a new person!
    Thanks for everything!

    Great experience for me. Sani-Dental had a van to meet me at the Yuma, AZ, airport, take me across the border and to my hotel - The Hacienda. The Hacienda was OK. Only $50 a night. Has a good little restaurant. Although - no daily maid service - no clean sheets everyday and no clean towels each day. A really good thing is that a representative of Sani-Dental is at the hotel each morning for breakfast. One can talk with her about your procedures, etc. The shuttle van will take patients to and from their appointments. The Dental Office is clean and bright. The person at the front desk was very helpful. One does have to be prepared to wait. On Monday -- First - I met with someone about costs. Second - I met with a Dr. about what I wanted done. Third - they took the first impressions of my mouth. On Tuesday, I had a fitting in the morning, Then later that afternoon, the final fitting. On Tuesday afternoon, I walked out with a fine fitting set of new dentures. The next day, the shuttle van took me back across the border and to the Yuma, AZ, airport. Could not have been simpler. I highly recommend.
    I didn't drive to Algodones, MX, so I don't know about the border crossing for vehicles - or - the long wait times to get back and forth in a car. ---- If you go to Alogondes, don't forget about their great prices on prescription drugs. eye glasses and hearing aids as well.

    It has been 3 weeks since I had my implants done. So far no problems. I have had very little pain or swelling. It took about 2 weeks (just like the doc said) for me to get used to talking without mispronouncing certain syllables. I am very pleased with the service and friendliness of the staff. I have only good things to say about Sani Dental Group. Thanks

    I went to Mexico with great trepidation, but I was greatly impressed with the quality of service and the very capable Dental personnel. My Dentist kept me informed at all times about the procedures and the work needed to done. I must say for once I enjoyed going to the Dentist. I saved money , but that as it turned
    out was secondary to the overall experience. I am happy customer.

    I had been experiencing mouth pain for nearly two years, and finally felt financially stable enough to address the issue. I visited 2 offices in Scottsdale, AZ and was quoted nearly $6k for 2 root canals and 2 crowns. I felt like I would have to live with the pain forever. A friend of mine recommended the website MEDIGO- he explained that it is an International healthcare site that helps you find affordable care, just across the border. I first emailed then shortly thereafter received a call from Melvin at Medigo. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and worked quickly as he knew I was in pain. We had heard about Sani Dental through some other friends here in AZ, and Melvin couldn't recommend them higher! He called the very next day and said they could get me in, in 4 hours. Lucky for us we only live 3 hours from Los Algodones, so we hopped in the car and headed South. The location was very easy to find once you crossed the border, Melvin provided us with a simple map to help us get there. We found a nice, underground, parking lot next door to the office for only $2/day. The office was very clean, the staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. They took the panoramic X-ray ($60) and I had my first consultation with Dr. Mikel. He agreed I needed two root canals ($180 each), two posts ($80 each), and two crowns ($450 each) and within 45 minutes I was in the chair being introduced to Dr. Alejandro and his assistant. The process was 100% pain free and Dr. Alejandro made sure of that. They even let my husband sit in the room with me for comfort. The 2 root canals took about 5 hours, but when I left I finally felt better. Sani Dental owns a hotel down the street and if you are getting a certain amount of dental work done they comp you a room! We set up the appt for the temporary crowns and headed to the Hacienda. The next day I went in to the other office and met Dr. Gustavo and his assistant Albert. They were so wonderful, young, fun, and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Gustavo has to be one of the most gentle dentists I have ever met! They took a mold of my mouth and gave me temporary crowns. Typically they prefer that you stay 3 nights in a row to get the work done as quickly as possible, but we had to get back to Scottsdale for work, so we scheduled the crown fitting and install for the next weekend. We went back the next Friday and I was so glad to see Dr. Gustavo again, I was worried they would switch dentists on me, but nope! We stayed one more night at the Hacienda and the following day I got my permanent crowns, and a cleaning ($30), and we were on our way. The entire experience was amazing. International health care made me a bit nervous, but now I'm telling everyone to go to Sani Dental! The best overall part of the experience was saving $4500 by traveling 3 short hours to Mexico.

    The Clinic is really easy to reach - with an underground car park in case you want to drive across the border.
    The clinic equipment are maybe not the latest gadgets, but clearly up to the task. Important things like surround xray is used. I had crowns done, root canal and an implant. There is a doctor for each task so you spend time going from one treatment room to the next. Seeing different doctors. Not a bad thing, however I was surprised that some of the doctors didn't speak English. A very positive note: As a patient you always know how much you are going to be charged for. There is no surprise. So far so good - I have to go back to complete the process.
    Ohh and I stayed in the local Hacienda Hotel. The clinic has a contract with them. Do not expect too much, if you are picky then book a hotel across the border in Yuma.

The clinic was visited by a member of the MEDIGO Team

Going to SANI Dental is quite an experience! They are the largest clinic in Los Algodones and have been treating US patients for years. They've created a whole medical plaza with restaurants and cafes and hotel to accomodate their patients. I got a full tour of the clinic and met some patients that were really happy about the treatment and care they had received at SANI. They work with over 30 dentists to cover all specilaties. There's an information office where you can discuss your treatment in more detail. I was warmly greeted by all dentists and staff!
