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.

    **Sani Dental Group's response**
    Thank you for talking the time to write a feedback for us. All comments are welcome, especial those that help us improve the service to our patients.

    I’m deeply sorry to hear that you continue having issues with your bite occlusion. In your particular case I’m sure it’s more difficult without having molars to compensate the bite. Our medical staff worked hard to make you happy, but unfortunately in the medical field it’s hard to prevent complications with some medical procedures.

    However, you have full warranty for the treatment done at our clinic, and we are here to honor it. I added a note on your electronic file for future reference; I also informed our Medical Director so he knows about your case.

    Your satisfaction it’s important to us, please give us the opportunity to correct whatever needs to be corrected. I can schedule an appointment for you directly with our Medical Director, I’m sure that he will find the best possible solution for your bite occlusion. Our doors are wide open for you, please advise.

    I spent a few hours in the chair, which left me with a sore jaw from opening so wide for so long!! Other than that, everything went great. I'm actually getting 6 crowns instead of 4. Ughhhh. But the service and quality seem great at this point. I'll keep you posted! Thanks again for all your help.

    The goal at Sani is to sell you a full mouth treatment plan to extract as many teeth as possible and sell you implants. I was told that 5 molars needed to be removed. I sought asecond opinion nearby and was informed by that 3 could be treated with root canal therapy. I opted for one root canal and one 2 crowns at Sani since I gave them a $800 deposit that was non refundable. The root canal was fine but the crown is terrible. It took the dentist 3 molds to get it right and 2 visits to attempt a good fit. It is still not correct. The staff are very disorganized at times losing my dental information and not even following up with how things were progressing. Expect to be ignored once you cough up a hefty deposit. I went elsewhere for 2 extractions and 2 implants done by a very caring and honest dentist. Sani is an assembly line of young inexperienced dentists learning their craft at your expense. A very disturbing experience.

    Hello I am a real person in Alaska and I began my quest for new teeth earlier in 2015. We were going to go to Thailand but later found out we didn't need to go quiet that far from home and my domestic partner Gary could go with me. We heard and read a lot online about Mexico but as with lots of things out there all were based on ones experience and I am a believer that not everyone experiences things in the world the same way.

    This is why I liked Medigo in this process they informed me that we needed not go all the way to Thailand that mexico was closer and I began asking my questions to Melinai who was awesome.

    Now let me inform you that there are those at Sani Dental Clinic there were not as fortunate as we were in knowing about Medigo. They were a major part in our decisions to continue this venture or quest for beautiful smile.
    Thank God for the freedom to choose and thank God for letting us go to Mexico and experience this beautiful place with its beautiful people that treated us like we were family.

    They went from taking us everywhere we need to go in vans to personally walking us down the street to the pharmacy and directing all the way there and back. It was as though we were king and queen. Jose' our new found tour guide/family member/Sani Dental employee walked us down the street speaking to his aquaintences as though he were walking with the Said KING And QUEEN of the USA, this was a awesome feeling. To be in Mexico and feel this freedom was indeed a change of pace. From some of the reviews I had read. I don't think I have ever felt that welcome when going anywhere in the USA other than Alaska. Alaska living is a lot like the Mexican people they really treat you like family. So again, I am feeling like I am home.
    Because of what we paid for my procedure we stayed for basically free. If you spent 1000 then you got 3 night free. This was good for us.
    I would strongly recommend you stay at the Hasendia there in Los Alagondes , Mexico. They will care for you after your teeth have been removed as you will not feel like walking across the Yuma Border when your surgery is completed. Take some good advice stay at that motel. You will have no regrets.
    My procedure was finished on July 9, 2015 and we went home on the 11th. It was quick but they did a wonderful job when they put me to sleep. I felt nothing. I remember nothing. It seemed like I was asleep only 5 minutes and I think I was out for approximately 6 hours.

SANI group has two dental clinics in Los Algodones that are just two blocks from each other. Sani Platinum is the newest one and has a different interior design. I was told that they provide the exact same service in both clinics, so patients are likely to be treated in one or the other. The staff are super friendly and easy going.
