  • 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.

    April 2018

    My first visit was to check out the clinic, and consult with Dr. Guevera, who expertly answered all my questions and concerns. A week later I returned to have the root canal and was expertly taken care of by Dr. Marcia Bustamente. It was one of the least painful and best encounters I have had in a dentist office for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately I had put off getting my tooth fixed, so it was inflamed and she advised me to wait for a few weeks to let the inflammation die down before putting on the crown. Yeah. So glad I have found a dental office I feel comfortable in.

    The taxi was confused and didn't know where to drop us. We called the clinic and one of the bilingual staff came down and found and shepherded us back to the clinic. There we met with Dr. Guevera, the clinic director, who reviewed the xrays from my US dentist, and developed a treatment plan that made sense. He reassured me that they would take good care of me, so I chose to schedule the work there.

The interior of the clinic was spotless. They have state-of-the-art equipment and relaxing waiting room. Everything was new!

Dr. Guevara and the staff are very friendly and easy to get along with. I saw their interaction with patients, he treated them like relatives!
