How do we choose the best treatment?
Dental implantation All on 6
Each year, medical tourism is becoming more and more popular. We can trace how this industry has changed and developed and finally acquired today's features.
We can distinguish four stages of development and trends in medical tourism:
- Formation of an industry with the main focus - health tourism (trips to thermal springs, to countries with a milder climate, etc.).
- The pursuit of technology - the stage when patients went to other countries for better treatment methods.
- Non-conventional or alternative medicine. Refers to an era when the level of medicine became about the same in developed countries and patients sought treatments that are not practiced or forbidden in their home country.
- Price, quality, and time are today's demands of patients. They travel to other countries in search of the best balance of these three indicators.
One in three medical tourists seek treatment in another country for dental reasons. Many people know that you can get inexpensive and quality dental care in Mexico, Turkey or some Asian countries (South Korea, Singapore, etc.). These destinations are popular, but the cents of interest are constantly shifting, new players are emerging who are serious competition to the established market leaders.
In recent years, the countries of Eastern and Western Europe have become increasingly popular; they have their own specifics, but are gradually attracting patients from all over the world.
Countries in Europe provide a full range of dental services, which is quite extensive. But the most popular services include:
- Dental implant placement.
- Crown installation.
- Teeth whitening.
- Oral and maxillofacial surgery.
- Installation of bracket systems.
- Veneers and lumineers.
- Pediatric dentistry.
- Treatment of teeth and gums.

The implantation procedure can be divided into several steps:
Initial appointment at the doctor's office. An oral cavity is examined, the patient's problems are identified, and additional tests (blood analysis, CT scan, etc.) may be ordered.
Fitting. The doctor uses a computer to model the patient's future smile, determines the size of implants, as well as identifies where to place them.
Placement of implants. Using local anesthesia, the surgeon makes a puncture in the soft tissue and inserts all 6 implants into the bone. Implants are taken from the jaws to make a denture.
Prosthetics. The final stage of implantation. The dentures can be placed the same day as the pins or within a few days, depending on the readiness of the denture, the patient's condition and the condition of the jaw. The prosthesis is attached with special screws or cement. You cannot remove the denture with your own hands but only with the help of your dentist.

You can get more detailed advice about the placement of implants and the choice of country for this procedure by contacting the managers of "UAmedTOURS".
For the first few weeks, you should take care of the healing of the implant sites, use antiseptic or herbal baths, and use cotton swabs to clean the wounds. After eating, rinse your mouth with water to remove food debris.
Use a toothbrush marked Soft or Ultra Soft. This will be enough to remove plaque, but protect the gum and denture from damage.
Toothpaste should not contain fluoride, phosphorus, calcium or other minerals that strengthen natural tooth enamel or prevent cavities. Choose pastes with herbal extracts of chamomile, sage, ratatania root, mint, myrrh and echinacea.
Do not use mouthwashes until your gums are completely healed.
The use of an irrigator is recommended, as it helps remove food debris from the denture floor, massaging the gums, which improves microcirculation in the capillaries and improves the overall condition of the mucosa.
Also, don't forget about professional dental cleanings.
All of these recommendations will help you feel comfortable after your implants are placed, and will greatly extend their lifespan.
The longevity of implants depends on several factors:
- The professionalism of the doctor who placed them.
- The quality of the implants used.
- The standing of your health.
- How gentle you are with your artificial teeth.
- The proper care of your denture.
In general, depending on the company you choose, implants can last anywhere from 5 to 20 years.
Keep in mind that damage to your denture does not mean you need to replace the entire system. If the pins implanted in your jaw are in good condition, your dentist can install a new denture on them. And it will cost several times less.
In essence, both technologies are the same and even the recovery period and full denture will take approximately the same amount of time.
The only difference is the number of pins that are implanted in the patient's jaw and on which the artificial tooth row is held.
The choice of All on 6 or All on 4 depends on the condition of your jaw and the decision of your dentist. Therefore, it is imperative that you are examined by your dentist and listen to his recommendations before the procedure is chosen.
If you're in another country, you can get an initial consultation online or you can get tested in your home country and send your doctor the results.
Also All on 6 and All on 4 differ in price, since the latter has fewer pins, the cost of the implant will be lower.
Install dental implants according to All on 6 technology in any country in Europe, so everything will be maximum comfortable, fast and of high quality - use the services of "UAmedTOURS". Our experts will answer all your questions and choose the most suitable option.
