All-on-4® vs Dental Restoration

Are you tired of taking out your dentures or getting dental implants? All-on-4® is the solution you’ve been looking for

What is Dental Restoration?

Restorative dentistry or dental restoration focuses on repairing or replacing teeth that are decayed, damaged or missing.

The most common types of dental restoration include:

  • Fillings: During the procedure, your dentist removes the decayed portion of your tooth and fills the hole with a tooth-coloured composite material.
  • Crowns: Dental crowns are used to repair large cavities or restore broken teeth. A crown fits over your entire tooth, and your dentist must remove some of your natural tooth enamel.
  • Root canal: If a cavity or crack goes deep enough into your tooth that it reaches the pulp, it can cause an infection, and a root canal is needed as a form of dental restoration. During the procedure, your dentist removes the diseased pulp and fills the tooth with a dental material called gutta-percha. In most cases, people who undergo root canal therapy as a form of dental restoration also need a crown to provide additional support.
  • Bridge: A dental bridge can replace a missing tooth or row of missing teeth. A bridge is a form of dental restoration that consists of artificial teeth with crowns on either side. Your dentist will shave down your natural teeth on both sides of the gap and bond the bridge to them.
  • Dental implants: They are one of the most popular forms of dental restoration as they replace missing teeth. An implant is inserted into your jawbone, and a crown is placed on top to replicate a natural tooth.
  • Dentures: If you have multiple missing teeth and don’t want to get dental implants, dentures are an alternative. Full dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth, and partial dentures replace several missing teeth in different areas. Unlike surgically implanted implants into your jawbone, dentures rest on top of your gums and can be easily removed.

What is All-on-4®?

At Next Smile Australia, we focus on offering a revolutionary dental restoration approach.

Unlike traditional implants, All-on-4® only requires four implants inserted into the lower and four implants into the upper jaw to support an entire arch of teeth.

The dental implants used in this treatment method are a permanent solution for those with multiple missing teeth who want to smile confidently.

At Next Smile Australia, we follow the two-stage Malo Protocol, the only clinically proven form of All-on-4® dental restoration. During the first stage, you will receive your first set of teeth, a ‘provisional bridge’ that is worn for three to six months. During the second stage, you will receive your final set of teeth.

What Our Customers Say

Frequently Asked Questions

Can All-on-4®  help with a dental injury?

Yes, it can help replace even the most severe cases of tooth loss.

How long do All-on-4®  dental implants last?

The implants are a permanent solution. However, the long-term success of your implants depends on you and your oral health habits. With regular care and cleaning, the implants can last a lifetime.

How long does the All-on-4®  procedure take?

Following your initial consultation with our experienced dental team to surgery with your chosen surgeon, your new teeth are fitted within 24 hours and often on the day of surgery.

How long does it take to get All-on-4®  dental implants?

Once you’re fitted with your provisional bridge, you will wear that for three to six months while your bone fuses with the implants. After that period, you will be fitted with your ‘final bridge’ or permanent set of teeth.

How painful are All-on-4®  dental implants?

Once you have undergone surgery, there is a dull ache over a few days from the swelling. However, the discomfort experienced after surgery is very low compared to other implants.
