One of the biggest barriers (actual or perceived) to life-changing dental treatment is the cost. Dental restoration sounds expensive, especially when it promises a new set of realistic-looking teeth. If you’re like most people, you likely don’t have thousands of dollars to spare for detailed dental treatment. Some dental providers don’t even provide the upfront costs of their treatments, leaving you no idea what to expect when the bill arrives. It can be tempting to leave dental problems – even missing teeth – untreated.
Next Smile Australia does things differently. We want every single person to be able to access the life-changing benefits of All-on-4® dental treatment. What is All-on-4®? It’s an advanced form of restorative dentistry that allows a bridge of new teeth to rest on four implants. Like many people, you may be interested in the treatment but grapple with how to pay for All-on-4®.
If you’ve been living with missing teeth for a while, it may be hard to believe that you can achieve a new, flawless smile that you’ll be proud to show the world again – or that you can afford it. But it’s worth replacing your missing teeth for the sake of your oral and overall health, as well as the fact that doing so lets you chew more comfortably and maintain your facial shape.
Next Smile Australia’s All-on-4® Super Clinics carry out your All-on-4® treatment using the latest cutting-edge technology in clean and comfortable environments. If you love the thought of showing off your brand-new smile again, but you’re worried about how much it will cost, Next Smile Australia has payment plans in place to make it easier for you. This article is all about how to pay for All-on-4® and the benefit this form of dental treatment can bring to your life.
What is All-on-4®?
All-on-4® is a long-lasting solution for missing teeth that offers a fixed alternative to dentures. While it’s essentially a style of dental implants, it’s also a revolutionary new approach to treatment that reduces discomfort and recovery periods. But its biggest benefit is that it can provide you with an entirely new, convincing-looking smile in just one day.
While traditional dental implants involve a series of titanium screws inserted into the jawbone, topped with artificial teeth or “crowns”, All-on-4® uses just four implants to support an entire “bridge” or arch of new teeth.
All-on-4® has several advantages over traditional dental implants. You receive your new set of teeth within 24 hours of your implant surgery and often as soon as you wake up. The teeth are designed to fit the shape of your mouth and look so genuine and natural that no one can tell they’re implants. Because All-on-4® allows the implants to be inserted into your jaw at angles that strategically avoid weak parts of the jawbone, there’s no need for dental bone grafting. This lets you avoid a painful procedure that stretches your recovery time.
Dr Paulo Malo pioneered the All-on-4® treatment in 1998 in partnership with Nobel Biocare. Dr Malo has personally trained some of the dentists and dental surgeons at Next Smile Australia, and we use his very own treatment process, ‘The Malo Protocol’.
During stage one of this process, you receive a set of provisional teeth to wear for three to six months. Once your new implants have integrated with your jawbone, you’ll be ready for stage two: fitting your new permanent teeth.
Following the high standards of ‘The Malo Protocol’, All-on-4® has a 98% success rate and has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients. It may sound only natural that such an advanced, successful treatment would be expensive. How do you decide how to pay for All-on-4® dental implants, then? And how much does it really cost for a whole new smile?
How Much Does All-on-4® Cost?
At Next Smile Australia, we’re always transparent in our pricing and promises about what your treatment will include. We take the guesswork out of your treatment so you know exactly what to plan and budget for, and there are no surprises down the line. We have one-time, upfront pricing for your treatment. It’s important to keep in mind that we have payment plans and dental financing to help make the cost easier for you. And while other dental providers may offer lower upfront costs, they may hide unexpected expenses further down the track or use less effective approaches than the Malo Protocol.
For the full cost of $27,000, your treatment includes a no-obligation consultation, All-on-4® dental implant surgery, treatment at one of our industry-leading All-on-4® Super Clinics, both provisional and final sets of teeth custom-made with Nobel Biocare components, detailed monitoring of your healing process and knowledgeable, empathetic after-care assistance, and other benefits.
All-on-4® Payment Plans
Your All-on-4® journey begins with a complimentary personal consultation. A team member will take an in-depth look at your situation and dental history to assess your suitability for the treatment.
