The Benefits of Getting All-on-4® in Perth

Living with missing or badly damaged teeth is challenging. Not only can simple actions like speaking and chewing, which most other people take for granted, become more difficult, but there are also potential long-term consequences on the mouth and the rest of the body. Missing teeth are common in Australia, but you don’t have to simply put up with them for the rest of your life. The All-on-4® treatment can provide you with a brand-new smile in just one day, and now it has arrived in Perth.

Founded in 2023 by Senior Dental Implants Clinicians Dr Daniel Abbondanza and Dr Caroline Kowalski, Next Smile Australia Perth is determined to bring the benefits of All-on-4® to the people of Perth and beyond. As the first Next Smile clinic in Western Australia, Next Smile Australia Perth is here not only for the benefit of residents of WA’s capital city but for those in surrounding areas like Mandurah and Rockingham and further afield. If you’re serious about restoring your smile along with your dental and overall health, All-on-4® in Perth has a number of benefits.

Whether you call Perth home or you’re interested in combining your All-on-4®treatment with a stay in the city, Next Smile Australia’s All-on-4® in Perth is your path to a fresh start and a new smile.

What is All-on-4®?

If you’ve already spent some time searching for a solution to your dental problems, it may seem as though dentures or dental implants are your best available options. All-on-4®, pioneered by Dr Paulo Malo in 1998, is very similar to dental implants but with some important distinctions. While traditional implants involve a series of titanium screws inserted into the jawbone one by one with a false tooth attached to the top of each, All-on-4® rests an entire “bridge” or arch of teeth on just four screws. There are two implants in the front and two in the back on one jawbone, hence the name “All-on-4®”.

This approach has benefits that more traditional approaches to implants simply don’t. You can receive a new smile immediately after waking up from your implant surgery and never more than 24 hours afterwards. The procedure has a faster recovery time than other dental operations and is designed in a way that avoids the need for dental bone grafting (which is often necessary for traditional implants). Perhaps most importantly, All-on-4®is effective. More than 25 years of clinical data have demonstrated a 98% success rate for the procedure.

It’s important to perform the operation correctly and as diligently as possible. Next Smile Australia partnered with Dr Malo himself to bring All-on-4® to Australia and use Dr Malo’s own two-bridge treatment process, ‘The Malo Protocol’. During stage one of the process, you receive your first set of teeth, otherwise known as your “provisional bridge”. Over the next three to six months, your implants and jawbone will fuse in a process known as osseointegration. Once this is complete, you’ll be ready for your “final bridge”, your final set of teeth.

All-on-4® is not intended for patients who have lost a tooth or two but for patients who would benefit from full mouth restoration. If all or most of your teeth are missing or badly damaged, it can be a cost-effective and very time-efficient way to reclaim your smile, protect your health and step out into the world no longer feeling self-conscious about your teeth.

Tens of thousands of patients have benefited from All-on-4® so far. Now Next Smile Australia Perth wants the residents of WA to reap the rewards of All-on-4® Perth treatment.

Dr Daniel Abbondanza

Since Dr Daniel Abbondanza graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Dental Science in 2003, he’s been committed to further expanding his dental skills. His eager interest in aesthetic dentistry and its intersection with the field of dental implants led to the completion of a Masters in implant dentistry in 2009, from which he finished top of the class. Since 2007, his practice has included advanced surgical techniques, including the All-on-4® in Perth.

Dr Abbondanza has lectured on dentistry in Europe and Asia and represented Western Australia for the Australian Prosthodontic Society from 2009 to 2014.

Dr Caroline Kowalski

Dr Caroline Kowalski graduated with a Bachelor in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Birmingham in 2003, then a Bachelor of Dentistry with Honours from London’s King’s College University in 2011. Before moving into a private dental practice, she spent six years in hospitals throughout the UK, working in areas like ENT and head and neck. She is highly experienced in a wide range of different treatments, such as orthodontics, prosthodontics and restorative dentistry.

Since moving to Australia in 2015, Dr Kowalski has worked in private dental practice. Her varied interests include both implant therapy and full mouth rehabilitations, which makes the All-on-4® treatment a perfect specialty for her. She speaks four languages: English, Spanish, Swedish and Polish.
