The Benefits of Getting All-on-4® on the Gold Coast

It may be the beauty that draws so many to the Gold Coast, but spend a little time here, and you’ll find there’s more to this place than meets the eye. So it is with All-on-4® that is both a cosmetic and restorative treatment concept. The teeth fulfil the function of aesthetic appeal, but below the surface, they also help to protect your health. A dental procedure may not be on your Gold Coast bucket list. But when it comes to All-on-4®, Gold Coast is an excellent location for treatment.

All-on-4® brings back your smile if you’ve been living with missing or badly damaged teeth. While not uncommon in Australia, gaps in your smile can affect several aspects of your life, from your self-confidence to your job prospects. The dental and overall health connection is a strong and established one, as untreated, missing teeth can lead to various consequences for your whole mouth and the rest of your body. Gaps in your gums can allow bacteria access to other parts of your system, leading to not only dental diseases like periodontitis but serious cardiovascular conditions. All-on-4® stops the progression of such problems in their tracks and protects your health for the long term.

Whether you’re a Gold Coast local or visitor, this Queensland city is at the leading edge of medical advancements. It also has an internationally established reputation as a tourist destination with world-famous beaches. If there’s an appropriate time and place to regain your smile, it’s during the All-on-4® Gold Coast treatment with Next Smile.

What is All-on-4®?

All-on-4® is a medically advanced and cutting-edge full-mouth restoration treatment that provides you with a new set of teeth. If you’ve been searching for a solution for missing teeth for a while, you’ve undoubtedly encountered dental implants, which involve a series of titanium screws inserted into the jawbone with a dental implant on top of each. Pioneered by Dr Paulo Malo in 1998 in partnership with Nobel Biocare, All-on-4® involves an entire arch or “bridge” of new teeth supported by just four implants: two at the front and two at the back.

Next Smile uses Dr Malo’s two-stage All-on-4® treatment process, known as ‘the Malo Protocol’. During stage one of this process, patients receive their first set of teeth or “provisional bridge” to be held in place for three to six months. During this timeframe, the implants fuse with the patient’s jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. Once that’s complete, the patient will be ready for their “final bridge” or set of teeth.

Why should you choose All-on-4® (if you’re eligible) over traditional dental implants on the Gold Coast? The next section covers some of the unique benefits as well as the advantages of the All-on-4® Gold Coast treatment.

Benefits of All-on-4®

Signs You May Need a Bone Graft
The most significant benefits of All-on-4® include:

A new set of teeth within 24 hours

Your first set of provisional teeth will always be ready no longer than 24 hours after your implant surgery, and sometimes as soon as you wake up from it.

A proven 98% success rate

Using the tried-and-tested methods of the Malo Protocol, All-on-4® has a 98% success rate with hundreds of thousands of successful implants performed.

No bone grafting

One of the biggest drawbacks of traditional dental implants is that if your jawbone lacks sufficient mass to support the implants, you’ll need a dental bone grafting procedure. This process is often uncomfortable, even painful, and can significantly lengthen your healing time.
