The Benefits of the All-on-4® Clinic in Melbourne

In Melbourne, you’d reasonably expect the quality of dental treatments to be high. Next Smile Melbourne, however, is still likely to exceed expectations as the home of the most experienced All-on-4® surgeon in the country. A state-of-the-art clinic featuring the highest quality of trained staff and dental technology, Next Smile’s All-on-4® clinic in Melbourne will provide you with a brand new set of stunning teeth in as little as one day.

Missing teeth can not only steal your smile and erode your self-confidence, they often lead to a number of serious health consequences and other issues. Other teeth can shift to fill the gaps left behind, leading to crooked and uneven teeth that are more difficult to clean between. Speaking and eating often become harder, and the bones in the jaw can weaken, leading to the loss of further teeth. The risk of gum disease increases, leading to the potential spread of disease to other parts of the body.

Fortunately, there are ways to deal with missing teeth before problems escalate to that stage, and gain a newfound radiant, glowing smile while you do so. Traditional dental implants are artificial teeth affixed to the jawbone with titanium screws. As effective as All-on-4® implants are for restoring missing teeth, getting them can be a long, slow process that often requires painful procedures such as bone grafting.

All-on-4® takes a different approach that’s both simpler and more powerful. Pioneered by Dr Paulo Malo in 1998, it provides you with a brand-new set of perfect teeth resting on just four implants. There’s no bone grafting required and no long recovery period. You receive your first set of provisional teeth immediately after your implant surgery.

Next Smile offers All-on-4® dental implants in Melbourne. Our Melbourne clinic is in the suburb of Hawthorn, close to sights and landmarks like Central Gardens and the Melbourne Tram Museum. Melbourne’s friendly atmosphere, terrific quality of life and variety of cultural, sporting and shopping attractions mean that if you’re travelling here for treatment, you can mix some pleasure into your trip.

The team at Next Smile’s Melbourne Super Clinic have the training, the experience and the technology to have you smiling again. There are several benefits to choosing us as your All-on-4® clinic in Melbourne.

History of the Clinic

Dr Paulo Malo created the All-on-4® technique in partnership with research sponsor Nobel Biocare. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have been successfully treated with All-on-4®, and studies have revealed a 98% success rate for the procedure over the long term.

Lead All-on-4® dental surgeon and clinic owner Dr Larry Benge partnered with Dr Malo to bring All-on-4® to Australia as founder and director of Next Smile Australia.

All Next Smile dentists and dental surgeons are trained by Dr Malo and use a two bridge-process called ‘The Malo Protocol’. Stage one of the process involves a first set of teeth (or “provisional bridge”) left in place for three to six months. As your mouth adjusts to your new set of teeth and your titanium implants integrate with your jawbone, Next Smile will be hard at work building your ‘final bridge’, or full set of permanent teeth. These teeth are indistinguishable from a natural set that has been properly looked after over time, and strangers simply won’t be able to tell you’ve had All-on-4®.

You can trust Next Smile Melbourne to perform All-on-4® dental implants in Melbourne the way that Dr Malo intended.

History of Dr Larry Benge

Dr Larry Benge has over 40 years of experience in dentistry, having graduated from the University of Melbourne with first-class honours in Dental Science in 1980. His dental practice focuses on aesthetic, reconstructive and implant dentistry, particularly the All-on-4® method. He has spent 35 years at Bond Street Dental, rising to the position of practice principal before partnering with Dr Malo to bring the All-on-4® treatment method to Australia.

He has also studied, lectured and been published both locally and overseas, and his deep knowledge of dentistry has led to regular radio appearances on 2GB and 4BC.
