If you’ve been living with missing teeth and you’re looking for an effective treatment option to bring back your smile, who do you turn to? How about a clinic with more than 30 years of experience in an easy-to-access location in Brisbane City? Next Smile Australia’s Brisbane clinic has the experience, the technology and the dedication to customising a new smile you can be proud of. In Next Smile’s hands, All-on-4® in Brisbane can be the fresh start you’ve been looking for.
Missing teeth are common in Australia, with a mean number of around six between adults over 18 . Yet despite their prevalence among the population, the health consequences of leaving them untreated are real and serious. Even one missing tooth can set off a chain reaction that leads to other dental and overall health problems. Teeth can shift out of place, becoming crooked and leading to an irregular bite. Lack of stimulation can cause the jawbone to weaken, resulting in a loss of other teeth. Bacteria can make their way into the open pockets in the gums, causing gum diseases such as periodontitis and, eventually, health conditions in other parts of the body, especially the heart.
All-on-4® is a form of full mouth restoration that brings back the look, feel and function of your natural teeth and protects your health for the long term. Next Smile delivers the treatment at the highest level of quality and care in our industry-leading Super Clinics.
Brisbane is Queensland’s capital and Australia’s third-biggest city. Well-known for its iconic river, quality of life and leisure activities, it’s perhaps less well-known for its innovation and new developments in medical research.
If you’re a local and have been looking for dental implants in Brisbane, All-on-4® offers a unique treatment option with a new smile in just one day. If you’re from out of town, why not combine a holiday with All-on-4® Brisbane treatment for a stay you’ll never forget?
What is All-on-4®?
All-on-4® is a full mouth restoration treatment that can give you a new smile in 24 hours without a long recovery time or the need for uncomfortable procedures like bone grafting. The concept is similar to dental implants, which involve a series of titanium screws inserted into the jawbone, each supporting an artificial tooth. All-on-4®’s difference is that an entire “bridge” or arch of teeth rests on just four implants: two at the front and two at the back.
Dr Paulo Malo pioneered All-on-4® in 1998, and since then, the procedure has provided new sets of natural-looking teeth to hundreds of thousands of patients. The procedure has a proven 98% success rate and a range of other benefits, as you’ll see in the next section.
How Does it Work?
Unlike traditional implants, which typically only support a single tooth or a short bridge, All-on-4® uses four implants to support an entire arch of teeth. The implants are inserted at an angle that targets stronger areas of the jawbone, eliminating the need for dental bone grafting and other procedures and the long recovery times that often accompany them.
Next Smile uses Dr Paulo Malo’s treatment process, ‘The Malo Protocol’. This two-stage full mouth restoration ensures you can reasonably expect a positive outcome when you receive All-on-4® in Brisbane. During stage one of the process, you’ll receive your first set of teeth: a ‘provisional bridge’ that you wear for three to six months while your bone fuses with the implants. Once this stage has passed, you’ll be ready for your ‘final bridge’ or set of new teeth. Dr Malo’s research partners Nobel Biocare, make all the materials we use to construct your new teeth in our in-house laboratories. When we construct the implants, they suit your facial features, needs and specifications.
Am I Suitable for All-on-4®?
If you’re ready to gain a new smile and all the benefits that come with it, it’s likely that All-on-4® is right for you. The best way to find out for sure is to book an appointment with a member of the Next Smile team, who can take your medical and dental history and personal needs into account. However, All-on-4® dental implants in Brisbane are potentially the perfect treatment option if:
- You’ve lost all or most of your teeth due to injury, illness, genetics or other factors.
- You have advanced gum disease.
- You can’t restore your teeth another way or won’t gain any significant benefit from doing so.
You don’t necessarily need to be missing all of your teeth, or even an entire arch, to be eligible for All-on-4® in Brisbane. However, the right candidates generally have all, most or multiple teeth missing. The criteria for All-on-4® is different to the criteria for single or even multiple dental implants, so the best course of action is to trust the experts and book a personal consultation with Next Smile.
