Where to Get All-on-4® in Ballarat

If lost teeth have impacted your quality of life, help is available. A new smile is available for those seeking dental implants in Ballarat.

All-on-4® is an advanced form of restorative dentistry that draws on leading innovations in dental research and technology. If that kind of treatment sounds expensive or only available in capital cities, we have some good news to share. Through Next Smile Australia, All-on-4® is available around the country at competitive prices.

All-on-4® has a rich history, a bright future and several advantages that make it a better option over the long term than older and more invasive procedures. If Next Smile Australia determine that All-on-4® is the right treatment option for you, we’ll take you on a journey to a smile you’ll be delighted to show the world.

What Is All-on-4®?

All-on-4® is a medically advanced dental procedure that uses four implants to support an arch of teeth. Two implants at the front and two implants angled at the back on either the upper or lower jawbone are all that’s necessary to hold an entire bridge in place.

At Next Smile Australia, we use the two-bridge process called The Malo Protocol. First, it involves the construction of a “provisional bridge”, which is held in place for three to six months before fitting a “final bridge” of long-term teeth. Dr Paulo Malo pioneered the procedure and has trained all Next Smile Australia dental surgeons and dentists. Long-term clinical studies of All-on-4® demonstrate an effective procedure with a 98% success rate.

All-on-4® Treatment Process in Ballarat

So, if you’ve been deemed eligible to get All-on-4®, what does the treatment timeline look like?

Step 1: All-on-4® Consultation

The first step in your All-on-4® journey is to have a consultation with one of Next Smile Australia’s leading team or Accredited Partner dentists.

During this consultation, the surgeon will assess your situation, personal goals and suitability for the treatment. Scans of your jawbone, digital impressions and photographic imaging will provide a complete picture of the current state of your smile and the possibilities to come.

Step 2: Diagnosis and Treatment Preparation

During this step, you will receive the results of your consultation and a personal diagnosis will be given to you. Next, a treatment plan that perfectly meets your needs and preferences is prepared for you.

Next Smile Australia Labs will start crafting your provisional teeth based on your scans and digital impressions. These teeth will be fitted within 24 hours of surgery, and you’ll wear them for three to six months.

Step 3: Surgery

During your All-on-4® surgery, four Nobel Biocare implants of the highest quality are inserted into your jaw, providing a foundation for your new smile.

Once you wake up from surgery, or within 24 hours of surgery, we’ll reveal your provisional teeth, and you’ll walk out of the clinic a changed person.

Step 4: Post-Surgery

While your jawbone is fusing to the implants over the next three to six months, Next Smile Australia Labs is manufacturing and refining your new final set of teeth.

With trial fittings of your new final teeth to check for optimal fit and shape preference, your new life-like teeth will be fitted for you to enjoy for the long term.

Step 5: Aftercare

The final step in your All-on-4® treatment timeline is aftercare. When you wake up from surgery, your dental surgeon will provide aftercare instructions that will help you prolong the life of your new teeth.

How Is All-on-4® Different From Traditional Dental Implants?

With a 98% success rate, All-on-4® is an effective treatment option in most cases. It has turned the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients around. The differences between All-on-4® and traditional dental implants include

Just four implants

All-on-4® uses just four implants attached to a traditional arch, rather than the six to eight involved in traditional dental implants.

A faster process

With All-on-4®, your first set of provisional teeth is usually ready immediately after implant surgery and always within 24 hours. The process of traditional dental implants can drag out for many months to as long as a year, as the implants need to fuse to the bone before the abutment is added.

No bone grafting

Dental bone grafting is used in areas of your jawbone where bone loss has occurred to give your bone the mass to support traditional dental implants. All-on-4® completely bypasses the need for this procedure by placing the implants at a strategic angle that directs them to areas where the jawbone is stronger.

A shorter recovery period

With no bone grafting to recover from, you won’t have to wait long before you’re living your life as you were before and showing off your brand-new teeth.

Innovative technology and solutions that work

As the most advanced dental implant treatment currently available, All-on-4® involves the most cutting-edge technology. Next Smile Australia and Nobel Biocare bring you the latest innovations in technology to ensure the treatment you receive is world–class.
