Having missing teeth is a serious concern. Not only can it affect your self-confidence, but it can also harm your oral health, overall well-being, and job opportunities. Fortunately, you can restore all of those things, along with your smile, when you turn to Next Smile Australia for All-on-4® dental implants in Wollongong.
Next Smile Wollongong’s compassionate team understands the trauma of losing teeth and how important your smile is to the image you present to the world. They can also cause several physical problems and illnesses, including malocclusion, difficulty chewing or speaking, weakened jawbone or gum disease. These problems can cause other teeth to fall out or bacteria to spread to other parts of the body, leading to health problems such as heart disease or stroke.
Dental implants are one of the most effective treatments currently available for missing teeth. Traditionally, the method of carrying out implants involves inserting a titanium screw into the jawbone for each missing tooth and affixing a “crown” or artificial tooth to the top.
All-on-4® is an advanced form of restorative dentistry pioneered by Dr Paulo Malo in 1998 in collaboration with Nobel Biocare. All-on-4®’s simple but sophisticated approach means you no longer have to deal with the worst aspects of traditional implants, such as bone grafting or long recovery periods. All-on-4® will provide you with a brand-new set of natural-looking, flawless teeth in a matter of days.
If you’re after a dentist in Wollongong that provides All-on-4®, Next Smile dental surgeons have been trained by Dr Malo himself and undertake treatments according to his methods. Methods that have successfully treated hundreds of thousands of patients and have a 98% success rate, according to long-term studies.
Next Smile treats both Wollongong locals and visitors. Just 80 kilometres south of Sydney, this small coastal city in New South Wales offers boundless activities no matter how you like to spend your time. There’s the scenery of Grand Pacific Drive or Wollongong Botanic Garden, beautiful beaches, art galleries, shopping opportunities and Lake Illawarra’s relaxed family feel. Next Smile Wollongong is located in the suburb of Corrimal, close to the beach, nature and accommodation.
If you’re excited about finding your smile again in this region, Next Smile’s All-on-4® dental implants in Wollongong could be your ideal treatment choice.
What is All-on-4®?
All-on-4® is an innovative and medically advanced process that makes getting the smile of your dreams easier and closer than ever before. The result of a research partnership between Dr Paulo Malo and Nobel Biocare, All-on-4® holds an entire dental arch in place with just four implants: two in the front and two in the back.
At Next Smile Australia, we carry out our treatments in line with ‘The Malo Protocol’, a two-bridge process pioneered by Dr Malo. Stage one involves the construction of your ‘provisional bridge’ or first set of teeth, which you’ll wear for three to six months. This will give you a convincing-looking set of new teeth immediately so that you can move on with your life. Once the implants have had the chance to fuse with your jawbone, you’ll be ready for the second stage of the process: fitting your “final bridge" or permanent set of teeth.
All-on-4® offers numerous advantages over more traditional forms of implant dentistry. You’ll receive your first set of provisional teeth no more than 24 hours after your implant surgery and often immediately afterwards. You can walk out of the clinic and show the world your new teeth immediately.
With only four implants required for the procedure, you completely avoid the need for bone grafting. Our in-house Nobel Biocare labs with advanced-level technology produce realistic solutions, and all of our dentists and surgeons are trained by Dr Malo himself.
How Long Does it Take to Get All-on-4® Dental Implants?
At Next Smile, our number one priority is finding the right treatment for your personal situation. We don’t do a one-size-fits-all approach. Before embarking on an All-on-4® journey, we meet with you to discuss your dental goals and history in a judgment-free environment. If All-on-4® is the right treatment for you, a dental surgeon will talk you through the process of your All-on-4® treatment journey.
After you’ve been approved for All-on-4®, the treatment process is relatively quick. The exact length will depend on your treatment plan and personal situation, but Next Smile Australia will start the process of crafting your first set of provisional teeth immediately. Often, you’ll receive this set of teeth immediately upon waking from your surgery, but it will always happen within a 24-hour timeframe.
But the speed at which you receive your new teeth isn’t the only reason you should choose Next Smile as your provider of All-on-4® dental implants in Wollongong.
