What is All-on-4®?
All-on-4® is an advanced method of restorative dentistry that can give you a set of natural-looking and feeling teeth to smile proudly about. With innovation, proven techniques and state-of-the-art technology at our Next Smile clinics, achieving your bold, beautiful smile just got much easier.
This advanced method of restorative dentistry, pioneered by Dr Paulo Malo in partnership with Nobel Biocare, is world-leading in restorative dentistry with the highest quality materials and a 98% success rate to date.
All-on-4® takes on the minimalist approach where four implants are inserted into the jawbone, two in the front and two in the back, to support an entire bridge of teeth to create the foundation for your new natural-looking smile. Because of the minimalism in the approach, within 24 hours, but usually on the same day, you will be grinning from ear to ear with your provisional set of teeth ready to go.
Part of the Malo Protocol, the reason for the 98% success rate, is the two-bridge system. In the first stage, within 24 hours but usually on the same day of surgery, you will have a provisional bridge fitted. While your mouth heals over the next few months, you will already experience the life-changing effects of having a beautiful smile before your final teeth are fitted in the second, final stage.
A beautiful smile and immediate confidence boost are not the only benefits you find with All-on-4® dental implants on the Gold Coast. You can rest easy knowing with the right dental hygiene and care, just like your natural teeth, your new smile can last you a lifetime. All-on-4® presents you with fully functioning teeth as if they were your own. This form of restorative dentistry has innovative techniques and advanced technology. The Malo Protocol means the entire healing process is shorter than other traditional implants, leading to a higher success rate. The minimalist approach means no need for invasive and painful procedures such as bone grafts. You can have peace of mind when getting All-on-4® dental implants at the Gold Coast with the highly experienced team of dentists leading in professionalism, empathy, and integrity.
The not-so-long journey to your naturally beautiful smile starts with a consultation with our team. In the consultation, we find out more about your history and goals, as well as take jawbone scans, digital impressions and photographic imaging to show the current state of your smile and the possibilities to come. Once a tailor-made plan has been formed to meet your requirements and preferences, our lab will start on your provisional bridge made from the highest quality Nobel Biocare materials. These will be presented and fitted usually once you wake from surgery or within 24 hours. While you enjoy your new provisional bridge, the lab is busy manufacturing and refining your final bridge to your preferences. With trial fittings for your final for the optimal shape and fit, the post-surgery Malo Protocol involves an assessment of the healing, health, and stability of the new implants to ensure a 98% success rate and a lifetime of smiles for you.
How is All-on-4® Different From Other Restorative Dentistry?
Next Smile Super Clinic has a mutual passion for transforming lives and smiles with All-on-4® dental implants on the Gold Coast. But how does this advanced method of restorative dentistry compare to more traditional forms?
Single tooth implants
Implants are not new to restorative dentistry and have been around in different forms for centuries. The single-tooth implant as we know it today was stumbled upon by an orthopaedic surgeon in 1952. He discovered the right combination of a titanium cylinder and a rabbit femur fused in a bone healing experiment. Technology has come a long way since 1952, and now, with All-on-4®, so has restorative dentistry.
Traditional implants are where a singular, usually titanium screw, is inserted into the jawbone where a tooth is missing and a new tooth is attached. It is a slow process that can take up to 12 months, particularly when needing multiple implants. With the All-on-4® dental implant procedure, you have a new smile within 24 hours of surgery that is fully functional where you can eat, smile, and laugh straightaway. The minimalist approach of All-on-4® means there is no need for painful and invasive bone grafts, where an additional piece of bone is added to the structure of your jaw. No need for bone grafts means the healing process is sped up and the need for fewer appointments leads to a lower average cost than traditional implants, saving you time and money to enjoy your new smile.
The main benefit of All-on-4® dental implants compared to dentures is longevity. Even with proper care, dentures can only last 5-10 years before causing issues, whereas, with All-on-4®, you can get a lifetime of natural-looking and feeling smiles.
Dentures are a set of false teeth that rely on various muscles in your mouth and a bit of suction created from your gums to hold them in place. Because dentures are not secured in your mouth, they can come with a range of problems that are avoided with All-on-4® dental implants. With dentures, discomfort, rubbing, and difficulty speaking are often felt in the initial stages while the muscles in the mouth adjust to the foreign object they are now holding in place. This can also overstimulate the salivary glands causing some to spit or drool unintentionally. Often while the mouth adjusts to try and coordinate with the new set of unsecured teeth, it is suggested to secure dentures with adhesive, which may also cause further gum issues.
When you get your All-on-4® dental implants at the Gold Coast, there is no need for adhesive, specialised hygiene care, such as soaking overnight, or specialised products. Your All-on-4® dental implants are just like the natural smile you remember and only require the same amount of care as your natural teeth did. They are secured in your mouth, so you are ready to sing with your friends, laugh and live as soon as you get your provisional bridge.
