Why Choosing A ‘Centre of Excellence’ All-on-4® Clinic Matters

Finding out that All-on-4® is the right treatment option for you is an exciting discovery. But it’s not enough for a clinic to offer the service. Quality and results matter, and they can vary quite a bit between providers. While All-on-4® has changed the lives of tens of thousands of patients, you need a clinic that offers you the highest quality of lasting results. 

Swiss company Nobel Biocare is the research partner of All-on-4® pioneer Dr Paulo Malo, and it has its own distinct method for recognising exceptional quality. Clinics that meet Nobel Biocare’s high standards are awarded the title of ‘Centre of Excellence’.

All-on-4® is an advanced form of restorative dentistry designed to treat patients who have lost all or most of their teeth. As common as they are in Australia, untreated gaps in your smile can lead to issues like malocclusion and difficulty chewing, as well as eventual health problems elsewhere in the body. Gaining an authentic-looking new smile not only can help your self-confidence it can also help to keep you physically healthy.

All-on-4® provides you with a new smile that looks and feels real in as little as 24 hours. A procedure with a 98% success rate, All-on-4® is designed to avoid the issues that regular dental implants have, such as long recovery times and dental bone grafting. Yet there are many providers, and choosing an All-on-4® Centre of Excellence is the best way to ensure you’ll be happy with your treatment.

How a Clinic Obtains the Status of ‘Centre of Excellence’

A world-renowned leader in dental implant treatment and innovation with more than 25 years of success, Nobel Biocare has a deep knowledge of dental implants. Their team knows what’s involved in the effective delivery of All-on-4® and can recognise when an All-on-4® dental implant clinic meets the level of experience, training and quality required to earn the title. The gold standard is ‘the Malo Protocol’, a two-stage process pioneered by Dr Malo himself, with a provisional bridge placed immediately after dental implant surgery.

For a clinic to earn the title of an All-on-4® Centre of Excellence, Nobel Biocare needs to have identified three key elements. The practitioner needs to have particular surgical experience with All-on-4®, have completed extensive training and have performed All-on-4® dental implant surgery consistently at a high level.

About Nobel Biocare Australia

Nobel Biocare Australia is the Australian branch of Nobel Biocare, a world-leading Swiss provider of implant-based dental restorations. Nobel Biocare offers lasting solutions that are alternatives to uncomfortable dentures and traditional dental implants.

In the 1990s, Dr Paulo Malo and Nobel Biocare joined forces to build upon Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark’s research from the 1950s. Brånemark discovered osseointegration, the principle by which dental implants fuse with the jawbone, and his work took the field of implant dentistry to new heights.

Dr Malo and Nobel Biocare devised a concept in which four dental implants could be inserted into the jawbone at a 45-degree angle to support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth. All-on-4® was created, and in 1998, Dr Malo treated his first patient with the technique that is now considered the standard for practitioners to meet.
